I was just watching this earlier.  Number 3 was the freakiest.  Always something about the road and haunting.  Hauntings in open places in regards to enclosed environment like a house.

#4 The Myrtles Plantation Mention the American South and you'll picture large plantation houses. These iconic structures embody the beauty of the American home and many also hold a unique past. One such home is the Myrtle's Plantation.Built in 1796 by lawyer, Whiskey Dave Bradford, the plantation was passed down to his daughter Sara and her husband Judge Clark Woodruff. The property has withstood the test of time and has seen wars come and go; switched between multiple owners; and also experienced multiple deaths. It's these deaths and the souls of the spirits that remain that has dubbed the Myrtle Plantation as "one of the most haunted homes" in America. The home is said to be haunted by about 12 ghosts, some of which died on the property, while others are strongly associated to the home and families that lived there. One of the most prominent stories is that of a servant slave named Chloe.

#3 Tale Of Resurrection Mary Chicago is a large city with it’s fair share of haunted houses and creepy graveyards. But one terrifying ghost haunts the highways of the area and she is known locally as Resurrection Mary. More than three dozen people have encountered, Seen and even spoke with Mary over the years and they all report similar accounts. On such is that of Jerry Paulus in 1939 who was at a local dance hall when he spotted a beautiful girl. He approached her and they spoke, laughed and danced for hours. He described her as rather quiet and also noticed she was cold to the touch.

#2 La Laurie House in New Orleans One of the most famous places in New Orleans, the La Laurie House has lived on in infamy, not just for it’s beautiful historical structure but also for what went on inside. Owned by Madame Delphine MacCarthy, who was better known as Madame La Laurie after she remarried, the house sits on a corner in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The family first moved in - in 1832. Madame La Laurie was among the most influential French-Creole ladies in the city, known for her business skills, beauty and wealth. Her two daughters were among the finest dressed girls in the city and her family was well respected. The home on 1140 Royal Street was a hotspot for social activity. It was a three-story mansion that looked like a plain, boxy corner home from the outside, but inside it had lavish interiors with bright parlors sporting hundreds of candles and grand chandeliers.

#1 Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery The Bachelor's Grove Cemetery looks like any ordinary cemetery. Worn out gravestones peek from the Earth here and there while the surroundings area is covered with trees. The grounds around the cemetery were once home to immigrant settlers. It's asserted that the first burials there happened around the 1840s. However, others suggest that the land had been used as a burial site for German immigrant workers who got killed on the job as early as the 1830s. The area is also believed to be a favorite dumping ground for Chicago mobsters during the 1930s and 40s. A small lagoon in the back of the was said to be the place for hit men to kill and dump snitches or anybody that crossed them. So there were 4 EXTREMELY TERRIFYING AND SCARY REAL HAUNTINGS With so many people experiencing such strange occurences it’s hard to believe that they could all be made up out of thin air. Perhaps, and possibly even more likley, Something is left behind here on earth, after someone has passed away.

Once again John, thank for waking the forum up. To be perfectly honest, I’m a little reluctant initially endorsing Inn’s, Motels, Hotels, Bed & Breakfasts until they prove themselves first hand. Mind you, one of our team’s mainstay investigative locations was a Bed & Breakfast here in my home state. That location has it’s share of unusual activity but it was earned status through many revisits.

My difficulty becomes even more apparent when a business thrives on its curiosities through overnight stays with an alleged reputation of being haunted. Especially when the claim of activity is historically incorrect in origins. In example, the Myrtle Plantation, a plethora of reports and endorsements from visits of a vengeful slave girl named Chloe which under further research never existed along with other major inaccuracies including a gross exaggeration of 10 people that died on the premises when in fact Troy Taylors research (a notable paranormal historian) clearly suggests only one.

I’m not trying to discount the possibility of activity at the Myrtle’s. An establishment with a long stemming history can produce some great tales of hauntings. It can exist almost anywhere. My own house is haunted and I frequently endorse transient activity in almost any location if one is willing to be patient with multiple visits.

Check out Troy Taylors’s writeup on the Myrtle’s.

I may add more to this thread but I’m very much a millennial in mentality. Any dissertation evolving past several paragraphs remain unread due to gnat like attention span on my part and others willing to read past the first paragraph :)
