From bone-chilling bloodstains to fear-inducing phantom sightings, these are the seven most haunted places in the U.S.\r
\r
Number 7: The Bird Cage Theatre\r
From 1881 until 1889, the Bird Cage Theatre was used not only as a theatre, but also as a brothel & gambling parlor in Tombstone, Arizona. This was a place where miners occupying the town during the late 19th centurys silver boom could gamble, buy beer & , & watch masquerade balls. The place had a legendary reputation for being a rowdy spot where fights would often break out. Bullet holes lined the walls of the building & its believed that at least 26 people lost their lives here. Its also said to be haunted.\r
\r
To this day, the theatre operates as a tourist attrion, where workers & visitors alike have reported paranormal ivity. Some claim to have seen the spirits of prostitutes & cowboys roaming the hallways while there are also rumors that sounds of a 19th century-style saloon party can still be heard some nights.\r
\r
On one occasion, a tourist found a $100 poker chip on one of the tables, something that had never been seen before. The manager then locked it in a safe with the plan of eventually showing it to experts. But when he later reopened the safe, however, the chip was gone.\r
\r
Another eerie instance involved Wyatt Earp, the sheriff famous for the O.K. Corral shootout. Wyatt Earps statue once sat in the theatre box that he preferred when the theatre was fully operational. But curiously, every single morning for six months, his hat would be found in the middle of the floor. After consulting a historian, the theatre was told that the statue was in the wrong box. It was mistakenly placed in the box that the Clanton family frequented; the significance being that notorious outlaw Billy Clanton was an enemy of Earps & was killed by the sheriff during the infamous O.K. Corral shootout. Clantons ghost is said to be a visitor of the theatre & thus, was the one responsible for moving the hat.\r
\r
Number 6: The Biltmore Hotel\r
Located in Greensboro, North Carolina, the Biltmore Hotel was erected in 1895 for textile manufurer, Cone Mills, but was later renovated into a hotel. It also served as a brothel during the mid-20th century & still operates as a hotel to this day. But there have been frequently-reported encounters with ghosts here.\r
\r
Room 32, for example, is haunted by Philip. Philip worked as an accountant for Cone Mills back when the building served as the companys office. One day, his dead body was discovered in the alleyway surrounded by glass. People initially assumed he commit suicide. But when investigators turned the body over, they found that his throat had been slit. It was later uncovered that he had been embezzling money from the company & that his murder might have been retribution. The case was never solved, however, & his ghost is rumored to haunt room 32; the room that used to be his office & was the room where he was thrown out of. Patrons of the room claim to see a man standing near the window looking out. Some female guests have claimed the ghost has even hopped into bed with them!\r
\r
Room 23 is also said to be haunted. During its time as a brothel, a prostitute named Lydia worked at the Biltmore & always took her clients to room 23. She died there after she was pushed down the hotels stairs. These days, patrons who stay in room 23 claim to see a red-headed woman in the room. Shes also been known to take a disliking towards drunks. Hotel guests whove had too much to drink claim to have a tough time walking up the stairs, almost as if someone was pushing them down the very same stairs on which Lydia was murdered.\r
\r
Number 5: The Old Idaho State Penitentiary\r
The Old Idaho State Penitentiary opened in 1872 & housed some of the worst criminals in the region for just over a century. By the 1930s, the prison garnered a reputation for being extremely violent. Famous criminals such as Lyda Southard & Harry Orchard were imprisoned here. Over the years, many riots erupted over the poor living conditions at the prison. In 1973, all the prisoners were moved to a newly built prison and “The Old Pen,” as it was known, eventually became a tourist attrion.\r
\r
According to the website Roadtrippers, people who visit The Old Pen experience odd, inexplicable phenomena. Some visitors, for example, claim theyve been touched by unseen forces. The museums employees say they hear wailing & screaming sounds when no one else is around; perhaps those of the inmates ghosts.\r
