loudly chants a voodoo curse to protect the grounds from vandals. St. Francisville. Louisiana is also home to one of the most haunted houses in the country—Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville. Built in 1794, the home was the site of at least one murder and several accidental deaths. Legend has it that in 1817, homeowner Clark Woodruff tortured one of his slaves, Chloe, for eavesdropping. Seeking revenge, she allegedly poisoned his wife and two children. Urban legends claim that other slaves hung Chloe from a nearby tree and threw her body in the river. Since Chloe’s death, her ghost has been seen and photographed wandering the house, accompanied by the sound of crying children.

Salem. In 1692, mass hysteria struck the town of Salem, leading to witch trials, torture, and public hangings. Judge Jonathan Corwin was a local magistrate who investigated and sentenced the alleged witches, all of whom pleaded their innocence. Known as the “Witch House,” Judge Corwin’s home still stands at the corner of North and Essex Streets in Salem. In Peabody Essex Museum, hundreds of original documents pertaining to the witch trials are on display. In 1992, the Salem Witch Trials Tercentenary Memorial was dedicated near the Charter Street Old Burying Point.

The blackout was blamed on a tripped 230-kilovolt transmission line near Queenston, Ontario. However, a significant number of UFO sightings were reported at the same time as the blackout, and further investigation discovered that a sudden surge of power from an unknown source caused the phenomenon.

Cloudcroft. Located at 9,000 feet, The Lodge in Cloudcroft is reported to be home to a ghost named Rebecca, who was murdered at the mountain inn in the 1930s.

Gold Hill. A mystifying force field is found in Gold Hill. Native Americans dubbed the region “the forbidden ground” when their horses refused to enter the area. In the early 1900s, scientists described the area as a crisscross of magnetic lines that produce a strange vortex. Spinning and gravitating objects and other optical illusions occur constantly within the Oregon Vortex. If you visit the region, don’t be surprised if you can’t stand straight up, or if you appear shorter or taller depending on which direction you face. You’re invited to capture the force field’s visual and perceptual phenomena on film. Lincoln City.
