There are certain haunted places where the restless spirits of the night linger. They manifestas eerie voices and strange perfumes; they move things about; they creep outof the shadows as apparitions. Sometimes they evenattack.
These are the places, through years of experiences and unnerving reputation, that are considered the most haunted places in theworld. » 0 User(s) likes this.

The Myrtles Plantation
Built in 1796 by General David Bradford, this stately old home on Myrtles Plantation is said to be haunted be several restless ghosts. Some researchers say as many as ten murdershave been committed there, butothers, such as Troy Taylor and David Wisehart, have only been able to confirm one murder at Myrtles. (Those two authors provide a very good history of the house in their article, The Legends, Lore & Lies of The Myrtles Plantation ).
Even they agree, however, that the place is seriously haunted and easily qualifies as one of the "most haunted." These are some of the ghosts that allegedly haunt the house:
. Chloe a former slave who was allegedly hung on the premises for killing two little girls. (Those murders and even the existence of Chloe are in question.)
. The ghosts of the two murdered children have been seen playing on theveranda.
. William Drew Winter an attorney who lived at Myrtles from 1860 to 1871. He was shot on the side porch of the house by a stranger. With his life's blood pouringfrom his body, Winter staggered into the house and began to climb the stairs to the secondfloor... but didn't make it. He collapsed and died on the 17th step. It is his last dying footsteps that can still be heard on the staircase to thisday. (Winter's murder is the only one that has been verified.)
. The ghosts of otherslaves allegedly occasionally show up to ask if they can do any chores.
. The grand piano has often been heard to play by itself, repeating one haunting chord.
Now a bed and breakfast, The Myrtles Plantation has opened its doors to guests who often report disturbances in the night. My colleague, Stacey Jones, founder of Central New York Ghost Hunters , reports on her stay there:
"It was a spectacular place to stay, if you keep an open mind. While taking the guided tour, I saw what looked like a heavyset African-American woman wearing an apron walk by the door, on the porch. Thinking itwas a worker in period dress, I peeked out and no one was there. We stayed in the children's bedroom, and my best-friend (who was a non-believer at the time) experienced quite a bit of paranormal phenomena. She washeld down in the bedand constantly pokedall night. She was unable to move or cry out for help. She didn't think the stay was as great as I did.They let you ghost hunt on the grounds whenever you like, but you can't ghost hunt in the main house without an escort. I suggest setting up a video camera in your roomand bring a tape recorder to obtain EVP."

The tower of london
The Tower of London, one of the most famous and well-preserved historical buildings in the world, may also be one of the most haunted. This isdue, no doubt, to the scores of executions, murders and torturesthat have taken placewithin its walls over the last 1,000 years. Dozens upon dozens of ghost sightings have been reported in and around the Tower. On one winter day in 1957 at 3 a.m., a guard was disturbed by something striking the top of his guardhouse. When he stepped outside to investigate, he saw a shapeless white figure on top of the tower. It was then realized that onthat very same date, February 12, Lady Jane Grey was beheaded in 1554.
Perhaps the most well-known ghostly resident of the Tower is the spirit of Ann Boleyn , one of the wives of Henry VIII, who was also beheaded in the Tower in 1536. Her ghost has been spotted on many occasions, sometimes carrying her head, on Tower Green and in the Tower Chapel Royal.
Other ghosts of the Tower include those of Henry VI, Thomas a Becket and Sir Walter Raleigh. One of the most gruesome ghost stories connected with the Tower of London describes death of the Countess of Salisbury. According to one account, "the Countess was sentenced to death in 1541 following her alleged involvement in criminal activities (although it is now widely believed that she was probably innocent). After being sent strugglingto the scaffold, she ran from the block and was pursued until she was hackedto death by the axe man." Her execution ceremony has been seen re-enacted by spirits on Tower Green.
