Haunted Places: The National Directory: A Guidebook to Ghostly Abodes, Sacred Sites, UFO Landings, and Other Supernatural Locationsby Dennis William Hauck
In almost any town in America, or within a short drive, there are places where strange things happen...Hundreds of houses, hotels, cemetaries, schools, and museums are believed to have resident ghosts and poltergeists. Many campgrounds and parks are on land considered sacred or inhabited by spirits. Some areas are thought to generate vortexes of psychic energy, while others are known for frequent sightings of Bigfoot creatures or UFOs.
From Maine to Hawaii, this fascinating book leads you to more than 2,000 haunted places, many of them open to the public, in all fifty states. You'll find ghosts famous and obscure from the lawless days of the Gold Rush, from the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the Roaring Twenties--even ghosts who first appeared in the 1990s. Entries are organized alphabetically by state and are referenced to an extensive bibliography of sources. Addresses, phone numbers, and travel directions are provided for all sites.
Haunted Places is a most unusual travel guide for the tourist who has seen it all and an indispensable casebook for all those interested in the paranormal.

This book is one of the best ghost story books I've ever read. It gives you details about hundreds of haunted places you can actually visit, and a story about each one. Presents the facts without embellishing. Great if you just want to read ghost stories or if you want to visit the places.
