I'm not entirely sure why (because we are talking about a girl who is deathly afraid of all scary movies) but I love hearing about ghost stories. I've gone on tons of ghost tours in St. Augustine (one last weekend in fact) and several in Savannah, GA., and even though I get somewhat scared, I still enjoy them. Maybe it's the history buff in me, or perhaps the adrenaline rush that comes with it, or maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment....in any case, when I saw this link to all these stories about (supposed "real" haunted homes I couldn't pass up checking it out.
So for all of you that are just as curious as me.... click on the link above to see more about haunted houses such as:
Stranahan House in Ft. Lauderdale, FL (where I'm from...eek!)
Lizzie Borden House in Fall River, Mass.
La Lalaurie House in New Orleans, LA
Hull House in Chicago, IL
