The Mütter Museum, of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, is home to two floors full of preserved human specimens (on racks, in glass cabinets, in jars) and a number of medical tools that look more like torture devices. Included among the museum’s vast array of fascinating, disturbing, and sometimes scary items are a 9-foot human colon, and a corpse called “Soap Lady.” You’ll figure out why when you go.
2. The Winchester Mystery House, San Jose, California
The Winchester Mystery House began as a project for the grieving widow Sarah Winchester, who tragically lost her infant daughter to marasmus, and then her husband to tuberculosis 15 years later. After their deaths, Sarah visited a medium, who told her that her family had been cursed by the roving spirits of people who’d been killed by Winchester rifles (designed by Sarah’s late husband, and the source of her enormous fortune). It’s said that Sarah was instructed to move west and build a great house to keep the spirits — and that her own life would be safe so long as she never stopped building. Sarah purchased the then-unfinished farm house in 1884 and got to work. By the turn of the century, the house was seven stories high, and featured a number of odd features: extremely long hallways, staircases leading into solid ceiling, and doors that open right into walls. Strange sights and sounds were reported in the house during Sarah’s lifetime, and have only continued since her death in 1922.

10. Clinton Road, West Milford, New Jersey

Katie Heaney Clinton Road has been said to be the “most haunted road in America.” Drivers along the 10-mile stretch have reported everything from strangely dressed wanderers, to ghosts, to evidence of satanic rituals, to phantom trucks that chase them to its end. The strip of road also features, naturally, a dead man’s curve. Take extra caution at the Ghost Boy Bridge — it’s said that the spirit of a little boy who lives underneath it will do his best to draw you into the water and never let you out.
11. Waverly Hills Sanatorium, Louisville, Kentucky
The Waverly Hills Sanatorium opened in 1910, and was intended to house 40 to 50 tuberculosis patients. But a tuberculosis outbreak hit Jefferson County soon afterward, spurring construction of an expanded hospital — one that could hold over 400 patients. Once the antibiotic used to prevent tuberculosis was invented, there was little need for the hospital, and it closed in 1962. While urban legend holds that over 63,000 people died at the sanatorium during the time it was in operation, average death rates for the hospital suggest the total number would be closer to 8,212. Still, the sanatorium has gained a reputation for being one of the most — if not the most — haunted places in the United States. The building offers tours and opportunities for paranormal investigation.
12. Lemp Mansion, St. Louis, Missouri
The Lemp Mansion was home to the Lemp family, whose William J. Lemp Brewing Co. beer grew to dominate the St. Louis beer market and earned the family a substantial fortune. Tragedy struck the family when William’s favorite son, Frederick, died mysteriously in 1901. William shot himself three years later. His son, William Jr., took over. But the brewery business began to falter, and the arrival of the Prohibition era ultimately forced the plant to close. William Jr.’s sister Elsa committed suicide in 1920. Two years later, the brewery was sold at auction, and William Jr. shot himself too. Many years later, William Jr. and Elsa’s brother Charles wouldalso commit suicide by gunshot. The immense amount of tragedy that took place in the mansion has contributed to its haunted reputation; the house now operates as a hotel, restaurant, and event venue.
13. The Lizzie Borden House, Fall River, Massachusetts
In 1892, Lizzie Borden’s father and stepmother were murdered with an axe. Though the case remains technically unsolved, Lizzie is widely considered to be responsible for the murders. She was said to have behaved erratically during questioning, offering contradictory versions of events, and remaining curiously poised and calm. It’s also said that she burned a dress in her oven a few days after the murders — though she claimed it was only because she’d gotten paint on it. Lizzie was tried and acquitted; nobody else was ever charged for the murders. Lizzie moved to another house after the trial, remaining in town for the rest of her life despite being ostracized by the Fall River community. (The house now operates as a bed-and-breakfast.)
14. St. Augustine Light, St. Augustine, Florida
Built in 1874, St. Augustine Light is the name of the active lighthouse at the north end of Anastasia Island in St. Augustine, Florida. The original building, established in 1824, was the first lighthouse built in Florida; that building crashed into the sea in 1880 due to coastline erosion. The collapse had been anticipated, though — construction on the new building (the one that stands today) began in 1870. Many visitors to the lighthouse have reported witnessing paranormal activity including shadows and voices. People have also reported seeing two young girls standing on the lighthouse catwalk. (The girls are said to be the daughters of the man who was superintendent of lighthouse construction during the 1870s; both drowned in an accident that took place during the building of the second lighthouse structure.) The lighthouse offers “Dark of the Moon” tours that included guided paranormal investigation of the premises.
