If you have just read the article on Oddstufflab about the top ten most haunted places to visit, you would have noticed that Plymouth Massachusetts was not mentioned, but it certainly shouldn”t be left out. Lets explore the creepy goings on in the old buildings that lie within the city.
America”s Home town, as it”s more commonly known as, is home to Mayflower and Plymouth Rock which is said to have many haunted hospitals, forests and abandoned buildings.
Firstly, the Myles Standish forest is named after a pilgrim who was famous for building a fort in Plymouth and who enforced attacks on the native Americans. Within the forest lies an abandoned mental hospital, said to have strange goings on.
Plus, many murders took place in the forest and in 2003, a man was jailed after being proven guilty of a murder in 1977. Reading about freaky phenomenons is even more scary if you are by yourself in the house.
Even if you are at the PC playing or in your room reading, the tiniest creek or noise can make you jump. Normally it is just the wind, or your pet running around and making noise. Or is it?
If that didn”t scare you enough, then you haven”t heard about Spooner house, located in down town Plymouth. Myth has it, that a little girl named Abigail, haunts one of the rooms, causing trouble by playing with window shutters and rustling in the bushes outside. Even when the house is locked up, music can be heard coming from inside. Other visitors claim that the bedroom of the little girl is noticeably cooler than the other rooms. This is said to be a sign of spirits in the area. People have also claimed to have seen a blonde girl peering out of a bedroom window.
