The 11 Most Haunted Places in West Virginia

West Virginia has plenty of paranormal activity to share. The Mountain State can boost apparitions of Civil War Soldiers, encounters with extraterrestrial beings, and ghosts of murder victims still seeking justice along with many other paranormal anomalies.

Join us as we dig deeper into the 11 most haunted places in West Virginia.

1. Lake Shawnee Amusement Park, Mercer County

Lake Shawnee Amusement Park, Mercer County

In the late 1700s, there was a bloody altercation between a white settler named Mitchell Clay and the local tribe of Shawnee Indians.  This resulted in the tragic death of 3 of the Clay children and a number of Shawnee warriors.

Some say that these deaths have left a curse on the land. This may well be the case because in the 1920s a local businessman bought the land and built the Lake Shawnee Amusement Park.

Over the next couple of years, several people died in accidents at the park and it ended up closing down in 1966.

The abandoned remains of the park are now considered to be one of the most haunted locations in West Virginia.

There are regular paranormal tours of the property and many people have reported seeing apparitions of a man and a little girl dressed in pink.

2. North Bend Rail Trail Tunnel No 19, Ritchie County

North Bend Rail Trail Tunnel No 19, Ritchie County

The North Bend Trail extends for a total of 72 miles and is very popular with hikers, cyclists, and horseback riders. However, all of them need to make sure that they are particularly careful when navigating tunnel number 9, which is also known as the Silver Run Tunnel, as it is said to be extremely haunted!

As far back as 1910 reports started to emerge of a young lady in a flowing white dress standing on the tracks.

She was first seen by an engineer who brought his train to an abrupt halt thinking that he was going to hit her, but when he goes out to look for her she had gone – vanished into thin air.

Over the years many of his predecessors have experienced the same thing. It is not at all clear who she is, or why she is haunting the tunnel.

However, it is said that some human bones were uncovered under a house very close to the tunnel!

If you want to go looking for this lady in white then you are going to need a flashlight – even in the daylight since the damp tunnel is 1376 feet long and daylight does not penetrate it!

3. 22 Mine Road, Logan

22 Mine Road, Logan

Mamie Thurman lived the life of a carefree flapper during the Prohibition era, but it seems that she may have thrown a little too much caution to the wind since she ended up being discovered dead on the lonely 22 Mine Road.

A local handyman was charged with the murder, but most people believed it to be a well-known banker that Mamie had an affair with who was the real murderer.

Her body also disappeared and there are no records of a burial.

Perhaps this is why her restless soul is said to be haunting 22 Mine Road.

She is often seen there in search of justice and a final resting place.

4. Lewisburg Historic District, Lewisburg

Lewisburg Historic District, Lewisburg

One thing that West Virginia seems to have in abundance is towns that are haunted as opposed to just single buildings. One such town is Lewisburg, in particular the historic district.

Visitors to the town say that late at night they hear moaning and cries of pain coming from the Old Stone Church. Since the building served as a Civil War hospital this is thought to be the spirits of wounded soldiers.

The General Lewis Inn is also very haunted with up to 3 spirits in residence, all of whom are tricky and mischievous!

However, the most famous spirit here is an entity that is known as The Greenbrier Ghost.

This is the ghost of Zona Hester Shue, a lady who was murdered by her husband and who helped to convict him when appearing as a ghost!

5. Droop Mountain Battlefield, Pocahontas County

Droop Mountain Battlefield, Pocahontas County

Droop Mountain Battlefield has become a memorial commemorating West Virginia’s final significant battle during the Civil War.

On November 6, 1863, Brigadier General William Averell’s Union troops staged a crushing victor over the Confederates, driving them south into what is now Virginia.

The site became a national park in 1929 as a memorial to those who lost their lives here.

Since then, visitors have been reporting a variety of paranormal activity including the sound of galloping horses, and sightings of a headless confederate soldier and another soldier who is napping against a tree!

6. Harpers Ferry, Jefferson County

Harpers Ferry, Jefferson County

The town of Harpers Ferry is well known for its ghosts. In fact, some of the hauntings are said to go back hundreds of years!

There are various buildings around the town that have a spooky story or two attached to them making Harpers Ferry one of the most haunted towns in West Virginia.

One of the most popular tales involves a female spirit in 18th-century style attires who is often seen looking down at people from the window of Harper House.

There are often tales of several spirits including wounded soldiers and an old priest who are said to haunt St Peter’s Catholic Church, which was used as a hospital in the Civil War.

However, the most common experience is for visitors to hear the distant strains of fife and drum music which is said to be the phantom army performing some marching drills.

7. Morgantown, Monongalia County

Morgantown, Monongalia County

Morgantown stands on the site of the famous Decker’s Creek Massacre which occurred back in 1759.

A total of eight settlers were brutally slaughtered by Delaware Indians in approximately the center of what is now the city of Morgantown and home to West Virginia University.

With so much blood staining the land, it is no surprise that there are literally spirits wandering the streets of Morgantown.

The University in particular seems to attract plenty of paranormal activity with many of its buildings reported to be haunted.

The most famous of the campus ghosts is probably the spirit of Elizabeth Moore who was the original founder of the institute from which the university grew.

8. Blennerhassett Hotel, Parkersburg STAY HERE

Blennerhassett Hotel, Parkersburg

Blennerhassett Hotel in Parkersburg is one of the most haunted buildings in West Virginia.

The Queen Anne-style building is reportedly haunted by William Chancellor who was responsible for building the property in the late 1800s.

Guests staying at the hotel have claimed to encounter the ghosts of children playing in the hallways and others say that they have seen a man dressed in a tuxedo in the mirrors.

Staff at the hotel also say that mysterious knocking and other unexplained sounds are fairly commonplace.

The hotel even offers ghost tours as part of their ‘Haunted Parkersburg’ package deal!

9. West Virginia Penitentiary, Moundsville

West Virginia Penitentiary, Moundsville

West Virginia Penitentiary opened back in 1875 and it is widely regarded as being one of the most haunted prisons in the United States – it is definitely one of the most haunted places in West Virginia.

This prison has seen it all over the years including several riots, fires, and over 100 executions.

Even before it was closed, prisoners and guards experienced paranormal activity in the building and it has only escalated since the prison ceased operation.

Now visitors tend to see phantom inmates and shadow men along with unexplained noises, cold spots, disembodied voices, and agonizing screams.

This is not a place for the faint of heart that is for sure!

There are regular tours of the prison which offer the opportunity to check out the electric chair that has been nicknamed ‘Old Sparky’.

The bravest souls can also participate in an overnight stay!

10. Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Weston

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Weston

The Gothic stone structure that is Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is somewhat infamous in the paranormal community!

Even looking at it from the outside you would probably assume that it is haunted just based on how it looks!

The building certainly lives up to expectations.

This is without a doubt one of the most haunted places in the state.

Construction on the asylum began in 1858 and originally it was built to house just 250 patients.

However, the facility reached its peak of around 2400 patients in the 1950s at which time they were terribly overcrowded and living in extremely poor conditions.

It closed down in 1994 and reopened as a tourist location.

It is now considered to be one of the most haunted locations in WV with visitors reporting all manner of unexplained activity including horrific screams, shadow figures, and slamming doors.

11. Sweet Springs Sanitarium, Sweet Springs

The Haunted Sweet Springs Sanitarium, West Virginia

Established in 1792 by Revolutionary War Veteran, William Lewis, the Sweet Springs Sanitarium was a mineral spring resort, where people from all over the

People would visit from all over West Virginia as they’d spend their summer months relaxing, and socializing. In the 1830s the current brick hotel was built, and business continued to boom up until the Civil War broke out.

During its heyday, the resort would welcome some of history’s most well-known, such as George Washington, Jerome Bonaparte, and General Robert E. Lee.

After the Civil War people continued to visit the resort, though numbers dwindled, with vacationers preferring to visit resorts closer to the railways. By 1930 financial trouble hit, and the resort had to close.

Between 1942-1945, the Sweet Springs Resort would operate as a sanitarium for tuberculosis patients, before turning into the Andrew S. Rowan retirement home in 1945.

Haunted by some of the thousands of people who died here during its life as a sanitarium and a retirement home, the resort has featured on numerous paranormal TV shows recently, including series 1 of Destination Fear, and Paranormal Lockdown.

The Mountain State boasts many paranormal anomalies, from horrific prisons and asylums to haunted hotels and amusement parks. Some of the spine-tingling history is not for the faint of heart. Forbes even added West Virginia to their list of the most haunted states in America, which is scary good news for those who enjoy a good haunted tour or adventure.

Any one of these places will leave you sleeping with the lights on at night. For a real fright this fall, head to some of the spooky places below.

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum

Located in Weston, the  Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum  was a sanctuary for the mentally-ill up until 1994. This National Historic Landmark was once an important military post in the Civil War. It was originally built to hold about 250 patients, but during its peak it held 2,400 patients in poor conditions. Ghost experts have flocked here to experience the paranormal for themselves. They’ve heard blood-curdling screams and seen mysterious shadowy figures. Many say the souls of the insane have never left the halls they once called home. This attraction was dubbed by The Travel and USA Today for its historic hauntings and West Virginia’s obsession for fun Halloween festivities. Those brave enough can even choose to spend the night in the asylum .

The Wells Inn

Interested in staying the night at a haunted hotel?  The Wells Inn  is sure to give you a fright. The grandson of the founder of Sistersville, Ephraim Wells, built the hotel to cater to oil barons and upper class travelers in the late 1800’s. Many say that Mr. Wells never left his beloved hotel. A ghost walks the halls turning on lights, slamming doors and moving objects. The sound of writing can be heard from Mr. Wells old office.

Lake Shawnee Amusement Park

This abandoned amusement park will send a chill down your spine. When it opened in the 1920s, no one knew about its bloody past. The site housed a terrible skirmish between Mitchell Clay and the local Shawnee Indian tribe, after three of Clay’s children were brutally murdered by the tribe. Clay sought revenge and killed several of the Native Americans. After an entrepreneur stumbled upon the land and turned it into  Lake Shawnee Amusement Park , things began to go wrong. A young girl died on the swings and a little boy is said to have drowned in the pond. Native American chants can be heard on some nights throughout the park. This attraction in  Mercer County  is open for haunted tours so you can explore the supernatural yourself.

A Haunting in Harpers Ferry

Harpers Ferry , one of the oldest towns in the state, is famous for its war time history. So it’s no surprise this town has Civil War soldiers performing marching drills and the ghost of John Brown walking the streets at night. Another ghost story is that of “Screaming Jenny,” a woman who caught fire and ran into an oncoming train. On the anniversary of her death, folks say they can see a ball of fire on the tracks that disappears when a train strikes her.  Ghost Tours of Harpers Ferry  will take you on an evening stroll through the town’s spookiest sites.

Flatwoods Monster

On one fall night in 1952, a UFO fell from the sky and landed here in West Virginia. What happened next has been highly contradicted. A group of local children and neighbors went to where the UFO fell and found a mysterious being, with shiny eyes and a round red face, cloaked in a green drape-like material. The later-dubbed Flatwoods Monster hissed at the group and disappeared. The witnesses also reported a pungent smell that made them nauseous. The following day when investigators inspected the site, they found skid marks and an odd, gummy deposit, but no strange smell. Regardless of what had happened, today you can travel  Braxton County  in search of the Flatwoods Monster chairs that have been installed.

West Virginia Penitentiary

Widely regarded as one of the most haunted prisons in the United States, the  West Virginia Penitentiary  has seen several riots, fires and over 100 executions. The Gothic-style prison was built in 1876 from locally quarried hand-cut sandstone. The prisons’ hauntings date back to the 1930s when guards saw inmates roaming freely. However, when they sounded the alarms and searched the area, no one was ever found. If you have the courage to take a tour, you’ll be sure to see the “Shadow Man,” a dark silhouette that haunts the grounds. You might even hear whispering or arguing coming from the basement. Come see for yourself why The Travel dubbed this as one of 10 historic haunts to see this Halloween.

Mystery Hole

Hidden in the hills of West Virginia lies a place that defies gravity. No one can say for certain what goes on at  Mystery Hole . Folks have said that balls roll uphill. Others say that simply being there has cured their ailments. One thing’s certain – you have to experience this oddity for yourself.

Mysteries in Morgantown

Home of  West Virginia University , Morgantown is known for more than their school spirit. Paranormal spirits haunt the hallowed grounds of this university. Long before the school existed, Elizabeth Moore was the principal of the Woodburn Female Seminary, a women’s education academy. After she passed, many still felt her presence on campus. Today, students have seen Ms. Moore hovering over the building that WVU named for her, E. Moore Hall. Just across the way at the Mountainlair, people have reported seeing   a little girl in a yellow dress dancing through the student union .  Sally, this spirit died of typhoid fever and was originally buried where Stewart Hall now stands. The bodies were moved to a different cemetery but some believe Sally never left.

North Bend Rail Trail

During the day, the  North Bend Rail Trail  in Parkersburg is a great place to hike, bike and horseback ride, but once night falls you might want to bring a lantern and a friend if you’re going exploring. Part of the trail around Tunnel No. 19 is known to be haunted by the spirit of a young woman. It’s not clear who she is, but many have seen a young woman in a flowing white dress in the area. Others have even found bones in an abandoned house near the tunnel. Be advised – if you venture into the tunnel, bring a flashlight. It’s over 1,300 feet long and even on the sunniest of days, you’ll be swallowed up in the darkness of Tunnel No. 19.

The Greenbrier Ghost

Arguably the most famous entity in the state is that of Zona Heaster Shue. Zona was a young, married and pregnant woman when she was found dead one January night in 1897 in  Greenbrier County . The local newspaper said she had died in childbirth and was laid to rest a few days later. But Zona could not rest because she hadn’t died of natural causes. According to a local legend, Zona’s spirit visited her mother and told her how her abusive husband had murdered her. Zona’s mother visited the town’s prosecutor and demanded that her daughter’s body be exhumed. The autopsy revealed that Zona’s neck had been broken and her husband was ultimately found guilty. Today, a plaque commemorates the famous ghost that helped convict a murderer.

For even more spooky places in West Virginia, please check out the Haunted WV page of Theresa’s Haunted History of the Tri-State! Over 200 carefully researched haunted hot spots and growing!


When going to High School in Athens WV in the 60’s, we were told by friend who resided in True WV,about the huge mansion like property across from the graveyard.

There were many different reports made by different people about the goings on in that house. Also reports mad back then to families who bought the house and sold soon after residing in the house for a short time.

I have attempted to research the property as of the year 2000 and can not find anything abut this property. Please get back to me if you have discovered anything in reference to this property. I would very much appreciate it.

Thank you so very much.

Pricing is for an eighteen hour investigation from 6 pm to 12 pm. Groups wishing to rent the sanitarium resort for paranormal investigation are required to make reservations in advance online. Full payment is due at the time of booking. Sweet Springs Sanitarium does not book multiple paranormal investigation teams at the same time.

Haunted Majestic is located at Majestic Landing just north of Robert Newlon Airport at the end of Kyle Lane, off WV Route 2 five miles north of Huntington, WV. From Interstate 64, take Exit 18 and follow WV Route 193 3 1/2 miles to the intersection of WV Route 2. Turn left onto WV Route 2 and go one block to Kyle Lane. Turn right onto Kyle Lane and follow 1/4 mile across the railroad tracks to Robert Newlon Airport. Parking is available in the field to the right as you enter the airport property.

Parking for the Haunted Majestic haunted attraction is $5 per car and is located at the east end of Robert Newlon Airport. After entering the airport property a parking attendant will direct cars to a large field through the gate to the right where sufficient parking will be available. From the parking field, the main gate of Majestic Landing is a mere 100 foot walk. Look for the large fence, gates, flashing emergency lights, and traffic signal at the entrance.

Credit cards are not accepted for parking

Our volunteers choose a charity that their labors will benefit and Haunted Majestic will donate 10 cents for each ticket sold to the charity each volunteer chooses. It doesn’t sound like much, but if you and 9 friends volunteer for a night and 500 people tour Haunted Majestic that night then your chosen charity would receive 10 cents X 10 volunteers X 500 tickets which would total $500. The more you volunteer and the more friends you get to volunteer with you then the more your chosen charity can receive. Yes, you can be your own chosen charity if you would rather receive the money into your own pocket, but remember, if you make more than $600 during the course of the event we have to report your noble service to the IRS via a Form 1099!

We ask that volunteers commit to at least three evenings of volunteering so that the haunt has continuity and we aren’t constantly training and orienting new volunteers. Are you part of a church youth group or charitable organization? Haunted Majestic would be a great way to earn some funds for your group while having a hauntingly good time! 

We need actors, guides, scene builders, audio and lighting technicians, cleanup personnel, makeup artists, ticket managers, photographers, videographers, and more. If you feel like you have a talent we can use please  shoot us an email .

Vendor Silhouette

Vendor spaces are limited to a 10-foot by 10-foot area and electrical hookup is provided on a first booked, first served basis. The cost to vend is $25 per night and vending locations are assigned by the Haunted Majestic staff based on availability of space in and around the pavilion area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the haunted majestic attraction suitable for all ages.

While Haunted Majestic promotes itself as a “family-themed haunted attraction” we leave that decision to the parent or guardian. Our haunt is not designed to be overly gory or extremely scary as our focus is more on providing families with a hauntingly fun atmosphere.

Is the Haunted Majestic event A.D.A. compliant?

Unfortunately, no.  The haunt is located on two floating barges moored on the Ohio River.  The haunt takes participants on a walk through two levels of these barges and several staircases must be traversed up and down during the tour.  We will do all we can to accommodate physically challenged individuals and will assist as much as possible to ensure every customer has a scary encounter but the tour is not accessible by wheelchair or recommended for those with severe disabilities.

How does the tour work?

Haunted Majestic is a self-toured haunt with visitors being sent through the haunt in groups of 12 or smaller. The trail to, through and from the haunt is clearly marked and there are trail guides positioned along the course to keep groups on course and grouped together. Stay with your group or face being left behind! Each group is provided with a pre-tour instruction session prior to entering the haunt and tours are sent every five minutes from the ticketing area.

Is someone going to touch me during the tour?

No.  The Haunted Majestic attraction is filled with ghosts, goblins, zombies and other monsters which will scare you using loud noises, lighting and other techniques and special effects, but none of the actors will touch you and you are asked not to touch them during the tour.

How long does the tour last?

The self-guided tour will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete and visitors will return to the point where the haunt started at the conclusion of their tour.

Is Haunted Majestic merchandise available for sale?

Yes. Haunted Majestic has many items in its museum and gift shop located on the first deck of the historic sternwheeler Blennerhassett. Items include t-shirts, hats, mugs, bracelets, pens, decals, and other items.

What forms of payment are accepted?

Haunted Majestic accepts cash, VISA, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover at the ticket booth and gift shop.

Can visitors take photos or video during the tour?

Filming or photographing is permitted outside the Haunted Majestic but once you enter the tour we ask that you turn off your phones and cameras.

What happens if it rains?

Much of the Haunted Majestic tour is indoors so a little rain won’t stop the show.  However, if heavy rain or storms are present the event may be delayed or close on a case by case basis for the safety of our visitors who must wait outside for their turn to tour the attraction.  Anytime the haunt would have to close due to weather your unused ticket will be honored on any other night we are open for scares.

Are there concessions available on site?

Yes.  Haunted Majestic does have several concession options for visitors including sandwiches, side items and drinks, as well as a picnic area on site for eating and relaxing.

Are there restrooms on site?

Yes.  There are several portable restrooms available for guests near the Haunted Majestic ticket booth and concession area.

Does my ticket get me access to special guests?

Yes.  Haunted Majestic will have special guests on site every night!  TV celebrities, horror writers, vehicles used in movies and TV, and more.  Your admission ticket includes photo opportunities and meet/greet with all of our special guests.  Free autographs may be limited to purchased memorabilia by some special guests but all special guests, including their vehicles, will be available for free photo opportunities to anyone with a General Admission, Fast Pass or Season Pass. If you want to see a special guest who is appearing on a night other than the night you have purchased a ticket for, you will need to purchase another ticket for that night or upgrade to a Season Pass.

Will Haunted Majestic’s special guests have merchandise for sale?

Yes.  Most guests will have a merchandise table where you can purchase t-shirts, photos, books, and other items they bring.

Is there a cost for parking?

Yes.  The staff at the adjacent Robert Newlon Airport will provide and manage parking for the Haunted Majestic events.  The cost is $5 per car.

Can I upgrade to a Season Pass after going through the haunt?

Yes. If you visit Haunted Majestic and decide later you want to upgrade to a Season Pass all you need to do is show proof of your visit with a ticket stub and the ticket amount will be deducted from the Season Pass price.

Does the haunt use fog machines or strobe lights?

Yes. Haunted Majestic does use fog machines, flashing lights, strobe lights, loud noises such as sirens and air horns, and bursts of compressed air at various places throughout the haunt. If you believe any of these may cause an adverse reaction you should consider not going on the tour.

Is Haunted Majestic available for private rentals?

Yes. The barges and grounds are available for private rentals for such events as private paranormal investigations, weddings, birthdays, and other similar events. A basic rental guideline can be found by clicking here: “ Haunted Majestic Rental Guidelines. “
