Haunted Houses & Places in Pittsburgh

Attractions & Ghost Stories in PA!

Western Pennsylvania is the home to dozens of haunted places: houses, cemeteries, even old tunnels and wooded areas. There is no shortage of locations for ghost hunters to visit. Many of these locations have been the subject of urban legends and ghost stories for decades, the stories passing from generation to generation. This interest in the paranormal is also reflected in the numerous “haunted houses” that pop up every Halloween season – haunted attractions that span from intense walk-through houses to benign haunted hayrides and trails for kids. The annual haunted landscape is fairly constant with some attractions having been around for over 30 years, but others come and go and new ones take their place.

This site has recently been redesigned to easily find both haunted places and haunted houses (attractions) in the area. On the map, haunted places are indicated with a green house; haunted attractions with a red one. Attractions that are geared fully or partially for kids are indicated in orange. Closed haunted houses are indicated in gray with an “X” through them. All of these categories can be filtered to make it easier to find what you are looking for.

Please be aware that some of the haunted houses / attractions may be too intense for some individuals. Please know what you are getting yourself into before you go. The trend has been “bigger and better” but that sometimes means more graphic and disturbing. Not all attractions are the same. Also, please do not trespass if you decide to check out a haunted place. Some of them are accessible, but some are not and have been included here only because they are great reading.
