1201 Bruce Hall, University of Pittsburgh

3990 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA, United States

Website

On the top floor of the Bruce Residence Hall is located Room 1201, a banquet hall that is used for catered special events. There have been many accounts over the years of paranormal activity in the room: cold spots, objects moving, and the feelings of spiritual presences while otherwise alone. The ghosts are believed to be those of two women who committed suicide many years ago in the room. Though relatively harmless, these occurrences have left several workers and visitors to 1201 unnerved and happy to be out of this haunted house!

McKees Rocks Indian Burial Ground

168 Hamilton St, McKees Rocks, PA 15136, United States

This site has been of interest for over 100 years and has received special attention from many Native American groups as well as archeologists.

Covert’s Crossing

611 Covert Rd, New Castle, PA 16102, United States

Covert’s Crossing was a single-lane old bridge in New Castle, PA. The bridge was built in 1887, and was very narrow. It has become the subject of many legends in the area, most of which involve headless spirits and midnight tragedies. For example, one story asserts that a newlywed couple in a horse drawn carriage was struck head on by a car on the bridge on their wedding night. The groom was never found, and the bride was decapitated. Variations of this story substitute the couple for a young girl on her prom night, and yet another mentions a railroad worker from the nearby tracks. In all the stories, the poor souls basically met the same end. Legend has it that these spirits would appear at midnight to whoever was brave enough to stop on the bridge.– Read More…
