Share

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!

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.Read more…

The Millvale Apparition at St. Nicholas Church

24 Maryland Ave, Millvale, PA 15209, United States

Share

The ghost story relating to St. Nicholas Croatian Roman Catholic Church in Millvale may be nearly 75 years old, but remains well known today. The timeless murals in the haunted church themselves help to perpetuate the story. In 1937, the pastor of the church, Father Albert Zager, hired a well known artist to paint these murals. The artist was Maxo Vanka, who finished his task despite a persistent ghostly presence that manifested itself on a regular basis.Read more…

13 Bends

Tourman St, Coulter, PA 15028, United States

Share

One of the most popular but confusing “haunted place” urban legends is the story of “13 Bends”. The main story involves Coulterville Cemetery near Elizabeth, McKeesport and Boston. An old orphanage from the 1800s that stood on this site burned down years ago, and you can still supposedly hear footsteps and children, and perhaps see some apparitions in the rear view mirror of your car! Some encounter a great sense of sadness as they drive by. Childlike handprints can then be seen all over the vehicle.Read more…

Green Man’s Tunnel – South Park

3701 Piney Fork Rd, South Park Township, PA 15129

Share

This “out-of-the-way” tunnel, near Piney Fork and Gill Hall Roads, is allegedly the home of the “Green Man”, a disfigured recluse that is not welcoming of visitors. The Green Man was the apparent victim of some kind of electrical or nuclear accident, depending on the version of the story. This legend actually has its roots in Beaver County, where “Charlie No Face” roamed the roads at night many decades ago. This is a true story, but it is unclear how the folklore traveled from Beaver County to South Park. Also see the listing for “Corvette Tunnel”, which is nearby.Read more…

Glowing Tombstone of Hoffman Cemetery

Hoffman Cemetery, Smithton, PA 15479, United States

Share

From a certain viewpoint along Stahl Road, looking across the valley at the cemetery, one tombstone in particular appears to glow against the night sky. This has been known for decades, but in recent years cornstalks have blocked the view during the summer / fall. I have not been there in quite some time so I do not know the current status. A simple study years ago concluded that the strange light is indeed coming from a certain tombstone, but to this day it is not known why.Read more…
