Share

This isolated stretch of Irwin Road near North Park has been attracting attention for years. Irwin Road is an unlit, unpaved lane dotted with some scattered homes and ruins along it. It traverses a hollow parallel to Babcock Blvd. that is scary enough during the day, let alone at night. There are many legends and rumors associated with this place, but it is most known for rumors of satanic activity and all the horrors that typically go with that. It is named after the creeping “blue mist” that sometimes covers the road. It is one of the most searched for and well known sites in the Pittsburgh area, making this a classic “haunted” place.

Hoffman Cemetery, Smithton, PA 15479, United States

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…

Since 1906, the Mishler Theater in Altoona has hosted countless shows and performances and has become a landmark of the community. It must have been very difficult for its original owner, Isaac Mishler, to sell the theater in 1923 and watch it be converted into a movie house. The building was once again renovated in the 1960s and continues to operate. Most patrons may not realize its reputation as a haunted house. Ever attached to the Theater, the spirit of Mr. Mishler has been seen by performers, watching the show or strolling backstage.Read more…
