It's time for my monthly internet banishment. I leave you with a few spooky houses to keep you company. I hope to talk to you all again on friday.



The Spy House, Port Monmouth, NJ


The Spy House is one of the most haunted houses in the US. Built in 1648 as the Whitlock-Seabrook House. But, it has been moved from it's original location. Call the Spy House during the Revolution because from this location people were spying on the British. The British would come ashore to eat and drink. It is believed that there are about 30 ghosts. It's been a hotel, brothel and pirate hangout.

Ghostly Legends

http://whaleyhouse.org/ghostly.htm

Few houses in San Diego are as historically important as the Whaley House. In addition to being the Whaley Family home, it housed a granary, the County Court House, San Diego's first commercial theater, various businesses including Thomas Whaley's own general store, a ballroom, a billiard hall, school, and polling place. Significant events, such as the siezure of the court documents and records in 1871, and the suicide of Violet Whaley in 1885 profoundly affected Thomas and Anna Whaley. These events, as well as the hangings which occurred on the property before the house was constructed, have suffused the Whaley House with an air of mystery and added to its reputation as something more than just California State Historic Landmark #65.

Spooky! The White House at Halloween, 2010: Photo Gallery



The most famous address in America--1600 Pennsylvania Avenue--is also perhaps the country's most famous haunted house. Presidents, first ladies, White House staff members and guests have reported feeling ghostly presences, hearing unexplained noises and even running into actual apparitions--even on the way out of the bathtub, in one particularly famous case.

Out of all the historically haunted restaurants, saloons, cemeteries and other landmarks, the LaLaurie Mansion has remained the most haunted house in the city of New Orleans. On the corner of Royal Street and Governor Nichols, many walk on the opposite side of the street to avoid any contact with what might come out or be brought in. There have been many different owners and tales of what goes on in the mansion, but the original start of what brings about this haunting, begins with Madame Dauphine LaLaurie.
