Is the White House a haunted house? Discover the paranormal legends behind historical landmarks around the world…
Now with new material for this updated edition, The World's Most Haunted Places reveals that ghostly legends abound wherever history has made its mark. Battlefields, prisons, asylums, national monuments-all of them have stories to tell. Their ghosts still lurk, demanding that we remember the past.
President Lincoln has been walking the halls of the White House in Washington, DC, for more than a century. The Queen Mary may just be the most storied and haunted ship on the planet. The catacombs of Paris contain the skeletal remains of six million bodies...and many of their ghosts. And the Tower of London is haunted by noblemen and commoners-some still searching for the heads they lost more than five hundred years ago.
Take a world tour of history, the supernatural, and the macabre. You will explore libraries, museums, restaurants, inns, and landmarks from North America, South America, Europe, and Australia. But be careful: The World's Most Haunted Places may make you a believer!
