The World’s Most Haunted Places, Revised Edition explores the history, folklore, and ghostly legends behind some of the world’s most fascinating points of interest. Now in its second edition, Belanger revisits some of the most famous haunts with new first-hand accounts, chapters, and locations.
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. They’re real. They’re out there. And Jeff Belanger has found them:
• 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 500 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!
