This would make a great topic for the Coffee House.

That said, I'll go ahead and respond. I'm VERY into the paranormal and seeking out supposedly haunted places. A few places in my area:

Taylortown Bell Tower - The bell tower is the only remaining part of an old church that once stood on this property in Taylortown, LA, a few miles south of Bossier City. Legend has it that a bride was stood up at her wedding, so later that night she returned to the church and hung herself in the belltower.

Old Penal Farm - Far west Shreveport, near Greenwood, LA. Remnants of a long-abandoned penal farm, said to be haunted.

Ellerbe School - A few miles south of Shreveport on Ellerbe Road. Legend has it that in the early 1900s, there were multiple student deaths at this school. To be honest, however, this school was built in the 60s and has never had a death within its walls. It was open only a few short years and then closed, because an anticipated population shift to that area never occurred and very few students actually attended the school. The school is standing today, but it's been vandalized to no end and is covered with "Satanic" graffiti from high school kids playing pranks.

Shreveport Municipal Auditorium - Downtown Shreveport. In recent months, 3 different paranormal investigations by two different paranormal societies have turned up EVP evidence and personal experiences that lead many to believe long-standing claims that this 1920s-era Art Deco palace is haunted. This building once rivaled only the Grand Ole Opry when it housed the Louisiana Hayride radio show, where many huge stars actually got their starts in the music industry, including Elvis Presley, George Jones, Hank Williams Sr, Johnny Horton, and countless others.

There are many, many more but these are the only ones I can name right off.

Well, I would have, but, I only have 19 posts, so, I can't post anything in the Coffee House.

Arkansas Tech University here in Russellville has a few supposedly haunted places...in Caraway Hall People have reported noises in the attic, footsteps on the stairs, and whispering in the hallways. The structure is built on top of an old Cherokee Indian Burial Site. The mounds were disturbed when groundwork was being done for the foundation. Also a girl committed suicide in a room. If you go by (its right in front of "Watta-Burger") the front of the building you can see that on the second floor right in the middle there

Memphis

Orpheum Theater - haunted by a little girl named Mary who was run over by a carriage on the street in front of the bldg in the late 19th century

Of course, one of the most famous sites in Memphis is Graceland, the home of legendary singer Elvis Presley. According to some reports, the ghost of Elvis still inhabits the house where he died and is buried. Of course, to believe this story, you have to believe that Elvis is actually dead and not working in a gas station or flipping burgers in a diner in Michigan!

An old man once operated the carousel at Libertyland. When a child
