The Manor is located in New Castle, PA and the facility opened its doors on October 19, 1926. The first people to take residence at the Manor were a married couple, Perry and Mary Snyder along with their 2 children. Also, there were 12 staff members and the first 20 inmates from the old City home. One of the 20 was a young boy.
The Manor continued to operate for many years until the 1960’s when it slowly changed into a skilled nursing center. By the 1970’s the facility became severely overcrowded forcing the facility to build a new section which is now known as the North Wing. Unfortunately, due to financial constraints in 2004, Hill View Manor had to close it’s doors, at least for the living…..

Old Economy Village is a historic settlement founded in 1824 that is located in Ambridge, PA. and lies on the banks of the Ohio River.
The Harmony Society, which consisted of Separatist George Rapp, 800 farmers and craftsmen, founded and purchased the 3,000 acres of land. George Rapp emigrated to America from Germany seeking religious and economic freedom so this location was ideal for his farming and shipping Society products to markets on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.
After 20 years in the US, George and his adopted son Frederick developed a simple, pietistic lifestyle based upon the early Christian Church. Frederick was recognized as the driving force behind the Harmony Society’s business ventures once his step-farther passed.
Despite the Society’s economic success, time and events brought its decline. Upon Frederick’s death, Romelius Baker, Jonathan Lenz and Jacob Henrici became the trustees of the Society. Lenz wrote if the Messiah doesn’t return before the last member dies then the Society’s assets are to go to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Needless to say, in 1916 the 6 acres of Economy and buildings became the property of Pennsylvania and in 1919 became Old Economy Village, a state historic site.
Old Economy Village has a darker side of history. Concealed stairs lead to hidden vaults under the Old Economy Village where no one dares to venture. The sounds of footsteps are heard when no one else is around. People report seeing a ghostly vision of a Harmonist man strolling the gardens of the historical site. Enter into the paranormal curiosity with us as we seek out the energy of these old souls.

Rolling Hills Asylum, located in East Bethany, NY, was established in 1826 as was originally known as the Genessee County Poor Farm. The poor farm was an institution to provide housing to orphans, widowed women and their children, mentally ill, the disabled and minor criminals. This was an actual farm with the residents having the chores of tending the land and animals.
On the grounds, is a hidden cemetery. The county would bury those who had no family right on this location’s land.
In 1827, Genessee County Poor Farm opened its doors. Also, a notice was given to the Poor Farm that the Overseers of the Poor in several Genesee County towns will remove the paupers with their belongings (clothing, beds, bedding & other articles) from the County Poorhouse and will be sent to live at the Poor Farm. These consisted of lunatics, habitual drunkards, blind, sick, diseased, old, weak, disabled, lame and people with no means of income.
The Asylum witnessed over 1,700 documented deaths taking place on the property with hundreds more unrecorded. With so much despair taking place, it’s no wonder these spirits are constantly seeking attention and crying out behind the closed doors of Rolling Hills Asylum.
One of these spirit you may have the privilege of meeting is Roy. Roy is a gentle soul who suffered from extreme gigantism, a physical deformity. His height was well over 7-feet. If you want to get Roy’s attention, bring a book and read him a story. He loves to read, just visit his room to take a glimpse of his bookshelf, filled with books, stretching from one side of the room to the next. Guests of the Asylum see his enormous shadow lurking throughout the building.
Some other souls roaming the Asylum are children running through the dark, frigid tunnels. Venture into the morgue to lay on the embalming table, see if your breath is taken away. Next, call out for Nurse Emmie or visit “Shadow Hallway”. Doors opening by themselves to invite you in.
This is just a small portion of the paranormal experiences you will have with us. Are you ready to be committed to the Asylum…..

Let’s take a step back into history, it’s 1977, the Life-Saving Station is in a state of disrepair due to the Coast Guard moving to a larger facility.

Lord Baltimore Hotel owned by Harry Busick made its debut in 1928. It was an extraordinary ceremony that was broadcasted live from various radio stations and many guests in attendance to be amazed by the hotel’s brilliant decor and cutting-edge amenities. Unfortunately, Busick died shortly after and never got to know how immensely popular Lord Baltimore Hotel became.
The hotel had hosted many notable individuals including Babe Ruth and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The Busick brothers sold the hotel during the 1960’s when the business started to decline. Federated Hotels Inc. acquired the location and tried to do a massive renovation but the plan was impractical, ultimately closing the Hotel’s doors. Several attempts and ownerships to restore the business were made but failed. It was not until 2013 when the Hotel’s true rebirth occurred by the Rubell family.
The Rubell family relaunched the facility as an independent operation, investing millions for its upkeep and to ensure future generations would appreciate its brilliant history.
The building is 22 stories high and features a tower with a sky parlor copper roof.

Molly and her parents stayed on the 19th floor of the hotel right after the market crashed and like the others, their depression got the best of them and they too jumped from the rooftop to the ground. Some reports say they took their daughter, Molly with them but most claims state it was a murder-suicide. Many guests have claimed to see the little girl wearing a cream-colored dress, black shoes playing with a red ball around the hotel but particularly on the 19th floor. She loves to chase the hotel staff members as well as guests. Cries of a young girl are heard throughout the hotel, is this Molly lost and looking for her parents?
The elevators at the hotel will randomly take rides to the 19th floor without being called, doors open but no one is there or at least to be seen. Guests say they have been touched by cold hands while riding the elevators.
A couple has been spotted dancing in the ballroom, could this be Molly’s parents? Reports about a woman appearing at the foot of the bed while you’re sleeping.

This stone prison is in a U-shape with two wings. The main entrance features a heavy wooden door with strap hinges and a peephole. Some cells in the prison were larger than other cells. The larger cells housed multiple prisoners that were considered less dangerous. The extremely dangerous prisoners were locked up on the top floor where surviving wall-mounted shackles displayed.
The Prison operated from 1811 through 1965 and was the oldest operating prison in the United States. When it closed its doors in 1965, it was converted into a museum shortly afterwards.

There were other violent deaths, besides the executions, that took place at the prison. A guard was killed while preforming his duties. Several prisoners trying to escape were murdered.

The USS Constellation, docked in Baltimore, MD’s Inner Harbor, is a large warship that was commissioned in 1855. The 22-gun sloop was active for 100 years and served in several military conflicts.
The vessel also played a central role in ending the foreign slave trade by capturing slave ships off the coast of Africa. Total, the crew captured three slave ships and freed 705 Africans, including 199 women and children. The USS Constellation ended its tour off the coast of Africa to assist the Union in the Civil War. While not steam-powered, the USS Constellation still proved essential to the Union War efforts.
In addition to protecting American interests abroad, the ship assisted in the capture of the Confederate steam cruiser the CSS Sumter. The USS Constellation was eventually decommissioned in 1955 after 100 years of service. This vessel is the only surviving ship from the Civil War Era.
Gruesome deaths are said to have taken place on the USS Constellation. Neil Harvey, a crew-member who left his station and gun during battle, was seen as a traitor. Lieutenant Starrett punished him by sticking him with his sword. Harvey then was executed by being tired to the front of a cannon and blown to bits. The madness of the sea doesn’t stop there, 2 sailors were said to have stabbed a 11-year old boy, surgeon’s assistant, to death for no reason. The sailing hallucinations were so bad for one of the Sailors on the vessel that he hung himself.
Sightings of the Phantom Crew still wonder around the vessel and are seen in the windows peering out. Smell of gunpowder takes over in certain parts of the ship. People say they see an officer in an old navy uniform on forecastle deck. Is this Captain Thomas Truxtun, the 1st commander of the USS Constellation, manning his ship. Hitting of pots and pans are heard throughout the night.
