These Super-Scary Stories Will Keep You up at Night

Country Living Logo By Country Living Staff of Country Living | Slide 1 of 12: Beware: These scary ghost stories are certainly not in the faint of heart. Even those who love creepy Halloween movies and dive right in to frightening books with witches or vampires will get chills from these tales. You might actually live near one of the haunted spots that inspired the tales, because the stories come from places all over the country. Or, after reading through this roundup, maybe you'll be inspired to visit one of the spooky ghost towns mentioned. If you live on the East Coast, you'll be especially interested in The Crying Lady in The Dakota, a famous apartment building located in New York City. John Lennon himself claims he saw the ghost roaming the halls of his residence. For those living in the southern part of the United States, there are a handful of stories that originated there. Huggin' Molly, a haunted figure in Abbeville, Alabama, reportedly chases—and embraces—people around the town. In Eureka Springs, Arkansas, there's a property called the Crescent Hotel that's allegedly haunted by a number of ghosts. (We likely won't be booking our stay there anytime soon!) And in St. Francisville, Louisiana, a ghost named Chloe apparently haunts Myrtles Plantation to this very day. That's just a preview of the terrifying tales listed here, but there's plenty more to read. Scroll through these scary stories (preferably during the day!) to really get in the spirit this Halloween.
