One of the Most Haunted Cities in America: Pittsburgh, PA
Our city's character was forged in vicious labor strife and in iron furnaces so hot that men and women sometimes forgot their fear of hell. Any town that has experienced the turbulence ours has seen simply can't escape its ghosts, and Pittsburgh is teeming with them. They roam the abandoned halls of the Old Allegheny County Jail, a Romanesque dungeon dating back to 1886...they break the silence and stillness inside the Carnegie Library and Music Hall of Homestead...and they walk the streets and alleys that have stood here for generations. The most haunted house in all of America? Some say that it once stood right here in Pittsburgh.
Many experts believe that running water fuels and conducts paranormal activity, so perhaps it’s no surprise that a city built on the confluence of three mighty rivers would generate so many stories of ghosts, extraterrestrial visits, psychic energies, and strange creatures. Pittsburgh’s Point Park region was a sacred sight for Native American tribal rituals, and some believe that our convergence of running waters (including the fourth underground river) is a sacred portal with deep significance to the Mayan prophecies for 2012.
Could Pittsburgh’s “harmonic resonance” in the Universe hold the key to understanding the high volume of reported UFO sightings and visitations in Western Pennsylvania? Does the same hilly topography, dense forests, and rocky terrain that once gave shelter to Native American ancestors also hide mysterious gorilla-like creatures, freakish felines, and other cryptozoological curiosities?
Pittsburgh, Pa. One of the most haunted cities in America and the perfect location for the continued exploration, discussion, and investigation of ghosts, psychic energy, extraterrestrial life, cryptozoology, and all manner of paranormal activity.
