An anonymous user created the map, which lists well-known places with paranormal activity like the Amityville Horror house at 112 Ocean Avenue in New York and Alcatraz in San Diego, California. But there are also a few places on the map with bone-chilling stories and ghost sightings that you probably haven't heard of.
If you look at Louisiana, you'll see the LaLaurie House marked in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The Crescent City is widely believed to be one of the most haunted places in the nation, and the LaLaurie House may be the most haunted house in New Orleans.
For those of you who don't know the sordid tale (and haven't seen American Horror Story), Daphne LaLaurie was a cruel, sadistic woman who tortured and murdered slaves in her New Orleans mansion. The atrocities that occurred there were so awful that locals believe the mansion itself is cursed because of it. Pretty much every ghost tour will walk you by, making it a popular tourist attraction, from a distance.
Some places on the map you might only know if you're a local. A map dot in Decatur, Ill. simply points to 145 N. Main St., the address of the old Lincoln Theatre. The hauntings go beyond the theatre itself, though. Before the Lincoln Theatre was built, 145 N. Main housed the Decatur Arcade, a hotel that burned down in 1915, killing many guests. The ghosts of the fire victims are said to haunt the location still.
