FROM THE EDITOR
___________

We have received several emails from readers who had the same complaint
about the upcoming events section. It seems that they feel it is
becoming to long and repetitive. They feel that listing the details of
each event week after week was not necessary and made it hard to see any
new entries. I totally agree with them and think that we have solved the
problem.
Beginning with this issue we are only running a short piece about each
event. If you would like more detailed information about an upcoming
event you can visit Haunted-Places.com website. The URL for the events
page is: http://www.haunted-places.com/tours.htm

OK, how many of you have seen The Mothman Prophecies? What did you
think? Did it live up to the pre release advertising? Send your comments

From Pat Fitzhugh, Author/Researcher
The Bell Witch Web Site: "http://www.bellwitch.org"

Please remove the listing for my radio show (The Bell Witch and Other
Paranormal Mysteries). The show has a great listenership but is still a
cost burden, so I've decided to discontinue it. Monday, January 28th was
the last segment.
Editor’s note: This was a really great program. We’ll miss it!

From: Kristin at: mcgra-@earthlink.net"

Good Evening to you! I am enjoying my first visit to your website
tremendously! I am hoping to be added to your mailing list. Possibly for
the first time I can feel comfortable in sharing experiences without
that look of doubt I usually receive when I open myself up to others.
Having been cordially visited on numerous occasions by the other side
since my early teens, I have held a passion within to learn about
paranormal investigations and life beyond.
Now, as I work in a Trauma Hospital and deal with death almost daily I
feel the need to take my passion off of the back burner and move
forward. I look forward to hearing from you.

From Zafar at: zafarh-@hotmail.com

Thank you for mailing 'The Haunted-Places Report', it is interesting
but less informative, it seems that people in west have very little
knowledge about supernatural or paranormal things & events.
I am from Pakistan, here the people have enough knowledge to
recognize the paranormal places or events & to help the haunted
person & to clean the haunted places. If you grant me permission,
I will discuss the Facts & Theories about paranormal things & events.

Editor’s response: I tend to agree with Zafar. Those of us in the west
do not seem to have the knowledge and understanding of those in the
east. I’ve invited Zafar to future share his thoughts and opinions.
We’ll post them in future issues.

FEATURED ARTICLE

The Morgue
Written by: Thomas D’Agostino
Email: ramt-@aol.com

Southern Rhode Island hosts some of the most inconceivable tales and
legends one’s ear could ever lay claim to. Vampires, banshees, ghostly
coffins, and Indian spirits are among the many acknowledged narratives
of folklore and history that enrich the lower half of this minute state.

This next assemblage of strange encounters took place over the period
of several years and has many characters in it. I will now share my hair
raising experiences with you concerning a building of vivacious
antiquity all of the involved aptly called “The Morgue
The edifice is located in Coventry, Rhode Island. This decrepit three
story structure was once Gorton’s Funeral Home until shortly after the
20th century when they moved to a more modern facility up the street
from the decaying temporary dwelling of the departed.
Abandoned and dilapidated for almost a half century, this building
stood ominously towering over the street as the brick sidewalk was it’s
only boundary between it and the pavement it overshadowed. It came into
our hands when we were searching for a place to rehearse with our band.
A group of us were able to rent the cellar for a reasonable fee and
began to make it rehearsal ready. The only other occupant became an
antique book store shortly after we had moved in. Soon, though, the
proprietor was off to Florida for better things and we were the sole
inhabitants of the whole abode.
The atmosphere of the place was eerie even in the rays of daylight. We
would enter through the large doors the deceased were transported
through on their way to the embalming table which sat right in the
middle of our room!! The main floor housed an old office quite unkempt
with the passage of time. There was a bathroom with shelves full of
embalming fluids and other apothecaries of the last century. The wide
stairs allowed for the coffins to be carried by the pall bearers on
their way to the spacious viewing rooms of the second and third floors.
Just having to climb them gave one a shiver of the brief mortality were
suffer and how we would too one day traverse these stairs in a different
shroud. The remains of the elevator shaft, crumbled and in dangerous
repair sat impetuously at the southern wall. The elevator was added in
the 1920’s for ease of operation but now posed a threat to anyone who
would dare venture within these walls after dark without the aid of a
light.
Laced across the massive rooms were a few couches and artifacts of the
dead. Clothing trunks and wheelchairs from the 19th century lay askew
among the rubble and rodents. canes and other aids of the bygone era
strewn among the dust which permeated one’s lungs when they chose to jar
the long resting fine soil. No one would touch or take any of these
curios for the inherent fear of what they might posses within their
components. Yes, we were very superstitious and a little afraid.
Any hour was unnerving to walk the looming corridors but mostly at
night when the small lamps cast but a faint, uncanny glow upon the
massive walls and ceilings where shadows of nightshades could almost be
seen dancing in the feeble luminescence of the substandard lamps. Some
rooms had no electricity at all making them even more of a mysterious
cryptogram to behold after the safety of day had waned away.
One night as I entered the cryptic building through the usual double
doors, I noticed a strange man coming towards me. He strolled right past
me as I stood on the small staircase descending into the cellar and
walked right through the old furnace seven feet in front of me!
Another incident involved two of my friends and myself one night late
when rehearsal had expired and we were capping up the night. A figure of
a man dressed in baggy clothing definitely not from this century
appeared in the middle of the room and walked right through the
partition we had erected to seal our practice space.
Another night we were constantly being interrupted by crashing and
banging coming from a little room just outside of our practice space.
Every investigation proved futile yet the discord continued through the
night despite us locking the chamber each time we left it.
One night I left the Morgue from the upper door where a 2 by 4
staircase had been erected. As I turned around to secure the door, the
configuration of a small man wearing glasses and a gloomy gray suit
appeared out of the darkness and shoved the door shut from the other
side. The specter had a solid stone face with no solace as he gazed at
me from the other side of the windowpane for about six seconds before
fading into thin air before my eyes. I would later explore the old
office only to discover that the face I saw several nights before, was
the same countenance gracing the antiquated portrait on one of the
walls. It was one of the original undertakers of the funeral home.
One of our taping sessions was interrupted by the boom of the double
doors leading to our rehearsal space,/former embalming room,/recording
studio. When we replayed the tape to see if the recorder had picked up
the possible nuisance, we heard to our astonishment, not only the doors
rushing open but the wailing and pleading of a female’s voice as well.
Yet, as usual, the doors were locked.
Frightful shrieks and unearthly moans would saturate the confines of
the sepulture at all hours as if history was replaying the mourning of
passed loved ones. One night three of us crept up to the third floor to
see who was screaming tumultuously. It was such a clamor that we heard
it from the basement. When we reached the large open room, we flicked on
the light. The only concrete elements present in the massive expanse to
greet us were an old couch, a clothing trunk (filled with clothing of
the dead who would have their garments picked out for burial) and a few
boards. The screaming stopped the very moment the light illuminated the
chamber. There was only one way out and that was the way we came. The
elevator shaft was open but yielded a forty foot drop to rocks, rubble,
and a piece of the mechanical gear that once helped it to function.
Many occasions saw the lights turn themselves on and off with no human
hand to guide them. At least fifteen people reported ghostly noises or
had seen something beyond explanation in the massive morgue.
Over a period of time, the original renters dwindled until my band was
all that remained. The name of the band, Blackbird 13, were now the sole
living entities within the building. We became easier targets for
occurrences. Tape players now would shut themselves off as would
amplifiers in the middle of songs. Microphones would vault from their
stands as if some veiled energy force was pulling them from the clips
and flinging them. One night I found my mandolin, which had been locked
in the recording booth for safety on the floor of the main room totally
and neatly dismantled. The neck had been skillfully removed from the
body it was glued to!
Soon the building was sold and renovations began on the decrepit
interior. Within time our “morgue” had a facelift with a new exterior as
well. No more sitting outside on a windy day dodging the coffin nails as
they were wrenched from their vocation of holding the siding onto the
swaying edifice which menaced above us. The building was once again
solid. The elevator shaft was removed. Even the carriage house behind
the building where the horse drawn hearses reposed was made into a
woodworking shop for the new owner. The only area that was left
untouched by time and progress was our studio. That too soon came to
pass.
As I closed the massive double doors for the last time in the fall of
1991, I felt a legacy had ended. An unforgettable seven years had passed
and all would remember forever, the most haunted building they had ever
rambled within.
As for the ghostly encounters, well, they still continue to this day
amidst the new walls and ceilings which gave new life to a dying funeral
home.

Do Ghosts Haunt Many of State's Venerable Hotels?

By Lillian Ross
Special to The Denver Post
Sunday, January 27, 2002
All copyrights acknowledged

If you believe in ghosts, this story will be no surprise. If you're a
non-believer, you may find yourself questioning your convictions. The
volumes of stories about Colorado's colorful settlers carry with them
reputed tales about resident ghosts in many of the state's historic
buildings and hotels - benign apparitions who usually do no harm, except
to startle or frighten today's guests. No manner of repainting or
renovation, it seems, will dispel the spirits who, somehow, want to
remain within the walls where they may have met their demise.
In Fairplay, the historic Hand Hotel, bordered by dirt streets and
filled with century-old furniture, is home, still, to Grandma Hand.
Grandma, it is said, likes her room just as she left it. Once, when a
guest tried to take a nap in his (Grandma's) room, he kept hearing a
woman's voice asking for her rocking chair. After searching other rooms,
he brought back a rocking chair and the voice was stilled.
The ghost of a dark mastiff has been seen repeatedly at the Hand Hotel.
One guest saw and felt the dog pull the bed covers off her. When she
tried to re-cover herself, the dog bared its teeth and disappeared. Five
years ago, a young boy was attacked by the mastiff as he and his father
were building a haunted house for Halloween in the hotel's basement.
Former hotel owner Pat Pocius confirmed dog bites on the boy's hand, as
did a doctor.
The Fairplay Hotel has a ghost named Julia, a prostitute who spent much
time there. Julia broke her own heart by refusing to marry her lover,
saying it would tarnish his reputation. She committed suicide and is
buried in the Fairplay cemetery, but returns to the hotel. She moves
bottles in the bar, and pots and pans in the kitchen through the night,
according to owner Anita Ely. You can hear her footsteps on the
creaking, wooden floors. As one guest prepared to shower, drawers and
doors in his room opened and closed by themselves, he said. Because of
the large numbers of sightings in Fairplay, Joanna Erickson, a Denver
teacher, conducts ghost tours in the town. They can be arranged through
the Hand Hotel.
Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs, a favorite retreat of Teddy
Roosevelt, takes its ghost stories in stride. It's not unusual for
guests to report having seen a little girl in the hallways, bouncing a
red ball, even though no children were staying in the hotel. Each report
of her sighting over the years describes similarities; the girl never
ages, her clothing never changes. Also, some guests hear running
footsteps of many people coming directly at them. When it seems the
thundering herd will run them over, the sounds disappear.
At Black Hawk's Gilpin Hotel (now the Gilpin Casino) in the 1980s, a
travel-weary guest checked in, retired to his room, tossing his duffel
bag on the floor, and stretched out on the bed, exhausted. Almost
immediately, he felt something thrown on his chest; it was his duffel
bag. He ran from the hotel, not even bothering to wait for a refund. It
seems the Gilpin Casino has inherited one or more of the old hotel's
ghosts. Manager Randy Reker is positive he saw a woman entering a
second-floor room. When he approached the room, no one was there. He's
sure it was Lucille Malone, who jumped from the building to her death a
century ago, when she learned her lover was run over by a wagon in front
of the hotel. One of the casino's restaurants bears her name.
At the Redstone Inn, in the utopian mining community near Carbondale, a
spirit inhabits the third floor. The staff has named him George and,
from reports, he's a busy guy. There are sounds of furniture moving,
doors opening, toilets flushing, and music coming from the attic. No
housekeeper will go to the inn's third floor alone.
Aspen's painstakingly restored Hotel Jerome has investigated many
sightings of a lost, soaking wet little boy running into room 310. As
guests tried to follow him, he vanished, leaving only footprints. Rumors
say a child drowned in the hotel's swimming pool 100 years ago; the
original pool was below room 310.
At Denver's venerable Brown Palace Hotel, sounds of happy children can
be heard in some hallways - though there are no children among the
guests. One of the Brown's night engineers tells of seeing the figure of
a man dressed in a train conductor's uniform slowly disappearing through
the wall into the adjacent United Airlines ticket office. Years back,
this office was used to sell train tickets.
In the old rough-and-ready mining town of Leadville, the Delaware Hotel
is a classic Victorian jewel - period antiques, crystal chandeliers,
brass fixtures, and ghosts. During one recent, warm summer, a painter,
restoring one of the hotel's hallways, felt a frigid blast of air pass
by him. He didn't wait for its return; he left his task unfinished.
Perhaps, he experienced the spirit of Mary Coffey, who was shot in the
back and paralyzed by her husband in their room at the hotel in 1889.
Now, the vision of a woman haunts the Delaware, appearing only from the
waist up.
The Hearthstone Inn, comprised of two Victorian mansions in Colorado
Springs, suffered through a severe lightning storm in 1999. In the days
after the storm, two separate guests requested relocation from the same
room on the third floor of the north house. The first guest gave no
reason. However, the second said she saw a picture of a woman with
piercing blue eyes hanging on the wall. The eyes were so piercing that
she removed the picture. The next day, a custodian discovered a mirror
face down on the floor, leaving to question whose reflection was in the
mirror.
Of course, what story about hotels with ghosts would be complete
without mentioning the gracious Stanley Hotel in Estes Park? It was
here, in room 217, where Stephen King wrote half of his classic
thriller, "The Shining." The author, anxious to write a story about
isolation, found the Stanley's classic stature a natural inspiration.
Though the motion picture depicted the lodge at Mount Hood in Oregon as
the hotel in the story, the made-for-TV version was produced at the
Stanley. Estes Park's stately hotel is not without ghost stories of its
own. About 20 years ago, the hotel's night manager heard a piano playing
in the grand music room at the far end of the lobby. Upon opening the
door, the manager could see the piano keys moving, though no one was
there. As he entered, the music stopped. The fourth floor of the Stanley
Hotel is active with spirits. The sounds of happy children emanating
near room 418 is a common occurrence.
Staying in hotels reputed to have ghosts may give you the rare
opportunity to experience a paranormal phenomenon. If so, consider
yourself privileged to be chosen by a past spirit.

BOOK REVIEW
___________

Haunted By Mary Queens of Scots
Written by: Neil Burns, author of Q few special Ghosts I Have Met.
Published by: JocknDoris Publishers
Website: www.jockndoris.co.uk
ISBN # 0 6535748 1 4
95 pages with B/W photos.

Although I found the author’s other book believable, I tend to doubt
the claims made that this book is a true story. Haunted By Mary, Queen
of Scots is well written and a great book to read but, this reviewer has
great reservations about it being true.
Neil Burns tells you his “true” story of being haunted by Mary, Queen
of Scots for over 20 years. The author claims to have interacted with
Mary at places that were important in her life. Such places as Rheims
Cathedral in France, Linlithgrow Palace in Scotland, and Wingfield Manor
in England.
None of these visits by the Queen are threatening or scary, just in my
opinion, a little hard to believe. Such is the account of Mary and her
ladies-in-waiting accompanying the author to an early Christmas party at
the home of a friend, after he rescued them from a freezing winter
storm. There they are introduced to all those attending the gathering,
given plates of food to eat and Mary’s sprained ankle is treated by a
physician who was at the gathering. Also are the author’s claims to have
revisited past times where he served as Mary’s “page” boy and engaged
with her in unusual sex acts. Also using his present day knowledge of
history in an unsuccessful attempt to sway her travels and decisions
which eventually lead to her capture and untimely death.
Still, I highly recommend this book for those who have an interest in
ghostly things and history. The book does show that the author truly
does have a love and respect for Mary, Queen of Scots.

over 180 topics ranging from absent healing to zombies and zeuglodonts.
I have a search facility on my site from which I gather information
about those topics people are searching on the most. At present ghosts,
hauntings and ghost hunting are coming up time and time again. As a
result I would like to cover this topic in more detail as I have done
with other topics of interest. I would be so grateful if someone could
point me in the right direction to get hold of a definitive or
comprehensive list of ghost hunting tools that I may post on my site. I
would also be very grateful if someone could point me in the right
direction to get hold of information regarding different types of
ghosts, hauntings and anything else that might be interesting in the
subject area. I also have a lot of problems finding good photos to use
that are not covered by copyright. If there is anyone out there who has
any ghost pictures they could let me use I would be very grateful. In
return I would give full credit to that person on the site and add any

TRUE EXPERIENCES
___________

From Brandy at: bbbl-@iowatelecom.net

Hi, first of all my real name is Brandy. I am married
w/ 3 little girls. We live in a small town in Iowa.
I really don't know where to start about our ghosts. So much has
happened. We have lived in this apartment for about 15 months. My 4 yr
old started talking about angels. One in particular, it was a little
girl named Jennifer. She also started talking about a blue monster that
was in the closet. She said it was mean & that the angel tried to
protect her. Shortly after I started seeing a male figure around our
apartment. I saw him in the hall, outside our windows, and in the girls'
room. He would always disappear right after I saw him, just vanish.
That's when I realized that it was a ghost, but I never said anything to
the girls because I didn't want them scared. Shortly after that my 4
year old started talking about a man that would wake her up to play in
the middle of the night. When she would say no he would hit, pinch &
bite her. I have seen the marks. She doesn't sleep in there much
anymore. I can't blame her. I have also been hit, had something try to
pull my pillow out from under my head when I was laying down. Everyone
was asleep except my husband, he was in the living room. He couldn't
have gotten out of the room w/out me seeing him.
The ghost has made things move, He has hit my 4 yr old with sticks. She
was hit once in the middle of her back by a plastic stick. She couldn't
have hit herself in that spot and there was no one else around that
could have done it. When I asked her about who did it she said that
there was no one there. That the stick just came up and hit her. He has
made pictures lift up & come off the walls without doing anything to the
nails like pulling them down. He made the 19" color TV fly off our
entertainment center and land on my 4 yr old who was sitting on the
floor about 2-3 feet from the entertainment center. He hides things; you
can look for something in one place and it's not there but, if you go
back it will be there. My 6 yr old has talked about a black thing that
would get in the crib with my baby. She would come into our room crying
about it. I would check and it would be gone. Last week the baby woke up
3 or 4 nights in a row at 2:21 am crying.
There is a little girl ghost. She is about 4. I have only seen her
twice in the last month. She seems to be very quiet and shy. I have
had a team of paranormal investigators here to investigate. They got
Orbs in their photos. Also their temperature gauge would drop about 15
degrees in the girls' closet and in one corner of the room. They said
that they could do an exorcism but they would have to come back. They
also said it would cost about $125 for "gas money".I couldn't afford
that.
I do feel the ghosts when they are near us. They are noisy. In our old
house my daughters, mostly the 4yr old, said their was a boy & girl w/ a
man that was in their room. The "kid" ghosts sometimes get mean. I never
got a good look at the male ghost . I always see him out of the corner
of my eye. This was part of the reason we moved, so they could sleep
better at night & now this! the girl ghost has been
active the last week or so, before this I had only seen her two times. I
have seen her about five times the last week. I have heard my name and
smelled cigarette smoke this past week, which is all new.
I have tried a blessed cross which hangs on my girls' closet door. We
had the apartment blessed but it just made things worse. I also burn
frankincense & myrrh incense. Let me know of anything that might help or
even if you just want to talk.

ART BELL ( Website: http://www.artbell.com/index.html ):

02/03/02 - Sun/Mon
Host: George Noory
Guest: Ian Lawton
What secrets does the Giza Plateau really hold? Are the pyramids simple
burial chambers, astronomical devices, or even power plants? Who built
them and the enigmatic Sphinx, and when? Does a Hall of Records await
discovery at Giza, and if so what does it contain? These questions have
animated both the public and a long line of dedicated researchers for
years. Ian Lawton will attempt to answer these questions and many more.
Lawton is a former management information systems consultant. He has
been researching ancient civilizations for more than a decade, and since
1997 has been a full-time writer-researcher.
Website: "http://www.ianlawton.com/"

02/04/02 - Mon/Tue
Guest: Dr. Gregory Little
Edgar Cayce, America's famous "Sleeping Prophet," gave 68 "psychic
readings" between 1925 to 1944 that provided information on America's
Mound Builders and ancient American history. Incredibly, nearly
everything Cayce related about the Mound Builders and the patterns of
migrations to ancient America is true. Dr. Greg Little has a master's
degree in psychology and doctorate in counseling from Memphis State
University. He is a Nationally Certified Psychologist (NAMP) is author
or coauthor of 8 books and 17 workbooks.
Website: "http://www.edgarcayce.org/am/"

02/05/02 - Tue/Wed
Guest: Riley Martin
Riley Martin says it all started when he was seven... they took little
Riley aboard an alien spacecraft to a huge mothership in the rings of
Saturn. Their computers download into Riley's brain... the history of
humanity, alien insights, and a whole lot more... plus beautiful symbols
by the thousands. Riley made friends with this little alien he calls...
Tan.

02/06/02 - Wed/Thu
Guest: Dr. Edward Tenner
If it can go wrong, it will--thus Murphy's Law. Science journalist
Edward Tenner looks more closely at this eternal verity, named after a
U.S. Air Force captain who, during a test of rocket-sled deceleration,
noticed that critical gauges had been improperly set and concluded, "If
there's more than one way to do a job and one of those ways will end in
disaster, then somebody will do it that way." Tenner concurs, and he
gives us myriad case studies of how technological fixes often create
bigger problems than the ones they were meant to solve in the first
place. Edward Tenner, former executive editor for physical science and
history at Princeton University Press, holds a visiting research
appointment in the Department of Geological and Geophysical Sciences at
Princeton University. He received the A.B. from Princeton and the Ph.D.
in history from the University of Chicago and has held visiting research
positions at Rutgers University and the Institute for Advanced Study

02/07/02 - Thu/Fri
Guest: Graham Hancock
Graham Hancock looks at the hard evidence of inexplicable underwater
ruins around the world. India's a big part of the story, but also Malta
and the Mediterranean, Japan and China, and the Grand Bahama Banks. 10
million square miles of the best lands on earth were submerged at the
end of the Ice Age, just before what we think of as when civilization
began.
