Where are the best "Haunted Tours?"

by ADHDean on September 20, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

A very popular (and reputed to be truly haunted) location in Birmingham is Sloss Furnace. An old foundry, it was the site of many tragic deaths. One of the many ghosts believed to roam the place is a notorious foreman who, reputed to be an angry and violent man, met an untimely and gruesome death in a vat of molten iron at the hands, it is rumored, of those whom he had terrorized over the years. He is said to still traverse the catwalks over the furnaces.

What are your favorite locations for a good spooky tour, and what are the stories behind them?
