7 Haunted Places in New Hampshire

A former orphanage, a historic cemetery, a castle in ruins. New Hampshire is full of haunted places. Here are seven of the most frightening.

Chase Home – Portsmouth

Once an orphanage and now a place for at-risk youth, Chase Home also harbors the ghost of a former resident, or so the stories go. They say a girl once hanged herself in her room and now wanders the hall late at night. If anyone tries to approach the girl, she runs and disappears. Screams heard in the dead of night are also attributed to the restless spirit.

Pine Hill Cemetery – Hollis

A number of ghosts reportedly haunt the historic Pine Hell Cemetery. Strange activity includes unexplained tapping sounds, disembodied voices, and full-bodied apparitions. Known by locals as Blood Cemetery, Pine Hill is the final resting place to the Blood family. Legend has it the family was murdered, though different dates of death on the family’s headstones easily disprove the tale. Abel Blood, the family patriarch, has a headstone with a finger pointing up towards heaven. Some believe that as night falls over the cemetery, the finger changes position and points down towards hell.

Ghost Photo: Cemetery Shadow Person

Does this photo show a shadow person in Savannah’s Colonial Park Cemetery? The following comes from a reader who sent in the series of images.

“I am including some photos I took in Colonial Park Cemetery last October. Since I used to have a ghost team, I knew to take multiple pictures in different areas. I also looked to make sure there were no people in the camera’s view.¬†You can see a dark shadow person forming and what appears to be two spirits conversing in front of the headstone.”

The 267-year-old cemetery contains over 9,000 graves and is reportedly home to several spirits. Many ghost photos have emerged from Colonial Park throughout the years.

Reader Submission: The Man at the Door

“My father always argued that a near death experience was the result of chemical processes in the brain.

This all happened Wednesday night, 2/15/17. I returned home after my husband had taken me out for a fancy diner the day after Valentine’s Day because it would be less busy. After we got home, he went to bed and I stayed up watching YouTube.

At 11:30 p.m., I heard someone knocking on the front door and it sounded like they might be trying to break in. I started yelling, asking who it was. It was a police officer.

I told him to hold on. I ran up and told my husband to get up and come down…’It’s the police.’

My husband talked to the officer as I hid behind the door. The officer asked for me. I came out from behind. He then said something that knocked the wind out of me. Mom couldn’t reach me by phone. Come to her house. My father’s in the hospital.

A Walk in the Dark

“A strange thing happened one night when I was a young girl and my beau and I were walking home from church. The night was very dark. No stars were out, and of course there were no street lights. It was just one of those nights when everything is pitch dark, like a heavy fog over everything.

We were walking along, but not too fast as it was summer and I wouldn’t see Jim again ’til the next Saturday night.

One minute we were moving along all right and then Jim suddenly pulled me over saying, ‘Look out.’

At first, I thought he had seen a mud puddle, but he hurried me along and when I asked him what was the matter he said, “Nothing. I’ll tell you about it later.”
