Ghost hunting in Michigan? You won’t have to look far. From historic restaurants to properties cursed by witches, the Great Lakes State is full of haunted hot spots. Here are seven places to search for spirits.
Seven Gables Road – Dansville
The ruins of a cursed home reportedly lie at the end of Seven Gables Road, just beyond the gate. The home once belonged to a witch that cursed the property. Soon after the witch’s death, a large family moved in, but their lives were cut tragically short. Driven mad by the curse, the father hanged his wife and children and then set the house ablaze before taking his own life. Now, people who investigate the property hear blood-curdling screams, spot faces in the trees, and smell the stench of burning flesh.
The Masonic Temple – Detroit
Architect George D. Mason reportedly haunts the enormous Masonic Temple. Legend has it Mason leaped to his death from the top of the building and now makes his presence known by slamming doors and switching off lights. Security guards in the historic building also report cold spots and eerie shadows. Some say they see Mason’s ghost climbing up the stairs, just as he did before plunging off the building.
