As per this legend, a couple was driving home from church with their toddler, contending about something. The downpour was falling in torrents, and they soon ended up needing to roll over an overflowed extension. As they began over, the water was deeper than they first considered, so they got adhered and chose to escape the auto to find help. The lady stayed behind, yet left the auto for explanations we can just conjecture.

While her back was turned to the car, she heard her toddler yelling out noisily. She came back to the vehicle, just to discover that her child had been diverted by the water. As per the same legend, provided that you head off to that same span you can at present hear the child yelling (the bridge's area is conveniently unknown).

Top 5 Most Spooky Things

5. Screaming Skull of Burton Agnes Hall

Screaming Skull
    By all accounts the mystery of the screaming skull is one which seems to belong to the British Isles alone. There are several accounts of skulls being removed from homes which result in a series of unexplained events such as poltergeist activity and eye-watering screams. One of the most famous screaming skulls is the one from Burton Agnes Hall in Driffield, East Yorkshire. The Hall was built during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I by Sir Henry Griffiths and his sisters. During the build one of Sir Henry’s sisters, Anne, was stabbed and killed by an unknown assailant. Before she passed on her other sisters promised that her head would be removed from her body and kept in the hall… a bizarre last request if ever there was one.

The sisters, putting the request down to near-death delirium never made good on their promise instead burying her body in a grave, intact. Shortly after the burial groaning could be heard throughout the hall. A little freaked out, the sisters visited the family vault and found their sister’s head had decayed to a skull and was remarkably detached from the body. The sisters took the skull and placed it in the hall where upon the groaning and moaning ceased. Sir Henry and the sisters eventually died and their descendants and new occupants of the hall attempted to remove the skull but each time the skull was removed the building would tremble and portraits would fall from the walls. Finally one of Sir Henry’s descendants agreed to keep the skull in the house but only if it was bricked up behind a wall, where it remains today.

4. The Chair of Death

Chair of Death
    Baleroy Mansion, Pennsylvania was built in 1911. Since it’s construction the building has accrued many artifacts of not only considerable monetary value but historical importance as well. The mansion houses items which once belonged to the Founding Father, Thomas Jefferson for instance. But alongside its palatial and opulent merits, Baleroy Mansion also has some paranormal prestige.

Baleroy Mansion, Pennsylvania was built in 1911. Since it’s construction the building has accrued many artifacts of not only considerable monetary value but historical importance as well. The mansion houses items which once belonged to the Founding Father, Thomas Jefferson for instance. But alongside its palatial and opulent merits, Baleroy Mansion also has some paranormal prestige.

But this isn’t the kind of chair you’d want to show off to your neighbors and it’s certainly not the kind of chair you’d want them to sit in either. Several paranormal investigators believe a female ghost haunts the chair and George’s nickname for the spirit found in this particular room would back that claim up: Spectral Amelia. It is said that whenever Amelia is present, a blue mist descends upon the room and that any one who is brave enough to sit in the chair when the spirit is in attendance will die suddenly. To this day four people have pooh-poohed the claim and brazenly sat in the chair. Those very same people perished. So the question is, would you sit in the Chair of Death?

3. The Haunted Wedding Dress

Haunted Wedding Dress
    As the daughter of Elias Baker, the rich iron magnate of Blair County in the 1800s, Anna Baker wanted for nothing. Her father splashed her with jewels and all that money could buy. But as a typical teenager, Anna wanted that which cannot be bought—true love. Something her father would have been happy for her to experience, as long as it was with a man of equal social standing. In true star-crossed lover fashion however, Anna fell for a handsome, low paid iron worker at her father’s blast furnace.

The loving father turned to archetypal angry dad in a heart beat—legend has it that his screams of rage could be heard from miles around. Elias simply didn’t want his little girl running off with someone who wasn’t good enough for her—in his eyes at least. And being the man of the house—and a very opulent house it was—Elias had the final say. But being as stubborn as her father Anna decided that if she was not to marry the man she most wanted to, she would not marry a man at all. She lived a spinster and died a spinster. And she never got to wear the flamboyant wedding dress she’s picked out with her mother. Not in this life at least.

Until recently that very wedding dress was on display at the Blair County Historical Society’s museum in the Baker Mansion, in Anna’s old bedroom no less, in front of a mirror. It was kept in a glass box, where it was said to sway from side to side. Some believe loose floorboards were to blame, others drafts but for those of a paranormal disposition, the answer is simple—Anna, the bride from beyond, dressed for her wedding day for eternity, was adoringly admiring herself in a mirror.

2. Annabelle the Possessed Doll

    Famous investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren took on the case of Annabelle the Haunted Doll in the early 1970s. The antique doll had been bought as a present by her a mother for her daughter, Donna in 1970. Donna was a student at the time, training to be a nurses. She lived in a small apartment with her friend, Angie. The Doll took pride of place on her bed. And then—you guessed it—weird stuff started happening. The Doll seemingly had the ability to move about on its own. Sometimes the girls would come home to find the doll in a different room from where they had left her; even finding her sat crossed legged on the couch with its arms folded.

Some time after this the girls would come home to find hand-written notes written in a crude child’s writing. The message read: ‘Help Us’. Who was writing the notes? And where was the old-looking parchment the messages were written on coming from? But the girls couldn’t analyze for too long because within a few days more strange occurrences happened, namely blood started to appear on the doll, from nowhere. The girls called for a séance, where they were acquainted with a spirit girl called Annabelle Higgins—a seven year girl who had been found murdered on the plot of land the apartment the girls lived in was built on.

Annabelle ‘moved’ into the doll so she could have some female company and once they heard Annabelle’s story the girls agreed that that spirit could stay in the doll and in the apartment… A bad decision—for one of their close friends at least, Lou. Lou had told the girls over and over again to ditch the doll and the dislike was clearly a two-way street. One evening when Lou was in Angie’s bedroom he was attacked by an unseen force. The attack left him with seven claw marks on his chest. Enter, paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

After looking into the case, Ed and Lorraine Warren concluded that the doll was not possessed by a spirit girl but by a malevolent spirit who wanted to eventually posses a human host. According to the Warrens, the ‘demonic spirit’ had manipulated and preyed on the girls’ emotional weaknesses, currying favor with them and lying in wait, until eventually it would have tried to possess them. The Warrens removed Annabelle from the apartment and to this day it remains in the Warren Occult Museum in Moodus, Connecticut. Annabelle still moves around on the odd occasion and, it is said, even growls at visitors.

1. The Haunted Mirror

Haunted Mirror
    Myrtles Plantation can be found on the outskirts of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Down the years this 200-year-old, 10-acre plantation has served as a family home but these days it’s run as a bed and breakfast—and is a hotspot for paranormal tourists. Every night at 3am a total of 15 ghosts come out to play. Four of these ghosts come from one tragic tale—that of the Woodruff family and a young slave named Chloe.

In 1817, Sara Mathilda inherited the plantation from her father. She moved in with her husband Clark Woodruff and their three children. Clark decided to bring one of his slave with him from his own home—Chloe. One evening, when Clark caught Chloe eavesdropping on one of his private conversations he cut off her ear. From that day on Chloe would wear a green turban to cover up her mutilation. Chloe, to win back the trust of her owner so she would not be sent to toil in the fields, hatched a plan. She made a birthday cake for the Woodruffs’ eldest daughter but spiked it with oleander leaves—a poisonous plant found on the plantation.

The family would become sick and Chloe, knowing the antidote, would be on hand to nurse them back to health and in doing so get back in her master good books—or that was the plan, at least. In actual fact, Chloe got her dosage wrong and Clark’s wife and two of his children died of poisoning. Distraught by her actions, Chloe confessed to the other slaves who panicked, believing they’d be blamed for hiding the culprit, hanged Chloe and threw her lifeless body in the Mississippi River. Creepy already, right? It’s about to get a whole lot creepier.

According to fable there’s an old Southern tradition stating that when a family member dies, all the mirrors in the home must be covered up so that the soul of the deceased will pass on to the next world and not become trapped in a reflection of this world. As was the norm, on the night of the tragic poisonings all the mirrors in the house were covered up—except one. Aside witnessing a ‘dark-skinned’ ghost with a ‘turban’ on her head wondering the plantation, visitors to the bed and breakfast are also shown an ornate mirror inside the home where the souls of the mother and children are said to be trapped.

Some claim to see handprints, others the faces of children but one thing’s for sure, it’s not the mirror you’d want to regularly do your hair in. On a side note, when Clark learned of the fate of his family he surrounded the house with myrtle crepe trees, hence the plantation’s name.
