In November of 2019, we traveled to Chicago, Illinois and one of the locations that we visited was the Chicago History Museum. Almost everyone we have talked to about this location did not realize that this museum currently houses the Abraham Lincoln death bed.
On July 17, 2016 we traveled down to Key West, Florida and one of the locations we had to stop in and visit was Captain Tony's Saloon. Quite an interesting place to visit and full of items that could cause a potential haunting.
In October of 2011, we traveled out to Los Angeles, and one of our stops on this trip as the Grauman's Chinese Theater. Not only is this a historical location, but there are several who believe the theater is also very haunted.
In June of 2017, we traveled up to Dearborn, Michigan and to the Henry Ford Museum. This will be one of several posts that we do about the museum and the Greenfield Village, but this one will be focused on the Presidential Limousines at the museum.
In July of 2015 we traveled to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and stopped in to see Betsy Ross. Of course the stop was at her former home, but she is still there as well.
In July of 2013, we traveled to Washington, D.C. and made out way over to Arlington National Cemetery. We had the privilege to witness the "Changing of the Guard" Ceremony while we were there.
In July of 2013 we traveled to Mount Vernon to visit the home and grave site of our Nation's first president, George Washington. Not only is Mount Vernon an awesome location to visit, on the grounds are several burials that most people overlook.
We have said it many time, if you want to find out the rich history of a town or village, go to the town's cemetery. Evergreen Cemetery in Gettysburg is a prime example, and here you will find many stories of those who where there during the Civil War battle of Gettysburg.
On many occasions we have traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Every time we visit we find a new story or something interesting that is either paranormal or historical related. One of these stories is about Elizabeth Thorn, The Angel of Gettysburg.
In July of 2017, we traveled to the Antietam Battlegrounds, and as we were driving around learning about the different locations, we came across the Mumma Cemetery. Of course we had to stop and check it out.
In November of 2018, we traveled out to San Diego, and one of our stops was to the Cemetery El Campo Santo in Old Town, San Diego. We found several paranormal reports about this old cemetery, and had to just stop there and experience it for ourselves.
We are going to go way back to July 19, 2006 for this one, back to our honeymoon and before we even had any clue about starting Our Haunted Travel adventures. This was one of the places we wanted to visit during our trip, and we were so glad that we did. Thomas Edison and Henry Ford's winter Estates (properties next to each other) in Fort Myers, Florida, now one large historical site.
On September 20, 2019, we had some visitors come in from out of town and wanted to take them down to see Lanterman's Mill. We made it in time to go inside for the tour, which we have experienced before; however, this time, we got to see them turn on the wheel.
The Harriet Taylor Upton House, a location near and dear to our hearts for many reasons. This is a great refurbished historical location that should be on your list to at least stop by and take a peak.
On July 8, 2019, we traveled to Point Pleasant, West Virginia and one of our stops was the location of the Silver Bridge Collapse in 1967. We spent some time at the location and the memorial.
On August 17, 2019 we traveled to the Star Barn in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania and took a ride on the Lincoln Train. This beautifully restored steam engine has two cars attached. A passenger car and a reconstructed Lincoln Funeral Car that you leave the train through after your train ride. In this video, we will share with you our ride and exit of the train.
We have visited the Austin Log Cabin on several occasions so it is hard to specify a certain date that were were there at the location. This building is not too far from where we live, and it is always interesting to visit.
In May of 2019, we traveled to Dundee Michigan, and took a tour of the Old Mill Museum. The building and antique collection were simply amazing, and this location is also what we like to call, "paranormal friendly". They embrace the paranormal claims at this location and love to talk about them too.
Come along and let us tell you a little bit about the old grist mill in our neighborhood. That's right, we live about five minutes away from the Lanterman's Mill in Youngstown, Ohio.
In August of 2018, we went down to the Youngstown B&O to get some footage for some videos about the location. We have been to this location several time for events and weddings in the past; however, this trip was to collect to video and photographs of the building.
