Haunted Houses by Corinne May Botz
This book and its evocative blend of photographs and ghost stories will attract anyone drawn to the paranormal, whether in literature, television, or film.
Haunted Houses includes more than eighty haunted buildings, from the legendary to the ordinary, including Edgar Allan Poe’s house in Baltimore, a New Jersey tavern, and a Massachusetts farmhouse, a log cabin in Kentucky, and a number of private residences. The text includes ghost stories told to the author by those who lived through the moving rugs, creaking floors, apparitions, disappearing - and reappearing - objects, cries in the night, mysteriously burning candles, and other unexplained occurrences.
