  • He Found An Old Box While Remodeling His Home, What Was Inside… NO WAY.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_169245_lifebuzz-28abc3dd86d3b35e199fd4bec975d5a0-thumb_800

    We all secretly want to find treasure. We can blame it The Goonies, Indiana Jones, or our code breaking heroes but our desire to happen upon wealth — be it gold, cash, or a chest of jewels — has always been there. And our wishes have been granted in small ways.

    There are some folks who find coins on the ground and others that are lucky enough to find bills. There are also some people who commit their lives to studying these treasures. They're called numismatists and they study and collect different types of currency. But we all know that sometimes, the best things come to us when we least expect it.

    In today's story, Imgur user and 35-year-old DIYer branik12 struck gold while remodeling a family home, built in the late 1940s. Branik12 had completely remodeled the first and second floors and headed towards the basement where he found a strange box in the ceiling. Inside the box, there were newspapers and, you guessed it, a stash of cash.

    Continue reading to vicariously live through him (money not included).

    Here's the box Imgur user branik12 found during a recent home remodel.

    Before we get to the inside contents, let's start from the beginning. Here we are in the basement.

    After peeling back the walls, he found some writing and drawings. "Nothing too special here," he wrote.

    What do you make of these drawings? Branik12 wondered if they were swastikas.

    When he removed the ceiling, there was about a 1/4 inch of dust. They used plastic to keep from the dust spreading everywhere.

    Check it out! It's the box from the first photo.

    Here's another photo with flash. This photo and the previous ones were staged but the remaining photos are genuine.

    "I took the box outside and gathered the wife. It has something inside, but not heavy like coins or gold bars. Might get lucky though. Could be old sports cards?"

    Before they dove in, they searched for a banana for scale.

    Can you imagine the anticipation while pulling the string? It could be nothing, it could be everything they've ever needed!

    "We are starting to guess a lot at this point. Cash? Cards? Recipes?"

    I know what you're thinking… "Just open the box."

    The secret contents were wrapped in some wax paper or something similar for protection.

    Newspaper was used to line the bottom of the box, which is an interesting piece of history in itself.

    The paper is dated March 25, 1951 so we can assume that this is probably around the same time that the box was hidden.

    Okay, this is what we were waiting for… COLD HARD CASH! Three hefty stacks of it. Our dreams finally came true! Well… not for us, for this guy.

    Not sure how he was able to arrange the contents so patiently and take proper photos. We would've been ripping through the wax paper.

    One pile is all twenties, adding up to a couple thousand. "We are freaking out at this point," he notes. "This doesn't happen to us! What do we do? Where are the cameras?"

    In the second pile, there were all fifties, adding up to around $5k. The third pile is all hundreds.

    These bills look almost foreign. There are brown notes, a gold certificate, and star notes. The bills are dated 1928-1934.

    Wait! There's more where that came from. After relishing in the discovery for about a week, he went back to work in the basement.

    And would you look at that? He came upon another box. He was freaking out again, and we don't blame him!

    The poster stated that this box was twice as heavy as the first. He's excited because he sees cash through the tiny vent.

    He tore through the ceiling to see if there were any other boxes. Turns out that this was the last one.

    He waited for his wife to come home. Sweet guy, right? No banana this time after receiving criticism that the previous banana was off scale.

    Some people wait a lifetime… for a moment like this. This is what Kelly Clarkson must've been singing about.

    The second box was filled with mostly twenties. Isn't it beautiful?

    He made bands to organize them. The newer bills are from cash they made from selling the rare bills. In total, they came up $45k. Anyone else ready to strip through their walls and ceilings?

    We know you probably have a few questions. The poster kindly answered a few already and we'll try to sum them up here. Yes, they spoke with an estate lawyer to make sure that the cash was theirs. Some of the bills were appraised, with about 10 of them being worth 4x face value. As aforementioned, the money will be put towards their mortgage.

    Branik12 ended his second post by responding to question about whether or not he believed this was good karma for being a good person.

    "We are generally good people," he wrote. "We try to help other when we can. General acts of kindness go a long ways. I however don't believe in karma.

  • Guys Are Finally Getting Revenge On Girlfriends Who Steal Their Hoodies.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_169250_lifebuzz-19e2a8368eeaa8851b68f319198b61dd-thumb_800

    The seasons are changing and it's slowly getting colder and colder. This means it's time to dress up in layers of clothing and heavy coats. Sweater weather is upon us! However, that's not necessarily good news to celebrate.

    For many men, it's the time of the year they dread most. Is it because they don't like the cold? Technically speaking, yes. It's because women keep "borrowing" their jackets for the cold and well… the men pretty much never see it ever again.

    A man could just deny a woman's request for his jacket, but then he would be deemed as rude. So it's really a lose-lose situation for them. However, it seems this year they've decided to take a stand (in the most entertaining way possible).

    As usual, we see evidence of women preparing to rob men of all their outerwear.

    As usual, we see evidence of women preparing to rob men of all their outerwear.

    Instead of hiding from these savages, men have decided to stand up against them this year by taking a different approach.

    Instead of letting women steal their jackets, they've decided to steal the women's jackets!

    For once, men are giving a women a taste of their own medicine.

    And to show a united front, the men have been posting photos of their stolen hoodies in hopes of inspiring other men to do the same.

    It all started with this man, 21-year-old Godswill Muofhe who was the first to post about it on his Twitter account.

    And here's the original tweet that started it all. You can see that it's gained a lot of attention as it has reached over 70,000 likes and over 40,000 retweets.

    The movement has gotten so big, it even has its own hashtag: #TakeHerHoodie.

    Men all over have been successfully stealing their woman's hoodies and posting photos on all social media platforms including Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

    Men have finally decided to end their silence and take action. Their message couldn't be any clearer.

    This movement is no joke and women aren't taking the situation lightly either.

    Although all the photos are funny and entertaining to look at, once a woman becomes a victim to this movement, there's a big chance a lot of her hoodies will be stretched out.

    And nobody wants that!

    Who knows how long this movement will last. Maybe one day, women will finally sympathize and stop stealing men's hoodies.

    But for now… ladies, hide your clothes!

  • One-Legged Guy Nails His Halloween Costume, And We Can’t Stop Laughing.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_169107_lifebuzz-862dfd11c44138cd98757710530d89cd-thumb_800

    Cancer may have taken Josh Sundquist's leg away but it certainly didn't take away his love for Halloween. Now let's face it. There aren't too many one-legged costumes floating around in Party City or on Amazon.com. But that didn't kill Sunquist's buzz in the least. The creative genius turned a disadvantage into an advantage by coming up with some awesome costumes that make light of an otherwise tough life as an amputee. In the process he proved that if he can have an abundant Halloween spirit, anyone can. Take a look at the incredible costumes he came up with that show he certainly has a leg up the situation.

    Sundquist had to find a costume that would incorprate his uniqueness. So he came up with a delicious solution.

    In 2010, he turned himself into the Gingerbread man from “Shrek” which naturally had one leg missing because it had been bitten off.

    For Sundquist, life with only one leg can be a drag sometimes.

    Especially when he and his wife, Ashley got inspired by the one legged lamp from the classic film, “The Christmas Story.”

    Sundquist taught us that being an amputee can improve your ability to do handstands as an exotic bird.

    So in 2013, he came up with the idea of dressing up as a flamingo after visiting the zoo. In the end, his butt became the creature’s head, his one foot was its head and then he used crutches to make the legs.

    If there's one thing you can say about him is that he's creative.

    It’s a far cry from the little boy who lost his leg at the age of 9, but was later diagnosed cancer-free by the time he was 13.

    He's not shy on social media and he always welcomes requests and suggestions from his followers.

    In 2014, he asked YouTubers to suggest ideas for a Halloween costume, and they came up with a table soccer player, which he was more than happy to try to make. Besides, he does play soccer in real life too. He’s even a part of the U.S. Amputee Soccer Team.

    Does something seem a little off to you about this IHOP Restaurant sign?

    It should. It’s not really a sign at all. It’s Sundquist in a really convincing costume. Before anyone else could make the joke on social media, he beat them to the punch and said he chose this because IHOP sounds like “I Hop.”

    Losing his leg had initially made him feel very awkward.

    So he fought that socially odd sensation with his costumes in order to feel better about himself and have a little fun in the process too.

    He's certainly come a long way, and now he's an inspiration to others.

    Sundquist began ski-racing at 16 and eventually grew up to become a part of the U.S. Paralympic Ski Team. He’s also working wonders as a motivational speaker to show others like him that there is life after amputation.

  • Marilyn Monroe’s ‘JFK Dress’ Is Being Sold… Along With Her Most Intimate Belongings.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_169248_lifebuzz-b8a68cf3fdcdc8383db601ae9e057cfd-thumb_800

    Marilyn Monroe's departure from the physical world due to her 1962 overdose left the world heavy-hearted, and we still have yet to recover. We're still very much under her spell, equally captivated by her beauty and talent, swept away by her enduring mystique that tells us there's more to her much than the dumb blondes she played, and saddened by her difficult childhood and sudden end.

    Those of us that can't let go can revisit the star in some of her greatest films. There's the iconic film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes featuring her mesmerizing performance of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," a hit that is "often imitated, never duplicated," and that unforgettable subway grate scene — the one where Marilyn fights with the wind in her famous white dress — in The Seven Year Itch.

    For the most ardent fans, there is a chance to bid on some of the items worn, owned, and used by Monroe herself at an auction on Saturday, November 19, and Sunday November 20, in Los Angeles. This rare opportunity was made by possible by three major collections, including that of David Gainsborough-Roberts and Lee Strasberg. The third collection is a combination of items originally sold at auctions organized by Christie's and Julien's.

    United States Department of Defense Identification Card

    This is the closest we can get to Marilyn Monroe’s autograph. It’s even more intimate because it’s her actual signature, a combination of her birth and married name (Norma Jeane DiMaggio). The backside of the card includes her fingerprints and description.

    Custom Calorie Restricted Diet

    This two-page calorie restricted diet was provided to the actress by Dr. Leon Krohn. Notice that he recommended 1000 calories, 100 grams protein, and cutting down on sugar, fats, and carbohydrates (in this case, opting for whole wheat).

    Minaudière Compact (Secret Cigarette Stash)

    This ladies evening minaudière compact contains eight Philip Morris cigarettes.

    Compact, Tube of Michel Lipstick, Clear Plastic Comb, Loose Powder

    Heres a closer look at some of her makeup, half-used.

    This particular tube of lipstick with a rhinestone top has a starting bid of $1,500. How glamorous is this item?

    A Ticket to JFK's Birthday Party Gala

    This ticket to John F. Kennedy’s May 19, 1962 Birthday Party Gala at Madison Square Garden is worth $3,000-$5,000. It is there that Monroe famously sang Happy Birthday to him.

    The "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" Dress

    This is one of the most sought after items in the auction. It’s the actual dress she wore while singing Happy Birthday. Monroe told event planners that she would be in discreet attire but the chiffon dress appeared more like a second skin. It’s expected to go for $2-3 million. Someone has already placed a $1 million bid on it.

    Conditioning Cream, Empty Pill Bottle

    These photographs of Marilyn are beautiful and intimate. She didn't need a professional photographer to look like a star.

    Royal Typewriter

    Can you imagine having this grey Royal Quiet De Luxe model typewriter? It comes with a tweed style hard carrying case. It’s expected to go for up to $1,200.

    Gucci Address Book

    There’s something magical about this brown leather address book. Here you’ll find high profile contacts, including Marlon Brando and Lee Strasberg, most of which were written by Marilyn herself. The front of the book is stamped “M.M.” and inside there’s a list of personal goals.

    A Secret Recipe for the Perfect Thanksgiving Stuffing

    This recipe on a City Title Insurance Company of San Francisco notepad was scribbled by Monroe herself. It makes a perfect addition to your collection for the holidays, if you can afford the $10-$20K it’s worth.

    Twelve Kitchen Utensils

    Cook like Marilyn with her cooking spoons, spatulas, spreaders, knives, a serving fork, and a baster with original vintage packaging.

    Long-Sleeve Red Sequin Gown

    Monroe wore this matching dress with Jane Russell during their performance of “A Little Girl from Little Rock” in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

    Carnation Pink Wiggle Dress

    The beautiful star wore this number as the femme fatale Rose Loomis in her film noir thriller Niagara. It accentuated all the right places on her beautiful figure.

    Leotard from "That Old Black Magic"

    Remember her 1956 film Bus Stop? Monroe sung “That Old Black Magic” in this jade green embellished satin leotard.

    Make sure to browse the online auction for other major pieces of Marilyn's wardrobe.

    Costume Jewelry

    These costume jewelry earrings were worn by Monroe in How to Marry a Millionaire. They’re predicted to go for $80,000- $100,000.

    Receipt for Chanel No. 5 Perfume

    The total cost of $73.15 is inclusive of tax and delivery. Who would’ve guessed that a receipt would be estimated at $400-600?

    Scripts Used on Set

    L: Some Like It Hot, R: Something’s Got to Give

    And finally, unwind in Marilyn Monroe's comfy and elegant reading chair.

  • Tea-Seller Became A Model After ONE Photo Went Viral Online.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_169246_lifebuzz-6387e8b6a4e84de5b567236be20bdb82-thumb_800

    Back in the good old days, models used to get discovered while walking down a street. Today, you don’t have to be a model scout to give someone the chance to be a top model. With the power of social media, the world is becoming smaller. A photo, commentary, or video can be shared around the world within seconds.

    That may explain why you have Instagram celebrities who share their talent for millions to see. Still, these individuals are seeking online fame. Others are simply thrust into the spotlight. 18-year-old Arshad Khan does not own a phone to take selfies of his piercing, clear blue eyes. Still, one photo of him has made him an online heartthrob.

    The teen owes his sudden fame to photographer Jiah Ali. The shutterbug took Khan’s photo as part of her street series that she shared on Twitter. Khan had no idea saying yes to his photo being taken would change his life overnight.

    Arshad Khan has been selling tea in a bazaar in Islamabad for years. He also sells fruits and vegetables at his stand.

    You may remember the famous and iconic photo of the young Afghan girl on the cover of the National Geographic magazine's June 1986 issue. Khan is part of the same Pashtun ethnic group.

    Khan was quickly signed on to a modelling contract. His first job has been to model for a clothing line called Fitin.pk.

    Ali in the green dress is a wedding and freelance photographer. She does not want to take credit for Khan's sudden fame, she feels she was just there at the right place and the right time.

    Many are encouraging Khan to get into acting. He says he will consider it if it's "clean, honourable work."

  • Wallet Lost By Soldier 71 Years Ago Is Finally Returned To His Family.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_169194_lifebuzz-b4fd6e5c70d4a465265b0b18c29cd6c5-thumb_800

    Losing your father in any war is a big loss that can leave an emptiness in your heart forever. Just ask Robin Ashby, who lost his WWII dad, Kenneth, when he was just a kid. But the past has a way of coming back to haunt you and in this case, that was actually a good thing. When Kenneth lost his life, he left something behind that made its way back to his son several decades later, and it brought tears of sadness and overwhelming joy, and he owes it all to a Dutch Family who had guarded the fallen soldier's wallet full of hidden treasures and then decided to seek out his descendants and return it to the rightful owners.

    Who could have imagined that the wallet would have turned decades later?

    Well for Kenneth’s son, Robin, the emotions were overwhelming when another man’s family, including his granddaughters, Jasmijn and Myrthe, traveled from their home in the Netherlands to personally hand deliver the wallet to him.

    It's been over 70 years and the leather wallet was still reasonably well preserved.

    It had been missing since Ashby had been stationed in the south-eastern Netherlands town of Haelen.

  • Loyal Dog Waits Patiently For The Jerks Who Left Him Behind With The Trash.

    During financial hardships, families are forced to make difficult decisions. As money gets tighter, everything begins to be divided into the "necessity" or "luxury" list. Eating out, vacations, new clothes are things many families give up. Sometimes, though, things do not improve right away and the list of necessity gets narrower, while luxury and splurging, cease to exist.

    Pets are the last victims to feel the financial crisis in a family. Providing them with proper food and adequate health care are things that unfortunately are too high for some folks to afford. Offering family and friends to adopt their pet or calling a rescue shelters are some of the options the canines’ humans seek.

    Still, when the available options run out, tough and heartbreaking decisions have to be made. As hard as it is for families to abandon their pets, it does not compare to the confusion, fear, and heartbreak it is for the furry creatures.

    A family in Michigan, Detroit, was evicted from their home. They left behind a mattress, a couple dressers, and other junk in the front driveway.

    The humans also left behind their pit bull Boo. He wouldn't move from where he was left, waiting for his family.

    The family returned to get a few things but never took Boo with them.

    A neighbour fed the dog and tried to call animal shelters but they all refused to take him.

    Mike Diesel, founder of the Detroit Youth and Dog Rescue was finally contacted.

    It took time for Boo and Diesel to get acquainted. Diesel started befriending the canine on a Sunday at 2:30 p.m. and stayed there till 1:00 a.m. the next morning.

    While there, Diesel said he spoke to Boo and gave him food.

    Later in the day, Diesel returned with two sausage McMuffins and two hash browns to share with his new friend. Boo ended up eating everything.

    After five hours, Boo finally gave in to leaving the mattress his old family left behind.

    Boo was taken to a local animal hospital where he is being treated for heartworms. "Boo has warmed up to me in an amazing way already and truly shows and proves the love of the pit bull and trust they have in humans," says Diesel. If you are interested in supporting the Detroit Youth & Dog Rescue you can do so by visiting their website to make a donation.

    Life's already kicking you in the nuts, whether you have them or not. But life isn't the only one. There's a force far crueler out there and they're called rich kids. Yeah, we're talking about a bunch of underachieving yet way too financially over-privileged teens and young adults who get perverse pleasure at shoving their rich lifestyle in your face through Snapchat. Now you can start your morning feeling just a little worse. These kids love to drink and party all day inside their fancy schmanzy homes, pools, yachts, and luxurious sports cars and you'll simply love to hate them.

    If you ran out of tissues, you'll probably have to play tricks to afford a box of Kleenex.

    Fortunately, these kids can just use a pair of twenty dollar bills to wipe the snot from their noses, but not their snootiness.

  • 15 Haunted Hotels You Can Actually Spend The Night In… YIKES.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_168937_lifebuzz-d81b55e543cf389c36ee1a13212bc192-thumb_800

    As we get closer to Halloween we hear more stories of the scary and unexplainable kind. It happens every year around this time, but that doesn’t mean that the stories are restricted to the month of October. There are plenty of stories that happen all throughout the year and they never seem to end.

    Haunted houses and hotels are some of the most frequently told stories and while some of them seem like they are completely bogus, there are plenty that have enough evidence to back them up.

    There are several lists available of the most haunted places in the world and many of them are right here in the United States. There are several paranormal investigators that chase down these claims and some of them come up empty and some others that say they have found proof that haunting really exists in some of these places.

    Some of the stories are a little scary and some of them are flat out amazing. The one thing that you can’t get away from though is that most of the stories happen to people when they are alone. Those obviously can’t be verified all that easily. The experiences that are witnessed by several people at the same time though have to make you think.

    Here are some of the most haunted places around and some of the stories that have been told about them.

    #1. The Bourbon Orleans Hotel

    The Bourbon Orleans Hotel is one of the more famous hotels for being haunted in New Orleans. Prior to the hotel there was an old Ballroom and then a convent on the grounds.

    Famous psychic Chip Coffey once performed a reading here and made contact with several spirits. Two of them were a little girl and a little boy who he said had sudden deaths many years ago.

    #2. The Stanley Hotel

    The Stanley Hotel has the look of a place that has spirits running through it. It has been restored to look just like it did in its hey day and it’s open daily for visitors.

    Back in the 1800’s it was a destination for those that were looking for a peaceful getaway. If it looks familiar to you that’s because Steven King used it as the inspiration for his horror book and then movie The Shining. That breathed new life into the old building and saved the place from being torn down. But visit at your own risk because there is a reason that King was inspired to do the book.

    #3. The Emily Morgan Hotel

    The Emily Morgan Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, is said to be the #3 most haunted place in the world. If that’s not a good enough reason to stay away I don’t know what could be.

    Depending on who you talk to there you may get some stories of experiences while others may not say a thing. Long ago there was a medical facility on the grounds and there are rumors that say the former patients from the 12th and 14th floors are the ones that walk the grounds currently. So you can take that information and do with it what you will but I’ll stay away!

    #4. The Omni Parker House

    If you are looking for haunted places in New England there are no shortages of destinations. People say that The Omni Parker House however is the most haunted in the region. So if that’s your kind of thing now you know where to go.

    It’s located right in the center of Boston and it has been there since 1855. Steven King used stories from the hotel for his book “1408.” He was inspired by stories that he heard that happened in Room 303 but that’s not the only room that has reported strange happenings. There have also been reports about Room 1012 and others from the 9th and 10th floors. Choose your room carefully there!

    #5. The Southern Mansion

    Cape May is the home to The Southern Mansion which is called America’s oldest and most haunted seaside resort. There have been several reports of ghosts walking the grounds in groups. It was built back in 1863 and there are plenty of reports about people that have died there over the years.

    This place has countless stories of encounters with those that are no longer living and there are plenty of references to back up the stories. If you are one of those that seek out places like this you should start planning your trip to The Southern Mansion today!


    #6. The Audubon Cottages

    New Orleans has been the site of many historic events over the years. So there are plenty of places in the region that are said to be haunted. Another one of them is The Audubon Cottages. This area was built back in the late 1700’s so you can only imagine all of the things that have taken place there.

    There have been readings taken on the grounds several times with results that can’t be explained. But there aren’t a lot of stories about experiences there so you’ll have to make your own judgement. Unexplained readings and no stories tells me that maybe those that think about talking are not given the chance to do so? It could be a possibility!

    #7. The Marshall House

    Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia. That alone tells you that plenty has happened there and it may be a prime spot for haunted areas. The Marshall House seems to have the most reports of experiences in the area though.

    It opened back in 1851 and there have been reports of ghost sightings, sounds of children in the hallways at night, and water faucets that turn themselves on. In 2015 USA Today named it the 8th most haunted hotel in the world.

    #8. The Hay-Adams

    Washington D.C. is the home to The Hay-Adams which is a luxury hotel that has had its share of reports of unexplained experiences. Henry Adams and John Hay each had homes on the site in 1885 and it’s said that Adams’ wife haunts the current building.

    Marian Hooper Adams committed suicide in 1885 and it’s said that she currently roams the hallways of the current building. They say that her presence is announced with the smell of almonds so if you happen to get a whiff of that you’ll know it’s time to move on.

    #9. The Hotel Sorrento

    The Hotel Sorrento is located in the Seattle, Washington, area and was once named one of the 13 most haunted hotels in the world by USA Today. It opened up back in 1909 and was named a city landmark in 2010.

    There are stories that the building is haunted by the ghost of Alice B. Toklas but nobody can seem to pinpoint why. Some reports say that she likes to hang out in Room 408 and she wanders the halls of the 4th floor quite frequently. However, there are many inconsistencies in the stories so take them for what you will.

    #10. The Hotel Provincial

    The Hotel Provincial has been restored to look like the days when it was a bustling destination back in the 1800’s. What that does is it gives those that are no longer with us a comfortable setting that feels like home.

    Many of the buildings on the grounds were used as a hospital during the Civil War and many soldiers lost their lives there. There are countless reports that say those soldiers still roam the grounds today. While it looks like a great place now you might want to stay away from there. Unless you like running into soldiers that were alive over a hundred years ago.

    #11. The Copper Queen Hotel

    The Copper Queen Hotel is located in Bisbee, Arizona, which is about a hundred miles south of Tucson. It’s a great place to visit if you like haunted hotels. But if you don’t like that kind of thing you had better stay away from here. There are way too many stories about this place being one of the most haunted areas in the western part of the country.

    One of the stories is about a 30-year-old prostitute that worked there on the third floor back in the 1930’s. She was hoping to find a husband in one of her clients and when she thought she found him, he rejected her. Distraught by the rejection, she killed herself and still roams the building today. This is just one of countless stories about experiences in this place.

    #12. The Biltmore Hotel

    The Biltmore Hotel is located in Coral Gables, Florida, in the Miami area. It’s a beautiful place for anyone visiting the area but its history tells tales of the building being haunted. It was built back in 1926 and it has been the home of several different things before it became a hotel. It was once a hospital and the University of Miami once used it as well.

    The stories of haunting here seem to be just that though. There have been a few reports back in the day of ghost sightings but none of them can be verified. The only thing that can really be verified is that for years a woman told ghost stories in the lobby every night and they were a big hit with visitors. Those that are looking for a truly haunted place might be disappointed if they visit here.

    #13. The Omni Shoreham

    Built in 1930, The Omni Shoreham is located in the Woodley Park area of Washington D.C. This place has countless stories of not only haunting taking place but some of them are quite gruesome. Over the years several people have died there and the place is so nice they don’t seem to want to leave.

    There have been reports of pianos playing at night, unexplained winds, sounds of moving carts in the hallways, flickering lights and dresser drawers that open and close by themselves. Those are the bulk of the experiences that have been reported there and those don’t even touch on the little girl that roams the hallways or the unexplained carpets that have been reported to be covered with blood.

    #14. The Lizzy Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum

    Back in 1892 Andrew and Abbey Borden were murdered in their Fall River, Massachusetts, home with a hatchet. Their daughter Lizzie was believed to be the murderer but she was found not guilty at her trial.

    Many people that have visited the Lizzy Borden Bed and Breakfast Museum say that Lizzie is still stalking the place. There have been many reports over the years including one time when a man wanted to record sounds that he had hoped to hear in one of the rooms. He realized that his battery was dead and he wasn’t going to be able to do so. Several people report that they heard a rolling along the floor and then the exact battery that the man needed rolled up against his feet. Some say it was Lizzie. You decide for yourself.

    #15. The Chapman Inn

    Located in Bethel, Maine, The Chapman Inn has been long reported to be haunted. Investigators have reported that they have found several ghosts in the building including the soul of Abigail Chapman, who was the daughter of William, the man that built the house.

    Some of the reports say that people have heard footsteps when nobody else was around, cold winds in warm rooms, and lights that turn on and off without any help. One woman once reported that she entered her room to find a woman standing there who told her she was in the wrong room. The woman then put her finger to her lips and told the guest to “Shhh” and then vanished into thin air.
