Around Halloween, many TV shows feature haunted locations. As they say, “‘Tis the season!”
Usually, TV producers choose those sites because they look creepy.
Those places are well-known haunts. Something dramatic (and perhaps scary) is likely to happen at least once during the show.
Those same haunted locations can be great if you’re looking for nerves-of-steel investigation sites, too.
Or, they can be too extreme.

Look through back issues of local newspapers and magazines, from around Halloween. Every year, most periodicals feature local, haunted locations, including some you can investigate or tour.
