These are the locations and descriptions of hauntings across Michigan. Private residential locations should be changed slightly due to privacy concerns.

Ann Arbor: Old white house off the corner of Ann St. and S. Division. My mother was wallpapering and redesigning the place when her and her partner heard noises and banging coming from the attic. My mother opened the attic door and there was a huge rush of cold stale air while no windows or doors were open. It sounded like things were being broken, dropped, and dragged up there. Very erie and odd place to be.
Bath: In 1927 Andrew Kehoe blew up the Bath, Mi elementary school out of revenge against the city after facing foreclosure due to property taxes. He had planned the attack for months and hid massive amounts of dynomite under the school. There were two explosions which killed 44 people (many were children). And I believe 58 were injured? Had all the explosives gone off correctly the town would now be a crater. Before Kehoe detonated the bomb, he had been at home slaughtering his wife (who was dying from TB but brought home from the hospital so he could kill her...how kind) and then proceeded to burn down the house. He slit her throat, gave her several blows to the head and then burned her body out back in a wheel barrel...apparently no one knew it was a human for an entire day because the body was beyond recognition...as even being human. He also tied his team of horses to the barn so they couldn't escape and also burned down the barn. According to many vistors, you can smell the smoke still in the air and some people have even had their hands held by child spirits while walking away from the school. We have moved to Bath, Mi and there is definitely a strange atmosphere there. We both experienced stomach pains and such. We will be conducting an investigation ASAP. (5/31/09) update: The place is prone to EVPs however there is a sense of calm and rest that we're content with. Glad the children aren't stuck there.
Dexter: There are several haunted farm houses around the area but most famous is The Donovan House and Warlock Willies. I've been to the Dexter public library and went through all the old newspaper archives and found no article including a house fire there or any family murdering. The place is watched by the neighbors who are a bit strange but I'd be annoyed with all the kids sneaking around there too. There are some goats they store and feed in one of the property's barns. Some kids have graffitied "666" and other stupid things they don't understand. The place is odd however I believe it's due to the collective negative energy it's gathered from all the people there. I don't believe it's haunted from the past or anything though.
Warlock Willies is located on Huron River Dr. just before Zeeb Rd. heading towards Ann Arbor. Its located on the left and is a ancient rundown private cemetery. Its hidden and tucked away into the woods so its very hard to see. "His grave" is located under the giant oak tree. It's actually grown into the tree so you can barely see the stone from the grave. Someone has dug a hole in an attempt to find Willie (really its just willies as in goosebumps but apparently it's become a person haha). You're supposed to lay down on his grave and a shadow person/demon will sink through you and into the ground. There are some graves nearby, probably 20-30ft away which I feel aren't haunted and belong to some young girl who's not satan's child :). Across the street, past the railroad tracks, and down the hill there's an old Tepee foundation with a fire pit, benches and a round base. Its pretty cool and in a pretty location...I'm assuming a hippie built it but now the pubescent goths have turned it into a freak show.
The entire area along Huron River Drive in Dexter is haunted. It used to be populated by the Huron tribe, many people see native americans walking on the side of the road at night only to see them disappear in the rear-view mirror. My friend Kyle's house is located in the area and I can't even begin to tell the many stories that have happened there. Things opening the bathroom door and shower curtain, climbing into bed with you, native american man walking through the bedroom, etc. Freaky!
Holly: The Holly Hotel in Holly Michigan is one of the most haunted places in our nation! While filming for a reel for a productions company, we were honored to conduct an investigation at their hotel. Lots of bizarre EVPS. The creative director's camera was kicked, cold spots, and one of the dishes/art pieces in the parlor (about 8 ft off the ground) disappeared..."a-ported". There was even a dust ring/shadow in its place...the owner/manager had all the employees look for it (none of them touched it). I don't know if they have found it since our visit? The place burned down on more than one occassion...on the exact day, the exact hour and almost to the same minute! Something dark and unclean lives in the basement along with the upstairs bathroom. Credible men such as doctors, lawyers, professors have reported seeing a woman next to the urinals. Upon their visit, she begins to talk to them in their minds. She seems comforting and docile...however, she turns on them. I am assuming this is a demon or succubus of some sort. Her face mutates and she shows them the darker side...ugh! They end up running out of the bathroom, faces white, swearing about what they saw. All the employees are aware of the ghosts, and take a certain pride in their place of business. Check out their website!
Howell: Along with its horrible hick-history of being the home of the Grand Dragon of the KKK, a guy I dated used to live in Howell and after a bunch of bizarre things happened I researched and found out his property was recently built on the old sanitorium land. There are still some tunnels and sub-buildings underground but I don't get the best feeling from the place. The ex's house had a demon and I'll swear by it because I had to battle with it numerous occasions. A lot of people died there, it used to be used for the entire state of Michigan. Similar to the Traverse City hospital.
Northville: Off of Beck Rd. and 6 Mile behind the Home Depot and current running prison there's an abandoned men's prision. "Dehoco" (DEtroit HOuse of COrrections). There are patrol officers that will driveby to check on the place once in awhile. As long as they don't see cars in the driveway/roads they don't go in. You have to cross a field and enter through an open front window of the main entrance building. We felt like we were being followed the entire time, as if they were a foot away from your neck. We were in a huge room on the second floor where the inside has an entire perimeter of jail bars for whatever reason. As soon as we said, "I don't feel anything" Kyle saw a full apparition of a male outline in a blue tint. As we rounded the farthest corner there was a sound coming from where we entered. It was the EXACT sound as if someone was dragging their cup or spoon across the bars like you see in movies. Plenty of orbs. and paint hanging from the ceilings. Old antique, stale smell which I always find interesting :). Didn't take many pictures we were too scared to see what would show up haha.
Midland: Midland, Michigan has several "haunted" spots. The one I can verify is the older cemetery, I think its the "Midland Cemetery". Some CMU buddies and I went there during the Halloween season and had some bizarre experiences. When we pulled in the feeling was so overwhelming I hid behind someone's seat. Usually I'm the one that has to "keep it together" for the group but this time I was not a happy camper haha. I hid inside my big winter jacket and that was when I was given the nickname "Turtle". We were walking through the place and twice we came to some "paths" or walkways that I was not found of at all. They both seemed very dark and forboding so I said that we should skip them and walk another way. The other three people there all heard this but I never did oddly enough, but after I made those statements to walk elsewhere, there was a giggling of a little girl or something just as creepy. There are windchimes that go off when there's no wind. A lot of activity near the military section in the back (somehow we felt safer around them in that area than the rest of the place. Figured that military ghosts are probably willing to help out haha). As we walked back to the car on the gravel road, something was walking behind me and the gravel moved. It sounded as if someone was wearing boots and pivotted their feet so it ground in the dirt. Creepy place for sure!
Manchester: The cemetery with the civil war soldier statue is one of the places where I've had the most experiences. There is a dark presence in the far right corner, located near the only house built behind the place. There are creepy angel statues that aren't comforting when expected and hoping haha. Black mist/shadow has appeared in numerous pictures and isn't stationary in the pictures. Plenty of orbs, an odd amount of bugs and flies one night (not a good sign). We left a tape recorder there for 2 hours, came back and the feeling of the place had changed completely. Very, very dark and angry! A guy I was dating and I fell asleep in the basement of my parents and woke up around 2-3am (I'm hoping it wasn't 3am) after hearing a loud crash. We went upstairs to investigate and nothing was out of place. The next morning I brought up the incident and it reminded my dad. He has sleep apnea and uses a machine for breathing while sleeping and it weighs a good 30lbs and isn't with in arms reach from the bed. Randomly that night it was tossed across the room about 4-6ft. Something was mad and my dad was the only one who didn't wear a cross that night. (he never believes in this kind of stuff but was definitely freaked out by it).
Mount Pleasant: The Mill Pond in Mount Pleasant is definitely haunted. An old MPPR member Dustin and I were walking down there one night which is a very creepy experience. Its odd how much darker the area seems than other nearby spots. While we were walking through the area I had a "vision" or thought in my mind that something was wanting to claw and scratch us. I usually never have that sensation so that was also strange. When we left later than evening Dustin called me and informed me that he had found random claw marks on his skin that weren't there previously. Also one of the dorms in the "towers" section of the CMU campus (I used to go to CMU) is haunted. Whatever tower is the one left of Campbell Hall (where I stayed) is the one that's haunted. Some say a student committed suicide there but who knows. Radios turn on and off by themselves. A student I used to know was drinking and smoking in his dorm room with some buddies secretly and just hanging when all of a sudden someone asked, "Who was just here? There was someone there in that chair, but who was it?" They all had felt a presence but had no idea about paranormal events.
South Lyon: The South Lyon Hotel is reported to be quite haunted. They are very busy with frequent requests by paranormal groups so scheduling may or may not be difficult. They have a great general manager who is also curious as to the metaphysical world. If you aren't able to investigate, you can have a good meal there if you find some spare time.
Traverse City: There's a state hospital/assylum that's horribly haunted by some nasty things I've heard. Disfigured-looking animals crawl in the basement corridors (demons I'm assuming), compasses not working, flash lights/cameras/batteries burning out. People's holy water and Bibles being tossed out of the entrance upon walking in, etc. It just sounds nasty so stay out of there haha!
Ypsilanti: There were several murders committed within the area of Geddes Rd. and Leforge Rd. The victims were students from Eastern Michigan University and the University of Michigan. If you drive down the road, people have claimed that your car's truck will open and some can still see the scilo haunted by one of the female victims. Recently there was also a soon-to-be serial killer who was mutilating people's animals and pets and then leaving them in plastic bags in random locations. There are many old haunted victorian houses in area also.
