Civic Arena

Friday, January 30th, 2009

The neighborhood that was demolished to build the arena is said to come alive at night. The whole dome suddenly filling with the sounds of people, streetcars and car horns. Mario Lemieux, star player for the Pittsburgh Penguins has said he’s seen shadowy guys in 1920s clothes mulling about in the halls. The Civic Arena had changed names its now called The Mellon Arena.I was there a few times for concerts like Marilyn Manson,Metallica,Nirvana and much more.I used to live in that area of where Mellon Area is at i always knew the place was haunted when i was there u really couldn’t hear anything except for yelling and people getting their food and drinks.But i will do more investigating when i go back home to Pittsburgh.

Allegheny General Hospital South Tower

Friday, January 30th, 2009

Oldest part of the hospital. Noises and people talking are heard, and some have seen things.I used to go passed Allegheny General Hospital all the time when i was going to Pittsburgh.When i went to Allegheny General Hospital because my dad was there.All i have to say when i first stepped inside of the hospital i knew it was haunted or has spirit activity i think all hospitals have ghosts or spirit activity.I doubt that people working at the hospital will talk about the hauntings or not you might be able to find some person who had experience there and i know some places that they aren’t allowed to talk about the hauntings.

Penn State University

The ghost of a mule haunts the Watts Hall dormitory on this campus.Old Coaly,asthe mule called,was one of the original pack mules that worked to build the university in the 1850’s.Coaly lived to a ripe old age,when he died his remains were perversed and displayed in the Old Main Building.After the building was destroyed by a fire in the early 1900’s,Coaly’s remains were stored in the basement of Watts Hall.Then,in the 1960’s,Coaly skeleton was once again put on display, this time at the Agricultural Building.

Ever since,Old Coaly’s ghost has been reported standing in the hallway outside the storage room back in Watts Hall.Sometimes, his noisy braying is heard coming from behind the locked door.Another haunted spot on this campus is in Runkle Hall.A third-floor room there was the scene of poltergeist activity in the fall of 1994.A resident assistant reported loud banging sounds,lights blinking on and off and a disembodied voice spoke incoherently.She also said that her mattress and pillows were”breathing”rising and falling in a regular pattern.The University investigated but could find no explanation.
