Calling all true-crime aficionados, we've rounded up the spookiest real-life haunted houses in the USA. We're not talking about the annual house of horrors that pop up every Halloween. No, these haunted homes, located in towns across the U.S., are the crime scenes for true tales of ax murders and massacres, lost children, and angry demons and ghosts – that's right, everything your scary-documentary–obsessed brain lives for. But here's the true test of your bravery: You can actually stay the night at some of these frightening abodes. (We also know about some haunted Airbnbs, if you're really into that sort of thing.) So, ghost hunters, read on for the spookiest haunted houses in the United States.
