5 Haunted Houses for Sale That Will Spook You Senseless

Haunted house for sale in Pennsylvania

Leechburg, Pennsylvania

This brick farmhouse, circa 1858, is located in Leechburg, a sleepy town outside of Pittsburgh. The home was once part of a 102-acre farm and whoever buys it will have rights to gas wells that were drilled on the property. (Note: Leechburg was the first place in the country were natural gas was used in iron production). The home’s listing indicates that “a ghost or two” may roam its historic halls. We can’t say for certain, but perhaps the home’s original owner still watches over his beloved farmhouse and its lovely grounds.

haunted house in Louisiana

Youngsville, Louisiana

If you decide to invest in this Acadian-style homestead, you’ll get a lot for your money. The home sits on five acres of land and comes with a guest house, a gazebo that overlooks a fully stocked pond, a chicken coop and a saltwater pond. Ah, yes, and a two-story pigeonnier with a spiral staircase (‘cause everyone needs one of those). The 12-foot ceilings, original hardwood floors and stained glass windows are indeed impressive, but most interesting, perhaps, is the fact that some ghosts will come along with your purchase. Don’t mind hearing a few disembodied footsteps? You’ll love this place!

Haunted house for sale in New Orleans

New Orleans, Louisiana

We’ll just cut to the chase: This fully restored Antebellum Greek Revival home is a featured stop on the Haunted New Orleans ghost tours. The story goes that the Griffin House, so named in honor of its builder and first owner, was occupied by Union troops during the Civil War and used as a barracks and munitions storage space. Two Confederate deserters were arrested and held prisoner in the home. Rather than face execution, each soldier shot the other ... in the heart. Throughout the years, owners and visitors have claimed to hear and see things: the loud thumping steps of a boot-clad stranger, the clinking sound of chains, distant screams and the ghostly outlines of what appear to be two homesick, distraught soldiers. If you've got the guts, this home could be yours — for a price under appraised value (natch).

Haunted House for sale in New Mexico

Silver City, New Mexico

This town was formed in 1870 after — you guessed it — silver was discovered in and around the area. A big mining town and an important part of Wild West history, Silver City is still a thriving little community that boasts a beautiful historic downtown, where you’ll find this circa-1890 Victorian. The “Uhli home,” as it is known, was built by one of the town’s earliest settlers, Stefan Uhli, who also owned the popular Cave Saloon (now an antiques shop) in town. The listing states that the home comes with a lot of history and "possibly even a ghost to go with it." Could the spirits of Stefan and his wife Suzanna still walk the halls of this two-story, five-bedroom beauty?
