Welcome to Ghostly World, the one-stop website for haunted locations, abandoned places, and ghost towns!

EST. 2012

Our History

GhostlyWorld.org launched on August 7th, 2012 as a site dedicated to all things haunted, abandoned, and ghostly. Over the course of the past five years, we have required a reputation as one of the largest, most comprehensive, and accurate websites in the paranormal field. We have been cited in numerous books and news articles, making us a reputable source for information.

Our name, Ghostly World (not to be confused with the movie Ghost World), originates from our dedication to covering haunts worldwide.

We’re a Community

We strive to ensure a safe community space for paranormal experiencers and enthusiasts, alike. Ghostly World welcomes anyone and everyone interested in learning more about hauntings, ghosts, and the forgotten stories of history. Opinions and ideas are always welcome (as long as you play nice – remember: we’re a community…save the swearing for the demonic entities).

Our Site

With over 200,000 views and growing, Ghostly World is on the fast track to becoming the largest database for haunts and abandoned places on the web!

We strive to deliver you the most accurate information possible and work with our community to add personal experiences from the locations we write about. All of our posts feature unbiased and factual information: you won’t find our opinions here. Ghostly World is a safe space to share your personal paranormal experience.

Most of all, we are not here to make you believe in ghosts: we’re here to let you decide.


For just $1.00 (or more), you can help us keep Ghostly World operating. Your support allows us to provide our content online for readers across the world. Thank you for helping Ghostly World!
