The grim history of America’s most haunted prison

I lay on my bunk. 
The days and nights bleed together. There is only a small circle of light from the ceiling that peers into the cell every now and again. Two doors lead to the outside world. One to the prison. One to my cinder block pen.
I lay. I think. I plan.

Welcome to my blog!

Don’t you hate how far some haunted attractions can be? What if I told you that there are places near you where you can see spooky places?

I’m Lauren Kubiak and I have decided to search the hidden treasures of spine-chilling buildings and sites in my own area. I love going to scary places and this is the perfect time for me to go exploring and write about it!

In the upcoming weeks I plan on going to sites such as Fort Delaware in Delaware City, The Barnsboro Inn in my town and many more. I would like to find the history of each place and why it is considered “haunted.”

I will be conducting interviews with not only the owner or person(s) in charge but with people who have been there and are convinced of a haunting. I’d like to get my hands on as much information that I can for each site so I can develop a compelling story.

Some stories I plan to write include a Q&A, video interviews, audio interviews and photographs.

Photographing the location is very important and capturing proof of a spirit would be the greatest accomplishment.

I am currently planning the upcoming months and have a few concrete dates. I will be visiting Fort Delaware October 8 for a Paranormal Adventure. Please check back on my page for the upcoming events.

Sit back, relax and get spooked!
