When it Comes to Creepy, HGTV Picked This Spot as #1 in Michigan
Hold onto your broomsticks, folks, because the eerie season just got much spookier! HGTV has just unveiled its latest haunt-ranking revelation of the "Creepiest Places in All 50 States". Any guesses for Michigan?
In their search for those places across the country that can send shivers up your spine with their appearance or even history, HGTV may have found one the best for eerie vibes for their pick in Michigan.
Picture this: a place where the whispering winds carry ghostly tales from centuries past, where historic landmarks have more than a few skeletons in their closets, and where the twilight hours reveal a shadowy side you never knew existed. Welcome to Mackinac Island.
From the infamous Fort Mackinac, where the restless spirits of soldiers are said to patrol still, to the mysterious Arch Rock, which harbors its spectral secrets, this island is a treasure trove of paranormal activity. Here's what HGTV had to say about their pick;
"The site of two major battles during the War of 1812 and a host of other violent events over the years, this picturesque island is actually a hotbed of paranormal activity. One notably haunted spot is the Drowning Pool, where a witch hunt was conducted in the 1700s and early 1800s. Seven women who were accused of being witches were thrown into the water with rocks tied to their feet; if they sank, they were deemed innocent. Other spooky spots include the Grand Hotel (said to be haunted by an "evil entity" with glowing red eyes) and Mission Point Resort (reportedly haunted by a young college student who committed suicide)".
It's easy to be fooled by the island's postcard-worthy beauty during the day. When the sun sets and the moon rises, Mackinac Island transforms into a place where the paranormal and the real world collide. So be warned, once you step foot on its haunted shores, you may never look at a serene island the same way again.
