This time of year everyone loves a good ghost story. So, here's a unique one from Lake Placid that is based on the true story of a woman disappearing in the lake in 1933, and her amazingly preserved body recovered by divers 30 years later.
Every year around Halloween the ghosts of the New York Capitol Building are put on display for all to see...or actually just hear about. As far as I know, nobody has actually seen one of the ghosts on a haunted tour of the New York Capitol.
The Capital Region has some pretty haunted places. Some are haunted because they're historical and some are because something terrible happened there. In the story of this famous Schenectady Stockade ghost, it's both.
I'm forever a skeptic when it comes to paranormal activity. That doesn't mean I don't believe in it, I just need to experience it for myself in order to shred any doubts. With that being said, I am always intrigued when a story about a ghost goes viral. I always want to try and rule out the possibility of a ghost with some rational thinking or logic. I'll admit, I have no clue what the heck is
I've been told you have to be open to the unknown for you to experience any paranormal activity. But based on stories that have come from the Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs, whether you believe or not, things happen.
That's what brought SyFy's "Ghost Hunters" to the Capital Region in 2010 for the sixth season of their creepy show.
