American Ghost Stories has hand-picked ghost stories from around America to share with you. We feature stories from the backwoods of Louisiana to the Urban sprawl of New York City.

The stories we have found have all been researched and verified by locals of each area to make sure they are as accurate as possible. That being said, beware.. the History of America from this point of view is dense and dark; some readers may not be comfortable with some of the stories found here.

If you are interested in submitting your own ghost story or leaving feedback for an existing story, feel free to contact us and share your thoughts.


  1. Hi there

    I am a freelance writer and regular visitor to your site.

    In between working on my first novel, I developed an interest in writing ghost stories after becoming involved in a number of cultural variety nights that invited contributions around specific topics (ghosts, the undead, hallowe’en, etc). For these, I developed short stories supported by songs and at the events I gave a reading and performed the songs with my band, Lucien’s Ghost.

    Since, I have been developing a number of spookier stories, some based upon reported events. I note that you are interested in hearing from freelance writers and wondered whether you would be interested in receiving some work from me. Initially, I have one story set in New York that was based around some personal experiences during student days.

    I’d appreciate if you could get back to me and let me know how to submit work, if you are interested.

    Kind regards, Mike
