Real Haunted House

Fort Mifflin

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
By Lisa

Known as the “Fort that Saved America,” during the Revolutionary War, Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia was built in 1771.  It was the site of the largest bombardment in North America at the time and is still intact to this day, which means it has some pretty chilling ghostly tales.

One tale suggests the screaming of a woman, Elizabeth Pratt, around where the Officer’s Quarters is located.  The frequency and pitch of the screams have even had the Philadelphia Police Department come out to the scene, only to find it vacant.  Other spooky tales include a faceless man wandering around the fort, a “lamplighter” walking around and voices of children and dogs.
