One website claims that this place is the most haunted in the state of Indiana. Do you agree?

This is the best time of year for a good scare. Haunted attractions are open everywhere. Perhaps you have already visited some. There's not a lack of haunted houses here in  Indiana. In fact, there are so many that you might not have been to the one with the best scares. Of course, these haunted houses aren't actually haunted. As you know, they are full of actors dressed up with the intent to scare you. If you really want to get scared, you might want to visit an actual haunted house with unexplainable noises, voices, and apparitions.

Now, there are a lot of haunted places throughout the state. Recently, we've discovered the most haunted house in Indiana, the most haunted restaurant in Indiana, the creepiest haunted library in Indiana, and the urban legend of a haunted cemetery found in Indiana. But what is the absolute most haunted place in the whole state? Well, according to one website, it's none of the places above.

The Most Haunted Place in Indiana

The website, Insider, examined local legends and historic sites to determine the most haunted locations in every state, with many having reported ghost sightings, strange occurrences, or bloody histories. The place they chose from Indiana is a prime example of a place with quite the history that would lead to several hauntings. That is the Indiana Medical History Museum in Indianapolis.

Here's what Insider said:

<p>The Indiana Medical History Museum is located in the oldest surviving pathology building in the country. It is also said to be haunted by the spirits of former patients of Central State Hospital.</p><p>The museum, located in Indianapolis, is home to recreations of amphitheaters and laboratories that were once used by the hospital, which treated a variety of different mental-health-related illnesses from 1848 until the late 1990s.</p>

The video below gives a little background on the history of the museum as well as several reports of its hauntings.

An old mental health hospital? Yeah, that's got haunted written all over it. However, I can't say that I have been there in person to see for myself. If you've visited this place and have experienced some paranormal activity while there, I'd love to hear about it!
