Madame Sherri’s made our list of Nature Reclaimed Spots in NH, but did you know it’s also considered haunted. Madame Sherri was an eccentric Broadway costume designer in the mid-1900s. Known for her exotic parties and pet monkey, she built a “castle” in the middle of the forest in Chesterfield, NH. The castle was destroyed by fire in the 1960s and only the staircase remains. The Madame has reportedly been seen descending the staircase and vanishing at the bottom. Regardless of whether you see a ghost or not, with the fall leaves and ruined arches it makes a spooky backdrop for great Halloween photos.

Gilson Road Cemetery

Nashua, New Hampshire

Cemeteries can be one of the spookiest places around, and Gilson Road Cemetery in Nashua is said to be one of the most haunted places in the state. Ghostly voices and apparitions have been seen, as well as mysterious lights on gravestones.

Monson Center

Abandoned in 1770, the town of Monson Center is a true ghost town. It is a favorite destination for ghost hunters with crumbling walls and old building foundations. If you do not see a ghost, you might spot a blue heron or beaver. There are observation benches by a large beaver pond to relax and enjoy nature. Learn more about Monson Center at the forest society website.

Omni Mount Washington Resort

Formerly known simply as the Mount Washington Hotel, Omni Mount Washington Resort is a great spot if you are looking for a little relaxation with your haunting. Built in 1902 by Joseph Stickney, his wife, Carolyn supposedly still roams the halls. Her private suite was Room 314, and guests have reported seeing a woman matching her description standing on the balcony or traveling down the hotel stairs. It is a favorite spot for ghost hunters and investigators of the paranormal to visit. Learn more about Omni Mount Washington Resort on their website!
