The Superstition Mountains are among the many supposedly haunted places in Arizona

Arizonans can take pride in knowing their state is rich in history. Arizonans with a propensity for all things creepy can take pride in knowing that many of the history-rich spots around the state are also believed to be haunted. Here are a few places around the Copper State that might give you a spook next time you visit.

Hassyampa Inn
Legend has it that in 1927 Faith Summers, a recently wed young woman, checked into the Prescott hotel with her husband. During their stay, her husband left for cigarettes and never came back. After three days of waiting, Faith took her own life. She now roams the halls of the hotel moaning, crying, and mourning her lost marriage.

Some staff members have said they can feel Faith's presence when working in the kitchen, and when she arrives the burners on the stove will inexplicably extinguish. Hotel guests have reported seeing Faith in their rooms, crying at the end of the bed before vanishing completely.

You can read about the more reports of encounters on the Hassyampa Inn website.

Palo Verde East at ASU Tempe
It is rumored that a girl committed suicide in room 605 on the sixth floor of Palo Verde East, an ASU dormitory building in Tempe. Though a quick search will turn up no news stories on the event, many students throughout the years have reported seeing the girl throughout the building.

While accounts vary, it seems the girl either moans on the second floor, shrieks on the fourth floor, or makes a combination of those noises while wandering the sixth floor in a white gown.

There are others, too but a fun list! The Superstitions may be haunted but it also has this mystical/magical feel about it as well esp. on any given Arizona sunset!
