Five Haunted Places in Arizona










Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.

George Washington Carver


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.

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.

London Bridge (Lake Havasu)
The London Bridge, originally constructed in 1831 in England, was literally falling down and sinking into the Thames River when it had to be dismantled in 1967. It was then sold to Lake Havasu City, where it was reconstructed and has stood since 1971.

Havasu residents will tell you that the bridge, constructed with many bricks from the original, brought British ghosts along with it when it came to Arizona.

People have reported seeing ghosts strolling across the bridge dressed in old English attire. Eerier still, bridge frequenters have reportedly felt physical contact from these ethereal entities in the form of a bump or a brush on the arm.

Yuma Territorial Prison
The prison opened its doors in 1876 and accepted the first prisoners on July 1 of that year. In the following 33 years, the prison housed 3,069 prisoners. More than 100 prisoners died while serving their sentences at Yuma Territorial Prison, many from disease.

In 1909, the last prisoner left for another institution, the Arizona State Prison Complex (also considered haunted by some), and the building was used for other purposes including schooling and shelter for the homeless during the Great Depression. Today, it is a park that patrons can visit to see the way the prison operated. Visitors have reported seeing ghosts roaming the halls, while others say they’ve heard long-dead prisoners moaning from their cells as they pass by.

Superstition Mountains
If you’ve ever heard the legend of the Lost Dutchman‘s Mine, in which a miner discovers a fortune of gold while out all on his own, you probably already know that the Superstition Mountains are considered haunted.

According to local lore, the mine is believed to be hidden somewhere within the mountains. Many an adventurer has sought after it, and some never return from the frightening foray. Some say the Apache Thunder God watches over the mountains. Others who have visited report seeing strange lights or shadows while braving the terrain.
