Long Island, NY has enough eerie tales and historic tragedies to send tingles down your spine with dozens of locations believed to be haunted – from centuries-old lighthouses, to bars, mansions and theaters, to ancient Native American burial grounds, lakes, and Revolutionary War battlegrounds.

As Halloween nears, it’s no surprise that these unique sites attract visitors from across the country – especially those that offer paranormal tours. So check out our list of the most haunted places on Long Island, all accessible with help of the Long Island Rail Road, where proprietors actually welcome visitors… and hopefully, the ghosts do too.

A note on the Kings Park Psychiatric Center & Amityville Horror House: While both of these iconic Long Island landmarks are supposedly haunted, they are excluded from our list because visitors are prohibited to trespass on these properties.

1. Camp Hero in Montauk

In the 1650s, the Montaukett Indians were ambushed by a warring tribe near the Montauk Plaza; the same spot where Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders were quarantined after the Spanish-American War. Native American spirits supposedly still wander here, while soldiers snatched away by yellow fever still seek respite. And at  Camp Hero, Montauk , rumor has it that not only is the former air force base which now serves as Camp Hero State Park (and the inspiration behind  Stranger Things ) haunted, but the entire town of Montauk is filled with hotspots of spooky happenings. It is said that Camp Hero is haunted by non-human spirits, creatures, and the unsettling history of all that took place here.

2. Fire Island Lighthouse

fire-island-lighthouse-1024x813

The original Fire Island Lighthouse was constructed in 1826 and was replaced by the current lighthouse which was built in 1858. It is believed that the caretaker of the  Fire Island Lighthouse  who lived there before the resurrection was distraught over the illness of his child. After waiting days for a doctor to show up at the isolated lighthouse, the child tragically passed away. Grieving after the loss, the caretaker sadly hung himself at the lighthouse and it is said that his spirit still roams the lonely rooms today.

3. Country House Restaurant in Stony Brook Village

Country House Restaurant

Originally built as a farmhouse in 1710, the Stony Brook Village  Country House Restaurant  is known for its old-school charm nestled inside a historic colonial house. But did you know the Revolutionary War-era house is haunted? Supposedly, Country House is haunted by the spirit of a woman named Annette Williamson who was murdered after she welcomed British soldiers into her family home during the Revolutionary War. Restaurant visitors say that they hear her cries, see light bulbs flashing, and hear footsteps running and walking.

4. Raynham Hall in Oyster Bay

Raynham Hall

This mid-18th-century Oyster Bay home was owned by the Townsend family and confiscated by the British during the Revolutionary War.  Raynham Hall  is said to be haunted by Sally Townsend who received a valentine from the British Lieutenant Colonel Simcoe occupying her family’s home. Sally reported Simcoe and another British soldier, Major Andre, to her brother who was a part of George Washington’s spy ring. Andre was then captured and executed for conspiracy, and the hall is now a museum that you can visit today (with ghost tours!).

5. Katie’s of Smithtown

Katie's

Staff and customers alike have been reporting paranormal activity at Katie’s bar for many years. Many say the property is primarily haunted by Charlie Klein, a former bootlegger and bartender from the 1920s Prohibition Era who took his own life. Some of the most common claims include seeing Charlie’s apparition, glasses being knocked off of shelves, doors swinging open, unexplained noises and more.

Charlie’s not alone however, as there are said to be several different spirits hanging around Katie’s. In 1909, a hotel that once stood in the same spot burned to the ground killing one person who got trapped in the basement. There are also claims that one of the spirits is a 16th century murderer.

6. Old Bethpage Village Restoration

Old Bethpage Village Restoration

Urban legend goes that the  Old Bethpage Village Restoration  is haunted by a small boy that was shut away in the Conklin house and that on occasion, visitors hear loud bangs in the house. Several people have also claimed to see a woman standing at the top of the stairs. Other houses haunted by ghosts in the village include the Schenck Dutch Farmhouse, the reception center, the Hewlett House, the Noon Inn, the Layton Store, and the Williams House.

7. Lake Ronkonkoma’s Lady of the Lake

One of the area’s most serene spots for canoeing and Long Island’s largest freshwater lake is also home to the “Lady of the Lake.”  Lake Ronkonkoma’s  infamous Native American princess was in love with a member of her tribe who was murdered by a settler on the eve of their wedding. Other legends say she was in love with a settler, but her father forbade the match. According to the local lore, the princess drowned herself in the middle of the lake...although her body was never found. Now, the phantom lady of the lake can sometimes be seen on the shore, mourning her love. It’s rumored that she is responsible for several drownings at the lake over the past few centuries.

8. The Gateway Playhouse in Bellport

Gateway Playhouse

Constructed in 1827, the  Gateway Playhouse  is one of the oldest active theaters on Long Island. Allegedly in the late 1800s, a murder took place at the theater, and employees say that they still hear the sounds of the moaning victim. A man wearing a top hat has appeared in the sound booth, and there have been reports of flickering lights and random tapping or knocking sounds.

9. Southampton History Museum’s Rogers Mansion and Halsey House Ghost Tours

Made up of a dozen historical buildings, the  Southampton History Museum  has two of the most haunted places on Long Island: the Rogers Mansion and the Halsey House. The Rogers Mansion was owned by the Rogers family from 1650 to 1889 and after two additional owners, the Village of Southampton purchased it in 1932. The Halsey House was built in the 1680s by Thomas Halsey Jr., the son of pioneer Thomas Halsey Sr.

At both historical houses, guests and employees have documented unexplained footsteps, items being thrown across the basement, and shadowy figures following people through the house. The activity is so widespread and regular that  Long Island Paranormal Investigators  have set up a permanent residency here offering ghost tours once a month throughout the year.

10. Stony Brook Village Walking Ghost Tour

Stony Brook Village

Presented by the Ward Melville Heritage Organization, Stony Brook Village Center has a ghost tour called,  “Secrets & Spirits”  on October 27 and 28 where participants can search for spirits through time with new stories of local hauntings along Stony Brook’s coastal community. Ghost stories include the Long Island witch trials and the woman in white at the Stony Brook Grist Mill.

11. The Wickham Farmhouse in Cutchogue

Wickham Farmhouse

The Wickham Farmhouse  murders were one of the most horrifying events to take place on the East End. In 1854, James and Frances Wickham, along with their 14-year-old servant boy, were axe-murdered in their bedrooms by a farmhand named Nicholas Behan. In 1988, Anne and John Wickham awoke to a dark figure standing over their bed 124 years after the murder, so they sealed the room and have not entered since. Some say that you can still hear the footsteps of Nicholas Behan coming from the second-floor hall.

12. Sagtikos Manor in Bay Shore

The historic  Sagtikos Manor  was occupied by the British during the Revolutionary War and once hosted George Washington himself in 1790. The last owner of the manor died in the early 1900s, and there have been reports of people seeing turning doorknobs, strange figures, and wispy moving mists in the family cemetery located on the grounds. The most notable paranormal activity is the ghost of a Native American princess who was believed to have died on the grounds of the manor.

Not far from Southampton’s Halsey House, atop a hill in the center of the  Stony Brook University Southampton campus , sits a windmill. Built in 1713, the windmill is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl. The lore goes that the owner of the property in the 19 th  century let his daughter play in the windmill, only she fell down the steps, broke her neck, and died. According to Stony Brook University students, the face of a small girl looking out from the windmill’s windows can often be seen as they pass by.

Mount Misery Road is a short road located within the  West Hills County Park  in Huntington. It has a reputation of being one of the most haunted roads in the world. The stories surrounding the hauntings date back to the Native American tribes who lived in the area and considered it cursed and off-limits. They spoke of strange lights, livestock disappearing, and mysterious creatures in the woods. Other legends speak of a hospital that burnt down in the 1700s with patients and staff trapped inside.

17. Three Village Historical Society Spirits Tour

Most Haunted Places On Long island, NY

Long Island was originally populated by Native American Indians before being settled by European immigrants during the 1600s. It is an area that is rich in its history and which is packed full of all manner of myths, legends and ancient folklore.

There is a little bit of everything here from sacred Native American burial grounds to sites significant to the Revolutionary War, plus a sprinkling of Gatsby style mansions and estates for good measure.

That sounds like the perfect recipe for some hauntings if you ask us!

Let’s take a look at some of the most haunted places in Long Island, NY:

9 - The Amityville House, Amityville

The Amityville House, Amityville

How could we have a list of the most haunted places in Long Island without mentioning the most famous allegedly haunted house of all!

Everyone knows the story of The Amityville House. In 1974, Ronald DeFeo murdered his entire family in the house and there were many who believed that it was evil spirits in the house who drove him to it.

A year later, George and Kathy Lutz moved in and their tales of the paranormal activity spawned a book and then a successful horror movie franchise.

It was later said to be a hoax, but there are still many who believe that there is at least some truth in their story – after all, such brutal murder has to have left some kind of a mark, right?

8 - Winfield Hall, Glen Cove

Winfield Hall, Glen Cove

According to local legend, Winfield Hall , the former mansion belonging to Frank Winfield Woolworth, has a colorful history that includes plenty of occult activity!

It has also seen its fair share of death. Frank Winfield Woolworth passed away in 1917, just two years after the house was built. His daughter Edna then committed suicide in the house a few years later.

In the 1960s and 1970s, Winfield Hall served as the home of Grace Downs Model and Air Career School and many of the students there reported that Edna’s former bedroom always remained locked and that they could hear sounds of furniture moving coming from inside even although nobody was in there!

7 - Sagtikos Manor, Bay Shore

Sagtikos Manor, Bay Shore

Sagtikos Manor is one of the most historic buildings that Long Island has to offer and it once played host to President George Washington himself. It is also believed to be haunted.

Witnesses have described seeing the ghost of a Native American Indian in the loft of the property on a number of different occasions.

There have also been other reports of shadowy figures standing on the front porch and of doorknobs turning and/or jiggling by themselves.

Another of the popular stories linked to Sagtikos Manor is that in the 1700s an Indian Princess believed to have live on what are now the grounds of the manor was attempting to rescue settlers from Fire Island when a storm came in.

She made several successful crossings in her canoe before disappearing.

She was never found, but witnesses have said that the princess and some of the men that she rescued can be seen on the shore at night.

6 - Reid Ice Cream Grounds, Blue Point

The ghost story linked to Reid Ice Cream Grounds in Blue Point is an incredibly tragic one. It concerns a young woman who was found murdered here in 1966.

The 20 year old go-go dancer and part-time bank teller was found in a sump at Reid Ice Cream Grounds with her hands and feet bound and her throat cut.

Many witnesses have said that the girl’s spirit is still linger there where her body was found.

It is common to hear reports of a young woman walking around the grounds of the abandoned ice cream factory and warehouse.

There are also reports of people hearing screaming and crying in the area.

This young woman was not the only death in the area. Apparently a little boy also died here in the 1970s when he broke into the old factory to play and ended up falling to his death while climbing up the old machinery.

It is his ghost that is said to be responsible for the disembodied laughing and singing that can often be heard along with the sound of running footsteps.

5 - Morgan Hall, Glen Cove

Morgan Hall was built in 1910 by financial tycoon J.P. Morgan and it is now thought to be one of the most haunted places in Long Island. It has been claimed that Morgan Hall is haunted by the spirit of J.P. Morgan’s young daughter, Alice, who is thought to have died in the mansion after contracting Yellow Fever.

After serving as the Morgan residence, the mansion spent some time as a Russian Embassy before being transformed into a Catholic school and convent in the 1960s.

Through it all, poor Alice Morgan has wandered the building…

Witnesses who have encountered Alice say that she is usually dressed in a long black gown and that her most visited spot is the attic, although she is also seen walking up and down the mansion’s many corridors with some degree of regularity.

4 - Katie’s, Smithtown

Katie’s, Smithtown

Katie’s Bar in Smithtown has become somewhat notorious for being one of the most haunted buildings in Long Island! It s said to be haunted by former bootlegger Charlie Klein who is approximately 115 years old, missing a few limbs and has a tendency to knock glasses off of the shelves behind the bar!

Staff and customers alike have been reporting paranormal activity at Katie’s for many years now.

Some of the most common claims include seeing Charlie’s apparition, glasses being knocked off of shelves by unseen hands, doors swinging open and closed, unexplained noises and more!

Charlie is by far the most friendly one of the resident spooks, but there are said to be several different spirits hanging around. These are probably all linked to the very colorful history that Katie’s Bar boasts!

In 1909, a hotel that once stood in the same spot burned to the ground killing one person who got trapped in the basement.

There are also claims that one of the spirits is a 16th century murderer. As for Charlie, many believe that he was a bootlegger and a bartender in the 1920s Prohibition Era and that he took his own life.

3 - Fire Island Lighthouse, Fire Island

Fire Island Lighthouse, Fire Island

The original Fire Island Lighthouse was built in 1826 and stood 74 feet high. However, it was replaced in 1858 by the current lighthouse which happens to be considered one of the most haunted locations in Long Island.

The lighthouse is believed to be haunted by the spirit of a curator who committed suicide in the new lighthouse after his little girl died during the winter months when it was being constructed.

These days there are reports of phantom footsteps climbing the lighthouse stairs, crazed laughter and even the shadow of a man carrying a rope.

2 - Raynham Hall, Oyster Bay

Raynham Hall, Oyster Bay

Raynham Hall in the Oyster Bay area of Long Island takes its name from Raynham Hall in Norflok, England, a building which is very famous for being haunted by ‘The Brown Lady’! However, this Raynham Hall has its very own group of spirits to boast about!

Built in the middle of the 18th Century, Raynham Hall served as the home of the Townsend Family, but was confiscated during the Revolutionary War and used as the headquarters of the Queen’s Rangers who were led by one Lieutenant Colonel John Graves Simcoe.

He fell in love with Sally Townsend while there which is how she came to overheard him discussing a plot involving Benedict arnold with the British Major John Andre.

Sally told her brother of the plot and as a result Andre was hanged for treason.

Now Andre’s spirit remains tied to Raynham Hall as are the spirits of Simcoe and Sally Townsend making Raynham Hall one of the most haunted houses in Long Island!

1 - Kings Park Psychiatric Center, Kings Park

Kings Park Psychiatric Center, Kings Park

Kings Park Psychiatric Center was established back in 1885 and sits on around 800 acres of land.

At its peak, the institution was home to around 9000 patients who were housed in over 150 different buildings across the property.

Over time, Kings Park Psychiatric Center became a more or less self sufficient community with its own library, firehouse, morgue, cemetery and farm. However, like so many other establishments of this nature Kings Park Psychiatric Center was dogged by rumours of inhumane treatment and torture.

It is known that some of the more questionable treatments here included shock therapy, prefrontal lobotomies and insulin shock therapy – not to mention the so called treatments that nobody would admit to which amounted to little more than torture and abuse.

Today, Kings Park Psychiatric Center is one of the most haunted hospitals in the state. The compound has gradually fallen into a state of disrepair, but it still echoes with the screams and cries of former patients who still roam this place in spirit.

Visitors have also reported banging sounds, clanging, disembodied voices and even shadow figures.

The most active areas in terms of paranormal activity are probably the underground tunnels!

The 5 Most Haunted Places on Long Island, New York

Long Island, New York , has its fair share of haunted places, from centuries-old houses to abandoned buildings. According to the  Long Island Paranormal Investigators (LIPI) , the scariest ones include an old fort and a psychiatric center.

Whether you believe ghost stories or think they're just urban legends, visit any of these spooky spots on Long Island and you're sure to get chills down your spine.

Fire Island Lighthouse

The stately  Fire Island Lighthouse  dates back to the 1800s and is a familiar landmark on the barrier island where it stands 167 feet above sea level and can be seen more than 20 miles away. On the  National Register of Historic Places  since 1974, the decommissioned lighthouse is open to visitors, and those in good physical shape can walk the 157 steep steps and two small ladders for a view from the top of New York's tallest lighthouse. But beware: Tales of shadowy figures, ghostly laughs, otherworldly banging noises, and legends of hefty doors opening and closing by themselves surround the Fire Island Lighthouse.

One of the most famous former residents of West Hills was Walt Whitman, who lived in the area as a young boy with his family. Mt. Misery starts at the intersection of Broad Hollow Road/Route 110 and Sweet Hollow Road and ends near Jericho Turnpike. There have been reports of screams in the night from that location, and there's a story from 1967 about an elderly woman who lived nearby that says she received visits from strange people that resembled Native Americans. They supposedly told the woman that the land her house rested on belonged to them.

Raynham Hall

Dating back to the 1700s, this historic house in  Oyster Bay  was originally built by a well-to-do merchant and is now a museum open to the public. Many years ago, a man was hired to take care of the grounds and sleep in the house. After his first night there, he was asked how he slept. He answered that it was quiet, but that the "people upstairs" made quite a racket. Note to fans of ghost stories: no one lived upstairs. Others talk about visitations by a young bride—supposedly the ghost of a former resident who was abandoned by her lover while waiting for him at the altar.

Reid's Ice Cream Factory

Reid's Ice Cream Factory in Blue Point was abandoned in the 1920s and then demolished in 2003. From reports of the ghostly screams of a murdered woman to the otherworldly giggles of a departed boy, legends swirled around the long-abandoned Reid's Ice Cream Factory in Suffolk County. Houses were later built on the former factory property, but are the ghosts still there?

Kings Park Psychiatric Center

According to LIPI, the Kings Park Psychiatric Center is one of the 10 most haunted places on Long Island. Passersby have heard screams and other ghostly noises from the long-abandoned building in Suffolk County. LIPI points out that it is illegal to enter the buildings and access to the grounds is limited.

Kings Park Psychiatric Center (pictured above) West Fourth Street, Kings Park, NY 11754 Not open to the public For many years, Long Islanders have broken into this historic location to see the eerie condemned facilities. The Psych Center housed over 9,000 patients at its height, who were subjected to overcrowding and deplorable conditions, as well as dramatic procedures such as lobotomies and electro-shock therapy. From inside and outside the many buildings, people have reported yells and screams of deceased patients, and some say they can see ghosts in the windows. Although you cannot go into the buildings, you can drive through the grounds for a quick peek. The grounds are monitored by the police.

Lake Ronkonkoma Lake Shore Road, Lake Ronkonkoma, NY 11779 Open to the public According to legend, a Native American woman fell in love with a European colonist and was unable to be with him, either because her father, the Chief forbid it, he was killed by colonists, or he was killed by natives. As a result, the woman was distraught and drowned herself in the lake.  Since then, it is said that at least one person drowns in the lake each year, and the victims are typically male. It is also said that in the winter, ghosts of people in older-styled clothing can be seen ice skating on the lake.

Some people can feel his presence or even a man running on the 5th lane of the track. Some say they also have seen a glowing object in the northeast corner of the track.   Commack Multiplex Cinemas 160 Commack Road, Commack, NY 11725 Not open to the public What can be so scary about a movie theater? Unless, of course, you are going to see a scary movie. Well, some people say they have seen figures and shadows going across the movie screen. Even some employees report lockers being open and doors mysteriously opening. Although the theater is now gone, many still believe that ghosts still haunt that area.   Country House Restaurant 1175 Country House, Stony Brook, NY 11790 631-751-3332 Open to the public This house has a pre-revolutionary story behind it. It is said to be haunted by Annette Williamson, the daughter of a former owner. She had allowed British soldiers to stay in the home and was believed to be a spy. She was hung on the second story rafters and her spirit haunts the kitchen and stairways. Visitors say they can hear her cries and light bulbs flicker. The restaurant also has a “Ghost Bar” where you can view pictures of Annette Williamson.   Edgewood State Hospital Commack Road, Deer Park, NY 11729 Not open to the public Although mostly demolished hospital, it is believed that the spirits of staff and patients still roam the woods where the hospital used to be. Some have even reported screams being heard and misty figures in the woods.   Fire Island Lighthouse Robert Moses Causeway, Bay Shore, NY 11706 631-321-7028 Open to the public This landmark is said to be haunted by a caretaker who hanged himself in the original lighthouse after his daughter grew ill and died before doctors could reach her. People say they have seen his figure wandering around the lighthouse, they have seen windows open and close on their own, and the doors, although heavy, have reportedly been spotted opening and closing on their own.   Fort Hill Cemetery The Plaza, Montauk, NY 11954 Open to the public Cemeteries always seem to be a place where many believe paranormal activity takes place, but this one is specially haunted by the Montaukette Indians who lived in the area. There is a large rock on the grounds that was once considered the Council Rock. Some say you can hear the drums of the Montaukettes and their chief whose spirits are still in that cemetery. Just outside the cemetery is where Teddy Roosevelt’s rough riders died of disease, and many claim that their spirits haunt the grounds as well.   Fort Slongo Battlefield 10 Fort Salonga Road, Fort Salonga, NY 11768 Not open to the public In October of 1741 in the midst of the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Fort Slongo broke out as the American soldiers attempted to take the fort from the British. It only took a matter of minutes before the American soldiers claimed Fort Slongo, now called Fort Salonga. Many claim to hear gunshots and other battle noises taking place early in the morning.   Pizza Hut in Centereach 2082 Middle Country Road, Centereach, NY 11720 631-981-3434 Open to the public Interested in meeting a ghost while getting a slice of pizza with a ghost? No? Well, don’t go to the bathroom at this Pizza Hut where it is said that someone died there. Some say they can hear whispers and employees claim pots and pans fall off the shelves on their own.   Sweet Hollow Road Huntington, NY 11743 Open to the public Although no town records show it, there are many legends behind the haunted overpass on Sweet Hollow Road. One legend is that a school bus full of children was traveling on the Northern State overpass bridge above Sweet Hollow Road on a snowy day, and the driver lost control and skidded off the bridge, killing everyone on the bus. According to the story, if you park your car under the bridge and put it in neutral, the ghosts of the children will push your car forward.

Another story says that three boys committed suicide by hanging themselves off the Northern State Parkway overpass bridge and on some nights you can see shadows. There is also a version of the Mary’s Grave story surrounding the sight, in which a woman named Mary was having a fight with her boyfriend in the car and was either pushed out or jumped out, and was hit by oncoming traffic. People claim to see the ghost of a woman in a white dress haunting the road, and they say she will jump in front of you when you pass.

A further story around this road is that a police officer was shot when he pulled over a driver. It is said that if you are driving on the road, you might get pulled over by a cop who will just let you go, but as he walks away you will see the back of his head blown out from the shotgun that killed him.   Old Bethpage Village Restoration 1303 Round Swamp Road, Old Bethpage, NY 11804 516-572-8400 Open to the public With homes ranging in ages from pre-Civil War, Old Bethpage Village Restoration will not only teach you about early Long Island living, but you might see a ghost if you look carefully. People have seen a woman walking around the second floor of the Conklin House in period dress who is not an actor working for the Village Restoration.

The Hewlett House is also shrouded in mystery, as a worker reported feeling a hand on her shoulder, but no one was there, and that a security guard reported hearing strange voices coming from the basement. The Williams House also seems to be a hotbed of paranormal activity, where doors and windows slam shut on their own, objects move on their own, and a small voice once told a worker who picked up a toy teacup to “put my teacup down.”   Katie’s of Smithtown 145 West Main Street, Smithtown, NY 11787 631-360-8556 Open to the public Katie’s is a popular bar in Smithtown and home to a ghost named Charlie, who is said to have been a bartender and bootlegger during the 1920s. After committing suicide, he is said to frequently visit the bar and many patrons have felt or seen him. Other guests in 19th century dress have appeared in the bar, and the figure of a woman has been seen walking up and down the bar and down the basement stairs.

Women have reported toilet seats jumping open and making banging sounds when no one else is in the bathroom, and footsteps have also been heard coming from the basement when it is unoccupied. Glasses have also been known to fly off the bar and tables.   Morgan Hall Route 107, Glen Cove, NY 11742 Not open to the public This former estate of J.P. Morgan is said to be haunted by his daughter, Alice, who died to typhoid fever in the mansion. Many claim to have seen her walking the corridors or the attic in a long black dress.   Port Jefferson Ferry 102 West Broadway, Port Jefferson, NY 11717 1-888-44FERRY Open to the public It has been reported by many that a ghost haunts the ferries as they travel the sound. Many riders have seen the ghost of a former captain who wears a weathered uniform.   Camp Hero 1898 Montauk Highway, Montauk, NY 11954 631-668-3781 Open to the public On this secretive military base, it is believed that the government conducted secret experiments referred to as “The Montauk Project,” which included studies on UFOs and the testing of time travel. It is said two boys were kidnapped and experimented on, and that one was successful in opening a door to the fourth dimension, and who let out a creature from this dimension that still resides in underground containment below the camp.   Hanging Tree Grove Avenue, Patchogue, NY 11772 Open to the public The Hanging Tree is located in Patchogue off Grove Avenue near the Swan River. Stories say that this spot was used back in colonial times as a place to hang accused witches, but others say that others have used the tree to hang themselves. Visitors have seen moving shadows and strange lights, and have felt very hot or cold spots near the tree. Paranormal investigators have been pushed and had equipment knocked from their hands. Investigators also say that EVPs (electronic voice phenomenon) have been found here. There have also been reports of a ghostly woman in a white dress. Raynham Hall 20 West Main Street, Oyster Bay, NY 11771 516-922-6808 Open to the public Before this twenty room house was an accredited museum, it was used in the American Revolution by the Townsend family. During the Revolution it was used to quarter British soldiers, including Major John Andre, who attempted to bribe Benedict Arnold to surrender his troops only to have the plot foiled by Townsend’s daughter, who overheard his discussion and had it reported to General George Washington.

The ghost of Andre has been seen wandering the house, along with the ghost of a woman who was quartered by an officer who was her lover. Many museum employees and visitors claim to smell apple pie and cinnamon wafting through the house, which is considered to be a welcome from the lady in the kitchen. Reid’s Ice Cream Factory Blue Point, NY Not open to the public This ice cream factory closed down in the 1920s and was later demolished in 2003. There are two central stories regarding this location. In the more than 80 years that it was abandoned, it is said that a young boy was playing on the property and was climbing on machinery when he fell to his death.

It is said you can hear a young boy running around, and doors would regularly open, close, and lock themselves. Another legend is that a young woman went to the factory with her suitor in the 50s, as it was then a hideaway for couples seeking intimacy. It is told that either the woman refused the suitor’s advances and was killed, or the two were followed by a man who then murdered both of them.  People have reported hearing sounds of a woman screaming and crying. Wickham Farmhouse 28700 Main Road, Cutchogue, NY 11935 631-734-7122 Open to the public In 1854 the Wickham farmhouse in Cutchogue was the site of a gruesome axe murder where Mr. and Mrs. Wickham were killed in their own home by a former farmhand. The farmhand was caught days later and hung in Riverhead in front of an angry mob of onlookers. In 1988, the later owners, Anne and John Wickham, awoke to a dark figure standing over their bed in the middle of the night. After that incident the bedroom was sealed and hasn’t been opened since. Some say you can hear the footsteps of the farmhand coming from the second floor.   Oheka Castle 135 Westgate Drive, Huntington, NY 11743 631-659-1400 Open to the public This 126-room, 109,000 square foot mansion in Huntington was built in the 1900s by wealthy banker Otto Herman Kahn. Supposedly the mansion has secret tunnels, passageways, and rooms, as well as an area in the basement with bars resembling a cage. People have claimed to see shadowy figures lurking around the property and when people have gone to take a photo of Otto Kahn’s portrait, their cameras have gone off without them touching the button. Watery footprints have also appeared in the pool room late at night after the pool has closed.

Haunted long island: 8 sites to visit by halloween, long island is supposedly home to a number of haunted sites. and patch has compiled a list of them to visit..

Alessia Grunberger's profile picture

Alessia Grunberger , Patch Staff

LONG ISLAND — Spooky season is upon us, but do you have the guts to explore Long Island's creepy past?

Well, if you're game for more than just costume parties and trick-or-treating, you're in luck. Long Island is supposedly home to a number of haunted sites. And Patch has compiled a list of them, which can be found below.

Just an FYI: don't expect to find Bayville Scream Park, Spooky Fest, or other haunted attractions on this list. (If you're looking for those, check out Patch's 2021 Long Island Haunted House Guide ).

Find out what's happening in Port Washington with free, real-time updates from Patch.

Here, readers will learn about places where people have reported witnessing supernatural activity. But only the most intrepid will dare venture to these notorious sites.

The Hanging Tree

In Patchogue, off Grove Avenue and in the vicinity of Swan River, the Hanging Tree is said to be the site of suicides and Colonial-era witch trial executions.

For years, visitors have reported seeing strange lights and moving shadows (including a lady in white), experiencing unexplained temperature changes, and having their cellphones or other battery-powered electronics suddenly die.

That's some creepy stuff. Creepy enough that, in 2011, a movie was made about the Hanging Tree .

Lake Ronkonkoma

It's the largest — and perhaps best known — freshwater lake on Long Island. But if you ask locals to take a swim in Lake Ronkonkoma, many will refuse.

Legend has it that during the 1600s, a Native American princess named Tuskawanta fell in love with a White settler, whom her father forbade her to see. The settler, who went by the name of Hugh Birdsall, was banished from Lake Ronkonkoma , according to a 2018 New York Times article.

Distraught and heartbroken, Tuskawanta then spent the next seven years trying to send love letters across the lake, in hopes that Birdsall would find them. But she never received a reply. So one day, the princess rowed herself out to the middle of the lake and fatally stabbed herself.

Now known as the Lady of the Lake, Tuskawanta is said to drown at least one male every year to replace her lost lover.

Coincidentally, there have been multiple drownings at Lake Ronkonkoma over the years.

Again, we're not saying Tuskawanta — or any spirit, for that matter — is responsible for their deaths. But it is worth mentioning.

Amityville Horror House

Probably the most famous haunted site on Long Island is the Amityville Horror House.

In the early hours of Nov. 13, 1974, Ronald DeFeo, Jr., 23, murdered his entire family in their home on Ocean Avenue.

The notorious killer was eventually convicted on six counts of second-degree murder after he admitted to using a gun to kill his father, Ronald DeFeo Sr.; his mother, Louise; and his younger siblings John Matthew, Mark, Allison, and Dawn.

About a year after the killings, the Lutz family bought the Dutch-Colonial home at a drastically reduced price of $80,000. They fled their house 28 days later, claiming to be terrorized by evil spirits.

Multiple paranormal investigators were called to the home, including Ed and Lorraine Warren — a couple whose work inspired several Hollywood horror movies.

The site of the grisly mass murders also spawned a torrent of books, films, and documentaries, including the 1979 movie "The Amityville Horror."

Just keep in mind this home is not open to the public. It is a private residence. So for your sake, don't trespass or loiter.

Raynham Hall Museum

Oyster Bay's Raynham Hall Museum was once the home of Samuel Townsend, a spy for George Washington during the American Revolution. And like many people at the time, Townsend was forced to offer much of his residence to the Redcoats, including Major John André. The British intelligence officer was later hanged as a spy for attempting to assist American General Benedict Arnold's surrender of West Point.

It's believed that André's ghost still wanders Raynham Hall. But he is not alone, according to LIHauntedHouses.com .

The website says another officer allegedly quartered a lover in Townsend's home, and her room now feels unusually cold.

A third spirit, supposedly a woman in the kitchen, will sometimes welcome guests with the scent of cinnamon and apples baking. Mmmm...kind of like the sound of that.

Wickham Farmhouse

In 1854, a former farmhand murdered Mr. and Mrs. Wickham at their home in Cutchogue — sending shockwaves throughout the East End.

The murderer, who went by the name of Nicholas Bain, was caught days later by an angry mob and hung for his crime.

Fast forward to 1988, the farmhouse is now owned by Anne and John Wickham — who one night wake up and find a dark figure standing over their bed. It's not exactly clear who that person was — or whether the couple imagined it all together.

Regardless, after that frightening incident, the couple's bedroom was sealed. And, according to LongIsland.com, it hasn't been opened since.

The Wickham farmhouse has since been converted into a fruit farm. But some people swear they've heard footsteps coming from the second floor.

Swing by 28700 Main Rd. and see for yourself (and maybe buy some produce while you're at it).

Katie's in Smithtown

In 2013, the popular Travel Channel series "Ghost Adventures" rented out Katie's in Smithtown to search for evidence of the bar's famous ghosts and investigate new poltergeists.

"There's always activity here, but it changes from time to time," bar owner Brian Karppinen said. "Lately, we've been hearing voices of women and children, which is kind of new."

The Ghost Adventures Crew — publicly known as Zak, Nick, and Aaron — had a scout contact Karppinen after learning about Charlie Klein, a bootlegger and bartender in the 1920s. Klein died by suicide in 1933 in fear of going to jail after selling a drink to an IRS man, according to Karppinen's own research. But his spirit apparently still lives at the bar.

At this time of year, particularly close to Halloween, Karppinen says there tends to be an uptick in ghostly activity at Katie's.

Harbor Mist Restaurant

In the 1800s, this Cold Spring Harbor restaurant was an inn and that inn had a brothel, according to DiscoverLongIsland.com. Rumor has it that a local whaler had returned home to find his wife with a customer and killed them both.

Sometimes doors will open and close, lights will flicker, and the stereo will play. Yikes.

Fire Island Lighthouse

Some say that a caretaker who once lived here hung himself after his sick child died. Now his spirit apparently roams the lighthouse.

You can swing by the lighthouse today and admire all the beautiful views Fire Island has to offer. And who knows? Maybe the caretaker will join you.

Here's What To Expect At Long Island's Haunted House Of Hamburgers

Long Island's Haunted House of Hamburgers restaurant celebrates Halloween all year-round; here's what to expect while visiting!

  • The Haunted House of Hamburgers in Long Island is a Halloween-themed restaurant that celebrates the holiday all year round.
  • Owner Jordan Desner combined his love for Halloween and hamburgers to create the unique concept of the restaurant.
  • The menu offers a variety of spooky-themed food and drinks, with burgers being a highlight, along with a Little Haunters Menu for kids. The restaurant's interior is decorated with animatronics and ghoulish artwork to enhance the dining experience.

Things to do Halloween can often consist of visiting a haunted house or attending a festival but heading to a Halloween-themed bar or restaurant can also provide a fun night out.

For example, New York City's Halloween activities are plentiful, while Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" brings visitors to this village in Hudson Valley . Major fans of the holiday might want to consider heading to Long Island. Why? It’s because this coastal destination is home to a Halloween-themed restaurant dishing out both food and frights.

What To Know About The Haunted House Of Hamburgers

Located in Farmingdale, in Long Island's Nassau County, the Haunted House of Hamburgers honors Halloween on more than one day. In fact, this about 2,500-square-foot standalone restaurant celebrates the holiday 365 days a year.

The Haunted House of Hamburgers was opened by owner Jordan Desner in October 2022, based upon his lifelong obsession with all things Halloween. He added, ironically, that he was born on Friday the 13th.

Desner is also a big aficionado of hamburgers, so he decided to create a marriage of his two favorite things in opening this restaurant. He also made a lot of headlines with the debut of Haunted House of Hamburgers, being quoted in newspapers and having TV stations throughout Long Island come out to film.

In reaching out to ask Desner about Haunted House of Hamburgers, he replied that in wanting to open such a Halloween-themed place, he wanted to do something different.

“I love food, so I guess that it makes sense,” said Desner. "People love hamburgers. People love Halloween. It just made sense.”

What's On The Menu At Haunted House Of Hamburgers?

The lunch and dinner menu at the Haunted House of Hamburgers includes an assortment of food orders whose names perfectly fit with Halloween. Listed on the restaurant's website, choices involve common pub grub with chicken sandwiches, soups, flatbread pizzas, side dishes, and hot dogs.

Burgers get their billing with not one but two menu sections. A build-your-own burger section lists a choice of patty (beef, turkey, or Impossible), different cheeses, and toppings.

The other burger section gets into the spirit of the season with signature combinations. Most of them are served on a toasted brioche bun, but gluten-free buns are also available at an additional cost.

The Zombie Burger comes with a juicy charbroiled patty with a fried egg, avocado, bacon, and your choice of cheese. Or try the Tarantula Burger, stacked with crispy bacon, pepper jack cheese, onion strings, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and garlic mayo.

For children, there’s a “Little Haunters Menu” with kid-friendly choices including mac and cheese, a hot dog or corn dog, or hamburgers or cheeseburger sliders. The “Undead Desserts” are just as fun with the option of creating your own sundae or going with the Death by Chocolate Cake.

As for drinks, there are cocktails and mocktails along with regular sodas, beers, and wines available. The list of “Crypt Keeper Cocktails” includes Frankenstein, with a combination of ginger ale, pineapple juice, tequila, blue Curaçao, lemon, lime, and orange slices.

In addition to food and drink, the restaurant’s décor really enhances the dining experience. Desner hired a theme design company from South Carolina to handle the decorating, but he also included some animatronics that he owns. The interior puts out a fun, ghoulish vibe complimented by statues and wall art of friendly or fiendish creatures or designs.

What Is It Like At The Haunted House Of Hamburgers?

Haunted House of Hamburgers’ Instagram account provides pictures showing what the restaurant looks like on the inside and outside. On the semi-dim interior, get the feel of a haunted house, with murals depicting angry-looking trees with bright orange eyes and mouths.

Amid booth seating, the facing walls are painted with massive cobwebs or fiery cauldrons. The Vampire Bar has a portrait of Dracula behind it and is stocked with matching theme cocktail glasses.

"People love hamburgers. People love Halloween."

The exterior of the restaurant also has some themed fixtures. According to this Instagram picture , a replica of Friday the 13th’ s Camp Crystal Lake is surrounded by some sinister-looking characters such as a wolf man, a Jack O’Lantern headed individual, and the famous Jason Voorhees.

Another Instagram photo shows that diners can walk through a graveyard with a graveled pathway going along a corn maze-looking route aligned with fake tombstones and displayed scarecrows and scary and not-so-scary figures.
