If you're terrified of being caught inside a building that's known to be haunted, you will definitely want to avoid some of these locations.

From ghosts wandering the hallways to spirits making things fall from kitchen shelves, Conde Nast Traveler listed some of the spookiest places on the planet, and there are several in America.

These U.S. Places Are the Most Haunted in the World

No matter where you go, from a big city to a small town, there's always a landmark in every community that is "haunted."

Some of the spookiest locations are still worth your time—whether for their beautiful architecture, jaw-dropping locations, or fascinating histories

Some locations in America that made the 'most haunted' list include:

The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado

Made famous when the Stephen King movie "The Shining" starring Jack Nicholson was filmed in this hotel.

Ghost sightings and some mysterious piano music have been connected to the hotel, and the Stanley Hotel leans into its reputation with nightly ghost tours and psychic consultations from the in-house Madame Vera.

Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadephia

The prison had to abandon its solitary system due to overcrowding in 1913, although the forms of punishment did not get any less severe (chaining an inmate’s tongue to his wrists is one example) before it closed for good in 1970.

St. Augustine Lighthouse in Florida

Ever since the horrific death of three young girls, who drowned when the cart they were playing in broke and fell into the ocean, visitors have claimed to hear the sounds of children playing in and around the lighthouse.

Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana

The house is rumored to be on top of an Indian burial ground and is home to at least 12 different spirits. Legends and ghost stories abound, including the tale of a former slave named Chloe, who had her ear chopped off after she was caught eavesdropping.

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in West Virginia

The severe overcrowding led to inhumane conditions (like lack of heat and convalescent people kept in cages), and patients started acting increasingly violent, from starting fires to attacking staff members. The asylum finally closed in 1994, but the souls of some patients are said to linger.

Oriental Theater in Chicago, Illinois

The street behind the Oriental Theater in Chicago is called "Death Alley" and according to Conde Nast Traveler, "Ghosts are said to haunt the Oriental Theater (formerly the Iroquois Theater) in the Loop area of downtown Chicago, where almost 600 people perished after a fire famously broke out in 1903."

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
