Many people are skeptical of ghosts, but this is so until they themselves collide with them. Most people do not believe in these supernatural phenomena, not relying even on the stories of numerous eyewitnesses. But if you still believe that in our world there are some kind of non-material beings, the story of the most famous ghosts will be interesting.
Slave from the Myrtovo Plantation.
According to legend, once in one of the American mansions lived a slave, who was called Chloe. The woman had a bad habit – to spy and eavesdrop in the keyhole for all the inhabitants of the mansion. But one day after this occupation she was caught by the owner and cut off one ear in punishment. As a result, an unfortunate woman, in order to hide her wound, was forced to wear a green shawl all the time. But punishment did not make Chloe, but vice versa. She decided to take revenge on her master and baked a cake for him, in which she put poisonous oleander leaves. Only here the master and did not manage to try the poisoned meal – it was outstripped by two daughters and the wife. As a result of terrible torment, women died. The master’s anger fell upon his slaves, who quickly identified the culprit and hung Chloe on the same day. History has reached us in the form of vague legends and old photographs. However, not only Chloe appears on the local plantation. In the mirrors of the mansion, it is told, one of the girls she killed is displayed – a ghost sends curses to someone who dares to spend the night in her room. Today, the local mansion is one of the most famous places for those who dared to touch the other world.
Girl from the cemetery of Resurrection.
In the US state of Illinois, in the town of Justit, people often have to meet with the mysterious ghost of a blue-eyed blond woman voting on the roadside. The ghost is dressed in a white dress, and calls herself Mary. It is said that she asks for a ride, but near the cemetery of Resurrection she disappears without a trace. The legend of this girl has existed for about 80 years, curiously, Mary meets not only those who know about her, but also completely strangers. So, in 1973, one of the taxi drivers complained that he had picked up a girl on the roadside, who asked for a lift, and she mysteriously disappeared near the cemetery without paying. When a man was asked to name the signs of his companion, he described exactly Mary, known throughout the district.
This ghost is known to all sailors. “Flying Dutchman” was born in 1641. It was in this year that the captain of the ship of the East India Company, Hendrik Van der Decken, decided to skirt the Cape of Good Hope for a dispute in a terrible storm, even if it cost him his life. Since that time the ship has not been seen, but near the cape began to meet the ghost of the ship. At the same time, he appeared so close to the sides that it seemed that the collision was inevitable. However, soon the ghost dissolved in the fog, which he always accompanied. The Flying Dutchman had many eyewitnesses, but the most famous of them was King of England George V, who even noted in his diary a meeting with a mysterious ghost. The monarch wrote that at first he saw a mystical red light, then out of the fog the contours of the brig gradually began to appear, with sails and masts. Soon the ghost dissolved in the haze, and the sailor, who first noticed the “Dutchman” fell from the mast and died to death.
The ghost of Anna Boleyn.
The second wife of the English King Henry VIII managed to stay on the throne for only three years, this, however, was enough to give life to the future Queen Elizabeth I. Her Majesty was executed in 1536 for terrible accusations of witchcraft and incest, but today historians come to thought that she was simply envied by envious persons. Since ancient times, the ghost of Queen Anne can often be found in the old churches and castles of London. Eyewitnesses say that they met a beautiful woman in rich and elegant outfits. However, some people think of a completely different picture: Anna Boleyn is seen as a decapitated corpse.

The ghost of Reyham Hall.
Another name for this ghost is “The Brown Lady”, as he is dressed in a classic brown dress. The ghost was even able to be filmed in 1936 by the owners of the English house Reich Hall. It is not clear who this woman is, but it is assumed that this is Dorothy, the sister of Robert Walpole and the ex-wife of the Marquis of Townshend. At 26 she married a hero of her child’s love, who by that time had been a widower. According to the legend, Townshend found out that Dorothy was cheating on him with Lord Warton, and locked her in his own rooms. Soon she died under mysterious circumstances, it is obvious that her death somehow proved to be connected with this house. There are many evidences about the meeting with the “brown lady”. The most famous were the memoirs of George IV, then regent. At the beginning of the XIX century, he slept in Reykh Hall and woke up at night, when he saw a pale woman with disheveled hair standing next to the bed. Another famous case was the meeting with the ghost of Colonel Loftus in 1835. He met Christmas at the Hall and suddenly saw a ghost at night. The military chased after him, but the ghost ran down the stairs and disappeared. The next night a new meeting took place – Loftus met the “brown lady” on the stairs, the ghost carried a lamp. Colonel recalls that the woman was dressed in luxurious brocade, and her hair was hidden in a cap. In this case the eye sockets were dark and empty. Loftus so well remembered this meeting that he even sketched a mysterious ghost. The next known fact of meeting with the ghost told writer Frederic Marriet. One night he, and two members of the Townshend family, collided with the “brown lady.” The writer did not lose his head and fired at her point blank, claiming that the bullet had passed through the ghost. Later, they found her in the door behind the place where the ghost was. After that, the ghost was not heard until 1920, and in 1936, while filming Reich Hall was able to shoot and the “brown lady.” The photo became a sensation, and the experts who examined it could not find any signs of forgery.Since then, the ghost began to appear in the house much less often.
Today this mansion costs three million pounds and is put up for sale. The hall was built in the eleventh century and is located in Nottingampshire, England. The building passed from generation to generation of the Clifton family. In 1958 the house was decided to be sold. At first it was acquired by the rich man from Dubai Anwar Rashid, but after only eight months he fled his new home with his wife and four children. The reason for this was the deadly fear of haunted houses. From the first days of staying there, at the door constantly someone knocked and asked who is home. In this case, no one in front of the door was not. The most terrible events occurred one Sunday. Anwar’s wife decided to prepare a meal for the child in one of the lower rooms. There she found her daughter, who was watching TV. The woman called her daughter several times, but she did not receive any reply. Then she went upstairs and found this child sleeping peacefully in her bed.
The white lady.
And this famous ghost lives far from English castles. He is often seen in the Philippines. The lady chose the Ballet Highway for her nocturnal appearances. The ghost looks like a black-haired girl in a white dress, her face is bloodied. Many tourists talk about their meetings with her. At night, on the Ballet track, few people decide to drive, especially singles. It is believed that the ghost does not like superfluous witnesses, preferring single drivers.
