  1. I had to triple check the map to make sure I had the right place, but I was in the area back in 2013 and we stopped at a candy shop that was supposedly haunted. We were on a ghost tour that I had been dragged along to with my friends and I didn’t think it was real at all. It was pretty late and I was one of the last ones in the store and as soon as you walk in there’s a staircase that’s really dark. As I was on my way out, I snapped a few pictures of the stairs to see if I could find any weird orbs. I caught a couple, and when I tried to walk out, as soon as I opened the door it slammed back shut again. I panicked and struggled to get it open but it wouldnt open again until someone from the outside opened it and I bolted out and back to our tour bus. One of the creepiest things that has ever happened to me.
