Do you believe in the paranormal? Whether you’re a true believer in ghosts or a die-hard skeptic, visit any of the spooky sites on the Haunted History Trail of New York State to test your beliefs. Stay at a haunted inn, join an investigative team on a ghost hunt, or go on a candlelit tour of a haunted building.
In Oneida County alone, there are several locations with ghostly activity. Visit the depression era Capitol Theatre in Rome that has stood since 1928, and try to catch a glimpse of the former projectionist who lurks in the shadows. If you’re feeling brave, book a night at The Hulbert House hotel in Boonville. Maybe “Wayne” will hold the door for you in his Civil War uniform!
In Sylvan Beach, explore haunted areas of Sylvan Beach Amusement Park. The guided tour is based on the findings of the SyFy Channel’s Ghost Hunters’ investigation of the restaurant and amusement park. For a different kind of paranormal experience, take a ride on the Haunted Rail Ghost Train. The Adirondack Scenic Railroad excursion begins at the historic Union Station in Utica and goes to Remsen, where passengers will learn about hauntings at the Remsen Depot, the Remsen Stone Meeting House, and the Remsen Art Center.
