Who doesn’t love a good scare? Iowa has many real hauntings locations that you can visit. Below are the Top 5 I recommend checking out. Are you ready to face your ghostly fears?
If you want to experience some real hauntings, be sure to check out this cemetery located in Iowa City.
Iowa City has a mysterious “black angel” that allegedly has a cursed graveyard statue. This cursed black angel is located at the Oakland Cemetery in Iowa City. Stories have been said that this angel was once bronze in color and is now an “eerie black”. This angel was placed over a grave of a child, Eddie Dolezal, who died of meningitis in 1891. Eddie’s mother, Teresa, wanted this angel to be placed over her son and husband’s bodies in the cemetery. Teresa then died of cancer on November 18, 1924 and her ashes were also placed beneath this angel, which is when all the strange occurrences started to happen.

The Villisca Ax Murder House is located in Villisca, Iowa and has a very sad, yet horrifying history to why people believe it is haunted.
On the night of June 9, 1912 a family of six and their children’s two friends were murdered as they slept by an unknown attacker with an ax, hence the name Ax Murder house. Nobody currently lives at the home but the recent owner opened the house for tours and paranormal investigations. Many people who have visited this house have experienced ghostly encounters.
A haunted hospital? Yes. The Independence State Hospital has been called by many different names. The Independence Asylum for the Insane, the Independence Lunatic Asylum and the Independence State Asylum. This hospital has a very dark history and the most violent patients were housed far away from the offices. Many visitors have reported hearing whispers, the feeling of being watched and feeling cold drafts. Apparitions have been spotted as well on the grounds around the hospital.
As seen on Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures, the 150-year-old Edinburgh Manor is one place you will want to check out. Located in Jones County, Iowa, the manor was once a mental institution and at least 80 people have died here. Zak Bagans, Host of Ghost Adventures, mentions in the episode that there is a tall, dark entity known as “The Joker” who terrorizes people who enter.
Located in Davenport, Iowa the Masonic Temple, also known as the Vickie Anne Palmer Building owned by Palmer College is filled with paranormal activity. Palmer Security who patrol this building all throughout the day and night have claimed to have seen full-body apparitions that come and disappear throughout the halls and doorways. People also claim to be touched and have the feeling that they are being watched and multiple individuals have said they hear disembodied voices and footsteps.
