The Haunted Huntsville Depot

I had a marvelous day today.  My boys and I went on a ghost hunting adventure that was more fun than we had planned on.  We went to one of the most haunted places in North Alabama to take pictures for the new book.  I have been warned by my publisher not to give everything that is going to be in the book away in the blog, so I won't say much.  But I will say that the ghost stories at Huntsville Depot are thick.  It has been investigated by psychics and ghost hunters and many others who have found it to be crowded with ghosts.  I was able to interview an employee there who told me the most haunted location at the depot is the vault.  My boys and I explored the vault and the ghost stories and although I can't say too much,  here are some photographs of our wonderful adventure.  The last picture was taken from the vault.

nice pics! didn't know you were publishing a book--very cool. just curious as to why this depot is so very haunted...I suppose I'll have to wait 'til the book comes out to discover why! when is the book being published?

It was an important location during the civil war and there was also a mysterious death there later on. The book should be out in October!

COOL! It's so neat you're doing this and all the places you get to see. I bet your boys are loving this. How fun for them to help their mom with her book, see all these places and learn all the neat history like they are. Way cool. I just love the buildings you've been photographing. Gorgeous locations! I really want to go to Huntsville and scope it out more now.
