One of the most popular haunted places in the state is The Landmark Inn. Famous female pilot Amelia Earhart stayed at this hotel right before her death. It is said that her ghost makes frequent appearances in room 502. Many guests have reported odd noises coming from underneath the bed along with weird flickering lights.

Everyone has heard of the Bermuda Triangle, but what about the Michigan Triangle? The triangle stretches across Lake Michigan and is known to have some very unexplainable mysteries. Just like the Bermuda Triangle, there have been tales of ghost ships, UFO sightings and mysterious disappearances.

The Paulding Light lights up on Highway 45 near the town of Paulding. Many people say the light is that of a railroad worker that died while trying to switch a train track. Others say it could be the ghost of a Native American dancing on power lines. No matter whom you talk to, they believe the light is a ghost of some ancient spirit.

Squirrel

Black Squirrels are not very common, but Michigan is one of the few regions that see a lot of these animals. Some believe black squirrels are evil. But that is just a myth. It is said that the founder of Kellogg cereals had these squirrels brought over to fight red squirrels.

The Denton Road Bridge in Belleville is especially creepy. A woman lost her child on the bridge during a car crash and it is said that her ghost still haunts the bridge. Many bystanders believe the woman’s ghost is still there and have reported hearing the baby cry.
