HPAZ - A Work in Progress

Welcome to the Haunted Places of Arizona website! This site is still in its early stages and is constantly a work in progress. It is also quite small at the moment, only a fraction of what it will be one day - but we hope you can realize how much research and work is required for each article, and forgive us for not updating as often as we all would like. We also hope that you will enjoy everything we currently have posted. You can scroll down to the bottom of this page for a list of cities and haunted places that are currently featured. Perhaps you'd even like to help us build our archive by submitting your own experiences, information, photos and more - or even by becoming a staff member and writing articles for us.

We truly apologize for not being able to update that often and want you to know that we have not forgotten about the site, even during our long periods of absence. We love this site as much as we hope you will, and we want to see it grow into the web's biggest, most informative and most accurate archive regarding Arizona hauntings. So please feel free to do your part by e-mailing us anything you think we can use or will be interested in, or even for more information about becoming a writer for us. And don't forget to sign up for our mailing list so you will be the first to know when we post a new update!


Recent Updates

Sept 14, 2012 - Please welcome the two newest incarnations of HPAZ: our brand-new message boards, where you can interact with the webmaster and other visitors and discuss haunted places and the paranormal in general... and our Facebook page. Please check out both of them, post, sign up, LIKE us! We'd love to have you! Neither of the two pages is very pretty right now, but they exist, and that's the important thing, right? Both are brand-new and will be receiving face lifts before long! Thanks everyone! Message boards are here: http://z13.invisionfree.com/Haunted_Places_of_AZ/index.php / Facebook: http://facebook.com/hauntedarizona

Sep 13, 2012 - Greetings everyone! I'd like to thank you for your continued interested in this website despite the horrific lack of updates! As you may or may not know, there is only one person in charge of this website at the moment - and I haven't had a computer for a while, as my laptop's hard drive died. I still don't have one, as a matter of fact. My internet access is limited to my smart phone (and there are some things for which a 3.5 inch screen just isn't convenient), and the public library. Even so, I have received several e-mails here recently from visitors like you. I even received an e-mail from East Valley Business Magazine wanting to use some of the content and list the site as a resource, which is a huge honor. This promoted me to check out the stats and I realized that this site has been averaging almost 200 hits per day, which I think is pretty good considering I haven't done a single thing to it in almost a year! There are also a lot more of you who are subscribed to the mailing list. So THANK YOU, and I want to let you know that this has inspired me and I will do the best I can to get some more articles out there really soon, despite the limited amount of internet time they allow at the library. I am also working on a Facebook page for the website, so please check it out and LIKE it as soon as the announcement is made... I would greatly appreciate it! your enthusiasm over the site makes me feel really excited and enthusiastic myself. Thanks again and happy haunting! P.S. Halloween is on its way... YESSSSS!!!!

Oct 31, 2011 - On this day, when the veil between living and dead is at its thinnest, we'd like you to take a look at our brand-new article and read all about the ghostly activity taking place at London Bridge. Have a safe and horrifying Halloween!

May 08, 2011 - It has been a very long time since our last update and we do sincerely apologize, but we would like to announce the addition of a new location to the archive! The Jerome Grand Hotel has been added to the following categories: Jerome, hotels, and hospitals, as the building was a hospital before it was renovated and turned into a hotel. Enjoy!

Sep 07, 2010 - Angeline's Grave has been added to the site, and can be found in the new gravesites category, as well as on the Prescott page. We have also given the homepage a somewhat new layout.

Sep 03, 2010 - As you may have noticed, we haven't been able to post new updates on this site for a little while for behind the scenes reasons. However, we now have a mailing list so you can be alerted whenever there is a new update. Just sign up below, and anytime there is a new page or update posted on this site we will e-mail you!

Our Purpose and Goals

Map of the regions of Arizona

There are a lot of websites out there that are dedicated to haunted places, including Arizona ones. However, these websites also include locations across the entire country, which limits the amount of information that can be posted for each individual haunting. Most of them only have a paragraph or two. What's worse, every one of these sites seems to have copied and pasted the same paragraph from the same source.

Our site is locally focused because we want to add as much information as possible to each individual location. Our goal is to have original, well-researched and in-depth articles about as many locations as possible across the state of Arizona. We also hope that readers who live in the state, or have visited, will submit their personal experiences with the paranormal at any of the state's haunted places. We want to become the biggest, most definitive source for information regarding any of Arizona's reported hauntings, including a detailed history of each location and as much reported activity as possible.

As you can see, the state is divided into five major regions. Three of the five regions are named after a large city contained within them; however, that section of the site will contain stories from all over the region, not just within that major city. The map at the left shows how the regions are divided, with each one containing anywhere from 2 to 5 counties. They are divided on the county lines to make things more organized.
