A list was made by CNTraveler and it lists the most haunted places in America which features 2 huge Pennsylvania historical landmarks. Can you guess which landmarks made the list?

Every year, Eastern State Penitentiary turns into Terror Behind The Walls which is a haunted walk-through taking place right in the prison.

The prison was closed down in 1970, but there tends to be a ton of spirit activity to this day inside the penitentiary.
