We talked about Western Pa.’s haunted house attractions in our last edition. These locations, however, are supposedly the real deal:
• The original Pittsburgh Playhouse in Oakland is famed for ghosts, including the murderous “Lady in White,” who committed suicide there, and a tuxedoed actor who died in a dressing room.
• The old Allegheny County Jail now is home to courtrooms – and a shade or two. A former warden’s wife and an executed inmate allegedly roam the halls.
• Chatham University’s campus is filled with ghost stories, but none are creepier to students than the hovering “Blue Lady of Woodland Hall.”
