Opened in 1955, Plattsburg Air Force Base was an active military base for 40 years before being decommissioned in the mid ‘90s. Parts of it have since been redeveloped and used for residential housing as well as a historical museum. Though the base was not established until World War II, visitors have reported seeing the spirits of those who lived as far back as the Revolution or the French and Indian War; Plattsburg was also the site of a major American victory in the War of 1812. Ghost children, flashing lights, cold spots, the sounds of soldiers on horseback are among the paranormal phenomena said to occur on the 3,447 acre plot. Some have seen the phantoms of combatants refighting a battle from the French and Indian War, and others have seen a Revolutionary soldier march or standing guard at the pillars near the front entrance. A pale lady in white has been seen in the nearby woods, and the basement walls of the finance building—a former hospital—are allegedly painted red to mask a multitude of bloodstains. Screams and loud pounding have been heard from the Old Gym, which was once a morgue during wartime. Ghostly soldiers have also been seen marching through the base’s cemetery. Clearly the base is a veritable hotbed of ghostly activity, so be wary if you visit!
