Mount Misery - Real Haunts in Melville NY

  • Sweet Hollow Road
  • Melville, NY
Mount Misery is a rocky area which early colonists found near impossible to farm and Native claimed to be cursed. A small mental hospital is said to have been built on the grounds in the early 1900s, but after a patient named Mary escaped she set the building on fire; there was no effort to rebuild, and Mary is alleged to be buried somewhere on the grounds.

A great deal of paranormal activity has been reported at Mount Misery. Visitors have reported visions of ghastly children and of a woman calling for help. Others have smelled foul odors or blood and heard growling when no animals were in sight, and some say they have seen a strange beast with glowing red eyes. Glowing orbs and shadow people have been seen as well, and voices crying out or saying that they are burning have been heard.

  • Mount Misery Road

    We drove there one night just for fun... it wasn't. On a perfectly clear night, the minute we turned onto this road, there was a crawling fog covering the ground. I stepped out with my camera to snap a few pictures in complete darkness with no commerial or residential lights to be seen. What I captured was an eerie light orb in the woods. We left quickly with no intention of ever returning.
