Cities Where You’re Most Likely to Live in a Haunted House
Louisiana is known far and wide as a state brimming with the supernatural. However, a new study just released ranks the "Top 10 Cities Where You're Most Likely to Live in a Haunted House" and, well...
Louisiana is known for its rich history, diverse culture, and unique folklore, which has led to numerous stories of paranormal activity and hauntings throughout the Pelican State.
Some of the most famous haunted places in Louisiana include the Myrtles Plantation, St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 in New Orleans, the LaLaurie Mansion, the Bentley Hotel in Alexandria, and the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge.
Here in Acadiana, we've got our fair share of haunts. Mary Jane's Bridge, T'Frere's House, Shadows-on-the-Teche, the Old Crowley Rice Theater, La Maison Begnaud, and many more.
All of this being said, when it comes to this new study, Louisiana has to have several cities on the "Top 10 Cities Where You're Most Likely to Live in a Haunted House" right?
At least New Orleans, right?
Curiously, according to the folks over at assurance.com, not one Louisiana city made the list.
Not even New Orleans.
From assurance.com -
"We crunched the numbers to identify homes based on paranormal sightings and crime data. Next, we compared these numbers to the total number of homes in each city to determine the likelihood of living in a haunted house by city."
After "crunching" those numbers, here's how their list of "Top 10 Cities Where You're Most Likely to Live in a Haunted House" shakes out.
1. Tulsa, OK
2. Akron, OH
3. Little Rock, AR
4. Louisville, KY
5. Oklahoma City, OK
6. Provo, UT
7. Chicago, IL
8. Knoxville, TN
9. Greenville, SC
10. Dayton, OH
Maybe no Louisiana cities showed up on this list because, we're just so used to ghosts and strange things that hardly any of it ever gets reported.
