I live in Frederick County Maryland and apparently there are enough ghosts and sightings here there is a book written about the places where you can “see” ghosts.
The book is entitled “Ghosts and Legends of Frederick County” this book is sold everywhere throughout the county, and yes I do have a copy.

Local Group of Ghost Hunters Investigates Historic FrederickBuilding NBC 25
FREDERICK, MD - It's not the ghost of Christmas past they're after, but one group of paranormal investigators were recently on the hunt for ghostly phenomena in one historic building in Frederick.

S.I.G.H.T., the Scientific Investigation of Ghosts & Haunting Team has shed some light on the issue for the past 5 years in the Four-State Region.

Using their supply of scientific equipment, they wired, video-taped and measured many locations within Brainstorm Comics in downtown Frederick to record any unnatural phenomena.

The building, which was once a mortuary, dates back to the 19th Century and is said to be haunted.

The team used instruments like infrared thermometers and electromagnetic field meters to measure unusual fluctuations within the building.  They attempt to rule out all natural answers to a phenomenon before they speculate further.

There was nothing conclusive about this experience, but the team could attest to "something" going on.  Unusual sounds, lights, and even smells were observed on occasion.

"Even if we don't know what causes this phenomenon, we know that it's happening," said Angela Souders, a S.I.G.H.T. investigator.  "We have substantiated that experience for that person - that they are experiencing this.  They felt, they've seen it.  We've have proof that it's happening.  What that is - we're still learning.  We don't know all the answers.  If we did know them, we wouldn't be here doing this."

The S.I.G.H.T. team will meet at a later date to study their findings and share their evidence of paranormal activity.
