Fort McClellan - Anniston AL Real Haunt
Established as Camp Shipp in 1898 and later repurposed as Camp McClellan in 1912, this site saw sporadic use before being designated as a permanent post and renamed Fort McClellan in 1929. The fort was used a Prisoner of War camp during World War II, and later became a training facility for the military, focusing on the Chemical Corps, Military Police Corps, and Women's Army Corps before eventually closing in 1999.
Some of the fort's lands have since been repurposed, while others are still pending environmental cleanup. Visitors to the area have reported some strange sights, including shadowy figures, apparitions, and odd lights. Others have felt cold spots and seen doors closing by themselves; footsteps have also been heard in the old Patton Building.

During Basic Training
In September of 1991, I was undergoing basic training at Ft. McClellan, AL. Our platoon/company was outside conducting P. T., at approx 6 or 7 pm. I clearly saw a younger woman in a white, tattered dress move across a field directly in front of us. She was semi-transparent and was no more than 100 ft away. One distinct fact that I remember is that the woman was moving, but had no legs/feet. It was the kind of thing that you shake your head at and keep going. I never asked or told anyone while I was there because I was scared of what they would say (especially during basic training). I share this story often with friends and family. It was the one and only time that I have ever experienced anything like that. Posted 10/23/16
