USS Alabama - Real Haunts in Mobile AL
- 2703 Battleship Parkway
- Mobile, AL
Constructed in 1942, the USS Alabama (BB-60) saw heavy activity during World War II, helping the Allies to win their battle both in Europe and then in Japan. After running many successful missions, the battleship was decommissioned on January 9, 1947. Eight years later, the "Mighty A" was opened to the public as a museum ship and would later be declared a National Historic Landmark in 1986. The USS Alabama is certainly worth a visit for its historical significance alone, but rumor has it that the ship also has a paranormal connection. Some visitors say they have heard strange voices onboard, and witnessed hatches slamming shut all on their own!

Awesome this thing was the bestPosted 6/5/17
It was creepy
First of all, I've visited this place a million times. One time after I went below deck after just boarding the museum ship, I heard gunshots. And I mean loud exremely real like gunshots from outside. I also heard men yelling unrecognizable words, one I could make out was fire! I reacted by dropping to the floor and covering my ears. My dad looked at me like I was crazy, and by that time, the noise stopped. I asked if he heard the guns and his eyes widened and he said no. I then ran up the stairs to the outside deck. All I saw was tourists and visitors walking around. I was the only one that heard it. It scared me bad.
