We’ve got ghost towns, ghost stories, and a few ‘haunted’ places, but is Washington actually haunted? We all have our opinions, but according to a new report, that absolutely is not the case.

Now how did moveBuddha.com determine this report? The website used factors like the number of ghost sightings per capita, number of unsolved homicides per capita, number of haunted places per capita, and more. These factors were divided into three categories Spook Score, Creep Score, and Boo Score, and each state was ranked from 1-10 between these categories.
