 USS Alabama BB-60, Mobile

The USS Alabama BB-60 sets in its final resting pace in Mobile, Alabama and it is alleged to serve as a home to a variety of ghostly entities. The 680 foot long ship is a military attraction that sees many visitors every year and many of these visitors have reported paranormal activity and unexplained events. The vast majority of the activity is attributed to the deaths of two men during the construction of the mighty ship. The vessel was completed in 1942 and served for 3 years without any fatalities from enemy fire. However, ironically there were numerous deaths caused by friendly fire.  One of the guns’ safety features which should have prevented turrets from firing upon each other is said to have failed, causing the deaths of 8 men!

Visitors to the USS Alabama have reported hearing footsteps coming towards them when nobody is there and there have been apparitions spotted in the officers’ quarters and the cook’s galley. Those on board late at night have described hearing popping and tapping noises in the bulkheads and solid steel hatches have also been known to slam shut on their own. Visitors say that they often feel as though they are being watched and women in particular feel uneasy with one lady actually having her earrings tugged as she passed the sleeping quarters.
