Pearl Harbor in Oahu

We all know the unfortunate catastrophe that occurred on December 7th, 1941. Japan attacked the Pearl Harbor Naval Station as well as the Hickem Air Force Base, countless of lives lost..

The tremendous loss and history resulted in the area laying claim to unrested spirits and ghosts. Visitors claim to experience various things, such as sadness, pain, and also fright without reason.

The Iao Theater was designed by Edward Walsh and after $40,000 in construction, it opened in August of 1928. It was originally a movie and vaudeville (genre of entertainment) house until it fell into despair in the 80s. In 1994, it was listed as a historic location, nationally in 1995.

Visitors and staff experience seeing a ‘friendly’ female apparition as well as the ghosts of soldiers being spotted in the basement. Other activity reported are voices, cold spots, and shadows.

Home to a collection of tropical flora and native Hawaiian plants, The Wahiawa Botanical Garden sits on a high plateau in central O’ahu. The Garden’s site started in the 1920’s as the Hawaiian Sugar Planter’s Association bought land for experimental tree planting. The property was transferred to Honolulu in 1950 and opened as a botanical garden in 1957.

Although it is breathtaking, the garden has numerous reports of paranormal occurrences. The most known being the ‘Green Lady.’ She is spotted to be covered in gross mold others say she has messed up teeth and scaly skin hair covered in seaweed. Another story is that if you cross a certain bridge within the gardens alone, you’ll never return.

Hickam Air Force Base

This base was also apart of the attack from Japan along with Pearl Harbor (as mentioned above). It has since joined with Pearl Harbor, making it the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickem. It neighbors Honolulu International Airport as they share runways.

Those who have visited claimed to have had some sort of paranormal experiences. People have heard soldiers dying, heard bombs hitting and exploding. Others see the ghosts of soldiers roaming around the base including an entity that apparently likes to prank people. Another ghost of a soldier is spotted in the shack in which he died. Throughout its years, the base has seen sadness, war, and death but seemingly, it still occurs to the spirits that remain.

Nu’uanu Pali Highway in Oahu

The Nu’uanu Pali Highway also known as Hawaii Route 61 is the main highway used in Oahu and is actually the third roadway to be built here. The original highway barely remains but went along the same route as the current one. The Old Pali Highway is known to be strongly connected spiritually as many ghost stories originated from this now old road. A large portion of it was built over ancient Hawaiian foot paths that traversed the Pali pass, which was the most easily accessible path.

At the lookout, people have spotted a ghost in white as well as soldiers being tossed off the cliff. I’d be pretty freaked if spotted anything like that…Another story of the highway is if you transport pork across the highway, an older woman and her dog will stop you and not let you pass until you feed the dog.
