Haunted houses depicted in books, movies and television shows with recommendations will be listed as well.

The Carson Mansion at Eureka, California
The Carson mansion is not considered to be haunted but it or stylistic versions of it are often used on book covers and in illustrations, comics, tv shows and films, where a scary, creepy, looming, thunderstruck Victorian mansion is needed.
Some might remember it from, Tales from the Crypt.
The house fortunately is still existing and functions as the private Ingomar Club. Kept in pristine condition and with beautifully authentic interiors, it is a must see, if only from the street, when on the west coast.
