They say plagiarism is another form of flattery. I am the original person who wrote this article – The Ten Most Haunted Places in Sacramento, CA. This was originally on the website Haunted America Tours and the owner of the website was upset, because I share my articles with other websites. He wanted this article exclusively for his own website. Before I knew it, many people were taking this article and basically keeping the information I wrote and adding in a few things to make the article a slight bit different from the original. If you would like to see the original article that I wrote…then read on!
