Stories, legends, tales, hauntings...whatever word you use, they are all different ways to describe history. 

If you are telling a story, its the same as reciting history, the only thing that makes the same into a legend or tale is the amount of flair you add to it. The same can be said for hauntings and ghost stories. It's very rare to find something brand new that is haunted; because history and hauntings go hand-in-hand.

Even when you hear a story of a brand new building having hauntings, you generally find out about something horrific that happened on the land before, or that the foundation is on a burial ground of some kind.
