Haunted Ohio lots of Columbus places but no Worthington places on the list?
The Shadowlands Ohio list of haunted places has lots of haunted places in Central Ohio on the list but nothing in Worthington?
Worthington embraces "ghosts stories" see links below!
The Shadowlands site says the Nationwide Arena is haunted, built on the Ohio State Pen site.
James Thurbers house was haunted of course... because it was near the insane asylum and a poor deranged soul stopped by when Thurber was a young man? Trying to remember if the poor deranged soul was dead or alive? I think dead. I don't think Thurber House in downtown Columbus even made the listed of Haunted Ohio Places on the Shadowlands site.
Granville Ohio has ghosts of course... but that is way out in Licking County.
Haunted Ohio lots of Columbus places
Where is Walnut Knolls? Where is St. Pius X school? Where is "the Air and Space Museum" in Columbus?
Camp Chase? Fort Hayes High School Kelton House? Walhalla Rd or Wallhalla Ravine? Of course... those make sense to me!
Children's Hospital, Columbus State Community College, Ohio State University's Mirror Lake are all haunted according to the list.
Haunted Ohio lots of ghosts in greater Columbus
Central Ohio suburbs.. I see Dublin in the list...the haunted golf course, Leatherlips. I see Gahanna, who knew Gahanna - Jefferson High School gym would be haunted by someone dribbling a basketball in the dark? A pizza hut in Hilliard? Or maybe it is Pizza Hut in Gahanna and an Arby's in Hilliard? Haunted fast food places amuse me for some reason.
It amazes me that there is no Worthington or no Westerville on the Shadowlands list of haunted Ohio places. Not that I know of real ghosts in either of those cities, I just think of older houses spawning ghost stories.
The Shadowlands Ohio Haunted Places site warns against visiting the sites they have listed. Not because of the ghost but because they are secured, private, or patroled. They are safer to visit online.
I was showing a HUD home in northeast Ohio to a client and she said as old as it was it had to be haunted. I did not think it was even that old. It may have been from the 1920's?
Is the photo above some old drafty, "mansiony", haunted house in Columbus? Nope. That house is in the Village of New Albany... that is a doctored up photo of a home in Ackerly Park in New Albany...built in 2010. Ackerly Park was the site of the 2010 Columbus BIA Parade of Homes. Ackerly Park is a beautiful neighborhood, walkable to shops, restaurants, etc. in the village. Ackerly Park is adjacent to a picturesque cemetery, should make Halloween fun for those who embrace fall spookiness.
The beautiful home pictured built by New England Homes has the "Amityville Horror" house windows up in the attic there... that may have been what inspired me to ghost the photo up a bit here.
