The state of Ohio is full of haunted places. From the lake to the river, from Indiana to PA, odds are you're never more than a stone's throw from someplace where something weird has happened. From my hours in the Local Interest section at libraries across our state I've assembled as many as I could find in a constantly updated, county-by-county list, which you can access below. Use it as a travel guide and then write to me about your experiences. Click a county on the map below, or scroll down to pick your county from the text list.
