Hauntings & Legends of Ohio

The Ohio Exploration Society has collected and indexed thousands of haunted locations and legends from all of Ohio’s 88 counties. Many of these entries are genuine and documented haunts. Others are legend or hearsay. Believe those that you choose or believe in none, it is your choice. If you know of a haunted place, legend, or have a first-hand ghost story, please complete our Haunting Submission Form. If you would like, we will even include your name with your story. Remember, we do not condone trespassing on private property. Always seek permission should you choose to visit a haunted location on private property.
