 Oak Hill 

Central School Building – The school is believed to be haunted by a little girl. Witnesses have reported hearing her laugh and have seen her as a hazy figure. People have also reported the feeling of being followed.

Oak Hill Cemetery – A spirit who knocks over tombstones and appears in front of people at night is said to haunt this old, isolated cemetery.


Harvey Wells House – The Harvey Wells House is said to be haunted by Harvey Wells himself. An industrialist and mathematician, Harvey built the home in 1883 on top of a hill overlooking the city. Wells jumped from a second story window in October 1896, fracturing an arm and a leg. Those injuries led to his demise. Witnesses have reported seeing his apparition standing in the window from where he had lept. When the property was used as a nursing home, employees said they could hear ghostly footsteps in the middle of the night when no one was up and walking around.
