Carey Windmill – Originally known as the Dutch Mill Truck Stop, the building was used as a restaurant and filling station. Witnesses have seen a ghostly man with a briefcase looking up at them as they looked out from the third story window. (Credits: Justing Schlack and Xavi Boes)

Lutheran Ridge Cemetery – Located less than a mile north of the intersection of State Route 568 and Township Road 95, a tombstone in this cemetery is said to contain a terrifying image. The image can only be seen at night in the headlights of a car. It shows Mrs. Copley’s death as her husband squeezes his hands around her throat. It is said that the image appeared on a second tombstone after the first was replaced and that anyone who sits atop the stone will be cursed with bad luck. Related: Contribution


Crawford Monument – This memorial near a farm just outside of Crawford marks the spot where Colonel William Crawford was brutally killed by Indians in 1782 as retribution for the massacre at Gnadenhutten. The Wyandot Indians made his death as painful as possible. Crawford was tied to a post, tortured for nearly two hours, scalped and burned alive. It is said that on foggy nights, you can hear Crawford’s faint screams of agony near the place he was killed.


McCutcheonville Cemetery – This cemetery is said to contain a glowing tombstone. The glowing can be seen from State Route 53 and County Highway 16.
