5 haunted places in Cincy
Cincinnati Music Hall
The property on which Music Hall currently resides was a Potter's Field from 1818-1837, where the criminal, the destitute and the nameless were buried. It was also a hospital to house those patients with contagious diseases and it was known as the "Pest House".
In 1837 the building was used as the Orphan Asylum until it was moved in 1861. While nothing remains of the original structures, the stage in the main auditorium is built upon the foundations of the Orphan Asylum.
Employees, guests and performers alike have reported many strange experiences at Music Hall. From phantom singing and music being heard in different parts of the building, the freight elevator moving without being called, period figures in the auditorium seats, beautiful ladies strolling the halls, voices in the tower to restroom water facets being turned on when no one was in the building.
Bobby Mackey's Music World
Known as the "most haunted" nightclub in America, the building started as a slaughterhouse back in the 1850s.
Pearl Bryan, a 22 year-old woman who was murdered in 1896, supposedly haunts the Wilder, KY building. The pregnant woman's head was reportedly severed and never recovered. Some claim her head was used in Satanic rituals in the club's basement. Her killers were hanged in 1887. In the 1950s, a popular dance hall girl reportedly killed herself in the basement.
Listed by the Travel Channel as one of the most haunted places in America, it's currently owned by the Midwest Preservation Society, renovating the structure built more than 120 years ago. The building is part of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church and was home to clergy. Witnesses have reported seeing shadows and mist and some believe there are several ghosts who haunt the property.
Eden Park Gazebo
Legend has it that the ghost of a woman, Imogene Remus, the wife of a notorious bootlegger, haunts the gazebo not far from where her husband shot her to death. Since that time, there have been reports of a ghostly woman wearing a black gown standing in and around the gazebo, often seen crying.
The Golden Lamb Inn
The Lebanon Inn originally opened in 1803. The hotel has hosted a number of historical figures, including 12 United States Presidents. There are two ghosts who reportedly make themselves known to guests from time to time.
