Got spooks? Wanna be on T.V.?

Just received an email from someone looking to cast for a new Paranormal television show. He asked if I knew of any family’s that fit the bill, and since I don’t, I figured I’d post the casting sheet here (below). If you meet the criteria, get in touch with him. Good luck.

So I went to Visit Munchkinville/Tiny Town Today…

 

Handlebar Ranch 2014

Handlebar Ranch 2014

 

So I took a drive out to Handlebar Ranch, or Munchkinville if you prefer to call it. I still get inquiries as to it’s location, and for info on the legends about the place, so I thought we’d show you what it looks like today. The place has been closed and the lot vacant for years, and is actually owned by Rumpke now. All that remains is the wagon wheel gate, the old, wooden bridge, and some cement walls. Now obviously, there never was a town of retired circus midgets here, but it sure made for a good story. If you don’t know the story of Munchkinville, you can read about it HERE. And if you want to see it yourself, It’s located at 11317 Hughes Road in Northern Cincinnati. But, again, no Trespassing…you don’t wanna piss off the midgets!

 

The Abandonded Cincinnati Subway Tunnels

I could write for hours talking about all the facts and trivia concerning the never completed Cincinnati Subway tunnels, but instead, i’ll just give you the basics. If you want to know the history and facts about it, and see plenty of pictures,  visit Cincinnati-tranit.net. They can tell you the story alot better, and in depth, than I could.

Though you can see the entrance to part of the tunnels from I-75 near  Hopple Street, don’t bother trying to get in for a look.  If it were that easy, I’d have pics of my own posted here. You used to be able to sneak in, but all the entrances have now been secured, they REALLY don’t want you in there. There are occasionally tours given of parts of the tunnels, but even on those, no cameras are allowed. They are usually given once a year, and they fill up quickly. You can get some info about the tours HERE.

Those who did manage to get inside when it was still possible claim the tunnels are haunted by the ghosts of workers who died during construction. They tell of disembodied voices and moving shadows. But again, chances of getting inside are slim to none, so do yourself a favor, and don’t bother trying. Wait for one of the tours instead.

Poor Bigfoot

This has nothing to do with Cincinnati, but what the hell. Bigfoot hunter Rick Dyer claims he killed the above pictured Sasquatch, who he calls “Hank”, in 2012. He now plans to show it off by taking it on tour. Just thought I’d share this bit of dumb-assery for anyone that may have missed it, you can read the full story HERE. Maybe next he can bag one of those mermaids they keep talking about on Animal Planet.

Local Myths & Legends: ‘Superman’ George Reeves is Buried in Spring Grove Cemetery

   I’ve heard this since I was a kid…that George Reeves, star of the 1950′s ‘Superman’ TV show, is buried here in Cincinnati at Spring Grove Cemetery. While he did spend some time there postmortem, he is, in fact, NOT buried there. George died on June 16, 1959 from a gun shot wound to the head, which was ruled as a suicide.
