The Gwynn Building

    Located at sixth and Main in Downtown Cincinnati, The Gwynn Building was built in the early 1900’s (completed in 1914), and is one of only fifteen buildings in Hamilton County to be listed in the Department of Interiors National Historic register. It’s a cool old building (click HERE to read a little history) that’s another recent addition to the local paranormal community.

   The building is pretty big, with a large, creepy basement. People that work there have long reported unexplained voices and foot steps, shadow people, etc. There have been a few deaths at the Gwynn, the first occurring back in the buildings early days when maintenance man was electrocuted while changing a fuse in the basement. In later years there was also a homeless man found dead(of natural causes) in the basement, and most recently, a woman lost here life outside the building.

   A few paranormal groups have investigated there in the last 2 years, with only some supposed EVP’s and a video of a back pack falling over to show for it. In other words, they got nothing. If you ever have the opportunity to check it out, I hope you have better luck.

  1. Don’t forget one of the rarest things about this building is the fact that it has exactly 13 floors. While most architects would stop at 12, go on to 14 or skip the 13th floor altogether (at least the button for the floor) the architect for the Gwynne liked lucky number 13. He did the same thing for another building in New York that he designed. 11
    The rumor is that the tower room on the top of the building was for the wealthy female owners daughter. It was stated she had “mental and physical issues” so they sent her up there with a nanny to “hide” her from the public. She was a little too “special” for the general public, lol.
