Mount Notre Dame High School has been around a long time, it was built in 1860, and originally as a boarding school for girls. Eventually it became a school, at one point it was for grades K- 12, and was also co-ed before becoming the all girl High School it is today. Obviously the building itself has changed over the years as well, between add ons, renovations, etc.
The reason the school is making an appearance here on Creepy Cincinnati is because, like most of these old buildings, it allegedly has a ghost roaming the halls. Sometime in the 40’s, a young girl is said to have committed suicide there on the 3rd floor, and it’s this floor that she is now said to haunt. While she doesn’t seem to cause any problems, reports say she will open all the lockers on the 3rd floor at night, or sometimes turn the lights back on after everyone has left. Supposedly these things still occur regularly.
My biggest problem with this story is that I don’t know ANYONE who would want to spend eternity at school. I mean come on…may as well go to hell, you would probably be happier. Then there’s the fact that the current building wasn’t even built until 1965, and not even in the same spot as the original. Little things, like facts, have a way of messing up a good story. Mount Notre Dame is located at 711 East Columbia Avenue in Reading, Ohio.
Can you visit this location?
This is a private High School. You could always call and ask, but it’s doubtful you would get permission to visit.
