Cincinnati SubwayI could sit here for hours and write about the never completed Cincinnati Subway tunnels, but I’m lazy, and just looking for an excuse to post some pictures. If you want to know the history and facts about it, and see plenty more pictures,  visit Cincinnati-tranit.net. They can tell you the story alot better, and in depth, than I could.

A Map of the Tri-States most haunted places

Here’s a map put together by WCPO’s Maxim Alter of several of the areas creepy or haunted locations. This is a great resource for visiting the local haunts (especially since I usually forget to post directions on here). BUT…we don’t endorse trespassing at these or any other location.

Everyone has their favorite ‘haunt’, that place they think of when someone mentions ghosts or hauntings, or that place they used to take their friends for a scare when they were kids. But what are the most popular spots? Cincinnati certainly has plenty of supposedly haunted or evil locations to choose from, but which are the most popular?

The Beverly Hills Supper Club Site

Beverly Hills Supper Club Site

No ghost stories here (that I’ve heard of), but plenty of tragedy. On this site, on May 28th, 1977, the Beverly Hills Supper Club caught fire, killing 165 people and injuring over 200. The Beverly Hills was a major attraction, about  two miles south of Cincinnati in Southgate, Kentucky. It drew talent from all over the country, and was a popular nightspot and illegal gambling house as early as 1937.

The Golden Lamb

The Golden Lamb

The Golden Lamb, The oldest Inn in Ohio, began operating in Lebanon in 1803. The current building housing the Inn was built in 1815, with additional floors and other renovations coming years later.  Several Presidents  have stayed there over the years, as well as writers like Mark Twain and Charles Dickens. Along with boasting a long list of famous guests over the years,  The Golden Lamb also has it’s share of ghost stories, but I guess after being around over two hundred years, that’s to be expected.

The Loveland Castle / Chateau Laroche

Loveland Castle

Chateau Laroche, or Loveland Castle as it’s more commonly called, is actually a pretty cool place. Built by hand, by one man, over the course of 50 plus years…that’s pretty impressive. In 1927, a man named Harry Andrews bought some  land along the Little Miami River in Loveland, to use as a place for his Sunday School class of young men to swim, fish and camp. At first, the boys slept in tents, but after a few years, Harry had the idea to build a few ‘stone tents’ using rocks from the river. Harry, who had a love for the olden days of Knights and castles, then , formed the Knights of the Golden Trail. Basically a Boy Scout troop based on the Ten Commandments and the principles of  knighthood. Since all knights need a castle, he took the idea of his stone tents a step further, and on June 5, 1929, Chateau La Roche was begun.

Let’s Talk About the Devil’s Church

The devils church

Hidden in the woods in Clermont County, in an area called Peaceful Valley, sits what is referred to as The Devil’s Church. Some say it’s an old warehouse that’s now used by Satanists, others that it’s a house, and when you drive up to it, there is always candles burning in the windows, the number of which is equal to the number of people in your vehicle. Add to that the claims that if you go looking for the church after dark, you will be chased off by those that worship there, or in some cases, they will try to take you…makes for a pretty creepy story.
