Time for a Change

It's October and, of course, that means it's time to focus on haunted places and things that go bump in the night! This year brings a change in our format due to some much needed updates, so look for lots of fresh haunts very soon! A map of the location of the haunt has been added when possible in each entry to make it easier to find them, but please remember many of these are private property.

Fresh Haunts

Shore House Bar & Grill

This Point Pleasant establishment has existed, under various names, since 1870, and for at least the last few decades, has also been home to at least one ghost. Over the years, the establishment supposedly has been a hotel, a brothel, and a temporary funeral parlor after a disasterous ship wreck in 1846. The vessel involved, the John Minturn, floundered off the coast and dozens of lives were lost.

Dr. Zimmerly's House of Horrors

I have no idea if there has ever been any trace of ghostly activity at the former residence of Dr. Harry Zimmerly, but based on the history of his activities in his rural community, it would certainly not be surprising if the place was filled with supernatural beings. 

Demented "Ghost" in Churchtown

During the early summer of 1914, residents of the small town of Churchtown in Lancaster County were frightened by the nocturnal visits of an unearthly sort.
