If commercial haunted houses aren’t your cup of tea, consider visiting one of these three haunted locations in Cleveland, Ohio. Choose wisely and beware; these are places where actual ghost sightings and events have been reported.
1. Franklin Castle
Built in 1881, Franklin Castle was the sight of gruesome deaths under mysterious circumstances. It is said to be the most haunted house in all of Ohio. The house was built for Hannes Tiedemann and his family, but 17 years after the last brick was laid, the entire family was already dead. Rife with tales of hidden passageways and rooms, the house is now a privately-owned dwelling. Passersby report the sounds of babies crying and the shrill of a woman’s scream.
2. Drury Mansion
Drury Mansion was erected by a local millionaire back in 1912. With hallways laid out in maze patterns and an underground tunnel, the house was finally used as a halfway house for convicted criminals. Rumors of hauntings and creepy doings have swirled around the Drury Mansion since it was first constructed. Today it stands empty, but those in the know typically cross to the other side of the street to pass by.
