This Creepy Asylum In Ohio Is Still Standing…And Disturbing

The only thing more eerie than creepy tales about old insane asylums are old insane asylums with creepy tales that are still standing. Ohio has a rich haunting history, and The Ridges (located in Athens, Ohio right next to the Ohio University campus) was once home to one of the state’s most infamous former insane asylums.
