There’s Nothing Most Disturbing Than This Ohio Reformatory…Trust Me

Although it’s not the traditional haunted house experience, this historical reformatory is known for several real life hauntings and paranormal activity.  It’s so well known for these experiences, that The Haunted Prison Experience is featured every October at the Ohio State Reformatory at 100 Reformatory Rd., Mansfield, OH 44905. (The costumes and props just add to the effect.)

But why? What exactly makes this reformatory so creepy? (Other than the fact that it is nearly a 130-year-old prison.)
