These 15 Places in Ohio Will Absolutely Terrify You

All fun-filled Halloween destinations and cemeteries aside, Ohio is home to several straight up creepy places that need no witches, prop skeletons or eerie lighting to scare the average passerby. Abandoned, forgotten and decaying, the mere history and appearance of these places will make you think again before you consider visiting someplace you should probably just leave to itself—or maybe that’s just me.

If you so desire, proceed to these locations with extreme caution—no need to disturb what we don’t fully understand.
