What is the most famous ghost story from Cincinnati?
There are many Cincinnati ghost stories that are told throughout our city. It seems spirits of the past love the Queen City just as much as we do, or perhaps they have unresolved business. One of the most famous ghost stories is that of Imogene Remus, wife of bootlegger George Remus. It is said that the two were about to finalize a not-so-friendly divorce when a car chase ensued and they ended up at the lovely gazebo in Eden Park (that still stands today). It was at this spot that George shot his wife and she later died in the hospital. Imogene had been wearing black to mourn her marriage and there have been many reports of a mysterious woman in black, hanging out in the gazebo today. Have you seen the spirit of Imogene?

Some of the most haunted places in Cincinnati can be found in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. This historic area of our city has had so much happen above ground, but almost as much happen beneath the streets. The tunnels under the streets of OTR, once used in the brewery business, are said to be haunted. Washington Park and Music Hall, also in Over-the-Rhine, come with their fair share of ghost stories. The land was once an orphanage and also a burial site, thus making it a popular stop on any ghost tour around Cincinnati.
