Sip Wine And Mingle With Ghosts In Don’s Pomeroy House, One Of Greater Cleveland’s Oldest, Most Haunted Restaurants
Cleveland is home to its own interesting history, but the bulk of the area’s personality undeniably comes from the suburbs. If you’re familiar with the Strongsville, Ohio area, you might initially be skeptical that such a developed, high-traffic area ever appeared rural or hosted historic neighborhoods. Nonetheless, in the heart of town is a surprising historic village, and nearby is a restaurant and pub that’s purportedly inhabited by a handful of spirits. Don’s Pomeroy House is said to be among the most haunted restaurants in Cleveland, but don’t let this scare you away. Their atmosphere is elegant and their menu indulgent. The staff is incredibly friendly and so, too, are the patrons. What about its resident ghosts, you ask? You’ll have to pay a visit to find out.
Perhaps members of the Pomeroy family hung around their home so long after their passing to keep on an eye on family members and then to scare off vandals after family finally moved out. And who can blame them for hanging around after the home became a restaurant?! If your home was full of laughter, fun, and delicious dining, you’d probably hang around, too.
