The Terrifying Tour That Will Take You To Cleveland’s Most Haunted Places

When it comes to haunted history, Cleveland does not immediately stand out as one of the creepier cities in the United States. After all, despite a long history that goes back to 1796, our oldest standing building (the Dunham Tavern, which you can learn about here) was built in 1842. Our oldest standing cemetery, Erie Street Cemetery, was established in 1826. Fortunately for thrill seekers, it is neither age nor appearance that makes an area haunted. Thus, Cleveland has many notorious destinations, and you can actually tour some of them in September.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
