She has a love of travel and does so frequently, though she believes that home is where the heart is — she continues to work in and around Cleveland as a digital content specialist to this day, working on everything from commercial scripts and social media posts to grassroots marketing initiatives.
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.
Cleveland hides many secrets, one of which is that certain souls still wander the streets long after they have left their bodies. The stories that Clevelanders whisper are haunting and creepy, and many are even based in fact. What is your favorite local legend?
