Cemeteries are places where the imagination can run wild, even though most are absolutely beautiful and lovely in broad daylight. Allow us to paint a picture: perfectly manicured grounds and rolling green hills; lily pad-dotted lakes and stately trees; colorful flowers and fluttering flags as far as the eye can see. This is not a description of a botanical garden or city park; rather, this is a description of a cemetery. And not just any cemetery, but Spring Grove Cemetery, one of the most haunted cemeteries in Ohio.
- The park's 700 acres don't just contain gravesites and mausoleums; there is also a beautiful arboretum and walking paths that invite guests to come and wander -- and reflect.
- But as you traipse across the grounds and gaze into the reflective pools, you might get the feeling that you're not alone.
- Visitors frequently report sightings of ghostly figures, as well as the sense that they are not alone among the headstones and monuments.
- In one section of the cemetery, there have been stories of strange white wolves that roam around, keeping an eye on those they see.
- People have also reported seeing figures appear and then quickly disappear -- these happenings are not limited to the darkness and have even been reported by visitors during the day.
