If you love exploring all things abandoned and haunted in Ohio, you may have heard about a “Witches Tower” hiding in a forest near Dayton, Ohio. (Or even a “Frankenstein’s Tower.”)

The true story behind this curious structure has changed over time—and it actually has nothing to do with witches or Frankenstein. More commonly known as the Stone Tower in Hills and Dales MetroPark, this castle-like structure in Kettering has been the subject of numerous urban legends throughout the years. And while it’s certainly not a “Witches Tower,” it does have a deadly history that makes many visitors believe it is indeed haunted.
