Formerly known as the Mansfield Reformatory, the Ohio State Reformatory is one of the state’s most notoriously haunted places. The facility opened in the early 1900s but closed before the new century due to inhumane conditions. Countless tales of ghosts, paranormal spirits, and other chilling occurrences have been reported on the property, which is open to tours throughout the year. In fact, this abandoned prison might just be among the most haunted places on earth.
