Here in Ohio, there’s no shortage of creepy places, chilling haunts and bizarre occurrences that remain unexplained. (If you love exploring and investigating all of these things, then you’ll want to check out our haunted road trip here.)
Our small towns are no exception. There is one tiny town, however, that’s more haunted than the rest. Within Wayne Township in Warren County, you’ll find the village of Waynesville. It’s a quaint, historic town with a population of approximately 2,834—but it’s rumored to have more than 30 haunted places and an incredibly creepy past.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Have you ever been to Waynesville before? If so, did you have any ghostly encounters? Share your thoughts and experiences with us!
