The Midwestern state along with its neighboring states comprise a major paranormal hotspot in the country; chances are, youre never more than a stones throw away from an area where something rather strange has happened.
From the original Native Americans who hunted in the dense forests to the early settlers cultivating the land, the great Buckeye state has been inhabited for hundreds of years. Its hills and valleys are chock full of mysterious and places, especially in the southeastern portion of the state along the Appalachian ridge. One of those places is known as Hocking Hill, an area known by locals to be particularly haunted. During the 19th century, Hocking Hill was bustling with small towns that were settled because of the rapid growth of the iron and railroad industries. Once the industries faded, so did the towns. Little remains other than a handful of scattered settlements, abandoned tracks, and dilapidated ruins, creating the perfect backdrop for haunted happenings.
