Haunted Athens Ohio
Welcome To Haunted Athens Ohio, your official source for pictures, ghosts stories, true tales and urban legends related to the haunted or supposedly haunted locations in my hometown. Aimed at being your one-stop resource for information about Athens haunted buildings, cemeteries, businesses and other properties, this site is growing into a complete resource on the completely bizarre, unusual and unexplained.
I’ve lived in the Athens, Ohio area most of my life — just off Peach Ridge near Simms Cemetery, one of the graveyards that makes up the Athens cemetery pentagram. Through the years, I’ve visited these cemeteries and other haunted Ohio locations many times. In fact, I’ve become somewhat of an expert on them.
There are lots of stories on the Internet about the locations I’ve visited, but very few of them deliver the kind of detailed content you need to fully understand these haunted hotspots. Now, I feature these places on Haunted Athens Ohio along with the background information and stories that put them in context. I photograph and write about places as the whim hits me so this is not yet a complete resource, but it’s expanding all the time.
Beginning with Simms Cemetery, I hope to take you on a journey to The Ridges, The Ridges Cemetery, Wilson Hall at Ohio University and Mt. Nebo as well as other haunted locations as I learn about them.
Be sure to check back frequently for more photos and information from me and my friends. And watch out: If you don’t believe in ghosts, I don’t believe you’re exploring your world closely enough.
