10/5/2016: Sherri, a descendant of one of several mysterious drowning victims of Punderson Lake, wrote in with this bit of fascinating historic information. It seems that Punderson Manor has not given up some of its dead.
10/4/2016: Kallie shares her experiences as a student at haunted Muskingham University.
Not sure if you’ve heard about this school before, but many other paranormal sites list it and as a current student I’ve experienced a lot of freaky stuff too. Continue reading
10/13/2015: Kim S. shares an alarming image she captured while taking pictures of her family. Could it be a female spirit with an unexplained connection to the property, as one “medium” has theorized?
On August 27th, 2013, I captured this image by accident in one of the Cedar Point Cabins upon entering. I was taking pics to send to a friend of the cabin layout. I had just entered and asked my family to stand to the side so I could get uncluttered pics.
The television was off as we had just literally walked in – I have had it looked at by a well known Medium and he has validated it and claims it to be a woman with a connection to the property.
The first two will be of the image that I captured (not knowing at the time), a zooming in of the face.
You can see my reflection snapping the pic in the photos (in the television) and then the spirit in there. Please note when reviewing my pics – the remote is clearly still sitting on top of the TV – as I stated, we had just walked in the door.
The next photos are ones I tried to take after seeing it to validate it and show the TV was off at the time and then with it on, etc. I also have a pic of where I was standing to show all angles and that the face blocked reflections of the futon couch.
[Editor’s note: Comparison photo of TV off.]
[Editor’s note: Comparison photo of TV on.]
There was no way of redoing that pic with the image – I tried to debunk it with my follow up photos – which clearly show our belonging having been moved into the upper loft, TV on and off and a shot of the space I stood in – in front of the window. It freaked us out.
I only noticed it was there about 20 minutes later when I zoomed into the photo to make sure my daughter had not stuck her tongue or “finger” out at me so I could forward to my friend in Colorado.
I haven’t been back since that trip – but am returning this weekend Oct 9-11, 2015 for Halloweekend. Wish me luck!!!
Horror Society’s Most Anticipated Title of 2015
Gore Orphanage Announces World Premiere
“Some things are worse than losing your family”
April 25, 2015-Sandusky, OH– The world premiere for Horror Society’s most anticipated film of 2015 will be held at Sandusky State Theater in Sandusky, Ohio, just 20 minutes from the location of the most popular urban legend in the state of Ohio, on July 11th with events on the 10th and 11th.
The film stars Maria Olsen (Percy Jackson/Paranormal Activity 3/Starry Eyes), Internet Tycoon Bill Townsend, Keri Maletto (Home Shopping Network) and introduces a trio of amazing child actors Emma Leigh Smith, Nora Hoyle and Brandon Mangin Jr. It also stars five Cleveland natives Rick Montgomery Jr, Jeremy Kaluza, Brooke Bellaurdo, Chris Bores and Cari Lynn Pisano.
The premiere will be attended by Maria Olsen, Emma Leigh Smith, Sandusky’s own Miss America Jackie Mayer (whose son Bill Townsend stars in the film) and the film’s stunt coordinator “The Franchise” Shane Douglas. Also in attendance will be the Director Emily Lapisardi and her husband Executive Producer Cody Knotts.
The film is a female-centered horror story directed by Emily Lapisardi in her directorial debut. Filmed in 2014 in Scottdale, PA, the story is set in the 1930’s and follows the life of Nellie, an orphan, who is brought to Gore Orphanage and discovers quickly that some things are worse than losing your family.
This is the fifth film produced by veteran independent producer Cody Knotts (Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies) and was filmed in Scottdale, PA with a cast of over 20 local children in addition to the actors listed above. Knotts has worked with such horror icons as Doug Bradley and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper in the past.
The film was a husband and wife collaboration of Mr. Knotts and Ms. Lapisardi. Mr. Knotts wrote the film to impress his then fiancée, who was inspired by a road sign in Ohio during travel for Knotts’ film Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies.
Here’s the trailer:
5/15/2015: So what is Edwin Shaw Hospital like at night? Tina is here to show you.
I have never went out and did something like this before. This place was pretty creepy. This was just a couple of the pictures I took.
Feel free to post. I’m going back to see what I can get in the Sunshine Village and cemetery area tonight. Will share if I get something good!
8/26/14: Kristen and her friends visited the Kirtland Crybaby Bridge late one night, and got what they were looking for. Or did they? Check out her photo and decide for yourself.
I went with two other guys to cry baby bridge in Kirtland. We were teenagers looking for a scare or the truth, the usual teenage stuff.
I brought my camera with me and we stopped on the bridge. It was raining outside so we stayed in the car. We didn’t know exactly what would happen so most of us were nervous just being there at 10:30 at night. It was pitch black and you couldn’t see anything.
I took my camera and had the flash on. I snapped a few pictures all about the bridge from the car. I took one picture of the creek in the woods that were closed off to the public. I happened to catch a strange image in the picture. It was a white orb seemed to be moving even though I had the camera very still. And it had green tint in the middle of this orb.
I showed this to the two guys I was with and they freaked out and we left ASAP.
I wanted to see if anyone could debunk this photo but I cannot come up with any logical answers
When you go to Cedar Point this summer, be sure to check out its newest ghostly attraction. If you are confused about which Cedar Point ghost we are talking about, Rich shares photos to help you identify the right one:
My wife took these photos at our stay at the Breakers Inn at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. In the first photo, a young boy is seen in the right side of the picture. You can also see my wife’s reflection in the left. There was no little boy anywhere near her when she took this picture.
She then took another photo a few minutes later after she looked at the photo and saw what she captured.

There are other places that are supposed to be haunted on Abbeyville Rd.
4/23/10: Michelle’s encounter is a grim reminder that the spooks don’t come out only at night.
I was reading your bit on the bridge on Egypt road and the hair on the back of my neck stood up. Continue reading
4/2/09: Dirt Lawyer waxes nostalgic as he fondly recalls Melon Head campfire tales and spooks. Other story tellers may have their killer with a hook for a hand. In NE Ohio, we have our Melon Heads.
In the 1960’s and early 1970’s our camp counselors at Red Raider Camp in Novelty/Russell Township on the western edge of Geauga County would horrify us with campfire tales of the Melon Heads when we’d camp on land owned by the Metallurgy Society. Continue reading
