Fittingly, Ohio is home to one of the most haunted places in the U.S. That’s according to Conde Nast Traveler, which shared a list of dozens of the most haunted places to visit nationwide, including “hotels, abandoned insane asylums, Broadway theaters, and even a city zoo.”
For Ohio, the most haunted places is the Ohio State Reformatory, located in Mansfield. Its “greatest claim to fame” was serving as a filming location for The Shawshank Redemption. Anyone looking to experience hauntings can embark on an interactive tour, or experience a private paranormal investigation. Find more info about why Conde Nast Traveler added it to their list here.
