Tour Preview: Where You’ll Go

Cincinnati Music Hall

Before it was built in 1877, nearly every square inch of the Cincinnati Music Hall was filled with human remains. Formerly a Potter’s Field holding 10,000 bodies, the music hall comes alive at night with ghastly apparitions and phantom sounds.

Washington Park

In 1988, over 200 pounds of bones were uncovered in this park, where an 1830s orphanage and asylum once stood. Many locals avoid visiting Washington Park a

The Betts House

The oldest brick building in Ohio, the 1804 Betts House is haunted by the Children of the Betts family. Refusing to move on from their familial home, they are often heard chuckling during tours of their historic home.

The Hauntings of Cincinnati

One of Ohio’s most populous cities, Cincinnati, has had a pension for unbridled growth and, in effect, attracting death. Since its founding in 1802, “Cincny” has grown into a metropolis full of theatres, churches, music halls, and bars that remember the old days a little too well. By the mid-19th century, the city had become full of overgrown cemeteries. Today, many of the city’s most famous buildings sit atop these hallowed grounds.


The 20th century brought new populations into Cincinnati’s mostly German demographic. The cultures shifted, but the old establishments remained the same, and conflicts and murders changed the city’s face. Prohibition brought organized crime into the fold, and underground tunnels were utilized to transport liquor. Many hold the spirits of victims caught in the crossfire of this dangerous time.


Alongside the city’s beauty lies an undercurrent of murderous memories and terrifying tales. Join Cincinnati Ghosts as we uncover the true haunted history of The Queen City.


The Most Haunted Places in Cincinnati, OH


The ghostly world seeps into all aspects of Cincinnati life, seemingly impossible to escape. Take Bobby Mackey’s Music World, for example. Laying on the edge of Cincinnati city boundaries, Bobby Mackey’s was once a slaughterhouse in the 1850s that now claims to have a portal to hell and is home to a slew of demonic activity—Sedamsville Rectory and The Buffalo Ridge Crematorium both experience similar unexplainable and demonic phenomena.


No location in Cincinnati seems safe from the terrors of the otherworldly. Lick Road is a popular haunted destination in Cincinnati, said to be inhabited by the ghost of a girl named Amy, whose footsteps can be heard at night. The Stenton House, located in the Clifton neighborhood of Cincinnati, is an old Victorian mansion home to a ghost doomed to repeat a tragic suicide. Cincinnati Ghosts invites you to explore all the spooky wonder lurking around every corner of the city.
