CINCINNATI – Our region is filled with legends, myths, fables, folklore and whispers of the paranormal.

For years, these stories have been passed down, changed and adapted. But they all have one thing in common: They’re pretty eerie.

Are ghosts real? All of the 10 major paranormal investigator groups in the Tri-State say: yes.

Before the skeptic in you starts shaking your head, consider these findings from a Nielson Company Harris Poll:

  • 42 percent of Americans believe in ghosts.
  • 74 percent believe in God.
  • 24 percent believe in reincarnation.

Just in time for Halloween, below is a map of the Tri-State’s “Most Haunted” places. With help from blogger Rick Fenbers of and the Hamilton County Ohio Exploration Society, find the spots locals swear they’ve seen ghosts, demons and everything in between.

That is, if you’re brave enough…
