Supernatural Lore of Ohio (Paperback)
Ships from Warehouse
A rich vein of bizarre and uncanny tales snakes through Ohio's cornfields and cityscapes. In the earliest days of statehood, dark reports spoke of witches causing feathers to form a deadly ring in one's bed, magically strangling its sleeping victims. For years, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln's funeral train rolled through Urbana, a small town in the center of the state, and caused clocks and watches to stop in its wake. A vampiric entity was said to haunt a strange cabin in the Black Swamp, and a werewolf reportedly roamed a Defiance train yard. Join Cincinnati historian Steven J. Rolfes on a tour of Ohio's strangest supernatural lore, from wailing banshees to the devil himself.
