If you travel down a winding road through the thick of the woods, you will eventually come across a bridge, a field, an overgrown foundation, and a short sandstone pillar. This is what remains of the Gore Orphanage, one of Ohio’s most haunted locations. Although it was originally known as the Light and Hope Orphanage, the place earned its nickname from the shape of the land and, later, the gruesome story that accompanied it.
It is said that in front of one particular house, the Ghost of Avenel may be seen walking. The woman is said to wear a long white dress and carry a parasol. Allegedly the woman used to live in the house that is now owned by the Bedford Historical Society.
Many years when the upper level of this building was used a jail, an inmate drew a picture of a pentagon before hanging himself in the shower. Whenever this picture is painted over, the image returns. Other experiences relating to this incident are claims that security cameras have moved on their own and a cold feeling is felt when the ghost passes by. The employees here claim that the ghost is friendly.
Residents of the area have reported hearing both a baby cry, and a horse-drawn carriage passing by. No one knows the story behind the activity, but many have their suspicions. Some claim that raiders took over a passing carriage, killed the adults inside, and left the baby in the woods to starve to death.
If a car is parked on a bridge located inside this park, turn the ignition off, and wait for a few minutes, an old woman in a white dress will appear. She will wave her hand for you to follow her into the woods. No documented account has been made of anyone ever following her.
Violence. Death. Destruction. When you walk onto the campus of the University of Alabama, you are walking into a place where gunfights, riots, and war have left a number of phantoms behind to haunt the hallways and grounds of the U of A.
