Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Abandoned House

Columbus, Ohio

It is said that whoever lives in this house is savagely murdered by something unknown. After two people were found dead in the 1960s, the house stayed empty until the late 1980s when it was occupied by a cult. Two years later, flashing lights were seen coming from the house; police found eight decapitated bodies. It is said that if one goes to the site, there will be eight ghosts that will carry on conversations with one another. It is also said that the shadow of a body may been seen in a tree near the house.

Yes, this is true. There was a ritual killing in the house, said to be Satanic, but you know how stories get warped over time. I remember hearing about the murders and nobody was ever caught. I know a lot about this because I grew up in Worthington and the house is right next to the Pontifical College on State Route 23, just north of I-270. If you’re heading north, the house is just past the college, up on a hill yet close to the road. If you are familiar with that area before it really started to grow and develop, the house is right at the head of where Lazelle Road came out on Route 23. I believe the Satanic aspect came into this because of it’s close proximity to such a holy place (the Pontifical college), yet there could be some truth to it as well. I have never been in the house. I was too scared. But, you CAN see in some of the windows and it looks like there is a lot of bloodstains on the floor. It could be paint or some kind of prank, but NOBODY will live in that house, and it has been vacant since I was a little girl. People have moved into it and then moved out less than a year later. I was 7 when the cult killing happened. I’m sure you can research it through the Columbus Dispatch archives, or even the Worthington Suburban newspaper.

Yeah the story is a little scary, but then you have the ghetto there. That’s scarier. If you can drive through most of that city at night, i don’t see why you would be scared of that place. Down town is alot worse.

I live by there. My church is a little further down 23, so I pass it every Sunday. It’s actually in the nice suburbs of Columbus. I almost feel like going there right now, because I want to hunt some ghosts. :)
