This is an old building with a lot of history. Part of the building dates to Civil War times. It was used as a hospital during the Civil War and prior to closing, it was an old folks home. Many people died there over the years. Behind the home is a building that was converted from holding mentally ill patients in the 1800s to a garage. The high bricked in windows are the evidence. In the field northeast of the building are several burial plots (a potters field) for people who died in the home.

Just a short ways from a parking area on the side of the road is a hill where satanic rituals are said to take place. One man who was playing his guitar on the hill was escorted back to his vehicle by 20-30 people wearing black robes. They told him never to return on a Sunday and to never return to the hill again. Also, at one residence close to an old Indian burying ground people have reported seeing a transparent apparition with an Indian-like headdress that dashed across their living room from out of one wall and into another with nothing but a cold ‘chill’ thereafter.
As legend has it, a pirate by the name John Robinson once lived near the Scioto River, just south of Delaware. His castle-like home burned down many years ago, but the ghost remains. Apparently Robinson enslaved a woman to be his lover.
She was sometimes seen walking the banks along the river. She mysteriously disappeared one night, never to be seen alive again. Her ghost now walks the banks of the river. Some have reported hearing bloodcurdling screams coming from the area. When investigated upon, nothing can be found. Robinson was said to have murdered her.
