The wooded area at the intersection of Marietta Road and State Route 188 is said to be haunted by the spirits of those killed at an inn that used to occupy the site. A reformed pirate by the name of John Baldwin built the inn in the early 1800s. Often times, travelers stopped at the inn on their way from and to the farm market. It was not uncommon for those carrying a large sum of money to come up missing after a visit to the inn. John and his accomplices would murder those with a lot of money and bury them in the woods nearby. The inn and the ground it stood on has been haunted ever since.
