This selection of Ohio Haunted Places focuses on the king of kings of Columbus Ohio graveyards– GreenLawn Cemetery. The gates of Greenlawn Cemetery are located at the end of Greenlawn Avenue, south of the Brewery District, but Greenlawn Cemetery covers hundreds of hundreds of acres,stretching all the way to Harrisburgh Pike and Cooper Stadium.

If you think of the city as the face of a clock,Greenlawn Cemetery occupies the hours between 6:00 am to 7:00 pm.GreenLawn Cemetery occupies hours they change during Summer and Fall seasons.

You can so easy get totally lost in GreenLawn Cemetery,I totally got lost when the first time i went to GreenLawn Cemetery.There are gravel roads split off to three paved roads twists and turns.There are so many directions that you can spend alot of time finding your way around GreenLawn Cemetery.

If this is your first time visiting GreenLawn Cemetery i would recommand visiting GreenLawn Cemetery in the daytime so you can get to know the cemetery a little more before adventuring out at nite time and please carry a flash light and fresh battery or walkie takies if u get lost make sure you have a few friends with you as well.

GreenLawn Cemetery was Established on August 7, 1848,GreenLawn Cemetery quickly began to fill up with Columbus citizens,including many notable local dead people.You’ll find the namesakes of many city streets and landmarks in the older sections, and a whole bunch of Ohio governors.I personally just realized there is a creepy connection that GreenLawn Cemetery was founded on the same month and same day i was born on and totally different year isn’t that creepy.

Mount Calvary Cemetery is located at 518 Mount Calvary Ave Columbus,OH,And Mount Calvary is predominate Catholic Cemetery it was established in 1865. Its boarders the Old Cooper Stadium.
I happened to notice that Mount Calvary Cemetery has different selections for a cemetery i never seen anything like that before.

I just recently took a trip out to investigate Mount Calvary Cemetery to prove if the cemetery is haunted.I was told some colorful stories about some of the people who are buried here some of the stories aren’t for the faint of heart

Anna Marie Hahn,(Anna Marie Hahn is also known as “Arsenic Anna”) she was Ohio’s first female serial killer in the 19th century she was put to death by the electric chair.She had secreted poison in the meals of at least a half-dozen elderly Cincinnati men whom she was milking for their saving accounts.

Harry Chapman he was executed in 1939 for killing a Springfield police officer.I am not sure where hes buried here at Mount Calvary Cemetery i will look more into it.It seems to be there is no information about Harry Chapman i will have to investigate more into it.

Dr.Oliver Haugh he killed his parents and a young brother by injecting them with scopolamine and then set the house on fire with their bodies in the house.He was put to death in 1907,his obituary noting,The felon was buried as he had lived and died,alone and unwept save by his wife.The location of where he’s buried at Mount Calvary Cemetery remains unknown today.

When i was investigating Mount Calvary Cemetery a while back i came across a selection of the cemetery called Cathedral Unconsecrated that’s where i heard they place all of the criminals and etc what doesn’t fit the puzzle why would they have a Nun buried in the Unconsecrated selection of the cemetery did the Nun did something unspeakable to be placed in a spot for those who did things that were so bad.

Children’s Hospital

September 25th, 2008 by dragon

Children’s   Hospital has a room or two that is supposedly haunted. And supposedly the nurses wont go into certain corridors alone at night. In addition, the park next to the Children’s hospital is haunted by a Pink Lady, a ghostly female figure which is supposedly seen in the trees late at night. Kids often report seeing her from their windows. I am not sure if this Pink Lady is in anyway related to the Lady In Gray that haunts the old Confederate Cemetery.
