About This Submission

Athens is home to an old Insane Asylum. It is known as the Ridges. It was featured on a FOX TV show "Scariest Places on Earth," . There are tons of haunting stories and experiences. One of a girl who hid from hospital employees who ended up dying in 1978 She was not found for a while and when found she had been dead for a couple of weeks and her body left a stain, still visible today in the right light. Rumor has it if you touch it she follows you back to where you live and haunts you. There are 2 or 3 cemeteries which are said to be haunted. The ridges has been re done to house Lin Hall for Ohio University, but a part of it is still closed and can not be accessed. That is the TB Ward. Do some more research on the Ridges in Athens and Ohio and Im sure you will want to go visit it yourself. Ohio Universitys campus is one of the most haunted campus' in the US as well. A big huanted hall is Wilson hall on West Green. Check it out, its a rush.
