Brown County Ohio Ghosts and Hauntings - Calico Lady



Calico Lady of Old Lafferty Road
Ripley, Ohio 45167

The ghost of a three-fingered old lady and her cats haunt the old Lafferty Road and the old building at the end. In the 1970s, teens used to drive here and yell "Calico Lady" three times to be chased by the ghost. Now the road is closed and impassable by car because the old bridges are out. Some say you can still see her sitting on the bridge on the corner of Old Lafferty and Chicken Hollow if you call her name. You can still hear her cats yowling far off into the old road.
