Ghost Stories and Local Legends:

Twin City Opera House

Twin City Opera House McConnelsville, OH 43756

Ghosts have been seen and heard within this building that had its debut as an opera house in 1892. A ghostly usher still walks the building and the sing-song voices of women linger in the hallways.

Captain Hook's Grave

Brick Church Cemetery Stockport, Ohio 43787

Captain Isaac Hook is buried here in a unique, rounded grave. He didn't get along with his wife and before he died, he had a mausoleum built with a rounded roof so his wife couldn't "dance on top of his grave."
