Cholera Cemetery

Cholera Cemetery Sandusky, OH 44870

In 1849, a cholera epidemic swept through Ohio. In desperation to escape the sickness, trainloads of people from Cincinnati and other cities sought refuge here. However, with the refugees, they brought the deathly disease. At least 400 of the 3400 residents in the town died and were buried in a mass grave here. Their ghosts are said to haunt the area - angry voices are heard near the graves and lights have been seen along the grassy area.
