On July 15th, 1890 at 3:50 p.m., a train car collided with two load cars filled with 800 kegs of gunpowder along the Little Miami Railroad. People as far as six miles away in Lebanon heard the explosion. In a chain reaction, 800 more kegs exploded. When it was all said and done, 12 had died. The ghosts of those who died are said to linger along the road and in the buildings in misty forms and full-bodied apparitions.
