From burial mounds to haunted hotels, fugitives to river phantoms, Ohio's first settlement is number-one in paranormal activity. Haunted Marietta: History and Mystery in Ohio's Oldest City explores the supernatural side of the state's first settlement. Visit a crumbling mansion from 1855, whose original owner still roams the halls; sit in the plush red seats of an abandoned theatre; and climb an ancient Indian burial mound. Encounter river pirates, fugitive slaves, an axe murderer, jealous lovers, and inept morticians. Haunted Marietta delves into various types of otherworldly phenomena, examines the difference between ghost stories and reports of supernatural activity, and discusses why certain people become spirits. From an 1815 goblin sighting to a bartender's brush with the unexplained, local author Lynne Sturtevant covers it all. Includes photos!
