Whether you believe in ghosts, spirits and the supernatural or not, you would probably agree there are places in Greater Cincinnati where most of us would prefer not to spend the night alone. Haunted, maybe, unnerving in the dark, definitely. Here to shed some light on places around town rumored to he home to an other-worldly presence are Phil Nuxhall, historian, author and tour coordinator at Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum; Scott Santangelo, director of operations at Music Hall; and Rick Fenbers, who investigates rumors of supernatural activities around town and reports them on his website, Creepy Cincinnati. Are there any local sites you believe are haunted?
