Is Music Hall haunted?

Jul 10, 2015

Cincinnati’s Music Hall is one of the most iconic buildings in our city, but is it haunted?  As Lee Hay learns from guest Judy Knuckles, you can experience the dark corners and cavernous depths of Music Hall by taking a Guided Ghost Tour.

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?

Scaredown Facebook page

I am a big fan of Halloween and scary movies so I’ve been to a lot of haunted houses in my time.  In my experience, they usually involve somebody clutching onto you as you guide them through a semi-dark maze that is dotted with dizzying strobe lights and lots of plastic body parts soaked in fake blood while people in creepy clown masks or mad scientists jump out at you from various hidden corners.

But then there is SCAREDOWN, located in Waynesville, OH.  SCAREDOWN is not your typical haunted house. According to their web site, their goal is to “make you lose control of every bodily function you have.”

Iconic local music legend Bobby Mackey is in the studio with Brian O’Donnell in advance of his March 9 appearance at the main branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. During that talk, he’ll share stories of his music career and of his haunted nightclub in Wilder.
