Bridgeport, OH

Westbrooke Asylum, Bridgeport, OH

Westbrooke Asylum Haunted House, located in Bridgeport, Ohio, is the area’s only haunted attraction created and operated by media production professionals. At the time Westbrooke Asylum and Medical Testing Facility opened its doors, it was a state-of-the-art medical research and testing facility. It was also known for housing many of the era’s most notorious psychopathic criminals.

Founded by Edward J. Westbrooke, MD in 1956, Westbrooke Asylum began its decline less than a decade later when reports of deplorable conditions, patient abuse and horrific experiments began to emerge. The facility closed its doors on October 13, 1967, after a murderous riot within the asylum claimed the lives of more than 60 patients and 14 staff members.

In 2007, the 40th anniversary of the riot and lockdown, the sanitarium was reopened to the public as a tourist attraction and quickly became known for its alleged paranormal activity. Guided tours are available.

Lockington, OH

Lockington Haunted Fire House, Lockington, OH

The original Lockington Firehouse was built in 1891. When the builders started construction they did not realize that they were building on an ancient Indian burial ground, and many of the builders were killed during construction. Upon further investigation on part of the contractor, he saw what we have already told you, but he did not tell his employees. After the firehouse was finished it was put into use for many years. It was the scene of one of the worst crashes in the history of Lockington, where upwards of twenty people died. And many firemen mysteriously disappeared while they were on duty here; after the 50th fireman disappeared there was a huge uproar in the community that they were in need of a new fire station. One of these community members was the contractor hired to build the firehouse, and he told the community leaders about what he had found out so many years ago. So they boarded up the old firehouse and built a new one across the street. The firehouse stayed boarded up and no one was allowed in until now…
