I have always been a bit of a skeptic. If someone said they saw a ghost I would always be the one thinking there has to be a logical explanation for what you THINK you saw. If they had a picture of "orbs" or of a figure I would always say, "You know some cameras don't take pictures well in certain light." What I'm trying to say is, I didn't believe that ghosts or hauntings really existed. Until it happened to me. Before my wife and I bought the home we lived in now, we rented a home on Belmont Street while we were waiting for our house to be ready. We called it our "temporary" home. So one night we had my wifes daughter over to stay the night. We were all just hanging out talking and so forth. We decided to walk outside on the porch because we heard fireworks going off and wanted to see if we could see them. Now, if you know where Belmont street is you know that the Ashland Cemetary is on that road. My house was right across from it. I could look over and see the cemetary when I was on my porch. As we all stood there looking toward town (where the fireworks were coming from) something caught my eye in my peripheral vision. I turned quickly to see a white form on the cemetary walking very slowly. I (being the skeptic) almost dismissed it. Then my wifes daughter said "I see it too". She saw the reaction I had and it had caught her eye. She looked to see what I was looking at and sure enough, she saw it too. When we got back in the house (faster than we came out by the way lol) my wife said she didn't believe us. There couldn't have been anything there she said. So we walked back out to point it out to her..it was gone. I still can't tell you what exactly it looked like except that it was a white form. It walked very slow and was walking toward that statue of that lady. It was under a tree but that doesn't really say much because there are a hundred trees there. Just trying to tell all I can remember incase anyone wants to go investigate. Upon further investigation I have ran across stories both on the internet and from people at stores near by and all that, and they confirmed that it is indeed haunted. There are several stories online. Do a search and you'll find them. One is on a site called something like strangeusa.com or something like that. Sorry to ramble. Just wanted to share.

Nothing in Ashland has portrayed any findings for me. However, alot of people has said the Paramount is haunted but never investigated. But, we have had some very cool things happen in Ironton. Lake Vesuvius is pretty creepy and will get your adrenaline going. One night in Jan. of last yr we went down to the boat docks at 2 in the morning. The story is a woman in whit comes by the docks, that didnt happen. But when we left, we passed a little boy walking, may I remind you its 3am and snowing. After we passed we turned to look back and he stopped and looked as us then vanished. My favorite is the old cement factory. Saw a woman in the tower staring at us. Very scary, but cool

Visit the rooms of the cheap hotels in the downtown area. The ghosts of pillheads past inhabit every room.

Actually Harbor Hill apartments are up on the hill, and it's been in the newspaper, that part isn't a secret. The crisis center is not up there. The old tb hospital is apartments for longer term stays while they get on their feet
Just curious

Big Truth Tellah,

Um, excuse me. But yes they are real. I photographed one at Gettysburg the last time I vacationed there. It is on my laptop with my other pictures. Where is the cement factory in Ironton by the way?
