  • Tales of hauntings in the village

    Apparitions and ghostly music at Ye Olde Trail Tavern. Loaves of bread flying off the counter at the Sunrise Cafe. Disembodied voices in Antioch’s Main Building. Chairs traveling through the air in the Union Schoolhouse. A phantom walking around John Bryan State Park.
