Real Ghosts of the Athens Asylum

Thursday, October 18
6:00 PM

How many ghosts can haunt a building at once? The Athens Asylum is consistently ranked near the top of the most haunted buildings in Ohio. Every year it draws thousands of visitors hoping to catch a glimpse of a ghost, but who are the real people behind the stories?

As the fifth installment in our Athens Asylum Sesquicentennial Series, George Eberts, long-time Asylum employee, will share stories of the men and women who lived, worked, and left their mark at the Athens Asylum.

This event is free and open to the public, thanks to the generous support of Ohio Humanities and Ohio University. Additional support comes from BDT Architects and Designers, Athens City Historic Preservation Commission, and the Athens County Commissioners.
