Ohio Exploration Society
Serious, no-frills website of a group that photographs and documents parks, cemeteries, and historic structures throughout Ohio for the purposes of education and preservation.   One of the best on the web.

Forgotten Ohio
An excellent website for those interested in exploring Ohio's more notable abandoned and haunted places.

Abandoned
Exploration of the historic Ohio river valley never looked so appealing, or so slick.  This well-researched, informative site features some
great information and photos, AND is updated regularly.

Ohio Trespassers
Well-designed, superior website containing fresh information and photographs of historic and abandoned places throughout the region.  Excellent pages on the Huletts as well as Top 'O The World.

Ghosts of Ohio
One of the best and oldest sites out there on Ohio hauntings and legends.

Grave Addiction
As the name implies, this website features exploration and photographs of Central Ohio cemeteries.   The photographs are high-quality and dignified, taken by someone who has a genuine appreciation for these historic monuments.  

The Moonspenders
A unique, well-researched website devoted to the scientific investigation of Cuyahoga Valley hauntings, featuring some area canal landmarks.

Hello Ghost
O.k.  Normally, we don't add homepages to the Links page.  However, this is an exception to the rule.  Hello Ghost is a nifty, interesting little space on the web that chronicles one man's experiments, research and anecdotes involving a strange "entity" that seems to occupy his home in Clermont County.

Haunted Ohio Explorations
Website covering local haunted places like Helltown and Hemlock Road.  Features an interesting exploration of Tinker's Creek.

Paranormal Ohio
Nifty little Xanga page devoted to one guy's investigations and explorations of local haunts.

R.I.P. Ohio
New Akron ghost investigation group.  Website contains some interesting ghostie photographs from local sites, as well as paranormal investigative tips and info.

Haunted Cleveland Tours
Every day is Halloween!  Take a tour of this region's haunted places with Psychic Sonya...if you dare.  She features some great locations, and offers overnight ghostie retreats.  A must for diehard ghost hunters.

Ohio Pics & Legends
Fresh, fun site on Northeast Ohio legends, myths and historic places.  Features some interesting historical places and old standbys, like Marblehead Lighthouse and Gravity Hill.

SpiritWriter.com
Small-but-growing website by author Michelle Colson, who is currently writing a book on the history and investigation of Ohio's haunted places.

Ghosts of the Valley
A ghost hunting website covering Cuyahoga Valley-area hauntings.  Includes some lesser-known haunts, and features photographs and evps.

Ghost Hunters Incorporated (G.H.I.)
This sweet website was found quite accidentally while perusing the Ghost Village website. An excellent, f***ing hilarious site documenting the exploits of a small group of novice Pennsylvania-area ghost hunters.  As their team motto says, if you have a supernatural problem, they have a violent solution.  Expect a documentary on these guys soon. 

Toronto Ghosts and Hauntings Research Society
TGHRS is definitely not another group of drive-by cemetery photoshooters looking for ghosties.  Intelligently written, well-researched, and even *witty*, this website should be the model by which more "ghost hunters" structure their paranormal research.  The group's information articles, and editorials on orbs and fame, are worth a read.  

Obiwan's UFO-Free Paranormal Page
One of the oldest and most extensive national paranormal websites, containing several Ohio ghost stories.

Phantoms in the Dark
Based out of Michigan, this website features some intriguing ghost photography using infrared techniques, as well as EVPs and articles.  Definitely worth a look see.

The ghosthunter's encyclopedia, so to speak, containing a wide range of paranormal reference material as well as one of the most extensive Ohio haunts listings.

Home of the American Ghost Society, focusing on American History, Hauntings and Unsolved Mysteries.  Contains an exhaustive collection of books and other publications, ghost hunter networks, and a state-by-state listing of hauntings and similar oddities.

Finally! A new website featuring nothing but ghost photos.  To provide a more balanced view on spiritography, this website also has a section on fake photos.

Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast
One of this country's most creepiest sites and notorious crime scenes has been turned into a *snicker* "bed and breakfast"?  Hell, yeah!  There's a waiting list of over a year, so book your reservations now.

The Haunted Midwest
As the name implies, this website focuses on paranormal and ghostly activities in the Midwestern States.  This is a great new site featuring a directory and reports that include Ohio hauntings, and offers a sensible approach to ghost-hunting that's off the orb-beaten path.

The Paranormal World
This website covers a variety of paranormal topics, including famous hauntings, ghost pics, EVPs, and even aliens. 

Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization
True to its name, this website contains research and findings by Bigfoot researchers.  Check out the section on Ohio.  Yup, we appear to be Sasquatch capital of the U.S.!  Chew on that next time you go to Top 'O the World.

Haunted Fort Lauderdale
As the name suggests, this website focuses on explorations and investigations of Ft. Lauderdale's haunted places.  Contains some interesting features on historical landmarks.  Don't miss the creepy "Forbidden Cemetery" page.

Kanawha Valley Ghost Hunter Society
West Virginia paranormal research/investigative group.  Contains a lengthy list of West Virginia haunted places.

Garden of Shadows
Many great-looking photos to feed your cemetery fetish.

Ghost Haunts
Newer, sharp-looking site focusing on national and world-wide ghost stories, haunted places, and cemeteries.

Abdullah
Website of the best stoner rock/NWOBHM group in the area.  If you are not familiar with stoner rock/NWOBHM, then it is my personal duty to demand that you immediately destroy your Limp Bizkit and Creed CDs/MP3s and immediately go to this site.  You will not miss that lame, corporate, pre-fab crap.  You may even rediscover your manhood.

Bubba Ho-Tep
Official website of the much-anticipated new movie based upon a Joe R. Lansdale short story.  Imagine...an elderly Elvis and J.F.K. fighting a soul-sucking, cowboy-boot-wearing mummy in a nursing home.  It's been a huge hit on the film festival circuit, and we can't wait for its release here.
