SANDUSKY COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Sandusky County officials
are trying to create a new tourism destination for people interested in the
In the basement of the
Sandusky County Courthouse is a windowless dungeon, dating back to the 1840s.
Recently, multiple paranormal groups deemed the dungeon haunted.
Visitors will soon be able
to take a special paranormal tour of the facilities, called "Dungeon Descent."
The dungeon was built in
1840 to hold prisoners before the first Sandusky County jail was built.
Prisoners sat in total darkness, in cells made of 3-foot-thick stone blocks.
After opening the dungeon
to tours last November, visitors said they felt a surreal presence, so two
paranormal groups came in and gathered evidence of floating orbs in infrared,
and an ominous-looking figure at the end of a hallway.
Visitors will be trained
in paranormal instruments, and will spend six hours in the dungeon, collecting
evidence that will be examined later that night.
Officials say it is great
to embrace local history to draw people to the area.
"History is not just about
a date or a place, history is alive and breathing," said Katherine Rice, of the
Sandusky County Convention and Visitors Bureau. "When you step into the
building, you've stepped back into a piece of time that was before all of us,
so you get to experience what it was like in 1840, and 1850, and 1890. And that
makes it really unique."
The new tours will cost
about $20 per person, and tickets go on sale April 22. Three are currently only
three tours planned this year, and a 25 person limit per tour.
For more information,
contact the visitors bureau at 419-332-4470.
