4. The Dent Schoolhouse- Cincinnati, Ohio
What can be creepier than a rundown school as old as the elders in the community? Detention has been FOREVER for the poor souls that crossed the evil teachers.

“The old school house is now said to be haunted with the roaming spirits of the children that were “taken care of” by the Janitor. Rumors are that the Janitor came back after several years of the school house being closed. His body was never found, but his spirit is still said to clean the old building. The spirit is also said to have “taken care of” local trespassers that try sneak a peak at his home in the basement.”
