Worthington Ohio - A Ghost Town

Is Worthington Ohio a ghost town as in deserted?  Not on your life!  Worthington is a thriving Central Ohio community with a history.  I got a big kick out of the Worthington Libraries series of Ghost Stories last fall when I found them.  I found them after Halloween 2007.  I'd posted a couple on my Discover Columbus site last winter... Not scary but a bit grisley ... this is a part of Worthington history I did not know. This is my favorite Worthington Ghost Tour: The Tale of Dr. Morrow   From the Worthington Libraries starring the webmaster at Worthington Libraries, Stefan Langer, as Dr. Thomas Morrow.

Angry mobs of citizens, grave robbers, a missing body from an insane asylum?  I don't believe I had ever heard of the the story of Dr. Thomas Morrow and the Worthington Medical College's demise.  The Worthington Library has a series of videos of Worthington ghost stories that they produced in 2007.  I did not find them and amuse myself with this one until 2008.

 



 

Worthington 2008    "Worthington was founded in 1803 and has grown into a well established community while maintaining its New England atmosphere. Worthington offers a wide variety of homes, both in style and price range. The proximity to the 1-270 outer-belt with Interstate 71 and Route 315 makes transportation to downtown Columbus easy, allows fifteen to twenty minutes driving time at rush hours."

and ghosts too!  Who knew?
