Haunted Statehouse Tours
The Ohio Statehouse hosts an annual Haunted Statehouse Tour. Statehouse staff members and volunteers combine history and legend in the special family-friendly haunted Statehouse tour. Conductors lead visitors through the dimly lit limestone corridors of the Ohio Statehouse by oil lantern light. Visitors pass the ghost of President Lincoln in an unfinished dance with Kate Chase (former Ohio Governor Salmon P. Chase's daughter), hear and see a weeping lady in gray and get a glimpse of a green and ghostly President felled by an assassin's bullet. This historical tour is spooky but appropriate for all members of the family. Tickets go on sale each autumn.
