Haunting Skies at the “Ridges” in Athens,Ohio


I spent a day at the Ridges in Athens,Ohio. First, I toured the Kennedy Museum (CLICK) then on to the haunted and boarded up old TB hospital. Lastly, a leisurely stroll thru the cemetery. I felt “spooked” for a week after that walk. Enough from me here are my skies for SkyWatch Friday.





Next, the old TB Hospital:: (CLICK) AND SEE WHY IT IS HAUNTED


OK one photo from the  KENNEDY MUSEUM:: (CLICK) for more info.


Very late the same day I was at the Millfield Mine Disaster site (CLICK) hence the following photo


Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check out SkyWatch Friday

ANYWHO...The photos are beautiful and yes. haunting ..knowing where you took them.. I actually thought of Shutter Island as I was scrolling...did you see that movie? talk about spooky...

Terrific, fascinating post and photos, Joe! There is indeed a haunted air about the place. Lots of grief, fear, sickness seems embedded in the walls! How blessed we are not to have lived then! Have a great weekend!

Joe I went there when it was still open to visit a patient and it gave me the creeps then so I would really be freaked out going now. LOL! You have been on a good spook hunt lately.
I have never grown Calla lilies from seed before. You will have to keep me updated on them.
Did you get any snow there? We got five new inches today. That is enough and I am all over it now.Old Mans Cave looks pretty though with the snow and ice.
I want to wish you and Linda a Wonderful Christmas.

The skies are very pretty and blue
! The hospital reminds me that the good old days definitely weren't always so good.
