A Haunted Castle in Cleveland… because all great castles have their ghost.

(Happy Halloween)

Franklin Castle has seen a varied history and is said to be haunted to this very date. With a sorted past such as Franklin’s Castle but with the beauty it possess it is truly a landmark piece. One fine piece of architecture that I truly hope will be around for a long time.

‘’Franklin Castle is a historical house on Cleveland’s west side. The building has four stories and more than twenty rooms. It is purported to be the most haunted house in Ohio. [1]’’ ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin_Castle ) 

There is mixed stories of its current status and this in the only website that I can find that offers tours. (anyone that would like to add information is welcome to do so)
