    Ep. 446 - Southgate-Thompson House

    Ep. 446 - Southgate-Thompson House

    The first image we saw of this place featured this grande dame of a home at night with uplights illuminating the front. With its concave mansard roof and center three-and-a-half-story tower, we could imagine the Addams Family feeling right at home within the walls. For 200 years it's sat above Newport, looming down over the Ohio River. Today, it is a music venue and place for the arts. Stories claim there are at least three spirits in this house. The city of Newport itself has ties to gangsters and a few other haunted places as well. Join us as we explore the history and hauntings of the Southgate-Thompson House and Newport, Kentucky! The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Mike Rogers and features The Leatherman and This Month in History features the discovery of Sue the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

    Ringwood Manor

    Ringwood Manor

    The Ringwood Manor that stands today was constructed over a period of a hundred years and features a variety of architectural styles. This was a country estate for a number of industrialists who spent their summers in Passaic County, New Jersey. The Ringwood area was sacred to Native American people and one has to wonder if digging into the earth and pulling out resources from an area like this can cause supernatural activity. Is that why there are spirits here? Join us as we explore the history and hauntings of Ringwood Manor! The Moment in Oddity features The Giant's Playground and This Month in History features Hiram Bingham visiting Machu Picchu for the first time. Our location was suggested by Todd Bouverot.

    Haunted Cemeteries 23 and That Last Ride

    Haunted Cemeteries 23 and That Last Ride

    Cemeteries are the final resting place for many people. However that final spot is decorated is a matter of money and preference. All burial plots are important whether that patch is adorned with a simple flat plaque or an audacious mausoleum. We have found that many of these "cities of the dead" are haunted. In this episode, we cover cemeteries located in Pennsylvania, Maine, Australia, Indiana, Tennessee and Michigan. And then there is that little detail of how one arrives to that final resting place. A hearse usually gets the job done. Cheers to that final ride! The Moment in Oddity features Eliza Huger's Grave and This Month in History features activist Wobbly Joe Hill convicted and sentenced to death.
