Ghost Hunts USA to Host Overnight Tours at Ohio's Haunted Old Licking County Jail

Home » Blog » Ohio's Best Weekend Events, OhioHauntedHouses.com News and Updates, Ohio Haunt News


Ghost Hunts USA will be exploring one of Ohio's most haunted prisons - The Old Licking County Jail in Newark. This Gothic style jail is believed to be haunted, and was the site of a number of deaths, including suicides. 

The haunting stories surrounding the jail are mostly surrounding the murder of Carl Etherington, a dry-agent who had been held in jail for his own safety from a lynch mob. Etherington ended up being beaten to death with a hammer after a crowd broke down the jail's gates and took over. 

According to local legend, thousands of people had come to the jail to see his dead body, which had been dragged from the jail and tied to a utility pole. Paranormal investigators have checked the place out, and Ghost Hunts USA will be doing the same on June 21st and November 22nd of this year.
