Taft Museum of Art - Real Haunted Place
- 316 Pike St.
- Cincinnati, OH
- (513) 241-0343
Martin Baum built this museum back in 1820 and it is rumored to be the home to several spirits. The most famous one being Annie, the wife of Charles Phelps Taft, half brother of President William Howard Taft. The building was donated to the city by them in 1932. Annie apparently wears a long pink gown and ghosts are said to linger at night, calling people's names, tapping them on the shoulder, and knocking things down in the gift shop. Ghostly sounds of a baby crying have also been heard.

Beautiful with a Haunted Vine
I was lucky enough to walk around this place alone. Beautiful art adorns the walls, and the architecture is something to marvel at. But- there is definitely a somewhat creepy vibe. The air is thick and seems almost charged with electricity. While I didn’t see any ghosts I definitely felt a presence in the dining room. When I walked in I stopped in my tracks and the air became cold and wet. It seemed as though someone was standing in the corner looking out the window and I had surprised them.. beautiful and haunted for sure ! According to the woman in the gift shop there was recent activity of things flying off the shelves and many stories of full blown apparitions talking to the janitorial staff at night...Posted 4/20/21
