Spooky Prospect Place Pictures................

Prospect Place is the 29 room mansion built by abolitionist George Willison Adams at Dresden, Ohio, in 1856. It is the home of the non profit G. W. Adams Educational Center, Inc. located in the Village of Trinway, Ohio, just 1/2 mile north of Dresden.


Prospect Place was a station on the "Underground Railroad" and was used to safely move escaped slaves to freedom. The property is listed on the National Historic Register as the "George Willison Adams House."


Prospect Place mansion is one of the most haunted homes in Ohio. With 150 years of paranormal history including sightings and strange activity this Dickensian mansion stands forebodingly in the rural Ohio countryside. They offer a complete paranormal experience for those willing - spend the night, sleep in one of our meticulously restored guestrooms and expect to be surprised by the more permanent residents (some of whom have been here for a very long time).


Two of my friends and I went down to tour the house last summer and these are some of the pictures that I took while we were there........


These are pictures of the outside of the barn.........


So much history and you can just picture what it must have looked like over 100 years ago..........


The sci-fi television show "Ghost Hunters" visited this same house and it aired back in April of this year.........


The side view of the house.........


This is the view looking out of the back of the copula...........


Pics from up in the ballroom on the third floor..........





The view looking through the door leading out from the second floor hallway......


Pics from inside the barn that is said to be haunted by the ghost of the bounty hunter that was hung from the rafters on the second story of the barn........




The arches in the bottom of the barn where the horses were kept.........



The decorative trim above the windows is made of cast iron......


Not all of the original shutters have survived over the years.......


These wooden corbels are just huge! I kept thinking.....what if one of them comes loose and falls?


The front of the house. The original porch is missing.........






What's more perfect for Halloween than a haunted house????
