The historic and iconic Ohio State Reformatory is a fascinating (and somewhat spooky) destination for both residents and visitors. Built in 1886, the gorgeous Victorian was designed by Levi T. Scofield, an architect from Cleveland. The impressive structure is over 250,000 square feet. The former prison features ghost walks, ghost hunts, and special events.
On the topic of ghosts, Mansfield is the “Haunted Capital of Ohio.” In addition to the Ohio State Reformatory, visitors can also hunt ghosts at the Mansfield Fire Museum, the Haunted Bissman Building, Brownella Cottage, the Renaissance Performing Arts Theatre, and Malabar Farm State Park.
