Where I stayed
The Marblehead Lighthouse, Marblehead, Ohio.
Marblehead Lighthouse is the oldest, continuously operational lighthouse on the Great Lakes. It has been featured on a U.S. postage stamp, has appeared on the license plates of Ohio's drivers, and was recently added to the Ohio State Parks system. Found on the northernmost tip of the Marblehead Peninsula, this popular lighthouse's history began in 1819 when the fifteenth U.S. Congress decided that the area was too dangerous to be navigated without some sort of beacon. The sum of $5,000 was allocated for the construction of a light tower at the entrance to Sandusky Bay at Bay Point, Ohio, hoping that the lighthouse would help vessels travel safely through Lake Erie's nor'easters and the clusters of small islands on the southernmost coast of the lake
Mystery Hill, Marble Head, Ohio
Mystery Hill is a must see tourist trap and has some very unique features of its own. Visitors can witness water running up hill, a pendulum that will only swing to the south, and a ball that rolls up hill and will not roll back down. At the vortex of the hill visitors sense of balance may be pushed to the limit as most people will seemingly change height right before ones eyes. The park also offers a girt shop, picnic tables in the woods, and water balloon cages to provide an escape from the heat.
The Old Stone House, Marblehead Ohio.
The Old Stone House in Marblehead, Ohio is a reputed haunted house and is now a bed and breakfast. Room 11 is suppose to be haunted by a little girl who fell out of the window and fell three floors to her death. Many people who have stayed there claim they have heard flushing toilets on the third floor, also a television on this same floor is usually turned down after the volume is turned up. If you look at my pictures of room eleven you will see orbs in the room. These are the very same orbs shown in pictures in "Ghost Hunter's Guide to Haunted Ohio by Chris Woodyard" and we were lucky enough to catch them on film for our private photos.
It was an awesome B-Day adventure for our daughter and a great time was had by all. And it just goes to show you there are great adventures to have in Ohio.
