All night, lights-out ghost hunt of the normally off-limits 143-year-old Old Paulding County Jail.  Hosted by Ghost Hunt Weekends, the night includes a special documentary screening, paranormal investigation of the entire building, and the opportunity to sleep inside the Jailhouse.

Ghost Hunt Weekends is hosting a special all-night lights out ghost hunt of Ohio’s Most Haunted Jail; Old Paulding County Jail. Paranormal fans will have the rare opportunity to investigate this 143-year-old Jail; including secret tunnels discovered in 2015, hidden behind a rock wall and leading to medieval style dungeon cells.

In honor of this event, Paranormal Author and Researcher Chad Morin's new documentary about the jail will be debuted, giving guests a glimpse into the blood-soaked history of the building they're calling home for the night.

Opened in 1876, the Jail is steeped in a dark history of violence, kidnappings, murders, suicides and suspicious deaths. Add this to the daily misery, anger, and fear that inhabited these walls during its more than 130 years of operation and there's no telling what might be left lurking in the dark.

Some paranormal claims reported at the Jail include slamming cell doors, people being touched, shadow figures, objects being moved or thrown and conversations heard from empty rooms. Several visitors have even seen an apparition of an old Sheriff still making his rounds.

In addition to the exclusive screening of Morin's documentary, guests will enjoy an educational briefing on how to conduct a paranormal investigation, a guided tour of the Jail, a lights out ghost hunt of the entire building, and the chance to sleep inside the Jailhouse.

For thrill seekers, avid paranormal enthusiasts or those who are just curious, this event is not to be missed.

Ghost hunt events held monthly into October.
