Is Wells Township Haunted house ACTUALLY haunted?

Jefferson County

BRILLIANT, OHIO (WTRF) — The Wells Township Haunted House is well known as one of the top haunted attractions in the tri-state area. But what some folks might not know is, it’s more than just a show. The house is… actually haunted.

If fact, a crew of YouTube documentary film makers recently toured the house.

Each year thousands of people make their way through the Wells Township Haunted House. Looking for a scare, folks never leave disappointed.

But what they don’t know is they are not alone. The house has quite a history.

That’s one of the reasons that we chose this house for the attraction. It was the aura, the atmosphere this place had. It was that place in town you didn’t want to go.

The house was built in 1836. Because of its size and proximity to the Ohio River it was used to store bodies of soldiers killed during the Civil War. For years, people who were employed at different businesses housed in the building recalled hearing strange sounds and noises.

I didn’t believe in the paranormal until I got in this building. You hear things and people talking to you and you’re the only one in the building and they are calling you by name and they are picking at you, and it’s like they are bullies.
