Rich in history and steeped in blue-collar values, Marion, Ohio, is much like any midwestern city, aside from its abundance of ghouls and unexplained phenomena. From well-known landmarks like the mysterious Merchant Ball to largely forgotten locales like the Quarry Street Cemetery, Joshua Simpkins of Spookymarion.com takes readers on a delightful journey through Marion's bizarre history and hauntings. Was President Harding's death forecast by the First Lady's squawking finch—its feathered form now stuffed and encased in the Harding Home—on the eve of the president's ill fated trip to Alaska? Dare to visit the Mongoloid House or see what goes bump at the empty downtown YMCA. Revisit Marion's urban legends and discover little-known ghouls that deserve to be heard.
