November and Beyond

By Hallie Statham

October 5, 2017

                Visit the Ohio State Reformatory during our Holiday season and beyond…

                For the first time, this November we will be hosting author and paranormal investigator Sherri Brake for her Ghost Hunting 101 class. Brake has hosted events at the Reformatory in the past and this new event promises to be just as fun and educational. A two-part event, you’ll spend the day learning about ghost hunting and the history of the Reformatory and then return in the evening to actually investigate the building using what you learned during the day. This event will take place on November 18. Please book your tickets in advance.

                From November 24th until December 17th, the Reformatory will be open seven days a week for daytime tours. Wander the self-guided tour route and explore the cellblocks, solitary, and more at your own pace. Or, when available, take a tour with one of our trained guides. Guided tours will be available based on the availability of the tour guides so call ahead to check on a specific date. Remember: the Reformatory doesn’t have heat in the majority of building so wear layers! Hours will be from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, with the last ticket being sold when the gates close at 4. Tickets can be purchased when you arrive for tours or can be purchased in advance on our website

                Looking further ahead, we will once again be hosting our Murder Mystery Dinner Theater next early spring. Keep an eye on our website or our Facebook page for updates and for information about ticketing- these dinners sell out quickly so get them early!

Exciting changes and new events are coming to the Ohio State Reformatory- we can’t wait to show you what’s next!
