Paranormal Programs at Mansfield Reformatory

OSR has a long, documented history of paranormal activity and is a premiere location for all paranormal enthusiasts. The Ohio State Reformatory provides several ways to interact with the macabre history of the stunning limestone architecture of the former prison.

Most of our paranormal programs are conducted in the evening with the assistance of an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Ghost hunting books and merchandise are available through our museum store and online.
