Adath Israel Cemetery Ghost Hunt
We went and did a little investigation at Adath Israel Cemetery. This is a Jewish cemetery in Price Hill. In 1840 the cholera epidemic broke out and this cemetery filled up fast. As a result many Jewish communities throughout the area created more cemeteries and this was one of them. This cemetery filled to capacity and the congregation started another cemetery somewhere else in the city and stopped burials here. This cemetery is suppose to be haunted. Most of the stories that I have heard or read about all revolve around the caretakers building. This is a red brick building within the cemetery. People have said that all of the haunted things seem to take place in the basement. They said that a chair will move around by itself. Lights will come on by themselves. Some people have claimed to see a figure in the basement and hear voices when the basement is empty. The caretakers building is not the only haunted spot in this cemetery. People have reported seeing figures walking among the headstones, more so at night. While we were at the cemetery, we did not see an empty caretakers house so I am not sure if it is still there or not. We did see a red brick house that could be the caretakers house now but there is people living in this house and they were outside so I am sure they would not like you coming up to their house to look in the basement window. We walked around the cemetery which is on both side of the road. We did not see anything or pick anything up on the voice recorder. The sad part of this cemetery is that in 2008 a group of dumb asses vandalized several headstones and now the cemetery is watched more closely by the police and neighbors.
If you go to this cemetery or any cemetery for that matter, please have some respect. These are people loved ones that are buried there and it is so sad to see headstones treated like that.
Just because we did not see or hear anything does not mean that you wont. If you would like to visit the Adath Israel Cemetery it is located at 1661 Sunset Ave. Cincinnati, Ohio. Just know that the cemetery does close at 9:00 p.m. so it is illegal to enter it after that time.
