There is a living history museum within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Some people believe the dead still linger in this recreated 1860s era village. Just about nearly everyone who visits the village thinks it is haunted. Visitors and workers have encountered strange things and many of them have seen the village's ghosts.
The Hale Farm and Village is a living history museum nestled within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The Hale House was built in 1825 for Jonathan Hale and his family. Hale was a Connecticut farmer that came to the area in 1810. In 1958, Clara Belle Ritchie, a descendant of the Hale family, donated the property to the Western Reserve Historical Society for preservation.
The WRHS recreated a small village, calling it Wheatfield. The village is a living history museum and actors recreate situations from the 1860s.
The Hale Farm and Village has guided tours and various programs throughout the year.
The entire Hale Farm and Village is allegedly haunted. The Jagger House, Goldfield House, and Herrick House seem to be where most of the paranormal activity is. Many visitors and most of the staff have ghost stories from their encounters with the village's spirits.
