The Eden Park in Cincinnati is believed to be haunted by a woman that was murdered there. Some of the park's visitors have witnessed a ghost of a woman near the gazebo. She is often seen wearing all black and disappears when anyone gets too close. Weird things have been encountered in other areas of the park. People often report seeing strange shadow figures and odd glowing orbs near the Ohio River.
The Eden Park is situated around Cincinnati's water reservoir and overlooks the Ohio river. Government officials purchased the property in 1856 to use for the city's water supply. The land eventually became a recreation area. The dual-purpose park was officially established in 1900.
On October 6, 1927, a murder occurred in Eden Park. George Remus, a well-known Cincinnati lawyer, shot and killed his wife, Imogene. Remus was a prominent citizen and a famous bootlegger. After doing a two-year stint in federal prison for bootlegging, he became enraged with his wife for taking all of his money and having an affair. While on his way to court to finalize their divorce, his car ran hers off of the road. Remus then fatally shot Imogene in front of their daughter, Ruth. In court, Remus defended himself and got away with the crime by pleading insanity.
Visitors of Eden Park often encounter a woman in a black dress near the gazebo. When they get closer, she vanishes. Some people believe that the lady is the ghost of Imogene Remus. There have also been sightings of strange floating lights in the park.
The Eden Park is located at 950 Eden Park Drive, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
