The subway tunnels beneath Cincinnati are rumored to be haunted. Most of the city's residents don't even know about the unfinished subway system underneath their busy streets. Only a few people know about its ghosts. During construction of the tunnels, some of the workers perished and it is believed that their spirits continue to wander around underground.
The Cincinnati Subway is an unfinished subway system that includes four platforms and a two-mile long tunnel. The project began construction on January 28, 1920 but the city later ran out of funds and the construction abruptly came to a hault in 1927. Only seven miles of tunnels were dug and no tracks were installed.
Since the construction was abandoned, city officials have tried hard to ressurect the subway somehow. In 2002, a light rail system was proposed but was shot down by voters.
Not many people know about the subway system but the ones that do might tell you that the underground tunnels are haunted. Some folks that have explored the subway claim to have been touched by an unseen force. Visitors often get the feeling of being followed or being watched. Allegedly, a few of the construction workers died while digging the tunnels. Their spirits are rumored to still lurk in the subway today.
The Cincinnati Subway System is located beneath of Central Parkway, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
