The Seven Barns legend has been circulating around Northeast Ohio for years. One of the barns located at Top O' The World is believed to be one of the most haunted places in the area. Local residents often refer to this area as Hell Town.
The Seventh Barn is located at the Top O' The World section of the Hampton Hills Metro Park. E. Reginald and Rhea Adam owned the property from 1942 to 1967, later donating 162 acres to form the 278 acre Hampton Hills Metro Park. In 2010, the park increased to 655 acres.
A killer farmer is believed to haunt the barn and the surrounding area near Top O' The World. The farmer, who had a massive head injury, allegedly went on a killing spree taking out his entire family and livestock with an ax. According to legend, he hung himself in the seventh barn.
The Seventh Barn is located at The Top O' The World, on 1285 Bath Road, in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.
