Visiting some of the spookiest and disturbingly creepy places this year can make your journey or vacation a memorable one. The Ridges, in the state of Ohio is a famous and open for tourists’ spooky destination which you can check out.
The Ridges was originally known as the Athens Lunatic Asylum and yes, this is where the plot thickens.

According to the legend, many disturbed patients used to be kept here and hundreds of lobotomies were done on them. Why; because the patients used to masturbate and have epilepsies. With no way to stop this, the doctors chose to lobotomize these patients. According to the story, a female patient managed to escape from her room and was missing for 6 weeks. Her body was found decomposed later in a room where they say the stain of the decomposed rotting corpse is still there. Weird sounds and flickering lights and laughter have been reported in that area. Right out of the script of Grave Encounters? Sounds like it! According to the British Society for Psychical Research, this area is one of the top haunted places in the world, standing at 13th position.
