I fall absolutely in love with this place Everytime I drove past it. The Rich history it contains, the structure of the present grounds, the extremely old cemetery it harbors, if I could live here I would. I remember decorating this museum for Christmas when I attended Penta, the staff said to stay within their limits because this place is haunted (that sealed the deal for me) I love anything paranormal. And yes, I saw the fingers. For those of you who isn't familiar with "the fingers" go have a look. You will see why. It is truly a sad experience for the poor soul who lost her fingers, but hey ... When Do you ever get to see fingers in a jar?
Got there just as they were closing so didn't get the whole tour. But friendly staff member talked with us awhile. Very well preserved and impressive facility. Current exhibit is on these types of facilities throughout Ohio.
