Historic Stoner House - Westerville, Ohio - it was built in 1852 by George Stoner as an inn and tavern. It also was a station on the Underground Railroad. There was a ‘hidden’ room in the basement where the runaways would hide out till they could make their way up to the handy house or the Sharp house. There have been several people independent of one another witness a Shadow figure coming in the back door on the 2nd floor porch. There has also been photo evidence caught of a light anomaly.
Henry Corbin opened a saloon in dry Westerville in 1875. The citizens responded with acts of vandalism and by eventually blowing it up. This building has housed a few stores over the years. As a child it was fun to shop in these stores knowing the building once housed something of such scandal in the city. Today it is a bike shop.
Ever hear the Christmas holiday song "Up on the Housetop"? Charles Hanby wrote this song, and his little colonial house, built in the 1830's is located at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio. I pass this house while walking to my class. I love the simplicity of the architecture...so restrained, yet so stately.
