From the 19th to 21st century, the former county poorhouse (now our history museum), has given shelter to numerous residents, both wicked & benign. Orphans, the injured, and criminals have all had a role in sculpting the history of this grand brick building. Enter our labyrinthine halls for an intense wander through the rooms and into usually restricted spaces. Follow guides as you linger in hotspots of spiritual activity, like the old infirmary, and the foreboding cells in the basement. Try to draw out our lingering, ghostly occupants, both charming and terrifying! Whether you're new to ghost hunting or a seasoned investigator, there's something to find in our unlit corridors. Watch & learn how to operate various forms of ghost-hunting equipment from EMF detectors to voice recorders; have your own tools like a flashlight or cellphone? Bring them along and see what you capture. Doors open at 8:15 pm.

Limited to the first 40 people registered! Due to the nature of this program, children under 18 are not permitted. A liability waiver must be signed in order to attend. Need more information? Call 440-639-2945

The Apple Cabin is once again the worst nightmare in Medina County! 24 years of thrills and scares, same location! It is said that anyone who entered past the apple orchard and through the Lodi haunted forest near Medina beware of the worst fate that could await you. The old Smith house on the Ohio property has long been torn down. They say the people who lived there were shot to death and still haunt the grounds. Everyone knew years back that if they went into the haunted forest, they might not return. The elders of Medina County had told everyone that it was forbidden to go past the apple orchard. The haunted forest has been abandoned for years, when people went in they never returned. No one could take a step inside the haunted forest and no one had dared to. No one was brave enough.

If inclement weather is forecasted, please call ahead. Nightmares begin at 7:30pm and tickets are sold until 11:30pm. Dates and hours are subject to change. Admission is $20 for adults and $15 for children ages 6 to 10. Cash only. The Apple Cabin is located at 7665 Lafayette Road, Lodi, Ohio 44254. Call (330) 948-1476 for more information.
