I’ve heard a lot of stories about a rehabilitation center in Chardon OH. According to a few nurses I know who worked there, a ghost of what appears to be a small child haunts the place. People say that there may have been an orphanage that burnt down around there, and this ghost is someone who died in the fire.
I’ve heard three stories about manifestations of the ghost. First, some staff members have seen a small child standing outside the doors at night. The person who told me this story had not heard of the ghost before, so she didn’t think much of it when she first saw the apparition standing outside. But when she asked a more senior staff member there about it, the person became very uncomfortable and didn’t want to go into too much detail. When she went back to see if the thing was still there, it had left.
The second story comes through a few different people who passed it along, so it’s hard to be sure on accuracy. Basic gist of it is that a janitor or cleaning person was working alone one night when she heard a small child’s voice in the hallway. She had a garbage setup on wheels with her, and when she walked down the hall away from the cleaning cart, she heard the noise behind her again. The story I heard was that she turned around, and saw a small child’s head peaking around cleaning cart, watching her. The person I heard the story from didn’t have many details on what she did at this point, but anybody who knows more should comment.
Third story is just generally that older residents will complain to the staff about a small child interrupting their sleep at night. The way the story was told to me, the elderly residents live on a floor where no children have access. I’m not familiar with the setup of the center or how accurate this is. There’s a few other stories about hearing the ghost calling out late at night outside. If anybody has similar stories please comment!
