In 1692, Abigail Sibley, an accused witch fled Salem and the notorious trials. She moved west to what is now central Ohio. Taken in by a small tribe of Seneca Indians, legend has it she would heal the sick, enable crops to grow, help defeat enemies and thus became revered to the tribe. Through the years, failed crops, animal mutilations, strange creatures, ghostly figures and eerie lights and sounds that come from these woods gave rise to the legend its the vengeful spirit now known as the Seneca Witch.
As with legends, curiosity seekers would search the woods. Most disappeared. Those that survived talked of a strange cottage hidden in the woods but eventually they went insane. Archaeologists have found relics and ghost hunters report strange occurrences. To this day the woods are considered evil. So now, prepare yourself for a journey into fear. Are you ready to experience the horror that dwells in the woods and come face to face with the Seneca Witch!

70 Year Anniversary of Ohio's Mad Dog Killers Reign of Terror that Included 2 Innocent People in Seneca County

This year marks the 70th anniversary of a 14-day reign of terror that swept through Ohio where 6 innocent people were killed at the hands of two ruthless murderers. From July 9th, 1948 through July 23rd, Robert Daniels and John West, former inmates at the Mansfield Reformatory, went on a senseless killing spree. Sadly, these killings included two from Seneca County.   
Rita Smith’s husband was one of those murdered and the Seneca County Museum has recently received an incredible collection if items from this event, courtesy of Rita’s family. This display will be available until late October, so make plans to see it soon. Viewing these items has a way of connecting you to that day, 70 years ago, and can give you a greater understanding of the pain and sadness that Rita suffered during that event, and for many years beyond that time.
