Ghosthunting Maryland
See details
Ghosthunting Maryland
Michael O. Varhola


    All the sites in the book have been chosen with an eye toward several criteria, including how accessible they are to the public, how evocative experience a trip to them is likely to produce, and the extent to which they actually appear to be haunted. A great many in the various regions of Maryland have some connection to the Colonial era, the War of 1812, or the Civil War, all significant aspects of the state’s haunted history.

    Maryland is divided into six regions for purposes of this book: Baltimore, Central, D.C. Metro, Eastern Shore, Southern, and Western. Geographically speaking, Maryland is not a large state. It is, however, among the oldest in the country, and has a rich, varied, and turbulent history that has contributed to an exceptionally high number of haunted sites. Because it is relatively compact, Maryland is in many ways an ideal state for a haunted roadtrip — especially in an era of historically high gasoline prices — and many haunted sites within the same area can easily be reached on a single weekend-long trip.

    Indeed, although my own home is currently in Northern Virginia, on the southern side of the Potomac River from Maryland, its furthest point from me is still somewhat less than 300 miles — as opposed to nearly 500 for some of the most distant points in southwestern Virginia. Note that this outline includes more listings than there will be room for in the book, and that a number of these will either be cut, reduced to sidebars within larger chapters, or listed in the appendix of additional haunted sites.

    As with Ghosthunting Virginia, research revealed early on a striking number of sites reputed by various sources to be haunted. With space in this volume for only a limited number of these, the authors carefully attempted to identify a representative selection that both emphasized variety and a struck a balance between “must include” sites — such as the graveyard where Edgar Allan Poe is buried — and more obscure ones that do not appear in any other books.

Ghosthunting Colorado

Ghosthunting Colorado
Kailyn Lamb


In the 1800s, Colorado quickly became the heart and soul of the gold rush that eventually brought the territory into statehood. Thousands flocked to cities like Leadville in the hopes of finding their fortunes. Many of Colorado's most famous ghosts, such as “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” have their roots in Colorado's colorful mining history. Alfred Packer, the state's sentenced cannibal, also came to Colorado for gold, but there are more than just the spirits of miners here.

The eyes of paranormal enthusiasts have long been on the Centennial State due to the fame that Stephen King's The Shining brought to the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. The stories of Colorado's mountainous hotel seem to have taken on a life of their own, making the building supposedly one of the most haunted in the country. The Stanley, however, is not the only haunted hotel in Colorado. Multiple inns and hotels in Denver alone have histories as sites of brothels, suicides, and other deaths that make their victims decide to stay in their beloved rooms forever. The oldest hotel in Denver, The Oxford Hotel has ghosts aplenty and a “Murder Room” to boot. A bed and breakfast in Capitol Hill called The Patterson Inn used to be the mansion of Colorado's first state senator. The 14,000-square-foot building is made of red sandstone native to the Garden of the Gods area. The mansion is also the source of several urban myths, such as the tale of “Willy,” a satanic undertaker who lived in the carriage house and is said to have kidnapped and killed small boys.

Ghosthunting Colorado also looks outside of Denver, at the Rocky Mountains of Colorado are considered to be one of the best destinations in the country for hiking and skiing. The mountains appeal to spirits, as well, including the ghost of a woman who was supposedly murdered by her husband and who is now said to hitchhike on the roads near Pike's Peak. The world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison is not without its ghosts. Concertgoers and employees have seen the apparition of a miner in restricted areas of the venue, while the Hatchet Lady of Red Rocks terrorizes lovers in the surrounding park.

Author Kailyn Lamb looks at locations throughout the state and dives headfirst into the history behind the ghosts and what has made them stay.

Gateway City: Covington, Kentucky, 1815-2015

Gateway City: Covington, Kentucky, 1815-2015
Tenkotte, Claypool and Schroeder


This bicentennial history of Covington, Kentucky, presents an overview of an important gateway city. At times, this gateway has pointed in different directions, and, at other times, it has vacillated between innovation and complacency. Like other transitions or gateway regions, the residents of Covington have sought their fortunes with the prevailing winds of change. Initially, Covington served as a “Gateway to the West,” then as a “Gateway between the North and the South,” followed by a “Gateway to the North,” and most recently as a “Gateway to Progress.”

Gateway City studies the growth and development of a city within the context of national and regional events, particularly those affecting a border region. Lying on the southern shore of the Ohio River opposite Cincinnati, Ohio, Covington is part of a vibrant metropolitan region of 2.1 million people. With Cincinnati, it shares a common destiny as a transition area, a border region that has acted as a geological, climatological, historical, and cultural “gateway.”

In a 21st-century global economy, where cultures collide, connect and collaborate, the study of how historic border regions have functioned can inform modern decision-making. Border areas like Covington and Cincinnati have long struggled with—and turned to their advantage—the challenges and opportunities afforded by cultural, political, and economic differences. The resultant innovations have fueled their economic prosperity, as well as their cultural diversity.

With the exception of the US-Mexico border region, few transitional areas within the continental United States have been studied for their historical lessons. This book offers a glimpse of the historical themes underlying an interior border region, and one that was vitally important during the Civil War.

Founders and Famous Families of Cincinnati

Founders and Famous Families of Cincinnati
Wendy Hart Beckman


When gazing at the city’s impressive skyline, we too often forget the notable individuals who built these grand and glittering buildings, as well as the nearby museums, parks and neighborhoods we also treasure. Reflected in the character, reputation and even design of our city, the legacy of the early settlers continues on today. Through their efforts, almost always imbued with a civic entrepreneurial spirit, they stamped their mark on our burgeoning regional reputation, while also allowing current leaders to bolster and broaden our national reputation.

Founders and Famous Families of Cincinnati brings to life the founding families’ histories, sharing these intertwined and fascinating tales with readers near and far. A charming history of lives lived large -- truly the Who’s Who (as well as the When and Where) of Cincinnati -- that when considered together, made the Queen City the great place to live and work that it is today.

From its very beginnings, Cincinnati offered an enticing combination of personable welcome and worldly sophistication. At one point, Cincinnati had more native-born residents than any other American city, a testament to the values that attracted and retained its citizens.

As a quick peek into the rich tapestry of local lore, Founders and Famous Families of Cincinnati focuses first on John Cleves Symmes, who founded the soon-to-be-mighty city along the banks of the Ohio River, In time, Symmes’ daughter would marry William Henry Harrison, who later became president of the United States. Their grandson, Benjamin also occupied the Oval Office. Nicholas Roosevelt, another adventurous spirit, developed with Robert Fulton the first steamboat to successfully make the journey all the way down the Ohio River. Nicholas’ uncle was President Theodore Roosevelt’s grandfather. Teddy Roosevelt’s daughter, Alice, married Nicholas Longworth IV, great-grandson of another Nicholas Longworth who had been at one time the wealthiest man in America. Longworth IV’s Cincinnati vineyards and Catawba wine prompted Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to pen a poem dedicated to its honor, calling Cincinnati the “Queen of the West” (but he was not the first to do so). Nicholas Longworth’s granddaughter, Maria, became the first woman to own and operate a major manufacturing business, Rookwood Pottery, a cherished Cincinnati artistic operation that continues on today.

Cincinnati’s familial history is topped off by noting the innovations that have impacted the rest of the world, including these landmark achievements: the first professional baseball team, the first pharmacy college, the first Jewish hospital, the first municipal university, the first concrete skyscraper, the first municipal railroad, and so many more. Read, revel and enjoy.

Cincinnati's Crosley Field: The Illustrated History of a Classic Ballpark
John Erardi and Joel Luckhaupt


    Crosley Field and another Rhodes-Erardi production, Big Red Dynasty, were honored among the top baseball books in the country by Spitball literary magazine and the Society for American Baseball Research. They also co-authored First Boys of Summer and Opening Day. Rhodes' other books are Redleg Journal, Reds in Black and White, and Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame Highlights. Erardi's other book, Pete Rose: 4,192, sole 50,000 copies.

     Cincinnati's Crosley Field presents the field's history through text and more than 150 photographs. The Cincinnati Reds played at Crosley Field from 1912 through 1970, and the ballpark holds an iconic place in the city's history as well as throughout Reds Country. One of the most beloved ballparks in Major League history, Crosley Field played host to the first night game and the first of Johnny Vander Meer's back-to-back no-hitters, as well as four World Series and two All-Star games.

    From the outfield terrace to the "Moon Deck," from Lombardi's "snooze" to Big Klu's biceps, Blackwell's "whip" to Rose's belly-flop slides, the Redlegs to the Big Red Machine, Cincinnati's Crosley Field has them covered in words and pictures. Greg Rhodes and John Erardi also present the great Negro Leagues teams that played at Crosley, as well as the field's many colorful characters, such as longtime announcer Waite Hoyt and the top-hatted vendor known as Peanut Jim. In April 2009, the Reds' Hall of Fame and Museum opens this season's key exhibit, Crosley Field Remembered, and Cincinnati's Crosley Field will be sold at the team's gift shop as a souvenir.
