Tours To Be Offered In “Haunted” Jail

Well now, this is kind of spooky. The for­mer Pauld­ing County jail will soon, accord­ing to plans laid out by it’s new owner, become a new his­tor­i­cal attrac­tion and para­nor­mal research cen­ter. Shelly Burk Robert­son of Indi­anapo­lis pur­chased the prop­erty for $15,000. Robert­son grew up in Van Wert County. She says she has heard a lot of sto­ries about the jail being haunted, and since she was look­ing for prop­erty for para­nor­mal research, she thought it would be a per­fect place. Robert­son plans to offer tours of the jail, which opened in 1876 and was used until the new jail opened in 2007. Robert­son said that a fee will be charged for the tours. All the money raised will go to restora­tion efforts for the building.
