An Anchor to the Past
Part of the intrigue surrounding Betts House is how it remains anchored to the past. When first built, it sat amidst rolling fields of farmland. Now, it sits resolutely among houses on the busy streets of Cincinnati. It perfectly encapsulates the old and the new, with one foot in the past and one foot in the present.
With the title of the oldest brick house in Ohio, it’s incredible that the building is still standing. Centuries of history have passed since William Betts first built the foundation, and the home has stood witness to it all. The Betts House has seen it all from farmland to metropolis, remaining (relatively) unchanged through the years. It’s a perfect remnant of history that everyone should see at least once.
But is it haunted? That’s what our ghost tour aims to answer ultimately. Betts House is more than just an old house. It also possesses a mysterious history dating back to a very different time. It once housed fourteen residents, leaving no doubt this house has some stories to tell. Who knows, you may even see one of the original residents walking the halls, wondering why all these people are in their farmhouse.
