Watch out if you hike near the Scioto march -
in 1925 farmers captured a 75-pound timber wolf
Welcome to Bluffton’s dark and stormy night. One of the crepuscular prowlers you will meet this week if you attend one of the three Bluffton ghost story presentations by Fred Steiner is this 75-pound timber wolf.
It is believed to solve the mystery of the loss of large numbers of livestock in rural Ada in 1925.
Described as leaving half devoured carcasses, the timber wolf was found at the edge of the Scioto marsh and had run at large for two years.
Here’s the ghost story presentation schedule:
• Tuesday, Oct. 17, 6 p.m.
Bluffton Public Library, lower level
• Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2:30 p.m.
Bluffton Senior Citizens Center
• Wednesday, Oct. 18, 7 p.m.
Ada Public Library
Other stories in the presentations include a Pandora and Bluffton UFOs, the story of a phantom pain, a Riley Creek mystery, a man who shot at the ghost of his wife, the mystery surrounding Bluffton's Revolutionary War veteran, the story of a woman almost buried alive plus other unexplained Bluffton stories.
This week’s presentations include stories from Steiner’s recent book “Where Bluffton’s Ghosts Sleep.” The book sells for $24.95 and is available in several downtown businesses.
Persons attending any of the programs may obtain copies for $20.
