Dayton and Ohio’s Supernatural Significances

It’s Spooky Season! In real estate, it’s all about “location location location”. Here in the Dayton area, we have plenty to add to our location:

  • Bellbrook is considered to be Ohio’s “Sleepy Hollow.”
  • Ohio is the 8th in the nation for UFO sightings, and Dayton is a significant city in UFO sightings.
  • Ohio is the 3rd in the nation for Bigfoot sightings.

  • Germantown is the “mecca for dogman sightings.”
  • Bellbrook is on the migratory path for Bigfoot.
