The Ridges
Ohio University Campus
Athens, Ohio

A old building found on the Ohio University Campus called the Ridges housed the criminally insane. It is believed the patients were beaten and tortured by staff members. The hospital closed in 1980. Before its closing a girl named Margaret Schilling disappeared from campus in 1979, and never found. On North Ward 20 a maintenance man found her body hidden in the attic after the hospital had already closed. The dark outline of her body with full details was cleaned and cleaned and would not come off the floor. There is also a cemetery on the property where patients were buried and only given numbers on a stone, no names.

The school does do tours so please call first.
