Dayton Ghosts and Legends

Author Sara Kaushal shares facts surrounding the long-told legends of Dayton

All towns have their legends and Dayton is no exception. Author Sara Kaushal will share facts surrounding the long-told ghost stories and legends of Dayton from her new book, Dayton Ghosts and Legends. Just as in Murder and Mayhem in Dayton, her previous book, Sara will tell us stories of Paul Sorg who still sits in his favorite seat in the Sorg Opera House more than a hundred years after his death. Or the story of the so-called phantom terrorized truck drivers crossing the Englewood Dam before disappearing for good. The famed Butter Street Monster roams Germantown. Magee Park is home to numerous bigfoot and ghost sightings—and even a unicorn sighting. A building of many names, the tower on Patterson Boulevard in Kettering near Hills and Dales Park has been the source of many stories for generations, but only now is its true story finally told. Hear these and other tales along with the facts for some of Dayton’s most fascinating tales.
Please note: Maximum Community Room occupancy is 80. Seating will be first come, first seated. All others are encouraged to watch via Zoom.
The Far Hills Speaker Series is presented through a partnership between the Oakwood Historical Society and Wright Memorial Public Library.
