Summit Street Mansion / Great Dayton flood of 1913
Local historians once called the old mansion on Summit Street “the house everyone wants to know about.” Lurid tales of ghosts, strange deaths, murder, slaves dying, Underground Railroad activity ... Rumored secret passages and the lengthy abandonment of the dignified cut stone house led to an abundance of stories. The Dayton flood of March 1913 was caused by a series of severe winter rain storms that hit the Midwest in late March. Within three days, 8–11 inches of rain fell throughout the Great Miami River. The river overflowed. The existing levees failed, and downtown Dayton was flooded up to 20 feet deep.

House of Seven Secrets & The Ohio Melon Heads
In this episode we go back to where it all began. There is a long lost episode of “Bye, go home, no one loves you” that has been locked away in a vault and that vault has been subsequently dropped down the Money Pit on Oak Island never to be heard of again. However, one story was just too good to let go untold. We hear our cohost Mark’s first hand account of The House of Seven Secrets in Scranton, NY. We get transported back to his teen years when times were simpler and friendships were tested by witching hour encounters with malevolent spirits. Little can be found about the House of Seven Secrets, but we examine possible theories about what happened and hear what Mark personaly experienced. Then we go to Ohio to learn about Dr Crowe and his “Melon Heads”. The doctor had a curiosity that led to medical experiments on children. As they say, “curiosity killed the cat”, in this case curiosity may have killed the doctor. The Melon Heads are believed to still roam the woods, scaring away visitors, chasing animals for dinner, and in some reports, killing children. Over the river and through the woods, to the melon heads’ house we go! Be sure to listen to the entire show, you never know when an Easter egg may show up.

Pennsylvania ghost towns and the murder of Rhona Eiseman
Our 10th episode starts with a Q & A contest to determine who knows more about their mutal friendship, Mark or Lena? Is there ever REALLY a winner in situations like this? We visit Pennsylvania for some lore and urban exploration. The abruptly abandoned neighborhood of Lincoln Way is our first stop. Just outside of Pittsburgh, this valley of homes was left, as is, with home furnishings and personal belongings still in the houses. Very little is known about why everyone vanished, but we discuss three reasons that are the most popular explanations. If Lincoln way wasn't enough, another abandoned town we talk about is Centralia, Pennsylvania. This near ghost town went from over 1000 residents in 1980 to 63 by 1990, to only seven in 2013. Centralia has been pretty much wiped out from maps, it's postal code discontinued and residents having no physical address. Seven residents remain to live their lives out until they pass, after which the rights to their houses are taken through eminent domain. Centralia is the real life "Silent Hill". Our final tale takes place at Buffalo State University in the 1970s. A program that allows prisoners to attend college leads to a violent schizophrenic felon, Larry Campbell, hiding out in the apartment of 20 year old student, Rhona Eiseman. Walking in on what was said to be a robbery, Rhona found herself fighting for her life. Her roomates would come home one by one to face similar fates. The great debate, is the school liable for the actions of Campbell since they allowed him to attend college knowing his history or prehaps Campbell's doctors are to blame for lying on their accessments of him, which allowed him to be in the program in the first place?
