Editorial Reviews

Review

"There have been many reports that the Civic Theatre is haunted, but what about the Perkins Stone Mansion, home of the Summit County Historical Society? Some people believe Grace Perkins, widow of the son of Akron s founder, still hangs around there (Grace didn't like a previous director of the society, but the current one seems to be satisfactory).

Author Jeri Holland should know: She's created historical websites for Akron, Summit County and Cuyahoga Falls, and her book Haunted Akron is a tour of events, places and creepy legends. Holland recounts several tragic deaths, whether by murder, suicide or horrific accident; as the director of a group called Cuyahoga Valley Paranormal, she visits some sites hoping to find spirits and record their voices.

The history ranges from colonial, with Mary Campbell's Cave, to the 20th century, recalling the scandalous murder of a matron at the Summit County Juvenile Home." --Ohio.com

About the Author

From family photos to important historical events about her hometown of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Jeri Holland has dedicated passion, time, knowledge and colossal effort in the pursuit of compiling and documenting the treasured past. She has joined several historical societies, including the Cuyahoga Falls Historical Society and the Summit County Historical Society, to share this past with anyone who wishes to know it.

From this love of history comes a love of paranormal history. Jeri has spent many hours studying firsthand what goes bump in the night, be it in the dark woods or run-down sanitariums and prisons. She believes that without historical context, the stories and legends of the haunted present wouldn't be nearly as fascinating or spooky. Jeri is the creator and director of the paranormal group Cuyahoga Valley Paranormal. She uses this perspective when speaking about the paranormal world on radio and television and in print, like with WNIR, 19 Action News and Cleveland Scene magazine. For those who share her passion for historical hauntings, she currently provides a variety of classes about the paranormal at the Quirk Cultural Center in Cuyahoga Falls throughout the year and delivers information through lectures at public libraries. Jeri also shares her experience of investigating eerie places by organizing community events such as haunted scavenger hunts and hikes. Imparting the fact that the world is far more mysterious than what we see and hear every day is Jeri's goal; the goose bumps aren't bad either.

A fun, quick read. Lots of interesting stories even if some are highly questionable as ghost stories. One of the nice elements is the amount of detail on how you can find the sites. Also, some great stories of Akron's past.

Bought this for my brother who lives in Akron. He was very excited at the content. Told me later about numerous haunted Akron facts that he never heard of. Good gift purchase.
