What’s more Google than Google? A librarian who loves local history.
Amelia Robinson and Nancy Horlacher of the Dayton Metro Library talk about odd and scary Dayton stories for the latest episode of the What Had Happened Was podcast.
Nancy shares tales about the supposedly haunted Frankenstein Castle, alligators raised in a Dayton wonderland, how water brought down Dayton’s wall city within our city and the creep-tastic Phantom Driver of Englewood dam.
She even dives into one of the city’s biggest controversies: how Dayton became known as the Gem City.
