In early September, the Mansfield Richland County Convention and Visitors Bureau hosted several travel writers from across the country on a “Haunted & Hollywood” tour. Included among sites visited were the Ohio State Reformatory, Richland Carrousel Park, The Blueberry Patch, and many others.

The purpose of the event was to showcase area attractions fitting these themes. Now that writers have returned home, coverage of their individual trips has started to be posted.

Today, a feature story appeared in print and online versions of The Intellegencer and News-Register in Wheeling, West Virginia. In a story titled “Haunted & Hollywood: Mansfield Area Sites Go From Gory to Glamour,” writer Phyllis Segal begins, “I don’t like scary!”

She then profiles visits to the Reformatory, Bissman Building, and Malabar Farm.

Segal’s feature story can be accessed here.
