Overview
Behind Put-in-Bay's breathtaking scenery and wild nightlife is a side of the island that will make your hair stand on end. Passersby claim to see the ghost of assistant lighthouse keeper Sam Anderson, who jumped to his death in the turbulent water of Lake Erie during an 1898 smallpox outbreak. Doors open and close of their own accord, and some say a spirit named Benny tosses things around at the Put-in-Bay Brewery and Distillery. Stage actor T.B. Alexander married the granddaughter of famous abolitionist John Brown and became one of the island's most noted mayors. His ghost is said to linger in the historic barroom of T&J's Smokehouse. Author William G. Krejci hosts this tour of the darker aspects of island life.

Author
William G. Krejci was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1975 and raised in the neighboring suburb of Avon Lake. With an interest in local history, he spends much of his time debunking urban legends of northern Ohio and works as a seasonal park ranger at Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial at Put-in-Bay, Ohio. During the off season, he resides in Cleveland. In 2015, he released Buried Beneath Cleveland: Lost Cemeteries of Cuyahoga County (The History Press), which tells the stories of over fifty displaced cemeteries throughout the greater Cleveland area. He is also the co-author of an upcoming book about Cleveland's notorious Franklin Castle, which is regarded as the most haunted house in Ohio.
