Bizarre Beasts

There are reports of strange monsters roaming not only Ohio, but across the world. Here is a collection of artifacts and materials related to some of those monsters, from Ohio and beyond!

Bigfoot cast Cast from Salt Fork State Park, taken by legendary Ohio Bigfoot hunter, Joedy Cook. Given to me as a Christmas present in 2009 by my loving wife, Steph.


Feejee Mermaid


Regardless of whether you spell it “Feejee” or “Fiji”, these bizarre half-human, half-fish creatures have been reported for well over 200 years. But are they real? This specimen, housed at the Strange & Spooky Museum, certainly looks authentic.
