County museum hosts ‘Unnatural Ohio’ authors


The Wood County Museum will host a meet-and-greet and book signing event with Kristina Smith and Kevin Moore, authors of “Unnatural Ohio” on March 14 at 6 p.m.

Admission will be $7 per person, or free for museum members. The price includes the meet-and-greet, with light refreshments available and tours of the museum’s exhibits.

“Unnatural Ohio” features tales from all over Ohio about creatures, ghosts, and other unexplained phenomena. A monster that appeared to be half man and half dog and wielding a 2-by-4 terrorized a small Northwest Ohio town during the summer of 1972.

Over the years, visitors to a quiet Cincinnati suburb claim to have been accosted by a human-size, leathery frogman lurking near the riverbank.

For generations, hikers and hunters have reported seeing Bigfoot throughout forests across Ohio, and some of the most notorious and well-documented UFO encounters on record have taken place here.

There will be a short presentation by the authors, followed by a book signing. The “Unnatural Ohio” books will be available for sale in the museum gift shop.

To make reservations, visit or call 419-352-0967.
