Founded in the summer of 2000, the OES is a group of urban explorers who visit both well-known historical locations and those forgotten with time. Members of the Ohio Exploration Society research and photograph locations that include everything from abandoned buildings to rural cemeteries to ancient Indian mounds to wonders of nature. We publish our research and photos on our website
in an attempt to preserve the history and memory of these important sites.
In addition to documenting Ohio's forgotten and historical sites, the OES offers paranormal investigations. Our core paranormal team has many years of experience investigating paranormal claims. Unlike some paranormal groups who emulate what they have seen on television shows, the OES and our partners have developed our own investigative techniques. Our team focuses on physical research by using video recorders, digital cameras, audio recorders and other electronic equipment combined with historical research to document paranormal events. We also use intuitive research in some investigations.
