The event, which happened in the Hamilton County village of North Bend, marked an evolution of the old highwaymen who used to rob stagecoaches. It was an era that also ended in Ohio, with the last great train heist recorded in Garrettsville, Ohio in 1935.  www.ohiomysteries.com feedback@ohiomysteries.com www.patreon.com/ohiomysteries www.twitter.com/mysteriesohio www.facebook.com/ohiomysteries Additional music: New Horizon - Aderin; Audionautix- The Great Unknown; The Great Phospher- Daniel Birch Learn more about your ad choices.

REWIND: The Mystery Airships of 1896-1897
In November of 1896, California residents reported seeing ships in the air sailing over the homes - a sight all the more puzzling since airships hadn't been invented yet, and the Wright Brothers wouldn't fly their first plane for another seven years. Those mysterious airships moved east, and arrived over Ohio in April the next year.  www.ohiomysteries.comfeedback@ohiomysteries.com www.patreon.com/ohiomysteries www.twitter.com/mysteriesohio www.facebook.com/ohiomysteries Music: Audionautix- The Great Unknown The Great Phospher- Daniel Birch Learn more about your ad choices.

OM Backroads Ep:22. Elliot Ness's Raid on the Notorious Cleveland Gambling Den: The Harvard Club
Cleveland's seedy underbelly in the early part of the 20th century could rival most any major city in the US. Crime, greed, graft and corruption became routine part of daily life in Cleveland. Mayor Burton brought famed lawman, Elliot Ness to Cleveland to root out crime from within the ranks of the Cleveland Police Dept. Ness would be put to the test quickly by leading a raid on the Harvard Club, a large scale gambling racket operating just out of the city limits in Cleveland. Serving up to 1,000 patrons a night, the club was ran by mobsters "Shimmy" Patton, Arthur Hebebrand, and Daniel T. Gallagher. Find out what happens when Elliot Ness comes face to face with 20 gangsters armed to the teeth.
