The Rugh-Mast Mansion was originally built as the Red Rock Tavern, with many hidden passages and secret chambers. It was later converted to a mansion. We don’t know much about the early days except they are shrouded in tales of a nefarious nature. What we do know is that sometime in the 1930’s, a family of five were finally seen moving in to the long-abandoned estate. However, once the last box had been carried into the home and the door was shut, they were never seen outside the manor walls again. After some time had passed, a curious neighbor tried walking inconspicuously past, doing her best to peer in, just to get a glimpse. Shifting her gaze from window to window, she suddenly realized that a woman was peering down at her from the second story, seemingly following her movements. The neighbor, realizing that she had been detected, quickly averted her gaze and hurried to make her way back home. The following day, now even more curious, she returned to the looming structure--only to discover that once again the woman was there, matching her gaze. Once more she scurried away, embarrassed. This happened for 10 days, until finally the suspicious neighbor alerted the local police. Upon entering the home and making their way up a secret staircase, they found hidden passageways which finally led to a private chamber. Here they discovered the family of five, hanging from the ceiling, all in long white gowns. The lady of the house, Mary, happened to be facing out the window of the second-story bedroom. No one has dared inhabit this mystifying residence since. No one knows for sure, but local tales tell that this is the infamous "Bloody Mary" of folklore.  It is now 12:58 AM on September 21, 2015. The derelict mansion is set for demolition today, but there is a way to save it. One of the children is thought to have hidden a doll with a secret that could reveal everything, just before she died at precisely 2 AM! Can you break into this creepy mansion and recover the doll to discover the secret and make it out before the clock strikes 2 AM? This is a true story that happened in Lancaster, Ohio.
