The White Lady, Julia, who haunts Rolling Acres Road in appropriately named Lady Lake, along with a hooded phantom; giant, finned serpents, as well as spirits and a powerful manitou, in Devil's Lake (Da-wa-kah-char-gra) where the Ho-Chunk nation still celebrate their spiritual rites; the nine or more spectres that haunt Original Springs Mineral Spa and Hotel in Okawville, including a former owner and a Lady in White; the "spectral evidence" submitted at the Salem witch trials, supported by the "expertise" of that credulous chronicler, Cotton Mather (in witchcraft trials, if you could prove that you were elsewhere at the time of the alleged crime, it was actually held AGAINST you, as it was believed that one of your apparitions was a demonic spectre - "You were in two places at once, eh? Condemned out of your own mouth!"); the mischievious spirit of "Agatha", the cigar smoking ghost of William Karsten, the playful spectre of little Billy Karsten, as well as other hauntings and psychokinetic manifestations, at the Karsten Hotel (The Historic Karsten Inn) in Kewaunee; appearances of the spiny goat-sucker, the chupacabra; the Prohibition era celebration that may still be heard in the Hotel Andra (once the Claremont) in Seattle; the "melon heads" of Kirtland, similar to those of Connecticut and Michigan (I also suspect that the New York legend of swollen-headed Catskill gnomes owes its origin to melonheads); the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island; the supernatural sinking of the island where stands the Nix's Mate beacon, named after the ship's mate who cursed the island before being wrongly executed for killing Captain Nix; the Richmond Vampire, popularly (and perhaps unfairly) associated with the tomb of William Wortham Pool in Holywood Cemetery, Richmond; hauntings of Woodlawn Plantation, Mount Vernon, including the beautiful and fragrant ghost of Eleanor "Nelly" Custis (near the boxwood trees) and the well in the gift shop that may be a portal to another world; the spirits of appropriately named Cape Fear, including Confederate General William Whiting in Fort Fisher, south of Wilmington; the treasure of Cumberland Heights, guarded by invisible and deadly hands; and the phantom slaves sometimes seen on the verandah of The Hermitage near Nashville, once the home of "the people's president", Andrew Jackson, are among the strange tales of the USA.

Not Dracula but Jutaculla (Judaculla), a slant-eyed giant that dwells in the caves of Devil's Courthouse and/or Tanasee Bald (Tannasee Bald) in the appropriately named Transylvania County (Tanasee Bald extends into Haywood County, where the bigfoot-like Boojum prowls); the spiritual significance of the pipestone quarries in Pipestone National Monument, where the clay is stained reddish by the blood of bison (buffalo) eaten by the Great Spirit, where the first man and woman were created from the clay, where thunderbirds nest and where, beneath granite boulders, the spirits of two Native American shaman women called Tsomecostee and Tsomecostewondee dwell and may still be consulted by those who go there for their pipe clay; the stone monster slain by Hiawatha, evidenced by large rocks on the eastern side of Grand Traverse Bay; the spirits of Congress Plaza Hotel, Chicago, especially the spectral woman in Room 441; the face that appears if you gaze into a spring of the Great Balsam Mountains, which may not be your own but the hideous visage of a Cherokee woman, cursed by a manitou because of her flirtatiousness; the numerous ghosts of the Cassadaga Hotel, Cassadaga, which embraces its phantom guests and usually has a professional psychic on hand (spectres include girls Katlin and Sarah, Gentleman Jack with his trademark cigar and a rather naughty ghost called Arthur); a young boy whose spirit haunts the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh, where he died from a fall; the skeletal Rambout Van Dam who rows the Tappan Zee; the Roxbury pudding stones, said to be the remains of a giant's dessert, found near Boston; the haunted Century Inn in Scenery Hill; the time shifts experienced by some hikers in the Superstitions; the many hauntings of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, which include a Lady in White in the reception area, children playing in the swimming pool, a man killed in the engine room and the mystery of room B340; the Wiccademous Grave of the atmospheric shrimping village Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, where the spirit of a witch causes the earth to tremble; the mysteries of Fairy Hole cave, a Native American sacred site near Ghost Lake; and the spirits of Kate Morgan, a little boy and girl, the mistress of a millionaire, a Victorian lady who likes to dance and a former caretaker in San Diego's famous Hotel Del Coronado (used in the movie Some Like it Hot and remarkable for its Victorian wooden architecture), are more supernatural myths or scary stories of the United States of America.
