Folklore, Ghosts, Monsters, Legends, Myths and Scary Stories in Ohio
The ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; the frog-like dwarves of Loveland; stories of Johnny Appleseed, a real nurseryman and missionary whose real name was John Chapman (he planted many apple nurseries in the Mohican area of Ohio); the hauntings of Franklin Castle (a private residence, so do not linger), Cleveland, including a crying child and unexplained music (in spite of its name and reputation as Ohio's most haunted house, it looks to me like a typical Victorian dwelling); and the phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Ohio.
The spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance; the girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; the story of Indian fighter Bill Quick, who had ninety-nine human skulls displayed as trophies in his cabin near Kenton and, on his death bed, made his son Tom swear to add the hundredth, little knowing that the hundredth trophy in the cabin would be placed there by a Native American warrior and would be Tom's own skull (there certainly was a Tom Quick, notorious for killing Native Americans indiscriminately, and the legend probably grew from a desire to create justice in legend if not in reality); the entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati; 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); and the Cry Baby Bridge in Norton, Akron, where at midnight the ghostly sight and sound of a mother throwing her baby into the river may be witnessed, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.

America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Anchorage, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Skagway, Dallas, Chicago, Phoenix, Sitka, Lake Tahoe, Las Vegas, Miami, Juneau, San Francisco, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Detroit, St Louis, Albuquerque, New York, Savannah, Sacramento, New Orleans, Boston, Santa Fe, Honolulu, Kansas City, Washington DC, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, Corpus Christi, Minneapolis, Fairbanks, Seattle, San Diego and Atlantic City. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. Niagara Falls, Mount Rushmore, the Appalachians, Yellowstone National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Grand Canyon, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Ozarks, the Okefenokee Swamp, rodeos, Bryce Canyon, Route 66, the wild west town of Tombstone, Glacier Bay National Park, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Everglades, the Adirondacks, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Florida Keys, the California coastline, Yosemite National Park, Mount Rainier National Park and the Disney resorts are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
