Myths, Legends, Folklore, Scary Stories, Ghosts and Monsters in Ohio
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; 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 "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 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); and the frog-like dwarves of Loveland, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Ohio.
The ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; the phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo; 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 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 entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.
You cannot claim to have seen the world unless you have travelled in the USA. How well can you know the USA? Try visiting Sitka, Indianapolis, Santa Fe, Boston, Washington DC, Corpus Christi, Juneau, Honolulu, Minneapolis, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Albuquerque, New Orleans, Detroit, Miami, Lake Tahoe, Sacramento, Houston, Skagway, Savannah, Phoenix, Dallas, Kansas City, New York, Atlanta, St Louis, Anchorage, Atlantic City, Philadelphia, Fairbanks, Salt Lake City, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas and San Diego. Nobody can see every part of the United States of America but those cities are probably the ones that nearly everybody on earth has heard of. The Everglades, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Adirondacks, the wild west town of Tombstone, the California coastline, Mount Rushmore, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Canyon, rodeos, the Okefenokee Swamp, Niagara Falls, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, the Ozarks, the Appalachians, Yosemite National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Disney resorts, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Bryce Canyon, Route 66, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Florida Keys and Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park are also iconic sights and destinations.
