Folklore, Ghosts, Legends, Monsters, Myths and Scary Stories in Ohio
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 ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; 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 girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; and 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), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Ohio.
The spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance; the phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo; 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; the entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati; the frog-like dwarves of Loveland; and 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), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.

America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Juneau, Dallas, New Orleans, Houston, Minneapolis, Skagway, Boston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Corpus Christi, Detroit, Fairbanks, Honolulu, Sacramento, Sitka, Kansas City, Santa Fe, Anchorage, Albuquerque, Salt Lake City, Savannah, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Diego, Lake Tahoe, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, St Louis, San Francisco, Miami, Indianapolis, New York, Atlantic City, Washington DC and Phoenix are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include Route 66, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Adirondacks, the Grand Canyon, the Ozarks, Niagara Falls, the California coastline, rodeos, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Disney resorts, the Florida Keys, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Yellowstone National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Appalachians, Yosemite National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Everglades, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Mount Rushmore, Bryce Canyon, Mount Rainier National Park and the Arctic wilderness of Alaska.
The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. Travel safely and happily.
