The spectre of a little girl that signals visitors to leave Hickory Hill Cemetery in Charlotte; the Van Meter Visitor, a giant, bat-like, light-emitting creature, freed from its subterranean lair by coal miners, that terrorised the town of Van Meter in 1903 and which might be reawakened someday (the entrance of the mine was dynamited to shut in the monster but the townsfolk had better pray that the price of coal does not climb much higher); the ghost of a little girl in the Hawkeye Theatre, Fort Dodge; the spectre of a woman in evening dress and the ghost of Cary Grant in Hotel Blackhawk, Davenport; the phantom Native Americans that still chase the ghost of Mrs Lott in Vegors Cemetery, Lehigh; the ghosts of a well dressed man and a lady in white at The Hotel Ottumwa in Ottumwa; and the snapping turtle the size of a car in Big Blue lake, Mason City, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Iowa.
