Paranormal phenomena in the Henry hotel (formerly the Ritz Carlton) in Dearborn; the ghost of Samuel Graczyk, a lumberman accidentally killed on the day of his wedding, at Deadman's Hill Scenic Overlook in Mackinaw State Forest; the werewolves (loups-garous / loup-garous) that plagued Detroit when it was a French community and which might, one day, be reawakened (could a waheela be mistaken for a werewolf - or vice versa?); the phantom woman in the garden of Stafford's Perry Hotel, Petoskey; tales of giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe (Oscoda is his official home, as the first Paul Bunyan story was published there but Ossineke has statues of Paul and Babe and the claims of other towns are disputed by Manistique, which also has a statue of Paul); the Melon Heads (melonheads) of Felt Mansion, similar to those of Connecticut and, I believe, the source of the Catskill gnomes legend involving Rip van Winkle and Hendrik Hudson; and the stone monster slain by Hiawatha, evidenced by large rocks on the eastern side of Grand Traverse Bay, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Michigan.
