The legend of Maiden Rock, one of the sites said to be where the Native American maiden Winona leapt to her death because her father forbade her marriage to the man she loved; the carnivorous, forest dwelling hidebehind, which can conceal itself anywhere (you are safe if you drink beer around the campfire, as the hidebehind loathes the taste of alcohol); ghosts and unearthly screams at the haunted, historic and luxurious Retlaw Plaza Hotel in Fond du Lac; the apparition of Adam Bobel (Boebel) seen in Central House, Boscobel, the site of his hotel and where Gideons International was founded; giant, finned serpents, as well as spirits and a powerful manitou, in Devil's Lake (Da-wa-kah-char-gra) where the Ho-Chunk nation still celebrate their spiritual rites; a young boy whose spirit haunts the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh, where he died from a fall; the Beast of Bray Road, possibly a a werewolf, seen near Elkhorn; and the mischievious spirit of "Agatha", the cigar smoking ghost of William Karsten, the playful spectre of little Billy Karsten, as well as other hauntings and psychokinetic manifestations, at the Karsten Hotel (The Historic Karsten Inn) in Kewaunee, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Wisconsin.
