Ghosts, Myths, Monsters, Scary Stories, Folklore and Legends in Ohio
The phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo; the girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; 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 ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; 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 entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati; 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); the spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance; the frog-like dwarves of Loveland; 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 "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), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.
The USA is one of the most developed and technologically advanced countries in the world, yet has preserved much of its wilderness and beautiful scenery. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Los Angeles, Albuquerque, Corpus Christi, Philadelphia, Anchorage, Honolulu, Boston, Seattle, Fairbanks, Dallas, Savannah, Sitka, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Salt Lake City, Detroit, St Louis, San Francisco, Miami, Minneapolis, Santa Fe, Phoenix, Lake Tahoe, New Orleans, Houston, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Sacramento, Juneau, Skagway, Washington DC, San Diego and Atlantic City. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Everglades, the Appalachians, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Disney resorts, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, rodeos, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Niagara Falls, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Adirondacks, Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, the Ozarks, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Route 66, the California coastline, Yellowstone National Park, Mount Rushmore, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, Glacier Bay National Park, the Florida Keys, Bryce Canyon, the Okefenokee Swamp and Mount Rainier National Park are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
