    Legends, Ghosts, Folklore, Myths, Scary Stories and Monsters in Pennsylvania

    The terrors of St Peter's Church Cemetery, Philadelphia, including ghosts of Native Americans, a black man in eighteenth century dress and a carriage and horses that career through the graveyard into the church; the hauntings of the historic Tillie Pearce House Inn in Gettysburg, especially the Blue Room; tales of John Chapman, the real nurseryman and Swedenborgian missionary known as Johnny Appleseed, who planted his first apple nursery near Warren; the ghosts of the historic Riverside Inn in Cambridge Springs, who waltz to spectral music or cheekily join guests in bed; the spirit of chocolate supremo Mr Hershey himself, still haunting the Hershey Hotel in Hershey; the lachrymose squonk of the northern woods, so mortified by its unattractiveness that if you see it, it will liquify into its own tears; the fragrant spirit of the Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast, Philadelphia; and the playful blonde girl and the spirits of railway workers that haunt the Railroad House Inn in Marietta, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Pennsylvania.

    The Baleroy Mansion's spirits, including Thomas Jefferson (don't sit in the cursed chair if you want to live); the spirits of the seventeenth century King George II Inn (which claims to be the oldest inn in the USA) in Bristol, including a man in a top hat; the phantom soldiers of Devil's Den, Gettysburg; Mitche, the manitou of Mauch Chunk (Bear Mountain) who created the chasm of the Lehigh River, just so a lake would burst its bounds and drown the warrior chief Onoko and his bride, whose love and happiness the manitou resented; the camera loving spirits of Omni Bedford Springs Resort, Bedford, who appear unexpectedly on developed photographs; the yells and screams of Native American warriors and their victims, a woman and two children, which may still be heard in a small valley close to the mouth of Chartiers Creek near Pittsburgh (ghostly orbs or death lights are also sometimes seen); the several ghosts in Bucksville House Bed & Breakfast in Kintnersville, including the man in a black hat who stands at the foot of a bed; and the eponymous spectre of Betsy Ross House, Philadelphia, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Pennsylvania.

    The many spirits of Farnsworth House Inn, Gettysburg, including the caring Nurse Mary but also children, other women, cats and confederate soldiers (beware of the misogynistic Walter); the door-slamming spirits of 18th century Cashtown Inn, Orrtanna; the phantoms of numerous prisoners in Eastern State Penitentiary, closed to living prisoners but not to tourists, in Philadelphia (a "Lady in White", the Soap Lady, haunts a cell on the second floor); the monster of Wolf Pond, a thirty foot black serpent with yellow stripes and a green head; the evil eye of Molly "Mom" Rinker, a witch and revolutionary spy whose lookout was Mom Rinker's Rock in Fairmount Park, near Wissahickon Creek in Philadelphia; the mischievious spirits of Inn Philadelphia, including one that pulls the hair of diners; Nurse Rachel, who still cares for wounded soldiers in the Gettysburg Hotel, Gettysburg; and the crock of gold in southern Chester County, hidden by a British spy who died just before he could reveal its whereabouts, are more weird folklore associated with Pennsylvania.

    The ghosts of the huge Swedish Governor Printz and his friends, who burned down his former home, Printzhof (Printz Hall), shortly after a spectral party where the living caretaker was forced to play the violin (the foundations of Printzhof were rediscovered in 1937 in what is now Governor Printz Park in Essington, Tinicum Island and your best chance of seeing a repeat of the phantom revelry is on the evening of the autumnal equinox); the ghosts of hanged men who wander the eighteenth century Jean Bonnet Tavern in Bedford; the treasure chest of the Lebanon Valley, near Fort Indiantown Gap (sometimes called Indian Gap), protected by witches, blue fire, loud roars and, presumably, GIs (the treasure is gold hidden by the Doan brothers, British spies and outlaws of the revolutionary period, who were driven to crime when their father, a staunch Quaker, was physically branded and stripped of his property for refusing to support the war); the haunted Century Inn in Scenery Hill; the ghosts of Moonshine Church and cemetery in Fort Indiantown Gap; the weird tales of Hexenkopf (Witches Head or, in this context, Witches Hill), in Williams township, where witches or "weird women" once danced and which is still the haunt of a headless hound walked by a headless man, phantom cavalrymen, the spirit of a white fox and the tapping of a wooden leg (a disabled farmer fell to his death while limping after a demon); black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) including the same one that frightened a Texan airman; the headless horseman of the Lebanon Valley near Fort Indiantown Gap; the ghostly waiter in the City Tavern, Philadelphia, who was accidentally killed in a fight between two other people; and the manifestation of the Virgin Mary to save her painting, which hung in St Mary's Immaculate Conception church in Johnstown, from the flood which devastated the city in 1889 (in 2013 it was donated by the Benedictine Sisters to the Johnstown Heritage Association and now hangs in the Grand Halle, on the site of the original church) (incidentally, a 1926 silent movie called The Johnstown Flood starred Janet Gaynor and featured Gary Cooper, Clark Gable and Carole Lombard as extras), are yet more strange folktales of Pennsylvania.

    You cannot claim to have seen the world unless you have travelled in the USA. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Washington DC, Salt Lake City, New York, Fort Lauderdale, San Francisco, Honolulu, Philadelphia, Sacramento, Skagway, Corpus Christi, Atlanta, Lake Tahoe, Minneapolis, Boston, Fairbanks, Savannah, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Seattle, San Diego, Albuquerque, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Juneau, Sitka, Miami, Chicago, Atlantic City, St Louis, Dallas, Anchorage, Kansas City, Detroit 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 The California coastline, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Appalachians, the Adirondacks, Mount Rainier National Park, Mount Rushmore, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Grand Canyon, the Disney resorts, Glacier Bay National Park, Route 66, the wild west town of Tombstone, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, rodeos, the Florida Keys, the Everglades, the Ozarks, Niagara Falls, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii and Bryce Canyon.

    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. Visit Camelopard.com again, if not to travel then for another useful travel tip.
