Myths, Scary Stories, Monsters, Legends, Ghosts and Folklore in Missouri
The shadow people, with glowing red eyes, that lurk in the town of Maryville; the large, black, feline Ozark Howler, the glowing eyes of which may cause the death of those it looks upon; several ghosts haunting South East Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau; strange phenomena at the Kemp Mansion Restaurant and Inn, St Louis; the almost innumerable traditions, magical spells and superstitions of the Ozarks, some of which are recorded in Harold Bell Wright's novel The Shepherd of the Hills and in the John Wayne movie of the same name (though a rather different plot); the Spook Light of the Devil's Promenade, near Joplin (is it a lantern held by a ghostly miner or headless Native American, or is it the spectral light of Native American lovers who died in a lover's pact?); the spectral little girl, nicknamed Amy, who plays in the Music City Centre in Branson; the Osage Native American ghostly wedding ceremony that is sometimes heard and occasionally seen, in the Bridal Cave of Thunder Mountain Park in Camdenton; and how the Great Spirit created the Mina Sauk waterfall, in Taum Sauk Mountain State Park, to wash away the blood of the Piankashaw maiden, Mina Sauk, who jumped to her death to follow her Osage lover, who had been thrown over the cliff on the orders of her father, Taum Sauk, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Missouri.
The flying, fire-breathing dragon that was seen from a steamboat in the 1850s; the ghostly boy haunting the Union Covered Bridge in the eponymous State Historic Site, where the boy drowned in the nineteenth century; the phantom of a weeping Native American woman who, on moonlit nights, repeats her death jump from a cliff in Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park (Creve Coeur Park), in St Louis County, where she tried to join her late husband in the spirit world; the gold mine in the Ozarks, eighteen miles south west of the town of Galena, which is guarded by the skeletal ghosts of seven Spanish miners; the bigfoot seen in Hillsboro (could it have been MoMo?); hauntings of the historic Savoy Hotel and Grill in Kansas City, including that of Betsy Ward who, in the nineteenth century, died in her bath in room 505, as well as the spectre of Fred Lightner and, on the fourth floor, a little girl in Victorian dress, not to mention the strange behaviour of the elevator, which sometimes avoids the fourth floor and sometimes refuses to leave it; MoMo, the hairy, sasquatch-like Missouri Monster, that is believed to prey on the dogs of the town of Louisiana; the tusked, serpentine Gowrow Dragon of Marvel Cave near Branson, named from its fearsome growls; the ghost of a young boy in Sauer Castle, Kansas City; and the pteradactyl of Altamont, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Missouri.
Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. 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 New Orleans, Sitka, Santa Fe, Honolulu, Phoenix, Miami, Los Angeles, Seattle, St Louis, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Detroit, New York, Sacramento, Atlantic City, Indianapolis, Houston, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Boston, Corpus Christi, Fairbanks, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Washington DC, San Diego, Lake Tahoe, Albuquerque, Juneau, Savannah, San Francisco, Skagway, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Kansas City and Anchorage. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The wild west town of Tombstone, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Appalachians, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Ozarks, Route 66, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, rodeos, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the California coastline, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Florida Keys, the Okefenokee Swamp, Yellowstone National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Glacier Bay National Park, Niagara Falls, Yosemite National Park, the Everglades, Mount Rushmore, Bryce Canyon, Mount Rainier National Park, the Grand Canyon, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Adirondacks and the Disney resorts are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
