Ghosts, Scary Stories, Myths, Monsters, Folklore and Legends in Ohio
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); the phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo; the entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati; the spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance; and 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), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Ohio.
The ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; 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 frog-like dwarves of Loveland; 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); and 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), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.
America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. 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 Kansas City, Sitka, Honolulu, Skagway, Albuquerque, San Francisco, Sacramento, Phoenix, Washington DC, Atlanta, Anchorage, Minneapolis, St Louis, Juneau, New York, Atlantic City, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Salt Lake City, San Diego, New Orleans, Houston, Lake Tahoe, Corpus Christi, Boston, Miami, Philadelphia, Fairbanks, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Savannah, Santa Fe, Las Vegas, Seattle, Dallas and Chicago. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Okefenokee Swamp, the Everglades, the wild west town of Tombstone, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Bryce Canyon, the Disney resorts, the Ozarks, the Appalachians, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Niagara Falls, the California coastline, Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, the Adirondacks, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Route 66, rodeos, the Florida Keys, Yosemite National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Mount Rainier National Park, Yellowstone National Park and the Arctic wilderness of Alaska are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
