Folklore, Legends, Ghosts, Scary Stories, Myths and Monsters in Ohio
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); the girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; 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 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; and the entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Ohio.
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); 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 ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; the frog-like dwarves of Loveland; the phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo; and the spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.
America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe.

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 plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Yellowstone National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Florida Keys, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Okefenokee Swamp, Niagara Falls, Route 66, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, the California coastline, the Appalachians, the Adirondacks, the Disney resorts, Mount Rushmore, Yosemite National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Ozarks, rodeos, Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon and the Everglades.
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.
