Scary Stories, Ghosts, Monsters, Folklore, Legends and Myths in Massachusetts
The giant Maushope of Native American legend, who lived on Martha's Vineyard; speculation and rhymes about Lizzie Borden, acquitted of the axe murders of her parents (their home in Fall River, at the time of writing, is the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast Museum, allegedly haunted and with an ouija board in the lounge); the sea serpents that have been seen around Cape Ann and Massachusetts Bay; the supernatural sinking of the island where stands the Nix's Mate beacon, named after the ship's mate who cursed the island before being wrongly executed for killing Captain Nix; tales of witchcraft and witch hunting, although the Salem witch trials are history, not legend; the mounted spirits of Lafayette and Washington who keep watch over the grave of Satan, who was captured and killed by Shakers at Mount Sinai; and Spring Heel Jack (Spring Heeled Jack) who terrorised London, England, many years before emigrating to Cape Cod, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Massachusetts.
The Dover Demon, possibly an ET; Captain Alfred Bulltop Stormalong (Stormalong, A.B. geddit?), the gigantic captain of the massive ships Courser and Tuscarora, whose many adventures included life or death struggles with the deadly kraken; the spectre of the stubborn septuagenarian Giles Corey, which appears as a harbinger of disaster in Salem where, being pressed to death with weights over two days for refusing to plead to the charge of witchcraft, Corey merely shouted "more weight!" (although it was the only instance of pressing a man to death in New England history and cruel even for its time, Judge Corwin, whose house still stands in Salem, actually stood on Coreys chest, demanding that he plead); the demon that finally clawed a retired pirate to death at Cape Cod; the Roxbury pudding stones, said to be the remains of a giant's dessert, found near Boston; the alchemist who sought the elixir or life, in a turreted house at the junction of Essex and North Streets, in Salem; the altar in Wizard's Glen near Dalton, where a hunter called John Chamberlain rescued a Native American girl who was to be sacrificed to the demons of the forest; and the "spectral evidence" submitted at the Salem witch trials, supported by the "expertise" of that credulous chronicler, Cotton Mather (in witchcraft trials, if you could prove that you were elsewhere at the time of the alleged crime, it was actually held AGAINST you, as it was believed that one of your apparitions was a demonic spectre - "You were in two places at once, eh? Condemned out of your own mouth!"), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Massachusetts.
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. Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Boston, Juneau, Honolulu, St Louis, Albuquerque, New York, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas, Savannah, Sacramento, Atlantic City, Corpus Christi, Miami, Washington DC, Seattle, San Diego, Kansas City, Salt Lake City, Chicago, Indianapolis, Lake Tahoe, Houston, San Francisco, Detroit, Sitka, Skagway, Fairbanks, New Orleans, Santa Fe, Anchorage, Atlanta and Philadelphia 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 Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Adirondacks, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Florida Keys, the Everglades, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Glacier Bay National Park, the Appalachians, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Yosemite National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Route 66, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the California coastline, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Bryce Canyon, the Ozarks, Niagara Falls, rodeos and the Disney resorts.
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. Good luck on your travels.
