Folklore, Myths, Legends, Ghosts, Monsters and Scary Stories in Ohio
The ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; 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 entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati; the girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; and 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), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Ohio.
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 phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo; the spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance; 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 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 frog-like dwarves of Loveland, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.
You cannot claim to have seen the world unless you have travelled in the USA. 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 Anchorage, Skagway, Sacramento, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Santa Fe, Philadelphia, Detroit, Kansas City, Miami, Indianapolis, Seattle, Lake Tahoe, Los Angeles, Albuquerque, Savannah, New York, Honolulu, Phoenix, New Orleans, Juneau, Sitka, Atlanta, Corpus Christi, Atlantic City, Salt Lake City, St Louis, Fort Lauderdale, Boston, Las Vegas, Fairbanks, Houston, Washington DC and Minneapolis. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Everglades, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Okefenokee Swamp, Route 66, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Glacier Bay National Park, rodeos, the California coastline, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Yosemite National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Florida Keys, Mount Rushmore, the Disney resorts, the Appalachians, the Adirondacks, Mount Rainier National Park, Niagara Falls, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the wild west town of Tombstone, Yellowstone National Park and the Ozarks are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
