Folklore, Legends, Scary Stories, Ghosts, Monsters and Myths in South Dakota
Many hauntings, including a headless phantom seeking his missing part, in McLaughlin, on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation; the Taku-He of the Pine Ridge Reservation, possibly a bigfoot (sasquatch) although some witnesses say that it wears a coat and a tall hat; the piano that plays without human assistance in Saloon #10, Deadwood, which displays a chair said to be the one in which Wild Bill Hickock died while holding aces and eights, the Dead Man's Hand; unexplained lights in Fort Sisseton State Park; and ghosts including a man, a girl and a White Lady, especially on the 8th floor (particularly room 812 from which, in life, the White Lady mysteriously fell) in the Hotel Alex Johnson, Rapid City, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of South Dakota.
The ghost of Sheriff Seth Bullock, the former owner, in the Historic Bullock Hotel, Deadwood; the screaming banshee that approaches those foolish enough to camp a mile south of the Watchdog (also called Watch Dog Butte, a natural formation shaped remarkably like the profile of a terrier) in the Badlands; the jackalope (lepus temperamentalus), an antlered and unpredictable rabbit that may be related to the wolpertinger and the lepus cornutus of Germany; the skeletal music lover of the Badlands, which moves its skull in time to the melody and which may "borrow" violins if left within reach (it is said to play beautifully but do not follow if it walks away with your instrument [yes, there are those who have been so daring], as it will lead you to your death and its music will capture your soul); and the ghost of an old caretaker, as well as unexplained noises, in the Old Minnehaha County Courthouse (the Old Courthouse Museum) in Sioux Falls, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in South Dakota.
