Legends, Monsters, Ghosts, Scary Stories, Myths and Folklore in 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 girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; the ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; 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); 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.
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 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; the frog-like dwarves of Loveland; the spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance; and the phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.

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