Ghosts, Legends, Folklore, Monsters, Myths and Scary Stories in Missouri
The pteradactyl of Altamont; the spectral little girl, nicknamed Amy, who plays in the Music City Centre in Branson; how the Great Spirit created the Mina Sauk waterfall, in Taum Sauk Mountain State Park, to wash away the blood of the Piankashaw maiden, Mina Sauk, who jumped to her death to follow her Osage lover, who had been thrown over the cliff on the orders of her father, Taum Sauk; MoMo, the hairy, sasquatch-like Missouri Monster, that is believed to prey on the dogs of the town of Louisiana; the bigfoot seen in Hillsboro (could it have been MoMo?); strange phenomena at the Kemp Mansion Restaurant and Inn, St Louis; the ghost of a young boy in Sauer Castle, Kansas City; the shadow people, with glowing red eyes, that lurk in the town of Maryville; and the almost innumerable traditions, magical spells and superstitions of the Ozarks, some of which are recorded in Harold Bell Wright's novel The Shepherd of the Hills and in the John Wayne movie of the same name (though a rather different plot), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Missouri.
The gold mine in the Ozarks, eighteen miles south west of the town of Galena, which is guarded by the skeletal ghosts of seven Spanish miners; the tusked, serpentine Gowrow Dragon of Marvel Cave near Branson, named from its fearsome growls; the flying, fire-breathing dragon that was seen from a steamboat in the 1850s; the ghostly boy haunting the Union Covered Bridge in the eponymous State Historic Site, where the boy drowned in the nineteenth century; the Spook Light of the Devil's Promenade, near Joplin (is it a lantern held by a ghostly miner or headless Native American, or is it the spectral light of Native American lovers who died in a lover's pact?); the phantom of a weeping Native American woman who, on moonlit nights, repeats her death jump from a cliff in Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park (Creve Coeur Park), in St Louis County, where she tried to join her late husband in the spirit world; the large, black, feline Ozark Howler, the glowing eyes of which may cause the death of those it looks upon; hauntings of the historic Savoy Hotel and Grill in Kansas City, including that of Betsy Ward who, in the nineteenth century, died in her bath in room 505, as well as the spectre of Fred Lightner and, on the fourth floor, a little girl in Victorian dress, not to mention the strange behaviour of the elevator, which sometimes avoids the fourth floor and sometimes refuses to leave it; the Osage Native American ghostly wedding ceremony that is sometimes heard and occasionally seen, in the Bridal Cave of Thunder Mountain Park in Camdenton; and several ghosts haunting South East Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Missouri.
