The phantom Native Americans that still chase the ghost of Mrs Lott in Vegors Cemetery, Lehigh; the snapping turtle the size of a car in Big Blue lake, Mason City; how a Native American girl called White Cloud is buried at Lover's Leap, Elkader, where she leapt to her death after mistakenly believing that her white lover had been forced to jump; the ghost of a little girl in the Hawkeye Theatre, Fort Dodge; the well dressed ghost, believed by some to be Al Capone, in the Hotel Julien Dubuque; the spectre of a woman in evening dress and the ghost of Cary Grant in Hotel Blackhawk, Davenport; and the White Lady haunting the Granger House Museum in Marion, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Iowa.
Unexplained phenomena in the Grand Opera House, Dubuque; the Van Meter Visitor, a giant, bat-like, light-emitting creature, freed from its subterranean lair by coal miners, that terrorised the town of Van Meter in 1903 and which might be reawakened someday (the entrance of the mine was dynamited to shut in the monster but the townsfolk had better pray that the price of coal does not climb much higher); the ghosts of a well dressed man and a lady in white at The Hotel Ottumwa in Ottumwa; the dragon that created Spirit Canyon on the Big Sioux River; the spectre of a little girl that signals visitors to leave Hickory Hill Cemetery in Charlotte; ghosts including a gypsy queen, accompanied by crows, in Union Township Cemetery, Algona; and the Mud Man, a humanoid creature apparently made of mud, that inhabits the area near the Metz Railroad Trestle Bridge in Newton (part of a human skull was recently found in the vicinity), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Iowa.
