Ghosts, Monsters, Legends, Folklore, Myths and Scary Stories in Ohio
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 frog-like dwarves of Loveland; 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 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), 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 ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; 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 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 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 other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.
America is one of the largest, most most varied and most interesting countries in the world. Be as familiar with famous places as you might like to be with famous people. Honolulu, Philadelphia, New York, San Diego, Savannah, Detroit, Boston, Albuquerque, Salt Lake City, Skagway, Minneapolis, Anchorage, Sitka, Houston, Seattle, Fairbanks, Miami, Atlantic City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Atlanta, Phoenix, Lake Tahoe, Las Vegas, Corpus Christi, Juneau, Kansas City, Dallas, New Orleans, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Washington DC, Sacramento, San Francisco and St Louis. If you have seen those cities, you have at least seen the most famous ones in the USA. Visiting all fifty states is something that even most Americans cannot manage but it is possible to visit those cities, as well as other iconic destinations such as Mount Rushmore, the Everglades, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Niagara Falls, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Florida Keys, Glacier Bay National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, Bryce Canyon, the Ozarks, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Route 66, the Adirondacks, the Okefenokee Swamp, Mount Rainier National Park, the Disney resorts, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the wild west town of Tombstone, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, rodeos, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Appalachians, the Grand Canyon, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska and the California coastline. Casually mentioning places that you have visited can be as impressive as mentioning the names of celebrities that you have met. Happy travelling!
