The phantom woman of the Rockport Inn Bed & Breakfast in Rockport; the glowing male apparition of Baums Bridge Inn Bar & Restaurant in Kouts, which may be seen through a window (hope that it doesn't see you, though, as it can move with uncanny speed); the crying of ghostly babies heard in Indiana University's Career Development Center on North Jordan Avenue, Bloomington, which was once a fraternity house and also the site of an illegal abortion clinic; the lion-headed serpent of the Wabash, seen at Huntington; ghosts of the Barbee Hotel in Warsaw, including Al Capone, a murdered gangster's moll, a silent old man and even, perhaps, Rita Hayworth; ghosts of the historic Hotel Attica in Attica, including an unwelcome back scratcher and a glowing spectre (are they the same spirit?); and stories of the Swedenborgian missionary and nurseryman, Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman), who acquired some wealth by hard work but went barefoot, wore rags or old clothes and used his cooking pan as a cap (he was living in Indiana at the time of his death in Fort Wayne), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Indiana.
