Myths, Scary Stories, Ghosts, Legends, Monsters and Folklore in Indiana
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); the reptilian man, or possibly people, who lurk in the Ohio River; strange stories about how mysterious boulders reached the crowns of trees (as high as eighty feet up) in Yellowwood State Forest; ghosts of the historic Hotel Attica in Attica, including an unwelcome back scratcher and a glowing spectre (are they the same spirit?); hauntings of the Crump Theatre in Columbus, including the spectre of a child, unexplained voices in the nursing area and the ghost of a man; Oscar, the Beast of Busco, said to be a gigantic snapping turtle encountered near Churubusco; and the lion-headed serpent of the Wabash, seen at Huntington, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Indiana.
The girl in yellow, a murder victim, whose spirit is still seen in Indiana University, Bloomington; 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 phantom woman of the Rockport Inn Bed & Breakfast in Rockport; the phantom Woman in Black who chases people in the area of East Third Street, Bloomington; the spectre of Richard Dorson who, appropriately, founded Indiana University's Folklore Institute and now haunts the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology on North Fess Avenue, Bloomington; ghosts of the Barbee Hotel in Warsaw, including Al Capone, a murdered gangster's moll, a silent old man and even, perhaps, Rita Hayworth; and 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, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Indiana.
Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see New York, Chicago, Juneau, Houston, Los Angeles, Fairbanks, Atlanta, Seattle, Savannah, Lake Tahoe, Skagway, Albuquerque, Sacramento, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Santa Fe, San Diego, Detroit, Washington DC, New Orleans, Boston, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Minneapolis, Dallas, St Louis, Honolulu, Anchorage, Phoenix, Corpus Christi, Kansas City, Miami, Salt Lake City, Atlantic City and Sitka. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Mount Rainier National Park, Yosemite National Park, the Adirondacks, Bryce Canyon, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Disney resorts, Niagara Falls, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Glacier Bay National Park, rodeos, Yellowstone National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Florida Keys, Mount Rushmore, the Appalachians, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Everglades, the Ozarks, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Okefenokee Swamp, Route 66, the Grand Canyon and the California coastline are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
