Folklore, Ghosts, Monsters, Scary Stories, Myths and Legends in Indiana
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); 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 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; strange stories about how mysterious boulders reached the crowns of trees (as high as eighty feet up) in Yellowwood State Forest; the phantom Woman in Black who chases people in the area of East Third Street, Bloomington; ghosts of the historic Hotel Attica in Attica, including an unwelcome back scratcher and a glowing spectre (are they the same spirit?); and Oscar, the Beast of Busco, said to be a gigantic snapping turtle encountered near Churubusco, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Indiana.
The phantom woman of the Rockport Inn Bed & Breakfast in Rockport; the reptilian man, or possibly people, who lurk in the Ohio River; the lion-headed serpent of the Wabash, seen at Huntington; 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; the girl in yellow, a murder victim, whose spirit is still seen in Indiana University, 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.
You cannot claim to have seen the world unless you have travelled in the USA. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. New York, Honolulu, Savannah, Anchorage, Los Angeles, Chicago, St Louis, Fort Lauderdale, Sitka, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Sacramento, San Francisco, Skagway, New Orleans, Santa Fe, Seattle, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Albuquerque, Atlanta, Juneau, Fairbanks, Minneapolis, Lake Tahoe, Atlantic City, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Washington DC, Detroit, Houston, Dallas, Corpus Christi, San Diego, Boston and Miami are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include The Florida Keys, the wild west town of Tombstone, Yosemite National Park, Route 66, the Okefenokee Swamp, the California coastline, Niagara Falls, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Everglades, Mount Rainier National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Mount Rushmore, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Canyon, the Ozarks, the Appalachians, rodeos, Bryce Canyon, the Adirondacks, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Disney resorts, Glacier Bay National Park and Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa.
The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. Camelopard.com and its staff hope that you enjoy your stay.
