Folklore, Myths, Monsters, Scary Stories, Ghosts and Legends in Ohio
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); 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 phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo; 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 the entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Ohio.
The spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance; 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 girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; 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); the ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; and the frog-like dwarves of Loveland, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.

The United States of America has been the most culturally influential country in the world for generations. 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 Corpus Christi, Kansas City, Sitka, St Louis, Boston, New Orleans, Indianapolis, San Francisco, Savannah, Skagway, Albuquerque, Anchorage, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Fairbanks, Santa Fe, Juneau, Chicago, Phoenix, Washington DC, Atlantic City, Salt Lake City, New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Miami, Seattle, Detroit, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Honolulu and Houston. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Adirondacks, Mount Rainier National Park, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Ozarks, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Disney resorts, Yellowstone National Park, Route 66, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Mount Rushmore, the wild west town of Tombstone, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Appalachians, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Florida Keys, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Everglades, Glacier Bay National Park, the California coastline, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Bryce Canyon, rodeos, Niagara Falls and Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
