Scary Stories, Myths, Folklore, Monsters, Ghosts and Legends in Alabama
The ghost of a woman and uncanny piano playing that haunt the Victoria Inn in Anniston; the creation of Blue Pond near Oxford, by a great sinkhole that swallowed nearly two thousand Native Americans who had gathered to watch the burning of two suspected witches; the face embedded in a window of Pickens County Courthouse, Carrollton, thought by some to be the visage of an alleged criminal who cursed the town before he was lynched by an angry mob; the horned Choccolocco monster that terrified the eponymous town (a man called Neal Williamson later claimed that he was the monster but you may choose not to believe him); the ghost of Colonel Tutwiler in the Tutwiler Hotel, Birmingham (more properly, as I write, called the mouthful "Hampton Inn and Suites Birmingham-Downtown-Tutwiler"); and how the Space Camp in Huntsville combines modern science with ancient paranormal forces by being haunted by the ghost of a man bured in debris after an explosion, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Alabama.
