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

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. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Fairbanks, Miami, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Juneau, San Diego, Honolulu, Washington DC, Anchorage, Houston, New York, Sitka, Indianapolis, Phoenix, St Louis, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Philadelphia, Lake Tahoe, Minneapolis, Savannah, Santa Fe, Corpus Christi, Skagway, Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Atlantic City, Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Fort Lauderdale and Kansas City 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 Grand Canyon, the Appalachians, the Everglades, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Bryce Canyon, rodeos, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Niagara Falls, Yellowstone National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Florida Keys, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Mount Rainier National Park, the Adirondacks, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Mount Rushmore, the Ozarks, Route 66, the wild west town of Tombstone, the California coastline, the Disney resorts, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Glacier Bay National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp and Yosemite National Park.
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. Good luck on your travels.
