Legends, Scary Stories, Myths, Folklore, Monsters and Ghosts in Michigan
The stone monster slain by Hiawatha, evidenced by large rocks on the eastern side of Grand Traverse Bay; strange occurrences in the Fenton Hotel, Fenton; the slender, man-eating hidebehind, a "fearsome critter" indeed, which can conceal itself behind any tree but which, unlike pink elephants, can be avoided by drinking alcoholic beverages; the ghosts of a man, a woman and a girl in the Blue Pelican Inn (formerly Murphy's Lamplight Inn) in Central Lake; paranormal phenomena in the Henry hotel (formerly the Ritz Carlton) in Dearborn; the shampoo using and TV remote hiding ghost that haunts Wayne's Red Apple Restaurant and Inn in Wayne (the spectre is of a man allegedly murdered by a maid because he didn't give her a tip, so GIVE THE MAID A TIP); and the Dogman, encountered since the nineteenth century, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Michigan.
Tales of giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe (Oscoda is his official home, as the first Paul Bunyan story was published there but Ossineke has statues of Paul and Babe and the claims of other towns are disputed by Manistique, which also has a statue of Paul); the Melon Heads (melonheads) of Felt Mansion, similar to those of Connecticut and, I believe, the source of the Catskill gnomes legend involving Rip van Winkle and Hendrik Hudson; the spirit of Amelia Earhart, said to haunt the Landmark Inn in Marquette; the phantom woman in the garden of Stafford's Perry Hotel, Petoskey; the ghost of Samuel Graczyk, a lumberman accidentally killed on the day of his wedding, at Deadman's Hill Scenic Overlook in Mackinaw State Forest; the werewolves (loups-garous / loup-garous) that plagued Detroit when it was a French community and which might, one day, be reawakened (could a waheela be mistaken for a werewolf - or vice versa?); and giant, lupine waheelas, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Michigan.
