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; 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); Oscar, the Beast of Busco, said to be a gigantic snapping turtle encountered near Churubusco; ghosts of the Barbee Hotel in Warsaw, including Al Capone, a murdered gangster's moll, a silent old man and even, perhaps, Rita Hayworth; the reptilian man, or possibly people, who lurk in the Ohio River; the girl in yellow, a murder victim, whose spirit is still seen in Indiana University, Bloomington; and the phantom Woman in Black who chases people in the area of East Third Street, Bloomington, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Indiana.
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 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); the lion-headed serpent of the Wabash, seen at Huntington; the phantom woman of the Rockport Inn Bed & Breakfast in Rockport; ghosts of the historic Hotel Attica in Attica, including an unwelcome back scratcher and a glowing spectre (are they the same spirit?); strange stories about how mysterious boulders reached the crowns of trees (as high as eighty feet up) in Yellowwood State Forest; 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.
