Legends, Monsters, Ghosts, Scary Stories, Folklore and Myths in Ohio
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 entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati; 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 spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance; and 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), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Ohio.
The phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo; 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 girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; the frog-like dwarves of Loveland; 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); and the ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.
The USA is one of the most developed and technologically advanced countries in the world, yet has preserved much of its wilderness and beautiful scenery. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Minneapolis, Boston, Albuquerque, Seattle, Santa Fe, Atlanta, Houston, Fairbanks, Washington DC, Savannah, New York, Miami, Salt Lake City, Sitka, Detroit, Honolulu, Philadelphia, Dallas, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, St Louis, Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Corpus Christi, San Diego, Indianapolis, Lake Tahoe, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Skagway, Anchorage, Kansas City, Sacramento, San Francisco, Phoenix and Juneau 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 Okefenokee Swamp, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the California coastline, rodeos, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Niagara Falls, the Everglades, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the wild west town of Tombstone, Bryce Canyon, the Florida Keys, Mount Rainier National Park, the Adirondacks, the Grand Canyon, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Ozarks, Yellowstone National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Disney resorts, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount Rushmore, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Appalachians, Route 66, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park 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.
