Scary Stories, Folklore, Legends, Myths, Ghosts and Monsters in Massachusetts
The sea serpents that have been seen around Cape Ann and Massachusetts Bay; the Roxbury pudding stones, said to be the remains of a giant's dessert, found near Boston; the alchemist who sought the elixir or life, in a turreted house at the junction of Essex and North Streets, in Salem; the spectre of the stubborn septuagenarian Giles Corey, which appears as a harbinger of disaster in Salem where, being pressed to death with weights over two days for refusing to plead to the charge of witchcraft, Corey merely shouted "more weight!" (although it was the only instance of pressing a man to death in New England history and cruel even for its time, Judge Corwin, whose house still stands in Salem, actually stood on Coreys chest, demanding that he plead); tales of witchcraft and witch hunting, although the Salem witch trials are history, not legend; the altar in Wizard's Glen near Dalton, where a hunter called John Chamberlain rescued a Native American girl who was to be sacrificed to the demons of the forest; and the Dover Demon, possibly an ET, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Massachusetts.
The "spectral evidence" submitted at the Salem witch trials, supported by the "expertise" of that credulous chronicler, Cotton Mather (in witchcraft trials, if you could prove that you were elsewhere at the time of the alleged crime, it was actually held AGAINST you, as it was believed that one of your apparitions was a demonic spectre - "You were in two places at once, eh? Condemned out of your own mouth!"); Captain Alfred Bulltop Stormalong (Stormalong, A.B. geddit?), the gigantic captain of the massive ships Courser and Tuscarora, whose many adventures included life or death struggles with the deadly kraken; the mounted spirits of Lafayette and Washington who keep watch over the grave of Satan, who was captured and killed by Shakers at Mount Sinai; speculation and rhymes about Lizzie Borden, acquitted of the axe murders of her parents (their home in Fall River, at the time of writing, is the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast Museum, allegedly haunted and with an ouija board in the lounge); the giant Maushope of Native American legend, who lived on Martha's Vineyard; the demon that finally clawed a retired pirate to death at Cape Cod; Spring Heel Jack (Spring Heeled Jack) who terrorised London, England, many years before emigrating to Cape Cod; and the supernatural sinking of the island where stands the Nix's Mate beacon, named after the ship's mate who cursed the island before being wrongly executed for killing Captain Nix, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Massachusetts.
