Monsters, Folklore, Scary Stories, Ghosts, Legends and Myths in Indiana
Ghosts of the historic Hotel Attica in Attica, including an unwelcome back scratcher and a glowing spectre (are they the same spirit?); 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); 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 girl in yellow, a murder victim, whose spirit is still seen in Indiana University, Bloomington; 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 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; and strange stories about how mysterious boulders reached the crowns of trees (as high as eighty feet up) in Yellowwood State Forest, 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 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; the reptilian man, or possibly people, who lurk in the Ohio River; the phantom woman of the Rockport Inn Bed & Breakfast in Rockport; Oscar, the Beast of Busco, said to be a gigantic snapping turtle encountered near Churubusco; the lion-headed serpent of the Wabash, seen at Huntington; and the phantom Woman in Black who chases people in the area of East Third Street, Bloomington, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Indiana.

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. Be as familiar with famous places as you might like to be with famous people. Boston, Dallas, New Orleans, Skagway, Juneau, San Diego, Seattle, Houston, St Louis, Philadelphia, Corpus Christi, Chicago, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Miami, Honolulu, Washington DC, Fairbanks, Albuquerque, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Anchorage, Savannah, Sacramento, Sitka, Los Angeles, Lake Tahoe, New York, Santa Fe, Detroit, Atlantic City, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Fort Lauderdale, Kansas City and Atlanta. If you have seen those cities, you have at least seen the most famous ones in the USA. Visiting all fifty states is something that even most Americans cannot manage but it is possible to visit those cities, as well as other iconic destinations such as Glacier Bay National Park, the Adirondacks, the Ozarks, Mount Rainier National Park, Route 66, the Okefenokee Swamp, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the California coastline, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, rodeos, the Everglades, the wild west town of Tombstone, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Bryce Canyon, Yosemite National Park, the Florida Keys, the Appalachians, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Disney resorts, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Yellowstone National Park and Niagara Falls.
