MoMo, the hairy, sasquatch-like Missouri Monster, that is believed to prey on the dogs of the town of Louisiana; the ghost of a young boy in Sauer Castle, Kansas City; the large, black, feline Ozark Howler, the glowing eyes of which may cause the death of those it looks upon; the ghostly boy haunting the Union Covered Bridge in the eponymous State Historic Site, where the boy drowned in the nineteenth century; hauntings of the historic Savoy Hotel and Grill in Kansas City, including that of Betsy Ward who, in the nineteenth century, died in her bath in room 505, as well as the spectre of Fred Lightner and, on the fourth floor, a little girl in Victorian dress, not to mention the strange behaviour of the elevator, which sometimes avoids the fourth floor and sometimes refuses to leave it; the shadow people, with glowing red eyes, that lurk in the town of Maryville; the bigfoot seen in Hillsboro (could it have been MoMo?); the pteradactyl of Altamont; the almost innumerable traditions, magical spells and superstitions of the Ozarks, some of which are recorded in Harold Bell Wright's novel The Shepherd of the Hills and in the John Wayne movie of the same name (though a rather different plot); and the Spook Light of the Devil's Promenade, near Joplin (is it a lantern held by a ghostly miner or headless Native American, or is it the spectral light of Native American lovers who died in a lover's pact?), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Missouri.

Try visiting Atlanta, Salt Lake City, New York, Detroit, Las Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles, Dallas, Sitka, Juneau, Atlantic City, New Orleans, Honolulu, Sacramento, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Savannah, Anchorage, Corpus Christi, Chicago, Skagway, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Miami, Boston, Seattle, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Fairbanks, St Louis, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Houston, Santa Fe, Fort Lauderdale and Albuquerque.
