    Folklore, Legends, Ghosts, Monsters, Myths and Scary Stories in Pennsylvania

    The fragrant spirit of the Cornerstone Bed and Breakfast, Philadelphia; the ghosts of the huge Swedish Governor Printz and his friends, who burned down his former home, Printzhof (Printz Hall), shortly after a spectral party where the living caretaker was forced to play the violin (the foundations of Printzhof were rediscovered in 1937 in what is now Governor Printz Park in Essington, Tinicum Island and your best chance of seeing a repeat of the phantom revelry is on the evening of the autumnal equinox); the weird tales of Hexenkopf (Witches Head or, in this context, Witches Hill), in Williams township, where witches or "weird women" once danced and which is still the haunt of a headless hound walked by a headless man, phantom cavalrymen, the spirit of a white fox and the tapping of a wooden leg (a disabled farmer fell to his death while limping after a demon); the camera loving spirits of Omni Bedford Springs Resort, Bedford, who appear unexpectedly on developed photographs; Nurse Rachel, who still cares for wounded soldiers in the Gettysburg Hotel, Gettysburg; the evil eye of Molly "Mom" Rinker, a witch and revolutionary spy whose lookout was Mom Rinker's Rock in Fairmount Park, near Wissahickon Creek in Philadelphia; the ghosts of the historic Riverside Inn in Cambridge Springs, who waltz to spectral music or cheekily join guests in bed; and the ghosts of hanged men who wander the eighteenth century Jean Bonnet Tavern in Bedford, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Pennsylvania.

    The lachrymose squonk of the northern woods, so mortified by its unattractiveness that if you see it, it will liquify into its own tears; the headless horseman of the Lebanon Valley near Fort Indiantown Gap; the terrors of St Peter's Church Cemetery, Philadelphia, including ghosts of Native Americans, a black man in eighteenth century dress and a carriage and horses that career through the graveyard into the church; the many spirits of Farnsworth House Inn, Gettysburg, including the caring Nurse Mary but also children, other women, cats and confederate soldiers (beware of the misogynistic Walter); the Baleroy Mansion's spirits, including Thomas Jefferson (don't sit in the cursed chair if you want to live); the eponymous spectre of Betsy Ross House, Philadelphia; the yells and screams of Native American warriors and their victims, a woman and two children, which may still be heard in a small valley close to the mouth of Chartiers Creek near Pittsburgh (ghostly orbs or death lights are also sometimes seen); and the spirits of the seventeenth century King George II Inn (which claims to be the oldest inn in the USA) in Bristol, including a man in a top hat, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Pennsylvania.

    The ghosts of Moonshine Church and cemetery in Fort Indiantown Gap; the crock of gold in southern Chester County, hidden by a British spy who died just before he could reveal its whereabouts; the monster of Wolf Pond, a thirty foot black serpent with yellow stripes and a green head; black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) including the same one that frightened a Texan airman; Mitche, the manitou of Mauch Chunk (Bear Mountain) who created the chasm of the Lehigh River, just so a lake would burst its bounds and drown the warrior chief Onoko and his bride, whose love and happiness the manitou resented; the mischievious spirits of Inn Philadelphia, including one that pulls the hair of diners; the phantoms of numerous prisoners in Eastern State Penitentiary, closed to living prisoners but not to tourists, in Philadelphia (a "Lady in White", the Soap Lady, haunts a cell on the second floor); and the treasure chest of the Lebanon Valley, near Fort Indiantown Gap (sometimes called Indian Gap), protected by witches, blue fire, loud roars and, presumably, GIs (the treasure is gold hidden by the Doan brothers, British spies and outlaws of the revolutionary period, who were driven to crime when their father, a staunch Quaker, was physically branded and stripped of his property for refusing to support the war), are more weird folklore associated with Pennsylvania.

    The door-slamming spirits of 18th century Cashtown Inn, Orrtanna; the spirit of chocolate supremo Mr Hershey himself, still haunting the Hershey Hotel in Hershey; the manifestation of the Virgin Mary to save her painting, which hung in St Mary's Immaculate Conception church in Johnstown, from the flood which devastated the city in 1889 (in 2013 it was donated by the Benedictine Sisters to the Johnstown Heritage Association and now hangs in the Grand Halle, on the site of the original church) (incidentally, a 1926 silent movie called The Johnstown Flood starred Janet Gaynor and featured Gary Cooper, Clark Gable and Carole Lombard as extras); the phantom soldiers of Devil's Den, Gettysburg; the ghostly waiter in the City Tavern, Philadelphia, who was accidentally killed in a fight between two other people; the hauntings of the historic Tillie Pearce House Inn in Gettysburg, especially the Blue Room; the several ghosts in Bucksville House Bed & Breakfast in Kintnersville, including the man in a black hat who stands at the foot of a bed; the haunted Century Inn in Scenery Hill; the playful blonde girl and the spirits of railway workers that haunt the Railroad House Inn in Marietta; and tales of John Chapman, the real nurseryman and Swedenborgian missionary known as Johnny Appleseed, who planted his first apple nursery near Warren, are yet more strange folktales of Pennsylvania.

    Mammals, Birds, Reptiles and other Wildlife / Fauna of Pennsylvania

    Coyotes, otters, bald eagles, black bears, gray squirrels, wild turkeys, gray foxes, white-tailed deer, ospreys, snowshoe hares, minks, muskrats, red foxes, beavers, raccoons, mergansers and hellbender salamanders (also called devil dogs or Allegheny alligators and which can grow to over fifteen inches and weigh nearly six pounds) are among the wild animals of Pennsylvania.
