Legends, Ghosts, Scary Stories, Myths, Folklore and Monsters in Alabama
The creation of Blue Pond near Oxford, by a great sinkhole that swallowed nearly two thousand Native Americans who had gathered to watch the burning of two suspected witches; the ghost of Colonel Tutwiler in the Tutwiler Hotel, Birmingham (more properly, as I write, called the mouthful "Hampton Inn and Suites Birmingham-Downtown-Tutwiler"); how the Space Camp in Huntsville combines modern science with ancient paranormal forces by being haunted by the ghost of a man bured in debris after an explosion; the horned Choccolocco monster that terrified the eponymous town (a man called Neal Williamson later claimed that he was the monster but you may choose not to believe him); the ghost of a woman and uncanny piano playing that haunt the Victoria Inn in Anniston; and the face embedded in a window of Pickens County Courthouse, Carrollton, thought by some to be the visage of an alleged criminal who cursed the town before he was lynched by an angry mob, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Alabama.

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. Happy travelling!
