Scary Stories, Myths, Ghosts, Monsters, Folklore and Legends in Ohio
The girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; the Cry Baby Bridge in Norton, Akron, where at midnight the ghostly sight and sound of a mother throwing her baby into the river may be witnessed; the spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance; the phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo; and the hauntings of Franklin Castle (a private residence, so do not linger), Cleveland, including a crying child and unexplained music (in spite of its name and reputation as Ohio's most haunted house, it looks to me like a typical Victorian dwelling), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Ohio.
The ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; the entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati; stories of Johnny Appleseed, a real nurseryman and missionary whose real name was John Chapman (he planted many apple nurseries in the Mohican area of Ohio); the frog-like dwarves of Loveland; the "melon heads" of Kirtland, similar to those of Connecticut and Michigan (I also suspect that the New York legend of swollen-headed Catskill gnomes owes its origin to melonheads); and the story of Indian fighter Bill Quick, who had ninety-nine human skulls displayed as trophies in his cabin near Kenton and, on his death bed, made his son Tom swear to add the hundredth, little knowing that the hundredth trophy in the cabin would be placed there by a Native American warrior and would be Tom's own skull (there certainly was a Tom Quick, notorious for killing Native Americans indiscriminately, and the legend probably grew from a desire to create justice in legend if not in reality), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.

You cannot claim to have seen the world unless you have travelled in the USA. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Skagway, Boston, Atlantic City, Kansas City, New Orleans, Indianapolis, Juneau, Washington DC, Miami, New York, Fairbanks, Sacramento, Chicago, Honolulu, Salt Lake City, Houston, Seattle, Savannah, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Sitka, Detroit, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, St Louis, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Phoenix, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas, Anchorage, Corpus Christi and San Diego. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Okefenokee Swamp, the wild west town of Tombstone, the California coastline, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Bryce Canyon, Mount Rushmore, the Everglades, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Adirondacks, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, the Appalachians, Glacier Bay National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Niagara Falls, the Disney resorts, Mount Rainier National Park, rodeos, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Florida Keys, the Ozarks, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Grand Canyon, Route 66 and Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America. Good luck on your travels.
