Monsters, Legends, Scary Stories, Myths, Folklore and Ghosts in Ohio
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); 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 girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; the ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; 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.
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 phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo; the entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati; 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); the spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance; and the frog-like dwarves of Loveland, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.
The United States of America is famous for the comfort of its hotels. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Seattle, Albuquerque, Salt Lake City, Lake Tahoe, Houston, New York, Skagway, Chicago, Atlantic City, Los Angeles, Miami, Sitka, Boston, Savannah, Honolulu, Washington DC, Indianapolis, Anchorage, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Fairbanks, Kansas City, San Francisco, Corpus Christi, San Diego, Dallas, Santa Fe, New Orleans, Sacramento, Juneau, St Louis, Fort Lauderdale, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Detroit and Phoenix are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include The Adirondacks, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Florida Keys, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Mount Rushmore, Bryce Canyon, the Disney resorts, the Okefenokee Swamp, Niagara Falls, Yellowstone National Park, the California coastline, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, the Everglades, Mount Rainier National Park, rodeos, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Route 66, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Ozarks, the wild west town of Tombstone and the Appalachians.
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. From camelopard.com, a heartfelt Bon Voyage!
