Spooks, Spectres and Legends....

I know we've kind of done this before, but we've got some new folks since the last time.

Do you have any spooks, spectres or legends in your neck of the woods?

The lake I go to all the time nearby my house has a story, Lady of the Lake. I was just there 4th of July, I still haven't seen her. I hear that this story is at a lot of different lakes. Here is a link for details:

The only thing I can think of is from when I was still in Maryland, there was supposed to be a "sea monster" in the Chesapeake Bay (I guess that would make it a bay monster), Chessie I think they called it, you know something like the Loch Ness monster.

Another legend from Maryland, specifically Frederick County, where I grew up---the dread Snallygaster, which terrorized Middletown Valley. It would swoop down and carry off disobedient children. In the 1930s, the Middletown newspaper reported that as it flew over a still in some local woods, the Snallygaster was overcome by the fumes, fell into a moonshine vat and drowned. But legend says it left some eggs behind, which may have hatched ...

There is also a hill in Frederick County where, if you stop your car and put it in neutral, the car will roll uphill. The story goes that it's Civil War soldiers pushing the car up the hill as if it were a heavy artillery piece.

There are SO many ghostly legends in Frederick County that there are a couple books out about them. The area is very rich in Revolutionary and Civil War history.

There is a legend in NC Mountains about strange lights seen at various times throughout the year. There is another legend about a man that was killed on a railroad track and comes back to look for his head. People say they can see what looks like a lantern sort of floating in the air on this particular track. There is also a hitchhiker legend. So many variations on these legends lol some are told in other states.

I purchased a book called Weird Carolinas by Roger Manley that have more and specific NC lengends and haunts. They also put out books like this for other states.

There is a similar legend about a man killed nearby Summerville, SC who lost head. People have said to have seen the light of his lantern on Light Road to this day.
