If you're ever in Chesaning, Michigan.
The little shopping mall there, supposedly there's a ghost that hangs out inside there, i've never seen it, but i've heard many tales about it.

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.
Hmmm...if they eggs did hatch then I'm gonna take my friends kids to Frederick County and see if they get swooped up! They are about as disobdient as they come! haha!!

There is a place near Gettsburg where everyone thinks that their car is rolling up hill but, actually it's just an illusion that it's up hill. The car is really rolling down.

Aside from the weird happenings in my apartment and the absolutely freaky activity at the church where I work? There's a legend about the local woods...there's supposed to be the spirits of Native Americans (mostly women and children) who drowned when a flash flood came through in the early 1800's. Seems if you go on a certain path they sometimes make themselves known.
