Ghosts at White House Hotel?
I recently discovered that the White House Hotel at 232 Wharf Street in Hermann has been the subject of quite a few ghostly tales over the years.
Ghosts of Garnet, Montana
Garnet, Montana was built as a temporary town for the miners flooding in from California and Colorado. Amazingly, over a century after it was created, there are still parts of the of the ghost town remaining. There are also many stories that past residents of the old town remain as well.
Ghosts of Haw Branch Plantation
A few months later, Cary was sitting in the library reading when he glanced up at the portrait and noticed that a charcoal rose was turning pink! When he walked to the picture, he saw that the girl’s dark hair was lightening, and her gray skin was starting to take on a peach tone!
Ghosts of Pere Marquette Park
It is only recently that I learned of some ghostly tales regarding the beautiful lodge at Pere Marquette State Park, originally called the Piasa Bluffs State Park, outside of Grafton.
Ghosts of Richmond Bridge
The beautiful Richmond Stone Arch Bridge in Tasmania, Australia, is breathtaking to behold on a sunny day. By night, you might be even more surprised by what you see!
I have always loved bats.Maybe my infatuation with the flying mammals has something to do with my lifelong love of vampire movies and cave exploring. Of course, I might not feel so affectionate toward them if I encountered a bat with a twelve-foot wingspan and a face like a monkey!
Growing up in a small town on the banks of the Mississippi River, I remember hearing fantastic tales of divers seeing catfish as big as a man under the old Mark Twain Bridge that connected Missouri with Illinois. My research indicates that most rivers are accompanied by similar stories.
Giant Cryptid caught in Canada
The 1100 pound white sturgeon, believed to be over 100 years old, measured 12 feet 4 inches in length with a girth of 53 inches. The monster fish was caught and released on the Fraser River in British Columbia.
Giant Kangaroos in the Midwest
The children’s television series, Captain Kangaroo, was watched by kids all over America from 1955 to 1984. I know I loved watching it as a kid through the sixties. In 1973, another kangaroo-type creature made its appearance in the Midwest.
Giant Rabbits of England
I adore Jimmy Stewart in Harvey, the movie about the giant invisible rabbit. Of course, it would be rather difficult to “sight” an invisible rabbit. But, the townspeople of Felton in northeast England had their hands full in 2006, with a giant rabbit and his voracious appetite!
