YOUR PICKS FOR

BEST LOCAL URBAN LEGEND

 

09/20/07 - Volume One


1st Place:  the Caryville hauntings

2nd Place:  the East Hill elephant

3rd Place:  the Stone's Throw ghost

Honorable Mention:  Acid Andy

 

The Chippewa Valley may not have stories of a crazy escaped madman with a hook for a hand, but we'll match our urban legends with any region. 

 

Caryville not only has a haunted schoolhouse, but also Blackie the shadowy demon, the ghost of Mary Dean, and hellhounds roaming the cemetery and lake.  Check out paranormal expert Chad Lewis's web site (www.unexplainedresearch.com) for details. 

 

Years ago, a circus elephant died in the Third Ward and its bones were moved to the East Hill.  Where are those bones today?  Do any of the many local bar ghosts know the answer? 

 

Perhaps the ghost residing at the Stones Throw (304 Eau Claire St.), who has been known to spin rolls of toilet paper and call out the employee's names, has the answer.

 

Honorable Mention:  Local kids grew up hearing about Acid Andy, a genius college student who fell into a bathtub of acid he was mixing years ago and now walks among us as a street person.  Booga booga booga!  Rob Reid
