In every state there are different urban legends. In Florida here we have a few urban legends. There are some that are a lot better than others. There are two I would love to share with you. I think these two are the best ones here. One of these days I would like to go and check them out. That's if I don't chicken out!
The Cassadaga Devil Chair – Devil’s chairs are a type of funeral sculpture that were frequently added to 19th Century graves, but have become major sources of legend. The one in a Cassadaga cemetery is apparently home to a ghost that really loves beer. Leave an unopened can of the stuff on the bench and it will be opened and drained by morning. Not good enough? Sit in the chair and you’ll see The Devil.
An Ancient Battle with a Giant Alligator Leads to the Strange Spook Hill – The title really says it all. Centuries ago, a Native American chief battled an enormous gator to protect his Lake Wales village, leading to both their deaths. Pioneers later named the area of battle Spook Hill, since their horses experienced great difficulty riding through the area. Today, cars seem to roll uphill in the area when put into neutral. It’s a very complex legend for what is really an optical illusion, like other so-called “gravity hills.” The area looks like cars go uphill when they are actually going downhill.
Like I said these are the two best ones that are local around me. So hopefully one day I can come back to this post and let you know if they are true or not. I really would love to try them out, but I am kind of afraid of all the ghost and spooky stuff.
