I grew up hearing all of these cool stories about ghosts & hauntings in this area. I don't care if you believe in the paranormal I just want to see how many stories are out there that is actually from this area. I think it would be an appropriate topic for this time of the year. We are so close to Halloween. I know of a few tales that can be told.

There was a nurse that worked in Ironton at the hospital. She was in love with a real bad boy. I really do not know exactly where they were from. Her head ended up in Pine creek after her boyfriend decapitated her. Her body too was dumped in there, although it was never recovered. She was over the payroll at the hospital in Ironton, now closed. Her boyfriend talked her into stealing it & converting the cash into their ticket out of this place. She did it & had reportedly a large suitcase full of money. However he did not want to include her in the larger plan. He killed her, cut off her head & dumped it in Pinecreek, supposedly down where they just competed that new bridge. He also dumped her bodyin that flood water. They say it was never found. The suitcase came open somehow in his haste to finish, & most of the money fell down into the water. Pinecreek was flooded at the time & took it very quickly down stream. He did not prosper from the money since it floated out on fast water to the Ohio River. They say you can hear the poor woman cry late at night when the creek is flooded to this day. She cries for a life not completed & trusting her bad boy lover. They were going to get married & use the money to start a new life away from here. None of the money was ever recovered except for a few token bills. I personally have never heard the voice or cries & I grew up very close to where it happened. I was guilty of looking for the money.

Yes, there was two old mansions very close up on top of the hill. One was large & very nice the other one was housing for servants & it also had a large generator in the basement. The last family was Crawfords & the man was supposedly a doctor. He had an office in the large house. He also used the place as a tuberculous clinic. The place was vacant for years. The story told to me was he had two daughters & they were afraid to marry. They were afraid someone would just marry them for their money. Originally the property was owned by a family (don't know the name)that mined the area for iron ore. Anyway the houses were left empty but completely furnished. They were vandalized & reputed to be haunted. It was also said the date of your death would be revealed to you there. They finally fell in & the sites bulldozed & the old sites are now a pasture. I know many people from this area that visited the old houses & were scared silly. One man visited that house & died within the week. His friends reported that he had seen something that scared him terribly.

Oh boy I think I have everyone started!!! I have always heard about the headless woman at the bottom of Caddo Hill near the bottom by that little bridge at the bottom, the old timers always told me that was where a trough was to water your horse before going up the hill & that headless woman would come out crying & holding out her hands for you to follow her. The monster there also followed you up & down the hill. I know several people that will not walk that hill at night & I don't think they were high, justa little drunk. I have also heard the story about that mean man that drug his wife behind a team of work horses & killed her. They do say that snow will not cover his grave, due to the fires of Hell awaiting him.

Does anyone know what the monster on Caddo Hill was supposed to be? Wonder why it never followed any further? I wonder if it is still there? I wouldn't want to breakdown on that hill!! A friend walked down that hill & it terrified him. He would never walk it again. He said that if he stopped to try to listen the thing would stop & if he speeded up the thing speeded up. I wonder what would happen if it caught you? Would it show you what it was?
I have also heard stories about the hanging tree between the bridge & those mansions on Clinton Furnace. Has anybody heard anything about that? It is supposed to be that huge sycamore tree on the left by the forks in the road. When the iron furnaces were there, I guess if someone screwed up, they held a court & found you innocent or guilty & if you were guilty, well you were hung from that big tree. If what you did was something bad enough to be hung for.
My mom also used to tell a story about a house in this area that had blood stains on the floor & walls that would not wash off. Anyone hear that one?
Someone told me they used to hear a story about a haunting at the fanny mines on 140 close to S. Webster. Has anyone heard that one to share? I would love, love to hear it!!!!

I have heard this same story, I heard the woman was supposed to have cheated on him or something. I wonder was there ever any houses on that hill? I always wondered who owned that hill & why no one ever built there or did anything with it. You think they were afraid of the Caddo Hill Monster?

Are you from Bloom or Vernon township? If you are it is off Lick Run Lyra, the big hill after passing Worm's Archery shop. At the top of the hill will pass Silver Eagles Archery club, if you go straight will go to Poplar Fork, if you turn left will take you to Clinton Furnace, out where those old mansions were, if you go right it will take you to the Burg on Lick Run Lyra Road. Do you know the hill now?

I hope to hear some more good stories that are from this general area. Hopefully they will be as the other stories and be true stories or at least based on the truth. Even most legends have a ring of truth in them. Anybody know a tragic &/or, scary story from this area, let's share them. Keep our legends & stories alive for all even if the subjects are long gone fom here!!!!

There was a house on the top of dennison hill on the left. Back in the early 90s a woman lived there, and she heard demon voices in there, and jars of food she had canned bursted. She moved shortly after. It was a 2 story house. The driveway has two entrances that meet and turn into one. Then you would turn left and the house was at the end. She was so scared this happened more than one time in that house.

My mom said that in the last 50 years there has never been anything built on that hill.... Said last she heard a woman bought all of that and she doesn't live around here.
