American Folklore 101

It's just 1 per state so speed on! If you ever read any of these Urban Legends at Snopes; it's either true, false or undetermined either way!

I'll post #1 and then you guys and gals carry on taking turns posting the next one, and so on. A little interaction can rejuvenate alternative news web sites like this one. So let's give it a try!

#1 - Alabama: Dead Children's Playground

Why it's creepy: This eerie playground adjacent to Maple Hill, Huntsville's oldest cemetery, doesn't just have an eerie nickname for fun. The playground was presumably designed to entertain kids while their parents visited the graves of loved ones. Legend has it, though, that the spirits of children who've been buried in the cemetery since the first grave was dug there in 1822 come out to play at night. The living have observed orbs of light going down the slide, seen swings moving on their own, and even heard giggling. Creepier still, some say the spirits include victims of a rash of child murders that happened in the '60s, when bodies were rumored to have been found in the area that now houses the playground.
Where it came from: The playground itself wasn't opened until 1985, so you can imagine how much pent-up energy the tiny spirits had after 163 years without a slide. In 2007, the city tried to raze the park to make more room for graves and removed the slides and swings overnight. After public outcry, it was replaced with more modern equipment, making it slightly less creepy to look at, and also probably resulting in some happier ghosts. -- Andy Kryza

When my distant turn comes around I hope I get to redo Indiana!
