  1. The ghost train of Mt. Healthy:
    (this story is in more than one book about true ghost storys!)
    Fact:
    Mt. Healthy was originally named Mount Pleasant. When the time came to name our town officially they found out there was already a Mount Pleasant somewhere else so they decided to name it Mount Healthy. They came up with the name Mount Healthy because in the 18 hundreds there was a big chlora(spelling?) outbreak in Cincinnati which killed a whole lot of people. But most of the people that lived up here in Mount Healthy did not get sick because of our elevation that made our water keep running so it did not stagnate.
    Legend:
    the trains that used to run from cincinnati to Mt. Healthy was not allowed to stop during the epidemic because the people in Mount Healthy were afraid of contamination so many people died. Now in present time you can hear the whistle of the ghost train when you are standing in the alleys of Mount Healthy.
    Fact:
    You really can hear train whistles in and around Mt. Healthy at certain times which to me seems related to weather conditions. It is actually the trains that still run through Northside that can be heard!

  2. There is a home at 11 willowood in Walton Kentucky that is said to be haunted with footsteps heard at night and doors and cabinets opening on their own. People say they hear voices at night and can see shadows moving when the home is dark. Supposedly someone used a ouija board there and conjured up zozo. Children and animals are said to see someone or something inside the home at night. I heard the thing there comes at night around 3:33 am.
