    Happy to see it's Deep Ones as my state's representatives
    here.

    ... little confused to see them so far from the satellite campus of Y'ha-nthlei in Lake Erie, but still...

    The folklore of it is that shortly after the battle, there were plans to tear down the mission shortly after the battle. This failed when the soldiers ordered to do so were menaced of by ghosts.

    A lot of people in the area I live actually believe the place is haunted. Came to mind mostly because it's local to me, but I wasn't sure if that aspect was a thing up north.

    The Wompus Cat is all over the American south east. I have heard every thing from it was black beard's cat to it being a Cherokee legend. A large cat with shape shifting powers.

    Quite a good-looking wolf, there.

    Edit; As someone in Texas, let me leave a reminder here that the Alamo is said to be still standing because the ghosts of its defenders prevented the original demolition attempts.

    Favorites are Mel's Hole and the Nightcrawlers. The Bell Witch goes without saying because it's a classic

    They Have one of those books for every state. They often have them in the reference section of the local library too. And here in Georgia we have everything from Emily isabella Burt, our states resident werewolf, to the Georgia guide stones which contain instructions for humanity to follow after a hypothetical apocalypse.

    In the case of Polybius, watch the special episode the (usually) fiction podcast The Truth did on it. If it was real, it was totally either a weird way to soften up people in some way before the GM turned them into Cryptid horrors or a trap by a True Fae looking for new playthings
