If you were around during the summer of 1973, you might remember this. There were dozens of sightings in Illinois of a Bigfoot-like creature that became known as the "Big Muddy Monster". This is one legend that was very real for many nearly 50 years ago.
It was built in 1869 and has gone through many different owners, but they all seem to agree on one thing. McPike Mansion is one of the most haunted locations in Illinois and now you can see what it's like inside...if you dare.
Have you heard the tall tale of the werewolf near Sugar Creek around Troy, Missouri? Neither had I...until now. There is definitely some truth buried beneath the generations of Missourians telling this story.
You're gonna be surprised when you hear this, but there's a story of an Illinoisan going into the woods and seeing something totally unexpected. He saw...trees. Oh, wait. That's not unexpected at all, but it really is kind more scary than you think.
