Heard of These Missouri Top Urban Legends?
Most times, when we see lists like this on the internet, we're usually disappointed because we've never heard of any of them. In this case, these are stories that you have mostly heard of!
We also learned a few things. For instance, one of the Top 10 most haunted places in the U.S. is in St. Louis. There's also a place called "zombie road" in the Show-Me State. We also found out that there are a number of consequences for sitting on the "devil's chair" at midnight, Friday the 13th, Halloween, etc. One of them is "a hand will rise from a grave and drag you down into hell." We're not really superstitious, but with a severe consequence like that, we don't know that we're willing to take a chance.
Are there any interesting local urban legends that you know of? In northeast Missouri, everybody has heard about an old cemetery - locally known as Screamin' Johnny's - where one can supposedly hear screaming in the middle of the night. We don't know exactly what the story is that led to Johnny screaming, but they say you can hear him screaming.
