Conkle’s Hollow State
Nature Preserve
Rockbridge, OH 43149

Conkle's is in Hocking Hills State Park. Native Americans once living in the area would rob settlers traveling through the area and hide their loot in the caves and hollows that are now along the trail. Several of the thieves were caught, but not before they could hide their treasure in Conkle's Hollow. They were hanged in a hollow and to this day, it is said you can see their shadows roaming up and down the trails.

Scotts Creek Falls
Logan, OH 43138

In August of 1887 while driving a load of wheat to Logan, newlyweds 19 year-old Clara and 29 year-old Johannes Bensenhafer began to cross Scotts Creek, only to have their wagon slip into what is known as the "Death Hole", a 15 foot pool with undertow. Tragically, they both drowned. After, people swore they heard the sound of ghostly chatter of the couple along Scotts Creek Road and the creek itself. Then, they would hear the horses screaming in the area and saw a woman walking by the water.
