The shadow people, with glowing red eyes, that lurk in the town of Maryville; the gold mine in the Ozarks, eighteen miles south west of the town of Galena, which is guarded by the skeletal ghosts of seven Spanish miners; the large, black, feline Ozark Howler, the glowing eyes of which may cause the death of those it looks upon; the Osage Native American ghostly wedding ceremony that is sometimes heard and occasionally seen, in the Bridal Cave of Thunder Mountain Park in Camdenton; the Spook Light of the Devil's Promenade, near Joplin (is it a lantern held by a ghostly miner or headless Native American, or is it the spectral light of Native American lovers who died in a lover's pact?); and strange phenomena at the Kemp Mansion Restaurant and Inn, St Louis, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Missouri.
