Colonel Buck's cursed tomb in Bucksport, Maine (named for Buck, who founded the town), is said to be haunted. The story goes that Colonel Buck had an affair with a Native American woman and when she became pregnant, he murdered her by burning her. Supposedly, her leg rolled out of the fire. Her mother, a spiritual healer, was said to have cursed his family to never be rid of her. The monument contains a stain of a boot or leg-shaped figure, despite being replaced repeatedly by the Buck family to get rid of the stain. Stories have evolved over the years, but this place is blamed for many maladies by the residents of the area.
Located in tranquil McGregor, Iowa, another scary attraction awaits. The Spook Cave Underground Tour features a boat tour through a watery cave, said to be haunted. The cave is low in many points and ducking does become necessary in many parts. Camping is a popular activity at the site as well.
In Clear Lake, Iowa, there is another haunting tribute. The location of the Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and Big Bopper plane crash site is the perfect paranormal stop for music fans. A steel monument is also present on the site. Iowa is one macabre state, because also located within its boundaries is the Villisca Ax Murder House and Museum. This location was the site of a heinous crime which took the lives of six members of the Moore family (including children) and two of their young overnight guests in June, 1912. To this day, the murder remains unsolved. It is certainly a creepy place to visit for those interested in the paranormal.
