Haunted! - Twistabout Ridge
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This small mountain in Clay County is home to many curious tales
from a hanging tree to death via stoning. However, the most
notorious tale is of a man, his wife, a servant girl, and a nurse.
Legend has it that a wealthy, prestigious couple moved into the
area many years ago. The wife was with child but shortly after they
settled into the area, the new servant girl was also found to be
with child. Soon after, the wife fell ill and a local nurse was
hired to care for her but did not succeed. Once the wife passed
away, the nurse and the man were married but despite many tries,
they were never able to have children. Rumor has it that the reason
for the infertility was a curse for their wrongdoings. It is also
said that a pregnant woman in white haunts Twistabout Ridge and
infant screams can also be heard.
