New for Scary Scenes for 2012!
The Legend of the Haunted Cider Mill
According to locals, ever since his tragic death in 1845 the
ghost of Johnny Appleseed has been known to return to roam the
Michigan orchards of apple trees that he planted nearly 200
years ago. Born in Massachusetts on September 26th,
1774, Johnny Appleseed’s real name was John Chapman. Many of us
already know that Johnny grew up with a great love for apples
that inspired him to spend 49 years of his life roaming the
American wilderness planting apple seeds. Most people don’t
know, however, that Johnny’s great love for apples made him hate
the new invention of the cider mill that would soon chop up his
precious apples into a fine pulp before squeezing their life
juice from them.
Dating back to the mid-1800s, workers at Country Mill Farms in
Charlotte, Michigan have sensed an eerie presence lurking around
their cider mill and orchard late at night. Some have claimed
to see a tall slender man with a cooking pot on his head
swinging an axe wildly. Others just remember seeing a pair of
bare feet following them through the night. The current owners
of the cider mill have reported several, unexplainable
occurrences around their farm that can only be attributed to a
mysterious presence. Some even say this is a Michigan haunted
house and it isn't just at Halloween.
While some believe that this is the ghost of Johnny Appleseed
others believe that he was much too kind and that it must be the
ghost of his evil twin brother. Whatever you believe, this
frightening Michigan ghost has come to be known as “Johnny
Frank-n-Seed.” Johnny Frank-n-Seed continues to seek revenge for
all of the apples that have been mutilated throughout the years
in the cider mill. His victims could soon face the same fate!
