An uneasy soul lingers at Spirit Falls...

At this place called “Hell's Hollow," a legend is told, to this day, of an Indian named Harthegig who mysteriously disappeared one late October night.

Harthegig was a mean and angry Indian who would agitate all around him. Nine years after his disappearance, a skeleton was found. Believing the skeleton to be Harthegig, a murder was suspected. His spirit has since lingered in the Hollow, possibly the culprit of the strange sounds, especially vocal on dark and stormy nights.

Spirit Falls was named after many folks reported hearing moans, groans, laughter, and screams coming from the falls. Possibly an uneasy spirit lingers...

...listen closely, you just might hear something too!
