Goll Woods – The Goll family was one of the first to settle in Williams County. They were eventually banished into the woods near where a park area and small cemetery are today. The father, being the last to die, wore that he would forever haunt the woods. There is a bridge in the woods and legend says that if you park your car on it and flash your headlights twice, you can hear the sounds of someone being hanged from the bridge. Additionally, strange balls of light and a large black tombstone that is always warm to the touch is located in the small cemetery.


Camp Diclair – The swings in the camp’s park swing back and forth by themselves at night, even when there is no wind. When a flashlight is shined on the swings, they will stop. (Credits: Jess)

 Nettle Lake 

Nettle Lake – The ghostly sound of an Indian drum can be heard before thunderstorms. The drum belonged to a man named Sam Coon, who used to drum in order to summon the spirits of dead Indian chiefs in an attempt to find treasure. When Sam died, his drum was found busted.
