Today in 565 AD, St, Columba reported seeing the Loch Ness Monster. I wonder how he would feel if he knew people were still talking about Nessie today.
Around Luverne, legend has it that Jesse James jumped his horse across a ridiculously wide gap at the Devil’s Gulch in Garretson, SD, running away from Northfield and the disastrous raid there. I have seen the gap and I seriously doubt a horse could jump it, but what do I know? Luvernites also believe that a tornado will never strike the town because of some special characteristics of the Blue Mounds formations to the north of the city. Maybe. Maybe, though, we have just been lucky.
Any legends from where you have lived or where you grew up? What is your favorite urban legend?
