The Ada Witch

    Newer Older

    My photoshop riff on a classic Michigan ghost story, The Ada Witch. The Ada Witch by Amberrose Hammond from Michigan's Otherside explains:

    The legend says a woman during the 1800’s had been cheating on her husband. She would sneak off into the night to meet her lover. Her husband began to suspect she was up to something and pretended to fall asleep one night. After his wife got up and snuck away, he followed her and found her in the arms of another man. Rage welled up inside him and in an instant, the husband attacked the adulterous couple, killing his wife first. The two men fought until they both died from the wounds they inflicted upon each other.

    For many years now, people say they have heard the sounds of a fight taking place around the Findley area, only to find no one around. The area at one point must have been open for hunting before it was developed into a residential area. There have been reports from hunters feeling a presence in the area, hearing the ghostly fight, getting tapped on the shoulder only to find no one there and even seeing a ghostly woman in white.

    Happy Halloween folks and if you want to see some of the stuff we've been gathering for the season, check out Absolute Michigan's Halloween section.
