McConnell's Mill State Park
The old mill turned state park is home to many spirits who still roam the hills and Slippery Rock Creek.
When the mill was operational a man who worked there always walked the same path to work. He carried his lunch in a
box and a lantern. Rumor is the man died because of a malfuntion in the equipment. Some nights if you park your
car right above th emill th eman can be seen walking down the hill to mill. He goes into the mill a light seems to be
on and screams are heard coming from the mill.
There is also the spirit of a caretaker, Mose Whorton, who lived on the property
from the early 1930's until his death around 1960. Mose lived near the mill, in a cottage that no longer stands, the
only home he had known since he was 20 years old. Legend says that at the old mill in the dead of night, a honk of a
car horn will summon Mose.
