The Lady of the Lake
The legend of the Lady of the Lake dates back to the 1930s when a young woman was said to have died in a boat accident. Some say she still haunts the area, looking for help or revenge.
According to the legend, the woman appears as a wet and bedraggled woman in a white dress who flags down passing motorists and asks them for a ride. She tells them her name and address and then disappears from the back seat when they reach her destination. Sometimes, she leaves behind a puddle of water or a trace of her perfume. Many people claim to have encountered Anne over the years.
