GLOWING HORSESHOE

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of the mysterious glowing horseshoe.

In Perry County, Ohio, there is a rumor about a glowing horseshoe. As the story goes, around the middle of the 1800’s a man by the name of James Henry was a resident of the county. He was in love with two women and could not decide which one he wished to marry.

While out in his buggy one night, he fell asleep. Normally, his horse would pull the buggy home, but on this night, the horse pulled the buggy to the home of one of the young ladies. At this time, he knew he was destined to marry this lady. For a long time, the couple lived very happily, until the woman fell ill and passed away. She was buried in Otterbein Cemetery.

Every day James would visit and place flowers on his wife’s grave. One day while visiting his wife, the other woman he had been courting was at the cemetery. Their romance began again and they were married.

He was so involved with the new love of his life that was once the old love of his life, that he quit visiting his wives grave. All the flowers he had placed so carefully died. One day, a man was passing by the cemetery and noticed a bloody horseshoe on the tombstone of his wife. The man went to visit James and explained this was a bad omen. James ignored the warning. The very next day, James’s new wife found him dead in the stables with an imprint of a horseshoe on his forehead.

The legend says on a foggy night, if you listen quietly, you will hear the sound of the horse’s hoof’s going up and down the road near by Otterbein Road and the horseshoe on the wives grave will glow.
