Description:
Every community has them: those weird little stories of ghosts, bogymen, things that go bump in the night and just plain strange happenings and humans. Share your stories with the world through this Waymark category!
Expanded Description:

Volumes of books have been written about those weird locations scattered across the globe. From spots as legendary as Stonehenge to bizarre local stories like Gravity Hill. From those scary stories told on the back roads of America to those Roadside Attractions that just don't make sense. They send shivers down our spines and sometimes just make us wonder about ourselves, our neighbors and the world we live in.

This Waymark category was inspired by Weird U.S. the other books in this series (Weird New Jersey, Weird Florida, Weird Illinois, Weird Wisconsin and more to come). I've found several of the spots mentioned in these books myself and thought it would be great to catalog their locations on the Waymarking site.

So share your local weirdness with the rest of the World-Wide Weird!
