The Lady in the Lake
There are many stories associated with this quarry. There are tales of spectral green lights and drownings. But the most poignant story is the story of a young woman afflicted with polio. Apparently the disease crippled her and reduced her to a shell of a woman. Her husband was left to care for her, but he wasn't really up to the job. He took her out to the quarry and rolled her into the water and watched her drown.
Many tell the story of this young woman. They say she comes out at night. She drifts across the water dressed in white. She is beautiful, like she was before the disease. She comes with the mist and when the mist touches the ground, the footprints she leaves behind aren't footprints at all. They are wheelchair tracks.
