Mendon - The witch tree
I have never been to the haunted witch tree in Mendon Utah, but I have heard of others going there. I guess there was a lady who was accused of witchcraft and was lured into the mountains of Mendon. She was then tied to a tree, and before being torched she cursed the land, and the tree she was tied to.
The tree to this day stands alone with a fence around it. Nothing else is there. No sounds of birds or animals, no other trees or plants. Just an eerie silence.
It is told that if you enter into the fence crazy things start happening.
It is said to be haunted by a mysterious lady dressed in black. She was very rich and was crossing the country with some men. The lady had a feeling the men was going to steal her money so she hid it somewhere down by the creek. When the lady wouldn't tell the men where she hid the money, they killed her and the money was never found. To this day, people go to the creek in search for the money, but they never find it. People have said to have seen her roaming the creek, keeping people away from her money and scaring people away from the haunted creek. Nobody knows what would happen to them if they found the money, and they hope they never find out.
