At Jenny Jump State Forest, some say the ghost of Jenny lurks. Legend has it that she was 9 years old when she was playing on the cliffs, and the sudden appearance of a Native American nearby startled her. She called out to her father, who cried out in alarm, “Jump, Jenny, jump!” And Jenny did–unfortunately, to her death. Locals say her small, ghostly form can be seen in the vicinity of the cliffs.
