Headless Indian Chiefs - Walker's Town

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Headless Indian Chiefs - Walker's Town

During the 1830s in the Indian village called Walker’s Town, incidents led to the death of two Native American chiefs. The deceased chiefs’ heads mysteriously came into the possession of a Dr. Joseph R. Buchanan of Cincinnati, Ohio, who thought he could learn from the dead by studying their skulls. No one is certain what eventually became of the two men’s heads. Legend has it that the restless spirits of two decapitated Native American chiefs walk here on foggy nights, looking for their heads.
