Tug Hill Annie was born as Anna Joan Machowski in 1917, and she is the subject of a popular ghost legend in these parts. By her twenties she found herself married to a man called Alfred with four children, but she wasn’t happy, and took to drink. One night in 1954, while on a wine run, she was killed and decapitated in a car accident. Since then, a female ghost has occasionally been seen walking along Sears Pond Road. Over the years, the ghost has acquired the nickname Tug Hill Annie.
