On a cold winter night in 1934, Mary Bregovy went out dancing with a young beau at Oh Henry Ballroom. As the moon shone high and the hour grew late, the couple got into a heated argument and Mary angrily stormed out of the dance hall. Unfortunately though, she never made it home and instead became the victim of a gruesome hit-and-run accident along a dark road. Local legend maintains that the young woman’s ghost haunts the area to this day, dancing in her flowy white dress or hitchhiking along the surrounding highway.
