Murder At The Gazebo

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
If I had a day that I could give you
I'd give to you a day just like today
If I had a tale that I could tell you
I'd tell a tale sure to make you smile
If I had a wish that I could wish for you
I'd make a wish for sunshine all the while.
 Yoohoo   I, Sweet William The Scot, am at the bottom of the picture! SEE ME.  Now like the song says I am going to tell you a tale.
That is better you can see me now! 
I am at the Gazebo at Mirror Lake in Eden Park.
It is truely a beautiful place.  Outdoor weddings take place here and model photoshoots and .....
George Remus a bootlegger on October 6, 1927  shot Imogene, his wife, as she ran from her car on the road along side the Gazebo. The gun was found the next spring by a child hunting for Easter eggs near the Gazebo. 
Since that time, there have been reports of sightings of a woman in a long black dress seen near the Gazebo, usually at dusk, and often around the time of year when Imogene Remus was shot, in early October. As the leaves fall from the trees in Eden Park around the Gazebo, people have seen the shadowy figure of the woman nearby, crying quietly and looking out over the park’s reflecting pool, though if approached, the woman disappears.
Remus was never punished for her death. Who knows, but the life and legend of George Remus has always been a classical tale, so it is only fitting that it has a ghost story associated with it as well.
This picture was taken last October.
Have you ever seen a ghostly Apparition?
In December I showed you the poinsettia display at the Krohn Conservatory and said all the miniature natural places were real in Cincinnati.  Well here is the miniature Gazebo.  
Cincinnati has a great Queen City Underground history.  Maybe sometime I will take you under my city.
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine

  13. That is spooky Sweet William. The Michaels where my mom works has a lady ghost. People that work some overnight shifts have seen doors open and shut and no one else is in the store. Sometimes when the store opens in the morning, stuff is all thrown off the shelves and broken, weird!!

  18. Wow that was a good story! Thanks Sweet William - I love spooky things :o)

  19. Sir William, we love a good ghost story in this house! Thanks for sharing this one. By the way, we had a cardinal in the backyard for two days last week. His song was so beautiful. Did you know that cardinals are harbingers of faith? When you see them it means you are to "keep the faith" as a trying time may be coming.
    *high paws* my fellow Scot!

  20. BOL Sir William!! I just saw your comment on my blog.

    I am no soothsayer...we were just letting you know what we learned from good old Google after that dang cardinal parked himself outside our sliding glass door for two days! He drove us a bit nuts...we couldn't get in or out without him kicking up a fuss.

    When we saw the meaning of seeing them, we were not happy either. BOL If you prefer, I shall keep my big trap shut from now on.

  21. Ok...don't hang around there...there are ghosts!! I love the cardinal and you should have demanded to be bigger in those pictures!!

  22. Oh your Gazebo is beautifuls!! (well,honestly, your whole town is beautifuls!!)
    Oh, I LOVES ghost stories Sweet William ~ and that is a good one! I wonder if Ghost Adventures will show up and do an investigation?!

  23. Sweet William I love your story, but please be careful if you see that lady. The pictures are beautiful. I love your adventures.
