Skull Cave – Mackinac Island, MI

The Skull Cave can be found at Mackinac Island. It was first discovered by a fur traded named Alexander Henry way back 1763. When he took refuge in the cave one evening, he thought that he was just lying on rock. But after waking up the next morning, he was surprised and shocked to see that he was directly lying above a heap of human bones and skulls which covered the cave’s floor. Today, although the skulls and bones are gone, it still drives in tourist and visitors who wanted to feel and see its spooky ambiance.

    Jails are always disturbing. Jackson is a prison town. I worked in a school there, and a lot of the kids had a parent in prison so they’re other parent moved them closer to visit. Only time I ever heard of such a thing.
