Day 18 - The Devil's Chair in Missouri

October 18, 2019

The Devil's Chair (or haunted chair) is a common legend but the one specific to Missouri involves what is known as "The Baird Chair" in Kirksville at the Highland Park Cemetery. The legend goes that those who sit in the chair at midnight (or Halloween, or during a full moon) will either be punished or rewarded for bravery. Another suggests a hand will rise from a grave and drag you down into hell. Since all devil's chairs are in cemeteries, it's easy to imagine getting spooked by such a tale. However, in truth, the chairs were most likely placed there as monuments or even just places for mourners to sit.

 

 However, I still dare you to try it on this All Hallow's Eve.....
