The Scarecrow

Legend: A person in scarecrow costume that didn’t work at the mill was often seen getting warm at the bonfire outside the mill. There were claims that it was an actual scarecrow from an area within the mill. The reports were mostly ignored until one night the scarecrow in the field burst into flames. The burnt remains of the scarecrow were removed and replaced. The scarecrow has still been sighted by workers and patrons by the fire and in the field. The reports typically mention that the scarecrow can’t be a person, because its eyes are like flames or it is engulfed in fire.
