The Cora Witch Tree

Legendary oak tree where a suspected witch was supposed to be burned, but disappeared -- and left only her name in the tree.

The letters CORA are barely visible in the bark of the tree; you have to look hard to see them. We should expect better handiwork from our cursed witches. Sept. 2020: Photo added.
