White Lady of The Buckhorn Mountain, by Joe Servello

I grew up in the Pennsylvania Allegheny Mountains and I have heard many legends. I have also experienced hauntings first hand.

The one thing I have learned is; Ghosts are like bees, if you don't get too excited and swat at them, they usually will leave you alone, usually.

Here is one of the beautiful oil painting of the White Lady of Whopsy by artist, Joe Servello. He's by far my favorite Pennsylvania artist. He has an art studio in downtown Altoona. He's famous for creating memories in art of many landscapes and building that no longer exist in Central Pennsylvania. He's also illustrated and wrote childrens literature.
