The Woodland Beach in Kent County, Delaware was home to a boardwalk and several attractions during the early 1900s. Now, only the boardwalk’s pier remains. However, on a well-lit night (whether by flashlight or moonlight), you can see figures walking over the water where the boardwalk once stood. It appears that they are awaiting a ferry that no longer comes to the beach. Now, the Woodland area is filled with several homes, and the beach is open to the public.
There have been several reports made by the people who live near the Dream Beach about being awoken in the middle of the night by a terrible noise ensued by heavy breathing in front of their faces coming from an unseen entity.
Loon Creek is haunted by the ghost of Manuel Sato. He wanders the deserted hills near the creek, and has been doing so ever since his death in 1870. One morning, while he was making himself some breakfast, a robber mauled him with a knife. The robber then proceeded to rob a bank, and allegedly buried his haul near the site of Sato’s murder. Fort Boise had sent soldiers to recover the stolen money, and came across the ghost of Sato along the way. He was seen directing an invisible pack of mules.

Sometime during the early 1800s, a man named Charles Boyington and his best friend, Nathaniel Frost, spent many of their afternoons together in the Church Street Graveyard located on Bayou Street. It is unknown why the chose this location in particular to spend their time, but the two were always remembered by the place.
Nathaniel Frost was found stabbed to death in the cemetery. Being that the authorities had no other evidence, they assumed that Boyington killed Frost merely based on the location. Boyington pleaded his innocence. However, the police were not convinced and Boyington was sentenced to death.
In February 1835, on the day that Boyington was to be executed, the accused man proclaimed that a mighty oak would rise from his grave as proof that he was innocent. Charles Boyington was then hanged and buried in a portion of the Church Street Graveyard.
As he proclaimed, an oak tree sprouted from his grave, and it still stands to this day. It is known as the Boyington Oak, named after the man. Many claim that when the wind blows through the branches, you can hear the voice of Charles Boyington crying his innocence.
