Once upon a time, a wild, man-like creature roamed the remote, wooded hills around Douglas County. He was infrequently seen, but his presence felt as far back as the 1860s.
Looking to chase and kill, he carried a wooden club in his huge hand, threw large boulders and feasted upon livestock. Periodic appearances sent locals spinning into a tizzy and brave men searching the woods — and enough excitement to last until the next sighting.
He was the Blue Man of Spring Creek.
“It is a genuine Ozark legend, and if the testimony of scores of men during all these years is to be accepted, the legend is absolutely true,” reported the Springfield Leader in 1924.
