"The "tomb" of the town's founder, Colonel Jonathan Buck, features a mysterious stain -- the image of a woman's stocking-clad foot, or maybe a boot. The leg stain on the memorial, according to legend, came about when Colonel Buck burned a witch and her leg rolled out of the bonfire. His heirs tried to clean the foot off the stone and are said to have replaced the monument twice -- but the foot... keeps... coming... back!

The curse was called down upon the Colonel by the deformed son of the witch. "Your Tomb shall bear the mark of a witch's foot for all eternity!" Or something like that. Not the most horrifying of curses, when you think about it."
