Maine, Massachusetts Have 3 of the Most Haunted Roads in America
Creepy roads in the middle of the night can leave you shaken and wondering if you're dreaming, but there are roads which seem to be truly haunted, and here's where they are. You can avoid them, or go out for your own adventure to see what you find.
RVTrader.com has listed the most haunted roads in America, based on reports, and 3 of those roads are within driving distance for New Englanders.
In Maine, if you follow Route 2A in Haynesville, there have been many reports of twin girl sightings. Here's the story according to RVTrader.com.
Twin girls were once hit and killed by a semi on Route 2A. Today, drivers say they’ve seen a pair of young girls wandering down the road, lost and confused. Those who stop to offer them a ride report that shortly after the girls get in, they suddenly leap from the moving vehicle! Drivers frantically slam on their brakes and try to find the girls, but the twins are nowhere to be seen.
Are the hairs on your arms raised? Yeah, I thought so. Here are two more highways, in Massachusetts, which have similar creepy stories and sightings.
On Dudley Road, in Bedford, MA this happened. It's not far from Salem, MA.
In the 1800s, an ancient acolyte of the Salem witches disguised herself as an Abbess until it was discovered that she was leading the local nuns in occult rituals. The witch and her coven fled into a field near present-day Dudley Road, where they were captured and executed. Drivers today say you can still hear their whispered hexes if you drive slowly with the windows cracked.
and then on Essex Street in the well-known haunted city of Salem, MA there's this.
On Essex Street you can find the former home of Judge Jonathan Corwin, who presided over the infamous Salem Witch Trials. Known locally as “The Witch House,” it’s the only remaining historic building with direct ties to the 1692 trials. The house is believed to be an evil place that attracts the ghosts of accused witches who gather on Essex Street to place curses on the descendants of Salem.
So try one, or all three of these ghostly roads, or if your like me, you'll want to avoid these places. However, there's no question these roadways have spooky vibes to keep them rolling along.
