Many people have had experiences with Ghost roaming highways and byways, whether that be as simple as a persons ghost hitchhiking like Resurrection Mary, or hitting a person with their car and having them disappear into thin air, there's nothing there and sometimes the actual visual apparition of the all ready dead person. Route 66, Archer Avenue, Grunch Road, A75 Kinmount Straight, Quapaw Road just to name a few.

Some say what's worse then haunting house... haunting a lonely stretch of highway through out eternity?

Road side shrines to those that have died in car accidents are see all around the world but what about the many unreported apparitions that roam them ... And a few monsters too! Suburban street ghost sightings are becoming more commonplace.

Some paranormal investigators have related different scenarios to why our highways and streets and back roads are filled with ghosts. Some believe it is that of the ghosts that have died on these paved streets. Still others think it is a spirit of someone who has decided to travel cross country to see other relatives or just seeing the world as something they could not do in life.

Imagine being killed on a highway why would you be doomed to roam the spot where you died... do you think these ghosts are still trying to get to where they were going? Haunted crossroads and highways are nothing new. Centuries of these types of haunting's go all the way back to ancient times. Some believe streets and lonely roads leading to cemeteries or the most haunted. This belief also kindles the old tales of meeting the devil at the crossroads to sell your soul.

Ghost Lights In The Road

Ghost lights happen on deserted roads quite often. And today the "ghost lights" are becoming a top tourist attraction world wide. A real ghost light is any one of many unusual visual phenomena that appear in specific areas around the world. This describes the appearance of lights where one presumes there should be none. There is no single explanation for what causes ghost lights, but possible causes are mirages, refracted light from automobile headlights, swamp gas, ball lightning, St. Elmo's fire, Will o' the wisp or the piezoelectric effect from underground quartz crystals. But what if they are spirits of the dead?

The will o' the wisp or ignis fatuus, or in plural form as ignes fatui ("fool's fire(s)") refers to the ghostly lights sometimes seen at night or twilight that hover over damp ground in still air — often over bogs. It looks like a flickering lamp, and is sometimes said to recede if approached. Much folklore surrounds the legend, but science has offered several potential explanations.


Ghost lights," often appear actually as one bright light, often dimming and then bouncing back over roads streets and mountains as a great blaze of light. Many ghost light web pages carry the claim that the Army Corps of Engineers were not able to explain the lights. The original 1946 report by the Army Corps of Engineers:
From an article titled:"Solving The Mystery Of The Tri-State Spook Light" in The Kansas City Star of Sunday, May 19, 1946, on pages C1 and C2 by Charles W. Graham (a member of The Star's Staff) it states that under the command of Maj. Thomoas E Sheard of Camp Crowder, they contacted Richard Y. Jones, chief of the civil engineering dept., who with his friend Joe Duck had already determined the cause of the lights but had never officially reported their findings, and began an investigation. Using car lights and synchronized watches on a scheduled system on the Quapaw road, they were able to reproduce virtually all of the observed phenomena commonly reported as the ghost light.

Bones glow in dark due to oxidation of white phosphorous. That's why it is called Ghost Light. The phenomenon is called chemiluminiscence.

Examples of this phenomena can be found around the world:

Min Min lights
Paasselkä devil
Hessdalen light
Baie Chaleur Fireship
St. Louis Light
Martebo lights
Mekong lights (Nekha lights)
United States
Crossett Light
Gurdon Light
North Carolina
Brown Mountain Lights
Maco light
Surrency Spooklight
Moody's Light
Michigan Upper Peninsula
The Paulding Light
Hornet ghost light
Ozark Spooklight
Spooklight (same as Hornet ghost light, at the Oklahoma-Missouri line)
Bragg Road ghost light ( Light of Saratoga )
Marfa lights
Skinwalker Ranch
Cohoke light

They appear in many colors, shapes, and sizes, though the basketball-sized globular orange variety seems most common. Most sightings occur at night, when some lights can be seen from miles around. They're reported to be able to move against the wind and reach extraordinary speeds. Their terrestrial nature means that though many sightings are sporadic, there are some locations where they appear relatively often. It's through studying these hotspots, such as Hessdalen in Norway and the Engligh Pennines, that their characteristics become evident.

Corpse Fire – this name comes from lights appearing specifically within graveyards where it was believed the lights were an omen of death or coming tragedy and would mark the route of a future funeral, from the victim's house to the graveyard.

Haunted Highways

The story is told that a man named Hal, a welder who had worked for several long hard years at Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Haunts a lonely stretch of Haunted Mississippi Highway. Many still see him and several Gulf Coast Paranormal groups investigate the sightings to this day.

Tuen Mun Road, Hong Kong - Over the years, hundreds of people have claimed that this highway is haunted. Since 1978, many lives have been lost due to car accidents on that expressway. The high death toll is blamed on ghosts because they supposedly pop up in the middle of the road when people are driving, thus causing them to make really sharp turns to avoid them and then end up crashing. The ghosts of past victims are said to be seen there at night and some drivers have even claimed that they lost complete control of their vehicle several times.

Civil War ghost stories, A long and windy road near the Pike Creek area that many have sighted eyes, herd screams at night, had things run in front of their cars, seen things chasing their cars, accidents are a near miss on this dark and creepy road. The trees that line it seem to fallow you and bend down towards your passing car, the woods seem to move with you instead of being passed, keep your eyes open and your foot on the break while driving this haunted road. There is also somewhere on this road a tree said to have had an abandoned baby placed in it to die, sometimes if brave passersby stop they can hear the tree "crying" the distinct sound of an infant crying in the darkness surrounds visitors.



Many locals know the best place to experience a one-on-one encounter with some of the resident ghosts and ghouls that prowl the streets of Haunted New Orleans. Haunted New Orleans Tours has created a definitive guide to some of the city’s spookiest and most ghost-ridden thoroughfares where specters make contact with the living on an almost daily basis. The following locations are those most frequently reported to Haunted New Orleans Tours:

#1. Canal Street at City Park Avenue.

One drive through this major city intersection and it’s obvious to see why the area ranks number one on our list of Haunted New Orleans Streets. This major intersection once marked the outermost limits of the old city of New Orleans and is a location where an amazing thirteen cemeteries converge. Beyond the intersection is the median (in New Orleans vernacular, the “neutral ground”) that once was the location of the New Basin Canal: in itself yet another graveyard for so many Irish, German and Italian immigrants died in digging it and all of them were buried where they fell.

There have been a variety of reports stemming from encounters near vortex of the dead: from spirits seen walking hand in hand down the wide avenues of Greenwood Cemetery, to the plaintive, disembodied voices that call to bus riders waiting at the corner near Odd Fellow’s Rest, the reports are astonishing. Near this location several witnesses have spotted the ghost of a young woman dressed all in white running into the path of oncoming traffic at the corner where Canal Boulevard becomes Canal Street. Some have speculated that the figure is that of a bride and they point to the fact that one of New Orleans’ legendary reception and dining halls – Lenfant’s -- stood nearby for decades. Why the bride is running or what she might be searching for will forever remain a mystery. Others who have seen her have debunked the bride theory for something more sinister: they have said she has all the appearance of a pale, ghostlike creature, with a gaunt, skeletal face and long, bony hands that make a horrible “clack-clacking” noise on the car doors of the hapless souls who wait too long at the Canal Boulevard stop sign. There have been other reports of ghostly funerals passing through the CLOSED gates of the Masonic cemetery late in the night, and this is one of the intersections where the infamous Haunted Bus is said to stop, and barrel on into the empty night. If you happen by this particular intersection remember: here the dead truly outnumber the living, and they are not restful.

#2. Esplanade Avenue at Moss Street and Bayou St. John.

This intersection, where grand old Esplanade Avenue crosses over Bayou St. John at the Moss Street Bridge has long been reputedly haunted. Along the Avenue near this intersection is St. Louis Cemetery No. 3 where many of the great old New Orleans families now sleep in eternal repose. But some of the families who chose a better view of the Bayou with their earthen beds surely must have felt betrayed when their remains were exhumed and moved: Originally, St. Louis No. 3 extended nearly all the way to the shore of the Bayou. In the 1940’s a part of the land was sold and houses were built where gravestones once stood; later, in the 1970’s, the huge Park Place apartment building was erected where the houses once stood. Reports have come of spectral beings loitering near corner of Esplanade and Moss, as if they are lost souls looking for their resting place. Also near this intersection is the old convent of the Cabrini nuns, who still teach at Cabrini High School on nearby Moss Street. Mother Cabrini, the founder of the order, lived in the building herself and tales of her spirit still being seen kneeling and praying at the grotto are legendary. In the early 1900’s Bayou St. John and the surrounding area were the domain of Jose Planas, the King of the French Market. He owned most of the land from Esplanade to the French Quarter and operated several barges and tugs that did commerce along the Bayou, once a major route to Lake Pontchartrain and ultimately to the Gulf of Mexico. Residents who live in the restored cottages near this major intersection tell stories of hearing the resonant voice of Jose himself, still giving orders to his barge crews; when Jose is seen, he appears as a man dressed in a white, Havana style suit, usually near the base of the statue of Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard.

#3. St. Charles Avenue.

This grand promenade of old New Orleans has its share of reputed apparitions and haunting's.

Union soldiers and once even the ghost of General Benjamin “The Beast” Butler have been sighted on the steps of famous Gallier Hall. During the Union occupation of the city of New Orleans, Gallier Hall was used as a Federal headquarters. There is also a ghost connected to Gallier Hall that appears only during the Bacchus Mardi Gras parade: Some rattled parade-goers have run screaming to police reporting that they have just witnessed a stabbing. When police return to the scene of the alleged crime, the first block on the Lafayette St. side of Gallier Hall, there is no victim and nothing out of the ordinary is found. As it happens, in 1972, a young man was attacked and brutally stabbed between two cars on this side of Gallier Hall. He died two blocks down at the intersection of Lafayette and Baronne Streets. Perhaps what we are seeing is simply the ghostly reenactment of his tragic last minutes on earth?

On the Uptown side of St. Charles Avenue, in the area that inspired the chronicles of Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches, strange things are reported near the famous Bultmann Funeral Home where some have witnessed ghostly hearses idling on side streets and have heard the piercing cry of a young woman in jeopardy. Ironically, some years ago, a young woman was attacked near the funeral home entrance and was dragged to her death along a side street, all during the height of rush hour traffic.

Near the intersection of St. Charles and Napoleon Avenues a ghostly couple is said to await a bus that for them never comes. They are seen dressed in Sunday best and when the bus arrives, they apparently never get on. Also near this intersection is sometimes seen the ghost of a lost little boy. He is seen crying broken-heartedly and standing in the gutter on the river side of Napoleon. When someone approaches him, it is said he turns and runs away, disappearing into thin air. Tragically, a little boy was pulled under the wheels of a Mardi Gras float at just this location many years ago when the Super Krewe's (as they were then called) first began using the Uptown parade route. Could this spectral image be that of the lost little boy whose Mardi Gras was ruined so long ago?

#4. Lakeshore Drive

Like St. Charles Avenue, this long stretch of famous New Orleans roadway seems to have more than its share of haunting's, such as: Lakeshore Drive and Kildeer where a biker and his child were killed in a hit and run trying to cross at the base of the high rise bridge here; many people have reported being startled by the ghostly figure of a man on his bike, with a child fixed in a seat behind him, who rushes out in front of vehicles and disappears into thin air. Lakeshore Drive at “TI- KI Beach,” where the ghost of a college student who drowned during a fraternity initiation is seen walking up to cars that park here and looking mournfully into the windows before vaporizing into the dark. Lakeshore Drive at Mardi Gras Fountain, where the ghost of a motorcyclist who plowed off the road here and into the fountain in the 1960’s is said to come and sit beside hapless visitors to the old fountain; they report that he is still wearing the torn leather jacket and the blood stained helmet that he was found in. And somewhere along Lakeshore Drive is to be found one of the most troubling haunting's in New Orleans, though the exact location is unknown. It is told that during the 1930’s a man who was swimming in the Lake was sucked under the seawall steps and drowned because he could not escape. Friends searched for him and finally a diver located the opening under the steps and the body was discovered. Haunted New Orleans Tours has received several reports from people who have unintentionally chosen the exact spot of this tragedy to share a quiet moment, only to be startled into abject terror as the ghostly arm and shoulder of a man appear in the wash near the bottom of the steps: According to all reports, NO ONE has stayed around to see the head and face come up out of the water. (This one is hit or miss and you never know if the spot you’ve chosen is the right one, until you see that glowing hand reach up from the black waters of Lake Pontchartrain.)

#5. Rampart and Basin Streets.

You can’t have one without the other in this “two’fer.” Rampart Street was for years uncounted the northern boundary of the French Quarter and has been the source of many reports of haunting's and paranormal encounters. Basin Street, Rampart’s raunchy sister, is a legendary cradle of brothels and the blues, and a perfect recipe for haunting's.

The Old Mortuary Chapel, or Our Lady of Guadeloupe and St. Jude Shrine as it is called today, was once the final stop before an earthen bed for victims of the yellow fever epidemics of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The dead and dying of Bronze John’s subjects were taken en masse to this chapel to receive the Last Rites from the only souls still willing to approach the victims with compassion, the priests and nuns of the Mortuary Chapel. Today there is almost continuous activity in and around the church and novenas to St. Jude, the Patron Saint of Impossible Causes, are a constant. But in the quiet interludes, in the dark hours before dawn and at sunset after the rush hour traffic has passed, some say the sound of Latin benedictions can still be heard over the ghostly moaning of the dying in the last throes of the grip of the yellow death. One startling report comes to Haunted New Orleans Tours of a group visiting from South Carolina who decided to take an independent tour of the old chapel and somehow got a glimpse of the Other Side: while wandering the aisles of the church, amid the muffled conversation of churchgoers and other tourists, the group came face to face with a nun wearing a habit so antiquated that it immediately stood out as odd. It is said that she passed them without a look or word, and in such complete silence that it made at least one of the party give her a second, longer look. To his dismay, he realized as he watched that the nun was FLOATING almost a foot above the chapel floor. Struck speechless by the sight, all he could do was watch in shock as the nun literally floated onto the altar and through the sacristy door. Often visitors to the church smell an intense scent of lavender in the nave of the church when no one is there: lavender was used to mask the scent of illness that once so pervaded the little old chapel.

Another famous and haunted Rampart Street landmark is Congo Square. Today it is adjacent to Armstrong Park near the Municipal Auditorium, but in the 18th and 19th centuries it was the beating heart of the African Americans in New Orleans. Frequented by both Free People of color and Negro servants and slaves of the gentile New Orleans families, Congo Square quickly took on a life of its own. African Americans who came together to share and celebrate their African culture in a marketplace atmosphere that in the evenings became a celebration of music and dance held great gatherings there. Many distinguished New Orleanians would join in the celebrations at Congo Square, including Marie Laveau and her followers who practiced their voodoo rituals there deep into the night. The wild rhythms also attracted one of the most famous American composers of that time: young Louis Moreau Gottschalk, the composer of such famous works as “A Night in the Tropics” and “The Banjo,” visited Congo Square as a child and into his youth – and some say he still visits there in death. Reports have come to Haunted New Orleans Tours of a tall man, dressed in 19th century clothing, groomed in the style of the day with sideburns and moustache, who walks silently down Rampart Street to the gates of Armstrong Park and disappears inside. One report tells of the man being accompanied by an Octoroon woman dressed in servant’s clothes of the time: it is a well known fact that the servants of Gottschalk’s household are the ones who first exposed him to the fiery rhythms that would plant the seed of ragtime in his musician’s heart. Perhaps his Octoroon is still accompanying him? Those who have researched the story of Gottschalk have recognized his tall, dark figure immediately, but he is not confined to Rampart Street and is often seen near the corner of Royal and Esplanade standing outside the cottage where he was born. The ghost of Marie Laveau has also been seen in the park itself, dancing in a ghostly dance to music only she and the spirits of the Other World now can hear. Dressed in white and looking as beautiful as when she lived, her dark eyes flash as if she knows very well she is dead and that she is scaring the life out of you!

Nearby Basin Street has always had a seedy reputation and the brothels that flourished there in the late 1800’s and early 20th century did nothing to change that opinion. But can it be that the ghosts of prostitutes from long ago are still working their Basin Street beat? One man claims that he was actually approached by one of these ghostly prostitutes and was led to a rendezvous in a darkened yard, only to find himself completely alone: the woman had vanished altogether. Ghostly music haunts Basin Street; remnant notes from days of yore when jazz and the blues were in their infancy. One complaint to the New Orleans Police Department about “the jazz band practicing upstairs in that empty building” seem to be proof enough that ghostly musicians still get together to jam: when the NOPD arrived, they found the place deserted, without even electricity or a way inside. One familiar Basin Street ghost is that of famous turn of the century craftsman and painter Alphonse Aveton, who is still seen in his turn of the century painter’s clothes, walking down Basin or climbing scaffolding that IS NOT THERE along the sides of buildings now decrepit and abandoned but which once bore the mark of his artistry. Family members of Aveton claim to have no idea why their relative is still plying his trade in the hereafter but wish wholeheartedly that he’d come over to their houses and do some work for them! Such is the way with most old New Orleans families: you may be gone but you are never forgotten!

The Legend of New Orleans Grunch Road Revealed

Some people claim it was in Chalmette, Louisiana, some other people claim it was in Gentilly, but the REAL Grunch Road was located in a remote part of Eastern New Orleans near the community of Little Woods.

In those days, when New Orleans was still developing it's Eastern subdivisions, most people only encountered Grunch Road by accident. A dead end of scant shells and sand, sheltered by overgrown woods and water oaks it led off into the ferny darkness off the major two-lane highway of Haynes Boulevard.


So the next time you feel like a nice, relaxing drive, or you’re out “cruising” with your friends or significant other, be sure to take this handy list along and keep your eyes peeled when your path crosses one of the Haunted Streets of New Orleans!!

Resurrection Mary

Resurrection Mary is a famous ghost story and is considered by many to be the original hitchhiker ghost story. It takes place around the Chicago area in Justice, Illinois. Many travelers down Archer Avenue -- a street which runs through the city of Chicago -- and its South Suburbs, have reported seeing a young blonde girl walking by, some who have seen her have claimed to even have given her a ride. The girl is said to be very quiet once picked up and disappears once the driver passes the gates of Resurrection Cemetery in Justice Illinois.


This stretch of Archer Avenue is part of Resurrection Mary's territory. Mary, the hitchhiking ghost, is picked up by drivers and disappears as they drive past Resurrection Cemetery.

Artist: Dickey Lee Lyrics
Song: Laurie (Strange Things Happen) Lyrics

Last night at the dance I met Laurie,
So lovely and warm, an angel of a girl.
Last night I fell in love with Laurie -
Strange things happen in this world.

As I walked her home,
She said it was her birthday.
I pulled her close and said
"Will I see you anymore?"
Then suddenly she asked for my sweater
And said that she was very, very cold.

I kissed her goodnight
At her door and started home,
Then thought about my sweater
And went right back instead.
I knocked at her door and a man appeared.
I told why I'd come, then he said:

"You're wrong, son.
You weren't with my daughter.
How can you be so cruel
To come to me this way?
My Laurie left this world on her birthday -
She died a year ago today."

A strange force drew me to the graveyard.
I stood in the dark,
I saw the shadows wave,
And then I looked and saw my sweater
Lyin' there upon her grave.

Strange things happen in this world.


A75 Kinmount Straight

Hauntings on the A75 Kinmount Straight in South West Scotland have led to it being called 'the Ghost Road.' Here is a brief list of some of the more famous sightings along this route.

Derek and Norman Ferguson were driving along the A75 near Kinmount, around midnight, when a large hen flew towards their window screen, but vanished on the point of impact. The hen was followed by an old lady who ran towards the car waving her outstretched arms. She was followed by a screaming man with long hair and further animals, including 'great cats, wild dogs, goats, more hens and other fowl, and stranger creatures', who all disappeared. The temperature then dropped, and when the brothers stopped the car, it began to sway violently back and forth. Derek got out of the car and the movement stopped. He climbed back in and then, finally, a vision of a furniture van came towards them before disappearing.

Donna Maxwell, 27, was convinced she had hit a man in the road whilst driving along the A75 near Swordwellrig with her two children. Travelling at 50 mph she saw the man jump out in front of her, about two feet in front of her car. He was in his 30's, with short hair, wearing a red top and dark trousers. She braked hard, involuntarily closing her eyes and bracing for impact. When she opened her eyes, the car had stopped but there was no sign of the man. She contacted the police and the area was searched but there was no evidence of an accident. A description of the accident issued to the media a week later failed to provide any further explanation of the accident.


Primrose Road, South Bend, Indiana

The tale of Primrose Road is a strange and intriguing one. It is apparent that the true origin of this urban legend, and that these stories have masked any factual information concerning real events or encounters. Be that as it may, let's take a look at some of the things that are said to occur on Primrose Road.

One of the strangest parts of the legend states that if you drive down Primrose Road at less than twenty miles an hour your tires will be slashed. It is said that if you travel over thirty miles an hour, your vehicle will simply die. In either case, you will have to walk to get help. Cell phones are said to be useless as you will be unable to get any signal whatsoever. It is stated that while you are walking you will hear unearthly sounds and that a ghost will appear telling you to go back to your car because there is danger ahead. Another part of the legend states that while you are walking down Primrose Road a phantom farmhouse will appear, but that it won’t appear long enough for you to investigate. It is also rumored that occult rituals have been performed in the area, and that during one of these rituals a woman was sacrificed and her body was deposited in a nearby lake. Witnesses claim to have seen the ghost of the woman reliving the ritual on the anniversary of the night she was sacrificed. It is also reported that near the lake where her body was left that an overpowering sense of sadness can be felt.



Rosedale, Mississippi, where Highway 8 intersects with Highway 1. Robert Johnson and his infamous crossroads deal with the devil – in which he traded his immortal soul for musical genius – is deeply ingrained in the mythology and legend of the rural South and is one of the best-known tales of American folklore.

If’n yo wants to make a deal with de deb’l yo gotta take yo guitar and a black cat bone and go on out to a lonely, empty fork in de roads long about midnight. Yo’s got to sit down dere and play dat guitar with dat black cat bone, playing yo best song, yo know, and wishing on the deb’l all the while. After a short time yo goin’ hear somethin’ hummin’, deep and low like a bumble bee only getting’ louder all de time. Den yo’s gonna feel somethin’ come up behinds yo tugging at yo guitar wantin’ to takes it away – and dis goin’ be the old Deb’l himself. But dontcha looks round, boy! Yo gots to keep on strummin’ as if’n yo still hads de guitar in yo hands. Right soon, dat deb’l he gonna give that old guitar back to yo and yo’s goin’ be able to play anything yo heart desire on dem old strings! Yes, you is gonna play dat guitar until yo fingers bleed, boy, but only as long as the deb’l will let yo – coz one day he comin’ back with his own guitar and yo is gonna haves to accompany him if’n yo wants to or not!”
