Location: Evergreen, Alabama, USA
Built: Unknown
Type: Interstate
Status: Open

History:

Interstate 65 was built over sacred Creek Native American burial grounds, and the hills surrounding Evergreen are still spiritual homes for the nation. The land was so loved by the Creek nation that during the 1830s when they were being relocated, they said good-bye to each tree and hill.

Of the 15,000 Creeks that had to march to a reservation in Oklahoma, over 3,500 died on the journey. Between 1984 and 1990, a total of 519 accidents, 208 injuries, and 23 deaths had occurred on Interstate 65. The forty-mile stretch of highway’s accident average soars above most, and is believed to be at the phantom hands of the Creek tribe ghosts.
