Pendleton Road is haunted by the “Red Lady”. During the 1950s, she was killed in a car accident. The story goes that she had crawled out of her vehicle to find help. Police later found her dead body half a mile away from the crash.
Archer Avenue (also called Archer Road) is located outside of the Chicago, Illinois city limits that runs between Chicago’s Chinatown and Lockport, Illinois. It was named for William Beatty Archer, the first commissioner of the Illinois and Michigan Canal. A map of Chicago from around 1830 listed the road that later became Archer Avenue as “The Road to Widow Brown’s”.
Puttygut Bridge was the site of a fatal accident several years ago. A man was driving his truck drunk drove off the bridge, which was flooded at the time. The man and his truck were never found.
The Wal-Mart located in Muskegon, Michigan has seen two deaths in its time. One involved a man committing suicide via hanging, and the other was a man who accidentally drove into the shipping docks since the thick fog blocked all traffic signals. Now, items are thrown off shelves too far to have simply fallen. Play balls have been bounced up and down as if they were being dribbled by some unseen entity. Odd bells have been reported to ring within the store.
There have been several legends of ghosts that surround Clinton Road. A bridge that passes over Clinton Brook is the spot of a spirit known as “the ghost boy of the bridge”. The boy was believed to have drowned while either swimming or falling into the water after sitting on the bridge’s edge. Now, if you put a quarter on the yellow line in the middle of the road at midnight, he will return your coin to you. Many have even seen his apparition, while others have been pushed into the water by his ghostly hands.
Another ghost is that of a car driven by a teenage girl who died from the impact of a car crash in 1988. The ghosts of two park rangers who died on the job in 1939 have also been spotted. Phantom vehicles have been seen on numerous occasions, such as a ghostly pickup truck that appears out of nowhere, chases drivers to the end of the road, then disappears. Many have witnessed the ghosts of people in old-fashioned clothing who stare at them but say nothing.
Mysterious creatures are even seen along the road, such as hell-hounds and monkeys. It is rumored that these animals might be the survivors of the Jungle Habitat, which was an attraction that closed in 1976.
