  1. Hey Lynn! Funny, I’m familiar with this area. It’s between the airport we always fly into when I go back home to visit my family on the east coast. We drive from Newark, NJ to Allentown, Pennsylvania, and cross over 31 to Clinton, if I’m correct. And my wife’s best friend Erica’s dad has a horse farm around there, and some ghost stories to go with it. We’re going back there next month for our kids’ spring break and I’ll keep my eyes peeled for roadside spirits!

    1. There are some interesting tales linked to the road, though what brings so much interest to this spot and not dozens of similarly isolated, wooded spots, who knows. Strong links to the Klan and the Mob, so maybe the Mafia have invented stories about it, tried to discourage people from finding where the bodies are buried


      1. That’s a good theory. Funny: I tried to explain “the mob”/ mafia to my kids over dinner last night. That’s an interesting exercise. “Organized crime.” And old-world brutality, fear and intimidation, normalized as part of a culture.

      2. Yes, the term ‘organised crime’ almost adds a legitimacy absent in the more rough and ready, disorganised criminal’s activities! Crime, but with spreadsheets and synched diaries.
