Staley Road is a seemingly secluded roadway located in New Carlisle, Ohio. It winds its way through woods of big trees on either side, and has interwoven branches overhead leading up to an old flour mill built in the early 1800s. Legend says the original owner, Elias Staley went on a rampage and still haunts the area today. Motorists have reported car trouble and seeing Staley’s ghost standing or lying in the road.
The Devil’s Promenade
The Devil’s Promenade located near Hornet, Missouri is a quaint strip of road nestled on the border of Missouri and Kansas. Residents report seeing an unexplainable green orb or “Spooklight,” as it is now called. The reported lights shine thru the long tall trees in the area. Reports of seeing the lights go all the way back to the early 19th century and legend says sightings stem from the spirit of two Native-American lovers who are looking for each other.
