"Mystery Mile" - The Most Democratic Of The Haunted Places In America - 004 Mysteries

A winding road in Pennsylvania is said to be haunted by the ghosts of children and a couple who died in a tragic accident in the 1800s.


It has been dubbed Mystery Mile, and supernatural enthusiasts believe it has all of the hallmarks of a cursed area. The area in Ohioville has a small population, a cemetery at the end of it and a nuclear powerplant nearby.

'They’re the most democratic of the haunted places,' Tom White, archivist and curator of special collections at Duquesne University, told Penn Live.

'You don’t need special permission to be there; you can go to a road as long as you’re not doing anything disruptive or as long as it’s not a private road, which very few of these [legends] ever are.

'You’re allowed to be there, and it’s a place that people can get to easily.'

There are countless stories of involving paranormal interactions on Mystery Mile over the years.

'Over the years, there’s been lots of stories — and they go back very far,' White said.

It has been dubbed Mystery Mile and supernatural enthusiasts believe it has all of the hallmarks of a cursed area.

There are claims that spirits are heard crying, cultists take part in rituals and animals become dangerous once they cross on to Mystery Mile. Kelley road is thought to be the area in question as it has a cemetery at the end whole Wolf Run which sits alongside it is also mentioned.

'In the 1940s, they changed the direction of [Wolf Run], and it [became] a dirt road that forks off,' White added.

'And some people think that originally that was what, back in the ‘40s and early ‘50s, the locals called "Mystery Mile" as a joke — that they started a road and never finished it.'

The first mile of the road is believed to cause animals to act 'strange or unhinged' and 'a little violent or aggressive.' Others insist the area is under a Native American curse or subject to a satanic cult.

White said, 'Some people claim it was a curse that [Natives] placed on the land when they were driven out.

'Regardless of what people believe, they always thought that something strange was happening.'

He added that people have spotted 'creepy ghost children' in the area where there has supposedly been an 'abnormal amount of car accidents'. There is another tale of a couple in the 1800s who were riding down the road when their horse was spooked and the carriage flipped over, killing the woman instantly.

While the man died slowly underneath the wreckage and there are rumors his voice can still be heard calling for help. On Wolf Run Road, a young girl was playing outside when she disappeared on March 21st, 1956 and her body was discovered nearby but her death remains a mystery.

But she is never mentioned in the discussion of Mystery Mile’s various haunting encounters.
