Annie's Road: A Haunting in New Jersey
Updated: Mar 8, 2020
A lot of the hauntings we have covered so far are in buildings or cemeteries, but what about a haunted road? There are several notable haunted roadways in the United States, but the one we are focusing on today is in New Jersey. Annie’s Road, of Riverview Drive as it is actually named, is known by locals as a stretch of roadway that is said to be haunted by the ghost of a girl who was killed there years ago.
It is unknown how exactly this girl died, some say it was prom night, others say it was her wedding night, either way it happened, she died on this stretch of road, but her spirit may have never left. Numerous reports have come in over the years about a young woman seen on the side of the late night. Other’s have reported seeing thick fog come out of nowhere, flashes of white, and even screams from no discernible source. Orbs are also a common sight on Annie’s Road late at night.
Legends have also claimed that the ghost of the young woman will appear as solid as the living when a young man drives by alone. When he stops to help and offers a ride, she gets in and then does her best to lure him to crash. This is a common legend that seems to pop up about any haunted highway, but one can never be too careful, just in case.
This is an active road, so it is best to take caution and make sure you have proper permission if out investigating here. It sounds like a really cool place to investigate and I would love to hear if any of you have stories from this spot!
