Have you ever been driving down a secluded road at night when you become hyper-aware, get a pit in your stomach, and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? Dudley Road will do all that and more.

Dudley Road has become part of local legend, drawing ghost-hunters from all across the country. Legend has it that several nuns from the local convent (the Daughters of St. Paul) were accused of witchcraft in the early 1800’s, hunted down, and hanged from a nearby tree, left to haunt the road for all eternity. Some spirits calmly stand off the road while others, still lost and wandering, hail down drivers to ask for directions to the nearby convent.

It’s said that a nearby house, now sunken into the earth up to its second-story windows, is the fated place where the spells were cast so many centuries ago. Only a few get to hear the voices echoing chants and songs from the desiccated structure. Could you be one of them?
