Across this country of ours, there are a ton of haunted places where weird and unexplained things have happened. But not only buildings and sites can be haunted, so can roads. Here are 13 of the most haunted roads in the country.
1. Clinton Road in New Jersey
This is often called the most haunted road in the city. A building called Cross Castle used to house devil worshippers used to reside on the street, which could be the source of this haunting.
