This highway is said to be haunted by two headless ghosts.  One is a construction worker who was working to build the highway.  He was robbed and murdered by a fellow laborer, and his decapitated body was buried under the road. His ghost is still seen by motorists traveling the highway on a stretch of the road called Deep Cut, which lies between Cambridge and Old Washington. 

 The other spirit is a woman who lived in a cabin near the old trail in the late 1890s.  She was beheaded by her husband during a violent argument.  Soon after, her headless apparition was seen riding sidesaddle on a white horse.  She has come to be known as Lady Bend.  Lady Bend is seen on the highway at Lady Bend Hill on the third bend from the top.

highway 365 Several versions of the Vanishing Hitchhiker legend originate on the highways between Little Rock and surrounding communities. Someone picks up a young girl hitchhiking, usually on a rainy night, and when the driver gets to the house where the girl wants to get out she disappears.  The astounded driver knocks on the door of the residence only to be told that the ghost of the owner’s daughter returns on the anniversary of her death. The girl died in a car wreck at the spot where the driver picked her up. The haunted area on Highway 365 is from Little Rock to Woodson, and from Redfield to Pine Bluff.

 

 

Haunted Highway 11? – Decatur, AL

**The ghost of a young man flagging down a ride is invariably struck by drivers trying to avoid him. Lonnie Stephens was falsely accused of murdering his girlfriend in September 1934, and it was not until many years later that the real killer confessed. But it was too late for Lonnie. The innocent man managed to escape from a chain gang and was attempting to hitch a ride when he was struck and killed by a car. Lonnie’s ghost is still seen standing in the middle of the road pleading for someone to stop, his arms outstretched in and imploring gesture. Lonnie’s ghost is seen on the northbound lanes of Highway 11, and exit off Highway 565 between Decatur and Huntsville.
