Local Legend says there is a hitchhiking ghost on Reeder Road and she goes by the name of Elizabeth Wilson. Elizabeth supposedly drowned in a swamp when her car went off the road and her ghost has been seen waiting at the roadside for a ride to her old house. But once she's inside the car, she disappears at Ross Cemetery, where she was buried in 1955. Other local stories say the spot was a popular place to dump Mafia kills in the 1930s and was also a popular suicide location in the 1980s and 1990s. People say the area is haunted by voices, strange lights and apparitions.

  • Strange sounds and fog seeping in…

    Me and two of my friends went to reeder road where we seen a car behind us disappeared disappeared by how foggy it had became when we arrived. We instantly decided to park up and step out. First think I noticed it was dead quite but I felt like something was right in front of me. Then I heard something walking towards me in the distance but I couldn’t see what it was and it kept getting closer and closer. Great experience. Super creepy.

    I just the scariest experience of my life. I went on this road with one of my best buds Isaac. We unlocked all the doors and rolled down the windows and called Elizabeth’s name. All the sudden she climbs out of the swamp and pull me out of the car. Swamp water is dripped all over me. My bud Isaac jumps out of the car and pulls her off of me. We run back to the car and skirt out of there. I would not recommend this for the faint of heart (men).

  • Ghosts are real

    I lived on North Dwiggins and me and my sisters use to go to Reder Road to get a good scare. Heard many voices and Whispers. Heard plenty of phantom footsteps all around us.

  • Way back in the day

    Went with a few friends on Halloween night back when we were in highschool. We all saw the person hanging in the tree, lots of orbs, screeching and moaning.

  • Don't go if you're a female

    I went with friends for the 1st and last time tonight. I normally will go into any place that's haunted. Redder rd.... never again. I got pushed in the back, hard hooves on the path and no animals were around us, caught a figure with my camera pestering to one of my friends, and heard a voice saying leave. The fields on the other hand felt like something was calling me to go there and seen a dark figure follow us. So ummm noooo.

  • She is not buried there

    My grandparents were caretakers of this cemetery for many years and are now buried there themselves. I researched due to so many disrespectful people destroying the cemetery and treating it like a fun house.

  • BULLSH!T..

    I'm a 50 year old lifelong resident of Griffith. I have been in and through there many many times during the night in my life, and nothing unusual or weird ever happened. It's basically a road through a swampy area, so you're going to have mist and cold patches. It definitely was somewhat of a hotspot for dumping bodies throughout the years up until they closed it down, but I've never seen any orbs or anything else that others have claimed to see. And as far as the Elisabeth Wilson story, there is no grave marker in Ross Cemetery that bears that name on it...

  • stay out!

    i went years ago with some friend and my boyfriend at the time. two of my friends chickened out and stayed in the car. there was a lot of spooky stuff that happened at first but nothing that i couldnt explain or blame on y imagination. but the one thing that to this day icant explain is the massive 7 foot tall figure floating a good 6inches off the ground that appeared in front of us. we all saw it at the same time. we literally all stopped at the same time, looked at each other, than ran the other direction. the scariest thing is that this thing was chasing after us!! and it was catching us fast. im getting chills now just thinking about it! it followed us all the way back to the griffith side of the entrance. it was definatley thrilling but i must say ill never go back. scariest thing ive ever gone through.

  • Great experience.

    I went with my girlfriend at the time and a group of friends around Halloween 2006. We walked the entire trail, which what it is right now, just a trail. The actual road is closed now. We took a bunch of pictures and saw thick mist and orbs. In one of the pictures, it appeared as a figure hanging from a tree. I remember the girl that was developing our film at Walgreens actually called me to ask where I had taken these pictures from? When I told her Reeder Rd, she told me I was brave. I remember hitting "cold" spots while walking down the closed off Rd. It felt very eerie and just felt like we weren't the only ones there. I didn't see anything with my own eyes but the pictures we captured were proof enough that we were definitely on some paranormal level. On another occasion I went there and took pictures but no thick mist like the first time. However, I did hear screams like some girl was being murdered (possibly tortured). I know I heard them because others in my group heard them as well and you can hear dogs barking like crazy in the distance. We ran towards the screams because my first reaction was to help this person but we could never pinpoint exactly where the screams were coming from.
