There’s road on a hill in Mexico, Missouri. Accidents happen there remarkably often. Sometimes, they’re fatal accidents.
Various ghost stories are told about why horses become spooked there, but one stands out. It involves a ghost that resides in a nearby cave. An investigation proved fruitless, though, leaving the town to wonder: what causes all of those accidents on Haunted Hill?
Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can also hear me read the articles on The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts — or listen to previously released recordings here.
