Have You Experienced One of These Scary Arkansas Urban Legends And Hauntings
This time of year it’s fun to hear scary stories. Did you know there are some creepy ghostly stories in Arkansas? Some great urban legends that will give you a good scare. Oh, and if you dare, can check these out yourself.
I found a couple of great urban legends last year, but it’s worth it to hear about them again. Oh, and I just found out about another one that is close to us too.
According to the website Shadowlands if you throw a rock down the well that is in the center of the cemetery you will hear a baby cry. Of course, you have to be brave enough to get to the well at night in the first place. Legend has it that before it was a cemetery a woman was at the well and her baby fell in. People have also reported of seeing a woman running through the area in search of her baby. Yikes…scared yet?
This one is about lost love and it’s heartbreaking. In Arkadelphia there are two universities (Henderson State University and Ouachita Baptist University) and there is a big rivalry between the schools. According to the legend, back in the 1920s there was a student from Henderson named Josh and he was dating Jane. She was a student at Ouachita. His friends teased him, then threatened to not be his friend because she went to the other school. He finally broke up with her and at the worse time, homecoming. She was so distraught she put on a black dress and veil and jumped off a cliff to her death. Locals say that every year around homecoming you can see her walking across campus looking for the guys that made her boyfriend break up with her.
This story is also known as the Vanishing Hitchhiker and takes place just south of Little Rock on old Highway 365. Just be on the lookout for a young woman in a white dress on a rainy night on the side of the road. Supposedly drivers have stopped for her and she says she’s been in an accident and needs a ride home in the nearby town of Woodson. When they get to the house she disappears. Legend has it that one man actually was brave enough to go to the house and knock. The person that answered said that their daughter died in a car accident years ago. Yikes! Now that is Creepy!
Have you ever experienced one of these before?
