  1. This location is also known as Dead Mans Curve because of the amount of accidents that happen due to speeding. It is an extremely sharp turn and extremely dangerous.

  2. The old manse at this location is also known as a “haunted house”. Built in the early 1800s, it was used as a hospital during the Civil War, and the site of several skirmishes where at least half a dozen soldiers were killed. The home has a long and storied past.

  3. I have information of a relative killed at Dead Man’s Curve in 1912. He was hit by a train. It is said in his death notice in the paper that he was the 4th man killed at the location in the last 10 days.
