Strasburg Road is known as Knock Knock Road, because many passersby in their vehicles have reported the sounds of constant child’s knocking and rapping on their car doors and windows. The haunting is said to stem from a adolescent girl who was once riding her bike by the road, and was hit and killed. She is said to knock on the doors to get the driver’s attention. Another version of the legend tells of a group of teenagers riding a car down the road and crashed into a pole. The car caught fire and started to burn, while the teenagers, who were trapped inside, desperately pounded on the windows in an attempt to get out while they burned to death.

  1. No. The knocking was not heard on car windows. It was heard underneath your car as you drove past the elementary school on Strasburg street. The story was that a truck driver did and dragged a little down the street as she knock on the bottom of his truck . She was dragged to her death. The driver unaware until it was too late.
    From that day for several years on, anyone driving down that stretch heard her knocking.
    I was about 10 at the time. My dad took me and my cousin down knock knock street to hear the knocking and scare the crap out of us. This was about 1958 .

  2. Yes I remember the stories about knock knock street. Strasburg near Von Steuben school. I attended Von Steuben in the 50’s and graduated 8th grade in 1953.
