Zombie Road - Lawler Ford Road

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Zombie Road - Lawler Ford Road

This road goes through two miles of woods, and comes to a dead end at what used to be a rock quarry. The reported ghosts said to roam here include are a man hit and killed by a train, a child who fell to his death from the nearby bluffs, Satan worshipers, a crazy old lady who yells at you from her house at the end of the road, and plenty of Native American spirits roaming the woods. Another eerie story about this location is how it got its nickname “Zombie Road.” The name came from a mysterious murderer known only as “The Zombie.” He would hide out in his shack as he waited for party goers and lovers to arrive there, and then would attack them. Many believe The Zombie still roams Lawler Ford Road, as reports of people vanishing mysteriously around the road aren’t uncommon.
