|THE ALLEGED HAUNTED STREET OF WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY
|Westchester County's alleged haunted street Buckout Road
|Murders, war battles, slave trade, executions, arson, suicides, grave robbing, and ghost
sightings. Those are just some of the factual events which occurred on New York State's
alleged most haunted street Buckout Road. It has been the source of spooky urban legends
for decades ranging from the curse of three witches to cannibal albinos. The woodsy back road
that connects the eastern part of White Plains NY to the western part of neighboring Harrison
within Westchester County has been the center of myth, lore, and nightmares for generations.
Named after the Buckhout family, Buckout Road is not a Halloween attraction, it is a legit street
with an eerie history dating back to the Siwanoy tribe in the 1600's. Multi million dollar
mansions currently sit on the road, just a mere half hour north of Manhattan, on a site where
Revolutionary War guns fired, Native Americans were slain, and Quakers illegally helped free
slaves. The area was visited for decades by the infamous Leatherman and home to various
luminaries including actor John Barrymore and pro wrestling pioneer William Muldoon.
|After 20 years of exploring the
area, conducting research,
interviewing local residents,
historians, and descendants of the
Buckhout family, and being
interviewed by numerous
publications, I wrote a book.
My non fiction book Buckout Road
is available for $9.14.

|"I know who found the farmer dead, laid out
in a cross shape in front of the front porch,
eyes open, gone. I used to feel something
looking at me from the window that was on
the third floor of the house, facing west,
which I could see from my bathroom
window, a dark hole of terror, I went in the
house, cluttered with junk and went into the
Buckhout mansion at 13, scared, Love Lane,
the slaughter houses, the church that was
trashed, saw a car off the road once, and the
best is probably when I was maybe 13 or 14,
walking past the small graveyard, jumped up
on the wall, and saw in horror (at 14) the
empty freshly dug pit that contained Mary
Foster's coffin, stolen, with two shovels left
behind. She had a stone up there, and they
were all knocked over" - Rick
