Saul Outruns the Witch at Rockcastle Creek: Jackson Hill in Wyoming County, West Virginia
Back in the 1870s, Jackson Hill in Wyoming County used to be called Sizemore Gap, and old-timers passed down that it had a ghost that would show up to travelers along the road. Here is the story of one man who came to face with it. Welcome to Sometime Between Dusk and Dawn Ghost Stories. There is more than just this podcast. You can buy my ghost stories and folk tales book series on Amazon and in stores like the Vintage Lady in Harpers Ferry and Point Pleasant Trading Company across from the Mothman Museum. This story is one of the many stories in my third West Virginia ghost story books, West Virginia Ghost Stories: The Classics and is portrayed on the back cover of the book.

The Abandoned: Pennsylvania's Abandoned Turnpike and Sideling Tunnel
The Abandoned: Pennsylvania's Abandoned Turnpike and Sideling Tunnel may not be as deserted as people think. The old turnpike is on many people’s bucket lists to visit, although few have the guts to take this forsaken post-apocalyptic-looking road and follow it through an abandoned tunnel that is 1.3 miles long, pitch-black in some places, and just plain creepy. However, it is not enough that it appears isolated and friendless. There are things of the supernatural, too, that lurk here. Take a ride with me along this abandoned highway and maybe add it to your bucket list. Or come face to face with the supernatural within.  Music: https://uppbeat.io/t/reakt-music/deep-stone

That THING in Egypt Valley That Got Dug Up
Something peculiar lurks in a wild pocket of overgrown scrub meadows mixed with deep, young woodland in Belmont County, Ohio. It is just off Interstate 70, and those who pass along the highway usually sense that there is more to the gutted terrain than meets the eye, more than just the strip mine that flourished greedily on the land. It was as if when peeling back the flesh of the terrain, then gouging out the soul of the land, something wicked was freed from the bowels of the earth. Something long buried. Something that should never return. Something so dreadfully evil, it still walks as if the land beneath its feet is still quite dead. And it still thrives there . . .that thing in Egypt Valley that got dug up. You can find stories like this in my book series on Amazon, this one comes from Ohio Ghost Hunter Guide II: Haunted Hocking - A Ghost Hunter's Guide II to Ohio : 9 Books on haunted Ohio, 3 in West Virginia, and more!  https://uppbeat.io/t/ak/mystic-forests Caldwell, J.

Would You Visit This Park if you Knew it Had Bigfoot?
People have been crossing paths with hairy bipedal creatures for centuries. Mostly described as human-like, over 7 feet, hairy, and foul-smelling. When conversations arise over the big hairy creature’s prime territory in the tri-state area of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, Salt Fork State Park is nearly always brought up. Located in eastern Ohio, the park has a whopping 17,229 acres for Bigfoot to inhabit. The Ohio Bigfoot Conference, led by Marc DeWerth, is held annually at Salt Fork State Park. This year, it is Saturday, April 30, 2022, where you can explore The Ohio Bigfoot Flea Market featuring over 40 vendors from all over the country with all kinds of Bigfoot, Sasquatch, cryptozoology, alien, U.F.O., Mothman, and other creature items. And you will see me with my books, including Monsters, Cryptids, and Mysterious Wild Beasts, and a new book on haunted Appalachian hiking trails.

The Legend of the Bunny-Man
It always seems appropriate to feature some theme-based, folklore-related post for each holiday. Most are easy to come by like redeeming ghosts on Christmas Eve, dead, angry lovers on Valentine’s Day, and Halloween is a no-brainer because it celebrates every kind of ghost story, folktale, and urban legend. However, Easter has always eluded me, and over the years, I have managed to sidestep it completely. This time is different, though, because I discovered a most frightening legend, but with a little twist. Full disclosure—the tale would not have much to do with the Easter holiday if it were not for the mythical mammal involved mostly because it originated in October of 1970—This is The Legend of Bunny-Man of Fairfax County, Virginia.  You can take a ride with me and see it for yourself on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/DNfJmPZoO4g You can find my books on Amazon: https://amazon.com/Jannette-Quackenbush/e/B009RN009M • “Man in Bunny Suit Sought in Fairfax” (October 22, 1970) • “The ‘Rabbit’ Reappears” (October 31, 1970) • “Kooky "Bunny-Man" Keeps Virginia Officers Hopping Beckley Post Herald, The Raleigh Register (Beckley, West Virginia) October 31, 1970 • “Bunny Man Seen” (November 4, 1970) • “Bunny-Man Has Hatchet in Virginia” The_Cumberland News October 31, 1970 • “Bunny Reports Are Multiplying” The Washington Post, Times Herald November 6, 1970 • “Boo!

Lost Golden Children
An old story was once retold perhaps two generations ago by Jeanne deLavigne in her book Ghost Stories of Old New Orleans. I think enough time has passed to retell this eerie legend again –Today’s tale is Lost Golden Children. Even after an aged cemetery is removed for development, a stingy ghost returned to search for something he lost. You can read more ghost stories of New Orleans, get directions to cemeteries, and take a ghostly walking tour of haunted places there in my book,  Ghost Stories and Folk Tales of New Orleans. It’s a must-have if you’re heading out to NOLA or if you just enjoy the ghostly tales surrounding the city. https://www.amazon.com/Ghost-Stories-Folk.../dp/1940087465

So in celebration of those old-time traditions, here is an ageless ghost story I’ll share with you that happened in a tiny community called Fallsville, which is now little more than a ghost town located in the Ohio Division of Wildlife’s Fallsville Wildlife Area.

Tunnel of the Dead - Eaton and Lost Tunnel
The North Bend Rail Trail in West Virginia stretches 72 miles along an old, abandoned railroad with 36 bridge crossings and 13 tunnels along its passageway. It’s a beautiful place to hike and bike . . . mostly. However, it also has some dark and spooky settings on its path. Among its spookier sites are two haunted tunnels secreted along the abandoned stretch of railway between the old oil boom and railroad towns of Walker and Petroleum. You can find the two tunnels, Eaton Tunnel and the hidden Lost Tunnel along the West Virginia Rail-Trail after a short gravel backroads drive, and perhaps run into the ghostly crew of long-dead miners still working. After taking the path from the parking area, you will come upon the Eaton Tunnel. After passing through, look for a rugged path on your left and follow it. The Lost Tunnel is sealed off from the curious. However, you can peer into a small opening and perhaps hear the ghosts of its past within. If you like old ghost stories, legends, and folk tales, or like to discover new abandoned areas to explore, you can check out my book series on Amazon. I have over 20 books with good old-fashioned ghost stories. And for those you can visit, I give the GPS where you, too, can find your adventure.
