Today, I want to share a story and a place I recently heard about, known as Ghost Road. It is located in Baltimore County Maryland. We all known Maryland has its share of weird tales, one of which is the Maryland Goatman.
The area known as Ghost Road is a dead end road that ends at Saltpeter Creek lake. For many years this was just a dirt road but it is paved now. There are very few houses in this wooded area. The real name of the road is Keeners Road.
How I came to know about this area was from a new friend name Greg. He told me about an event that happened to him on Ghost Road many years ago.
At this time I want to share his story with you and then offer up some more information.
Here is Greg's story.
"I was about 14 - 15 years old I was hanging out with my friends, Gary and Will to be exact. We were in a band together back then, and we were always hanging out. There is a road in Baltimore County Maryland everyone in the area called Ghost Road, actual name is Keeners road. I just found someone put a short narration of the road on youtube, and surprisingly the pic they used is looking right at the spot this happened. So we always heard ghost stories passed down for some time about this road, one was if you turn your car off at the train tracks you cant start it again. I know dumb idea, but these tracks run into a power plant a ways down the line and are seldom used. So . . . one night we went down Ghost Road to see what we could find, this was about 11:30 to 12 in the night. We passed the tracks at first and drove down the road, turned around and faced the car out leaving the road ( its a dead end ), There was one yellowish street light over top of the railroad tracks where the road intersected. Gary stopped the car on the tracks and turned it off, of coarse he couldn't get it started. We were like quit messing around, but he swore he wasn't messing with us. Finally he got the car started, backed it off the tracks, and we all got out. We were standing there talking in front of the car , smoking a cigarette and asking each other what the heck is wrong with the car? It wasn't a crap car and his dad took very good care of it. And then. . . . In the middle of a sentence we heard a little girls voice like she was standing right next to us say "JUST STOP" we stopped talking in shock and looked at each other puzzled - then she said the same thing again. No sh*t Tom we jumped out of our skin, and we got in that car and tore ass down that road. This is not near houses, at least not that close, there is woods and thats it. No little girl would be out there that late, and as clear as that voice was we would have seen her for sure, I mean it was right next to us.
So years later I looked this Ghost road up online, to see if anyone else had a story. Oh man. . . . . there was a bunch, and a few stories of someone either seeing a little girl near the tracks, or hearing a little girls voice in that spot. Well, when I saw that I got the same cold chills as that night, I know that something must have happened there. I am really upset that all of these years that site was online and people were sharing these stories I cant find it anywhere now!! Really If I would have known that I would have printed the whole thing out, I hope I can find it somehow. Anyway, look up Maryland ghost road in google, and check out the 1 min video someone put up on youtube titled Keeners Road, That is the exact spot this took place in the picture. I don't care who thinks what about the paranormal, I know this is real, even years later I would bump into those guys from that night, and they both said at different times " hey man you remember that night we went down ghost road" And I said both times Ill never forget!!!!!"

As I was researching the history of the area, I of course used Google Maps to check the lay of the land and was able to find, what I think, is the exact spot where Greg had his event, see photo at top of page. I also attempted to find the origins or a cause for the activity. I stumbled across a story, and couldn't find it later, that said something about 2 young girls had been murdered in the isolated area on Keeners Road. I of course could not verify the murders but I did try. I searched some old murder records and other sources but not knowing what year these murders took place made it a very hard task. If the murders did happen, that could explain the reported activity of seeing a little girl and hearing a girl's voice.
There is a slew of activity that has been reported on ghost road. It seems most if it happens around the railroad crossing or after you cross headed towards the dead end. Things reported includes, seeing a ghost girl, car lights starts flashing, car stalls, orbs in the woods, voices, and even a glowing blue tombstone in the woods. One report suggest that people who saw the tombstone were too frightened to go check it out and if they did that it would disappear once you moved toward it.
