Newkirk, New Mexico
For Newkirk, a ranching and railroad town-turned-service center, the bypass of Route 66 proved to be the town’s obituary. In the 1930s, it had flourished with four service stations, restaurants, De Baca’s Trading Post, and a few cabins. These are the best haunted houses in America.
In Erick Oklahoma, towering buildings that predate legendary Route 66 cast long shadows over one of the most famous highways in the world. With the arrival of Route 66, coffee shops and truck stops replaced the saloons and cattle yards of boisterous cow towns, and motels and service stations replaced the hotels and blacksmith shops of territorial-era farm towns. These true ghost stories from the most haunted places in America will give you chills.
