McCall's Haunted Farm

The McCall family owned this land for centuries. They farmed the land and raised livestock for their butcher shop. Then, in the early 70s the State Highway Dept. decided to build an interstate right through the farm. Mr. McCall fought it with all he had, but in the end lost. He was never the same after this defeat. He watched helplessly as the highway was constructed right through his family land.

Over time the farm fell into ruin, a shadow of its former self. Mysteriously, his family was never seen or heard from again.   It was rumored that Farmer McCall slaughtered his wife and children, though there was no evidence to prove it. In the following years, there were even more rumors of missing tourists that broke down on the road near the farm. There were superficial investigations by the local authorities, but they could never find any evidence that Mr. McCall had anything to do with the mysterious disappearances. Some locals suggested that Mr. McCall was butchering motorists that broke down near his farm. Shortly after these rumors began to circulate, Mr. McCall seemed to disappear as well.   Finally, local officials searched the farm for Mr. McCall and his family after no one had seen or heard from them in months.

Their worst fears were realized when they found skeletal remains of many missing tourists. The most shocking discovery, however, was the shallow graves of Mrs. McCall and their 4 children. Mr. McCall was never found. However, some still claim to see him tending the fields at night, carrying on his gruesome work.
