Daryl Davis is a blues musician, but he also has what some might call an interesting hobby. For the past 30 years, Davis, a black man, has spent time befriending members of the Ku Klux Klan.
He says once the friendship blossoms, the Klansmen realize that their hate may be misguided. Since Davis started talking with these members, he says 200 Klansmen have given up their robes. When that happens, Davis collects the robes and keeps them in his home as a reminder of the dent he has made in racism by simply sitting down and having dinner with people.
Clinton Road begins at Route 23 near Newfoundland, in New Jersey, and runs 10 miles towards Upper Greenwood Lake. However, this isn’t any regular road. In fact, it’s said to be one of the most haunted roads in the world. The road is rife with much folklore and legends surrounding the paranormal. Furthermore, it is said that many strange creatures gather in the area surrounding this road as well as witches, satanists, and the Ku Klux Klan.
One legend says that if you stop at the bridge over “Dead Man’s Curve” and put a quarter in the middle of the road at midnight, the ghost of a young boy will appear to return the quarter to you. Allegedly, this ghost is of a little boy who drowned after falling off the bridge. There are many other deaths associated with Clinton Road. One more infamous case took place in 1983, when a dead body was discovered. An autopsy revealed ice crystals in the blood vessels of the victim. This victim was later attributed to Richard Kuklinski, the infamous “Iceman.”
Another legend tells of a young woman driving a ghost camaro. This young woman was said to have crashed in 1988 and can reportedly be spotted only at night. This isn’t the only phantom vehicle which haunts Clinton Road, however. Many people have reported even witnessing headlights that aren’t attached to any vehicle speeding down the road while others claim to have seen ghostly park rangers lurking around the lonely road.
