Eric Pleska's website about Buckout Road - the alleged haunted road of Westchester County, NY
tapout

- Buckout Road

The several mile curvy road connects the Eastern part of White Plains to neighboring West Harrison.

The woodsy back road is rooted in history dating to the 1600s that is arguably just as twisted as the road itself.

Native American Folk Lore, Revolutionary War Battles, Murders, a Hanging, a Serial Killer, a Slave Cemetery, Grave Robbings, and every single urban legend you can think of ranging from flesh eating albinos to paranormal activity. Its all here.

Buckout Road gained notoriety in the 1970's as a destination for Westchester teens to party in the
woods and attempt to spook each other. The road was very dark, curvy, and had very few houses
until the 1990's when mass construction changed the land scape of the road. Suddenly the road
grew wide, had lights, and mansions. That said if the average person drives the road now it's not
overly eerie, however if someone is interested in paranormal activity , you might have fun with EVP
and dowsing rods.  Is the road haunted? That is really up to each individual to form an opinion on.

Rumor has it that residents on the road in the 1970's & 80's created spooky urban legends in an
attempt to scare people away from frequenting the road. Ironically, this only enticed people even
more.  The real irony is that the actual history of the road is a bit spookier than the popularized
fictitious tales. While there is a twisted history there is a dash of non spooky and rather interesting
history as well.  I ask that no matter what people 'take' from reading this website that they stay
respectful to the area and its residents.

There are several cemeteries on Buckout Road. This one, referred to
as The Buckhout & Foster Burial Ground has been victimized by grave
robbings and vandalism. The end result is one standing head stone
belonging to John Buckhout and his wife Charlotte Cowan.
I read an article in the local newspaper (at the time was called The
Reporter's Dispatch) which stated the Historical Society had
'discovered' there were in fact 43 people buried here.  It went on to
state  they would erect a monument.  They never did. I contacted them
several times, they never responded. It's now over 10 years later.
As it had always personally bothered me that 41 individuals' resting
place was disturbed with no markers behind, I spent some time
researching and compiled the list the below.
