Westchester County's alleged haunted street Buckout Road
The woodsy back road that connects the eastern part of White Plains NY to the western
part of neighboring Harrison within Westchester County has been the center of urban
legends, ghost stories, and bizarre history for decades.

Named after the Buckhout family, Buckout Road is not a Halloween attraction, it is a legit
street with an eerie history dating back to the Siwanoy tribe in the 1600's.  The history of
the road & the family it's named after include gruesome murders, Revolutionary War
battles,  a hanging, grave robbing, and Quakers that illegally helped free slaves resulting
in the largest Black population in New York.
After 20 years of exploring the
area, conducting research,  
interviewing local residents,
historians, and descendants of the
Buckhout family, and being
interviewed by numerous
publications, I wrote a book.

Buckout Road

"I know who found the farmer dead, laid out
in a cross shape in front of the front porch,
eyes open, gone. I used to feel something
looking at me from the window that was on
the third floor of the house, facing west,
which I could see from my bathroom
window, a dark hole of terror,  I went in the
house, cluttered with junk and went into the
Buckhout mansion at 13, scared, Love Lane,
the slaughter houses, the church that was
trashed, saw a car off the road once, and the
best is probably when I was maybe 13 or 14,
walking past the small graveyard, jumped up
on the wall, and saw in horror (at 14) the
empty freshly dug pit that contained Mary
Foster's coffin, stolen, with two shovels left
behind. She had a stone up there, and they
were all knocked over"  - Rick
