Buckout Road

Westchester County’s alleged haunted street Buckout Road
Murders, war battles, slave trade, executions, arson, suicides, grave robbing, and ghost
sightings. Those are just some of the factual events which occurred on New York State’s
alleged most haunted street Buckout Road.  It has been the source of spooky urban legends
for decades ranging from the curse of three witches to cannibal albinos.  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 myth, lore, and nightmares for generations.

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.  Multi million dollar
mansions currently sit on the road, just a mere half hour north of Manhattan, on a site where
Revolutionary War guns fired, Native Americans were slain, and Quakers illegally helped free
slaves. The area was visited for decades by the infamous Leatherman and home to various
luminaries including actor John Barrymore and pro wrestling pioneer William Muldoon.

Stories of three executed witches,
a clan of cannibal albinos, the
residence of serial killer Albert
Fish, and various ghost sightings
among other urban legends have
circulated the area for generations.

Some claim the area is haunted,
others claim it’s not.
Investigate the facts and  draw
your own conclusions.

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.

My non fiction book Buckout Road
is available for $9.14.
