Haunted Roads of Western Pennsylvania
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Join us for a spooky presentation of the state’s haunted roadways led by author and archivist Thomas White.

There are ghostly travelers who forever wander the lonely roads of Western Pennsylvania. A creeping fog rises from Blue Mist Road, and stories of car crashes, lynchings and even strange beasts haunt this isolated stretch outside Pittsburgh. Is it the angry spirit of a jealous husband or a gypsy king who stalks Erie County’s Axe Murder Hollow? Shades of Death Road in Washington County may be host to phantom coal miners killed during a deadly labor dispute.

So hitch a ride —if you dare!— and travel with us to discover the region’s ghost tales and mysterious legends that lead to . . . the end of the road!

Copies of the author’s books will be on sale following the presentation.

Bio: Thomas White is the university archivist and curator of special collections in the Gumberg Library at Duquesne University. He is also an adjunct lecturer in Duquesne’s history department and an adjunct professor of history at La Roche College. White received a master’s degree in public history from Duquesne University. He is the published author of nine books, all of which focus on Pennsylvania history.
