Route 66 is littered with legends and tales, some of which take on a ghostly nature.  Along our travels of the historic Mother Road, we've bumped into a fair share of haunted hotels, ghosts lurking in restaurants, and few that just seem to like to take a leisurely walk down old Route 66.


If you know of a ghostly tale in one of the many historic places along Route 66, please email it and we'll be happy to feature your story on Legends of America.

For over all there hung a cloud of fear,
a sense of mystery the spirit daunted,
and said as plain as a whisper in the ear,
"The place is haunted."
