Covette Tunnel

3899 Piney Fork Rd, South Park Township, PA 15129, United States

Piney Fork Tunnel on Piney Fork Road is also known as “Corvette Tunnel”. The tunnel is very narrow and lies adjacent to a sharp turn in the Road. Legend has it that 2 corvettes were drag racing, and only one could fit into the tunnel. The other met a horrific end, leading to the death of a young girl. Some have said you can still hear the screeching of tires and the screams of the young girl if you visit at night. Also, if you dare to flash your headlights 3 times into the tunnel, the ghostly headlights of a corvette will appear, heading right at you! It should be noted that this tunnel is often confused with Green Man’s Tunnel, which lies in the same vicinity, but is apparently off of the roadway.– Read More…

Jean Bonnet Tavern

The Jean Bonnet Tavern in Bedford was built in the 1760s. At one point, the building was used as a prison, and several condemned prisoners were hanged on location. So it is not surprising that the building has developed a reputation for paranormal activity over its many years! One ghost is that of a young girl waiting for her lover to return. Her footsteps can be heard running to the window, pausing, then slowly walking back again.– Read More…

The Deacon of The Depreciating Lands Museum

4743 S Pioneer Rd, Allison Park, PA 15101

The Depreciating Lands Museum is located near Route 8 in Hampton Township. It is a small museum, primarily used for education about pioneer life. It is known for its day camps and programs for young children. The building that it occupies was built in 1839, and was originally a Presbyterian church. For that reason, the friendly spirit that is rumored to be there has been named “The Deacon”. Tales of The Deacon & the haunted house began in the mid seventies, during building renovations. The Deacon’s purpose is typically to ensure safety, as if he is still watching out for those that occupy his building. Instances include the helping of a young boy on a ladder and the protection of workers from a ceiling cave in.– Read More…

Glowing Tombstone of Hoffman Cemetery

Hoffman Cemetery, Smithton, PA 15479, United States

From a certain viewpoint along Stahl Road, looking across the valley at the cemetery, one tombstone in particular appears to glow against the night sky. This has been known for decades, but in recent years cornstalks have blocked the view during the summer / fall. I have not been there in quite some time so I do not know the current status. A simple study years ago concluded that the strange light is indeed coming from a certain tombstone, but to this day it is not known why. Some have said it is a reflection from a far off street light, but this seems unlikely. The tombstone does not glow when standing near it; you can only see the eerie glow from the vantage point across the roadway! Because of this, the cemetery has grown legendary in the local area.– Read More…
