Driving Down This Haunted Connecticut Road Will Give You Nightmares

Saw Mill City Road is unlike other haunted road in Connecticut because it’s not hiding behind a gate, it’s not unpaved, and it’s not private. Anyone can dare to take this road after dark, but according to local stories, I wouldn’t recommend driving too slowly or getting out of the car to explore. Especially in the summer!

But who, or what, are the Mellon Heads? According to urban legends spreading across America, they are a growing population of inbred monsters living in the depths of the woods. Some say they may even be cannibals. They may be especially malignant in Connecticut due to breeding with escaped mental patients seeking cover in the woods during the 1970s. You can see someone’s story of their encounter here.

Yikes! Have you ever taken a drive down Saw Mill City Road?
