Chatham County Is Allegedly One Of North Carolina’s Most Haunted Small Counties
Located outside of Siler City to the south is the Devil’s Tramping Ground, a private property in Chatham County that defies explanation. The inexplicable, 40-foot-wide circle is located among a lush forest of pine trees, but remains completely barren. Nothing grows within this circle, no matter what is planted. Even grass dies inside the spot. And rumor has it that anything placed inside the circle disappears overnight.
Chatham County is a charming, seemingly quiet are in North Carolina. But it's clocked in bone-chilling stories and superstition.
One of the more chilling tales involves a massacre of indigenous people. And this is said to be the reason for the county's strangest phenomenon.
Within the hauntingly beautiful Devil’s Tramping Ground, there is a spot where nothing has grown for centuries.
It's as if the devil himself had something to do with the mysterious circle. The popular anomaly continues to draw visitors to this day.
The haunted circle exists on private land, so please be respectful and courteous. But if you accidentally leave something in the circle, don't worry -- because legend has it that it won't be there upon your return.
The lush greenery of the surrounding forest adds to the mystery of the Devil's Tramping Ground. Nowhere else in the area seems to be as desolate as the circular area.
It's anyone's guess as to why nothing grows in the spot, even though the ground appears to be very fertile.
There is even a street named after the area. It truly takes a brave soul to live on Devil Tramping Ground Road!
