Stay Away From Washington’s Most Haunted Street After Dark Or You May Be Sorry
You may have heard the rumors about Holland Road in Bremerton being haunted. While those stories are certainly spooky, there’s another street in Western Washington with so much reported paranormal activity that it makes Holland Road look tame. We’re not claiming that these stories are all true, but some of them are pretty compelling.
You’ll find this eerie street in Marysville.
It’s now called Marine Drive and Fire Trail Road, but it has also been called Marysville-Pilchuck Road.
The name of this road may have changed over the years, but the ghost stories have remained consistent.
The most common story is that someone who is driving down the road will look in the rearview mirror and see a person sitting in their backseat. But when the driver turns around, the person is gone. Locals also claim to have seen apparitions of Native Americans on the side of the road (part of this area is on the Tulalip Reservation).
And then there is the Fire Trail Ghost, which is said to be a protective entity.
According to local legend, the Fire Trail Ghost is the spirit of a man who was driving too fast along the graveled portion of the street. His car went off the road into a swamp (or possibly Cummings Lake), and he drowned. Phantom lights have been seen at the crest of a certain hill along the road, appearing as a glowing ball that disappears after about 30 seconds. This might be the Fire Trail Ghost warning drivers of the dangers on the road.
Some people claim they have even seen someone running alongside their car keeping pace with it when they’re going 35 MPH.
Either Washington is home to the world’s fastest runners or there’s something off about that street.
There are more ghost stories, including people spotting apparitions of firefighters on the road.
You’ll find that quite a few people in Marysville have seen something suspicious in the area. And if they haven’t seen anything themselves, they know someone with a story.
