The Ghosts of Union county
It always sparked my interest about the 13 bumps for 13 witches on Johnston Drive, a long road that runs up the hills of Watchung Nj to Scotch Plains. This local legend in New Jersey said that 13 sisters who were to be killing children in that area that is known as Deserted Village. Throughout the time there, these witches who killed the children were tried, then hung and supposedly buried on the this road, and were left as bumps. Any time they pave the road, the bumps seem to pop back up every time, and there is no explanation for it. A city clerk in Watching said that recently they completed a paving in June, and they popped up again. Also, if you drive over the bumps and count them and say thirteen witches and turn around, you can see the witches behind you. This legend story, always made me wonder why the bumps simply pop back up? And if this is true about the witches being buried on the road.
