Thanks for the interesting link about Cushing. It mentioned Ghost Hollow. I always wondered where it was but never found it for sure. I know exactly where one spooky place is in Payne County. It's the Dunkin Bridge area where it crosses the Cimarron River. It was really at it's spookiest prior to the great flood of 1986 when it was just an old one lane wooden bridge that made a lot of noise when one drove across it. The flood carried that awful bridge away and it's not scary now that it's built back as a modern two lane bridge.

But what's really scary is what lies about a mile south of that bridge. It's the neatly maintained Dunkin Family Plot. But almost next to it is said to be a small old Indian cemetary. It's poorly taken care of. One time my friend was out there fooling around and with one foot nearly fell through one of the graves. I also heard that one night a bunch of people went out there to have a party. Somebody yelled they saw a ghost and the party quickly got the hell out of there. Who knows? Maybe the place I'm talking about is Ghost Hollow!

I do believe that is Ghost Hollow! I've been there before when I was younger but never since I've been old enough to get there myself. My friends and I would have hayrides through ghost hollow.... fun times...

Thanks for the information! I just wish I could find more pictures....

Well, when going south on highway 18, headed toward Ripley, just before you get to the bridge, you turn left to get on the river road and keep going, surely less than a mile, or so, until the road turns north. There along the side of the road is probably where kids hang out late at night to get drunk, until someone screams they see a ghost and then everyone panics and gets the hell out of there. Somewhere, a little further north from there, near an oil well on private land is where ghost hollow is. However, the tree where someone was hanged from is supposedly gone. Or, maybe not?? Still, though, the area is kinda spooky from all the heavy forested growth. The road going north out of the area is called Bethel Road and trees arch over it, and so it's kinda like you're driving through a tunnel. It helps make things spooky. Maybe there's someone else more familiar with the area than I am.

Thanks for the very nice photos, Stillwatertownie! I went to truck driving school in nearby Drumright (The Town of Oil Repute) and really enjoyed living in the area!

Family from California just moved in up the street from there. Small world. Given the addons to the house, it probably was smaller then.

She loves it here. I'd have loved to see downtown before it got so tired looking.
