Land's End Road

Land's End Road on St. Helena Island near Beaufort, South Carolina, has attracted ghost hunters for decades as home of the Hanging Tree, a grim landmark depicting where runaway slaves were hung as a warning to others who wanted to escape. According to legend, the ghosts of murdered slaves appear in the form of a blinding white light and speed toward motorists before disappearing as quickly as it appeared.
