Riverdale Road - Real Haunt in Thornton CO
Riverdale Road, a winding 11-mile path between Thornton and Brighton, is at center of many supposed haunting and paranormal happenings. The earliest rumors are of a nearby Native American burial ground which places curses on trespassers, and of entities taking animal form along the road. Supposedly there are both good and evil forces at work here; take caution if you see a grey fox, as that is the manifestation of an evil spirit, but if instead you see a coyote it means there is a good entity watching over you. On the north end of the road, not far from Highway 7, there was stood a large home; however, one day the owner of the house was possessed by a demon and he burned it to the ground with his family still inside. The house had large iron gates out front, which locals have taken to calling The Gates of Hell. It is rumored that an entire community of Satanists once lived in the area and performed rituals in a field on the side of the road. An old dairy on Riverdale is also said to be home to a tree which was used hang women accused of witchcraft. Street signs on Riverdale Road are sometimes found to be covered in dried blood and small handprints. This is thought to be the work of a ghost who, while alive, was a young boy that walked the road on his way to school. Sadly, the boy was killed while on his daily commute, and now his spirit seems to be stuck there. Some passersby have also reported seeing the ghosts of a jogger and a lady in white along the side of the street.
