- 6 of 6Jamestown Road, Jamestown, North CarolinaJamestown Road in Jamestown, North Carolina, Guilford County, North Carolina, is the subject of local folklore that includes sightings of a young woman in a white party dress, often seen thumbing for a ride on misty evenings, just before dark.

Such sightings have been reported since the 1930s. This is published in the North Carolina book of Ghost Stories. The original road has been abandoned and replaced by a new road.

It is said that she can be seen either standing at the old underpass or walking down the road. However, Guilford County Police do not take kindly to people stopping there so it is best that you keep driving whether you see anything or not, otherwise you could be subjected to a hefty fine.
