When did the legend of Kelly Road in PA start?

The road is 2.57km (1,6 miles) long running north-south from Engle Road to Wolf Run Road through two stretches of dark woods. It’s totally paved. Although there is no urban legend mentioning exactly what causes the bad aura, some believe that Native Americans cursed the road when the land was taken away from them in the 1700s. Some sources say that there was a little girl who lived on the road and was killed there in the 50s. The murder remains unsolved. Nowadays, there are rumors of rituals and cult activity occurring in the forests near Kelly Road, so we don’t recommend going there after sundown. The popular theory is the supernatural occurrences is possibly linked to a curse placed on Mystery Mile by Native Americans, angry from the "White Man" taking their homes. Whatever the cause, after reaching the one-mile marker, the disturbances cease. Rumors of cult activity within the forest have only increased the legends surrounding this road.
