Unlike many of the other local legends I've talked about in the past (places like Stull, KS and Sauer's Castle) I was totally unfamiliar with the mythos of Rickey Road until I went actively searching online for haunted places around town to check out. A lot of that probably has to do with the fact that RR is sort of opposite to me in the spectrum of the KC metropolitan area, out in the suburbs of Independence, MO whereas I'm here in Roeland Park, KS. My guess would be that for those growing up in Independence however this is or at least at some point was quite the legendary haunt.
However, what was supposedly once a desolate and unlit road now has the tell tale marks of creeping civilization. Street lamps, houses. Deforestation. I mean, it's still not the most happen' spot in KC but neither is it completely isolated. Coming off of Noland Rd the stone wall (very present, not magically appearing) is indeed there but soon after you start running into homes. Not many, but a few. And they all have these vast, neatly manicured lawns. After those, a bit more forest, then a few more homes, more forest, more homes, and so on until RR turns into E 67th St (which you can all see for yourselves on Google Maps). I definitely don't want to say that the place isn't haunted, as we only did a drive through and not a proper investigation but based on first impressions it didn't seem exceptionally more creepy then any other stretch of semi-rural road.
If anyone lives in the area and knows anything more or has actually had an encounter I would love to here from you!
