Hell’s Gates was an old heavy, black set of gates guarding a private driveway leading to a sizable mansion at the base of Green Mountain in Huntsville, Alabama. A phantom car drives down the road and subsequently disappears, seemingly to scare visitors away. The gates were private property, belonging to the man residing in the mansion. Visitors report hearing mysterious chanting, disembodied screams, and the sounds of rrunning and walking in the area behind the gates known as Owens Cross Roads. Hell’s Gates were eventually removed.
