The Devil's Tramping Ground

Record #:
Ten miles from Siler City in western Chatham County, a strange story draws visitors to a cleared path in a perfect circle of trees on the property of L.R. Down. The story is that the Devil goes there to walk in circles as he thinks up new means of causing trouble for humanity. But there are additional legends relating to the area, including Indian tales of the lost colony of Roanoke.
