The original road here was a stagecoach route between Ebenezer Church and the township of Goshen in Union county South Carolina.
People claim that you will be driving thru this area and that no matter what speed you are going the dog will be running beside you. If you stop it will be setting in front of your car. Some people have claimed it throws its head back and howls.People have been seeing the Hound of Goshen now for 150 years. There are usually several reports of people in the area seeing it every year. It seems it is seen more in Summer than Winter.
