The Twisted Lady Route is named in honor of the famous outlaw Belle Starr who was known as “the Twisted Lady”. Belle used the old mountain trail that is now Highway 327 to visit her lover, Cole Younger and his friends Jesse and Frank James, all illustrious outlaws. Frank James had a home in Newton County and one of their favorite haunts was Alum Cove located along Highway 327. Frank James’ grave is actually located in Snow Cemetery just off Highway 327.
