Witch peg

Charms, found in rural areas of the Ozarks, used to keeping witches from a home. They are made from cedar pegs with three prongs, and driven into the ground in a path to the door. According to folklore there is a belief that the prongs are associated with the Trinity. It is thought bad luck to step on or disturb a witch peg. A.G.H.
