    There are a couple of stories here. One is that a farmer went crazy and killed his family and neighbors with an axe. If you walk the road, you will sometimes find a hermit walking there.

    [​IMG]

    The recommendation is to NOT go looking for the hermit here. People are reminded of their vulnerability.

    [​IMG]

    There is also a claim that there was drag racing here years ago and that some went over the cliff at the end of the road and died.

    Might be a good time to leave . . . :evil

    This place was used as a cemetery for only a few years. Turns out the ground was too rocky so they gave up on burying people here.

    [​IMG]

    Many of the original markers have been reduced to rubble.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There are cold spots and eerie sensations here. Some report feelings overwhelming enough to make their hair stand up. Others reported the sounds of children playing - hiding about, talking, and playing games.

    [​IMG]

    The names of those buried here have been consolidated onto a single stone.

    The story here is that people hear footsteps following them in the basement. Music is heard upstairs when there is no one there.

    [​IMG]

    Cabinets open an close by themselves. Ghostly figures have been seen.

    Azzie is said to be one of the most spiritually charged places in the world. People report feelings like they are being stalked or hunted while in the area. There are some related stone pyramids on the bottom of nearby Rock Lake. Divers have reported strange experiences in their quest to locate and view the pyramids. The lake is said to be a sacred vortex of psychic energy in which time itself is bent.

    [​IMG]

    There are three primary earthen pyramids on the site. There are also the remains of a crematorium, a burial ground, and archeologists have found the evidence of defensive barriers similar to those reconstructed on the site. Some people have chosen to get married on top of the Pyramid of the Sun which has also been the scene of animal sacrifices by modern Satanists.

    There is said to be a wolf-like beast operating in this area. Many stories of people encountering the creature.

    [​IMG]

    When a woman stopped to see what she ran over she a beast ran after her and leaped onto her car as she tried to flee. The car was wet and the beast slid off but left claw marks.

    [​IMG]

    Many more encounters with the beast are described here.

    [​IMG]

    This is what some say the beast looks like. Animal carcasses have been found along this road. They were thought to have been used in rituals.

    Lots of stories about doors being slammed, lights being messed with, and desks being shuffled about by a ghost. A couple was frightened outside one night when they encountered a ghost. They both independently noted that a road sign that normally said "HILL" read "HELL" at the time.

    This account, from someone on the custodial staff, might be entertaining.

    I am watching a segment on the Syfy Channel (cable) about the Beast of Bray Road (from post 70 above).

    It will repeat tomorrow at 1900 hrs.

    The name of the show is Haunted Highway.

    This old church building is now an apartment building.

    [​IMG]

    Footsteps are heard when no one is there.

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes an old electrically powered bell will ring even though there is no wiring attached to it. If you try to pull on the bell's hammer by hand, you find it is very difficult to move.

    I'd go looking for that place, but I don't want to get hit in the knee with a rock. :D

    http://www.avclub.com/milwaukee/articles/dont-go-back-to-haunchyville,41933/

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haunchyville

    Locals say that within the woods near Muskego, Wisconsin lives a conclave of dwarves whose homes are built-to-scale and in the woods. In the mythical village is said to live an old albino man, who serves as their protector. Legend has it, if trespassers are caught, the unruly dwarves cut their legs from the knees down, so they are forced to live like one of them.

    Waypoint EC26 Stop Sign Near Boltonville

    The story is that some guy that lived near this intersection murdered his family.

    [​IMG]

    The sign appears to be bleeding. When you are far away the blood seems to be dripping from the sign. As you approach the sign it disappears.

    The park is said to be haunted by a drifter that drowned in a creek that passes through the park.

    [​IMG]

    There have been reports that a man walks the banks of the creek on certain nights. When approached, the man seems to walk into the creek and disappear. Strange noises come from sewer pipes on the park's north side.

    A worker there heard stories about the place and shrugged them off. Then he had problems with the lights being turned back on after he turned them off. He started having feelings that someone was watching him. One night he saw a figure of a man in the basement just prior to closing up.

    The place is said to be haunted by a former janitor named Duke that worked there until the day he died.

    Duke is said to be fond of shaking certain doors and occasionally moving things.
