One of the more popular “haunted” tales revolve around the idea of a gravity hill; a place where gravity has no meaning. Those stories are interesting, as too are the roads in Indiana haunted by children.
The Chapman Road area in Fort Wayne is known as a gravity hill, or a place where gravity doesn’t apply. People who park on the small hill and place their car in neutral or park will have their car pushed back uphill, as if someone is standing there pushing it.
Another gravity hill is in Mooresville, Indiana. When you park your car at the bottom of the hill and put your car in neutral, something will force your car back up the hill. Local legend claims that a woman and her son were driving down the road and parked at the bottom of the hill to fix their flat tire. The two were killed when a car came down over the hill and hit them. Their ghosts are supposedly what pushes you back up the hill.
Yet another gravity hill is located in Westville. At the bottom of a hill you can park your car, put it in neutral, and feel you car moving back up the hill. This is attributed to a bus full of schoolchildren who were killed on a nearby railroad track.
In Bobtown, Indiana a haunted gravel road is known to locals as the Coffin. Legend claims that a police officer arrived there in the 1960’s to break up a party. The teenagers killed the man and hid him in an old tree. People now claim to see the man’s eyes glowing in the tree. The road is also supposed to be so dark that you can’t see anything, even with your headlights on.
Dunkirk’s Blood Road, also known as County Road 700, has an interesting story. A local farmer grew annoyed with his son because the boy would jump out of their truck while it was moving down the road. He tied a chain under his son and attached it to the truck. When the truck hit a bump in the road, the boy fell out.
The man couldn’t hear his son’s screams over the roar of the engine, and continued to drive for another two miles with his son dragging behind. People claim that if you drive the same route the man took, you’ll see a blood trail leading down the road following the same path the truck once took.
