Anderson

Cry Baby Bridge - The Cry Baby Bridge is where a baby died in the car crash. It wasn't found when the police came and the baby was left. It ended up dying. If you go across the bridge you can hear it crying.

Gruenwald Historic House - On a full moon there is a lot of ghost activity here.  

Lindberg Rd. - On Lindberg rd. down towards Alex Pike. There is a supposed haunted house. It has a partially caved in roof. Neighbors say they have heard strange hiss-like sounds coming from the house. Me and a friend have broken into it before and we did a little research. Supposedly the house was caught on fire close to 20 years ago with the family still in it. All of them escaped except for the middle son, whom supposedly haunts the house. The floor caves in, in many areas of the house and there's ashes all over the place. Supposedly no body was ever found of the boy. Few eye witnesses have supposedly seen a ghost like chandelier hanging even when part of the ceiling is missing. Typical paranormal activity happens such as moving old lamps and such. The biggest spook is that when the wind blows, it will draw pictures in the ashes of a family and house. All the people you can see but the middle sons picture has a hand print over it instead of being drawn.

Mounds State Park - Some people have reported encountering blue-gowned dwarves in the park and nearby along the White River at Loblesville. According to Delaware Indian legend, they are the Puk-wud-ies, a tribe of little people that still inhabit the forest.

Old Anderson High School - the haunting is in two different places but due to the fire that happened there the older half is no longer there.  In the basement of the gym you can hear screams of a young girl there due to the fact she was raped and killed there.

Wing Haven Nature Preserve - for the last 25-30 years there have been rumors that a coven of witches conducted a ritual there, and accidentally released a spirit or demon(?)  The spirit or demon is contained in the stream, but if you get too close to the stream it attempts to make contact with you.  Some people have claimed to have had unexplained flat tires, or electrical problems with their cars if they park their cars past the public parking lot.  Some people have claimed that they have had suicidal or violent urges while standing near the stream or looking into the stream.

Avon

The Haunted Bridge - a railway bridge over White Lick Creek.  The ghost of an Irish worker who was killed many years is said to haunt the remains of this old railroad trestle in Central Indiana.  He was one of many Irish workers who were hired cheap to help build a bridge across White Lick Creek back in the 1850's.  The workers were building pylons that would support the bridge and doing this by framing up the sides of a base and pouring concrete inside.  One afternoon, a wooden platform collapsed and dumped one of the workers into the wet cement.  He slowly sank into the pylon and the other workers could hear his fists hammering against the wooden sides as he drowned.  There had been nothing that could have been done to save him...one minute he was there and the next he had vanished! Construction was delayed for several hours while the company tried to decide what to do.  Finally, they declined to tear the pylon apart to find the body of a man who was obviously dead and work continued, despite the protests of some of the more superstitious workers.  For some years after that, local residents reported the sounds of the man's final screams as he pitched into the concrete.  They also claimed, along with a number of railroad men, that the sounds of hammering could be heard coming from inside the concrete pylon.  After the trestle was torn down many years later, people started to report the apparition of the man could be seen wandering the area, trying to flag down oncoming trains.

If you get out of your car and scream bloody murder into the night sky he will track you down and drag your body into his domain where you will be eaten bones and all.

Brazil


100 Step Cemetery - At midnight, if you walk up the stairs on the grassy side of the cemetery, there are graves dating back to the 1860s all around. On one's way up you count the steps. When you reach the top, you must turn toward the open field and the ghost of the cemetery's first undertaker will appear. Without saying anything he will reveal the climbers own death to them in a vision. The hiker MUST proceed down the steps, counting them again. If they do not get the same number as they counted before then they will die the way they saw but if they do the vision was wrong. If anyone dares to try to reach the top or level ground by not using the steps, they will be pushed to the ground by a phantom hand which will leave a red imprint on the persons back for several days so those who see it can see the mark of the Devil.  Another version goes like this, Carpenter's Cemetery lies just west of 340 and US 40 on CR 675. Locally it is better known as 100 steps. Legend has it that, on the darkest nights when you can't see your hand in front of you, you can walk up the broken steps of this cemetery and count 100 steps. As you walk down, you can count only 99. Its a hard trick to do when there are only 60 or so steps there any other time. The night must be total and you must not be able to see where you step. Legend tells of those trying to walk beside the steps on the ground and of people being knocked down hard to the ground with handprints appearing on their chest. The legend continues that if you are able to safely navigate the steps in the pitch of darkness and make the magical count, then that night before the rise of the sun, the spirit of the original caretaker will make known to you the manner of your death.

Haunted Church - the church is kind of old and if you look at the church you see a light in the church.  You can see figures of body's looking out the broken vents and windows.  At the top of the church where the steeple is you can see the the cross is broken and it looks like someone is hanging on the broken cross. You see lights fly past you and across the church its not a big light is a little light kind of looks like the spook light from spoke light hill.  It can be a real calm day and the wind will start to blow. This church is on 300 w. the other way from spook light

Hell's Gate - Go through Brazil going north on the main road. You will go over a bridge or overpass then you turn left on 1500 road. Go down that street until you get to an old train tunnel. Stop the car and flash your lights three times. Then go through and turn around. Go through again, but stop in the middle this time. Turn your car off and sit there for 10 minutes. Then the graffiti will start to glow and blood will run down the walls. If you see your name on the wall, banging on the windows and the roof of the car will start. After it stops, start car again and go through. There is a tree and you will see (if you see your name on the wall) two kids hanging from the tree, but don't stay to look around go fast cause after you see your name your supposed to die.   There are seven different bridges in that area and you are supposed to drive through all of these bridges starting by going down Coal Bluff Rd. and at the end of driving through all 7, you look back and you will see Hell's Gates closing behind you.

Old Indian Burial Ground - A cemetery where an Indian buried himself up there for some odd reason. If you climb up there at midnight and stand there for a second you can hear drums and howling. Some have even seen the shadow of the lonely Indian.

The Plantation - From the SR 59 and 42 intersection, take 42 East about 7 miles until you come across a Boy Scout Road. Turn North on this road and go about 1.2 miles and you will come to a lane on your right side. It is hard to see because the grass is so thick. There will be an old shed on the left side of the road here. Take the lane back and you will discover the front wall of an old home (the rest has been demolished), several sheds, and a barn or two. The larger barn has a loft that you can access easily by a staircase. There is no real legend of this place, but it may be worth checking out!

Spook Light Hill - A ghost of a father looking for the head of his daughter. A car flashes it's headlights three times and a light can be seen coming down the road and "scanning" the area.  

Shadow Beasts - You'll see what seems to be a couple of bushes, and one obviously is, but the other seems to be fainter in shadow and doesn't pass as the car passes, it appears to run along with you.  People have observed this during a midnight drive. They call them "Shadow Beasts." They also said that they witnessed more than one, and that they were much more interactive.   But the strangest thing is that this figure absorbs light...when you attempted to disprove this "thing" by thinking it's just-another-bush theory, shine your headlights in the direction of the known bush, and the unknown shadow. The bush was immediately illuminated and confirmed of it's nature, the shadow, seemed to disappear completely. Then as you drive away, it will be there again, running right along with you.

Stop Sign Mary - Right after you do Hell's Gates, in Brazil, Indiana, go through to the other side. You will see a T that one road goes to the left no right turn, and a stop sign that you just passed while turning. Go to that road. As soon as you turn on that road fully, stop, and turn off your lights and honk. There is a T sign behind you. Look at it and push on the brakes. People say that the sign will BLEED. Others say nothing happened

Bridge - This bridge is right down the road from Little Egypt. If you go and park your car or just park a little off the bridge and you get out there is a tall dark thing about 7-8 ft tall.

I strongly suggest the un-stable mind stay out of here too, unless you are up for psychological damage.

Little Egypt - Many claims have been made of apparitions appearing at night at the cemetery. There have also been claims of driving around the cemetery and hand prints appearing on your windshield.

This begins the stretch of the road called the land of Moses that leads to Gypsy hill. This area is extremely dark at night and there is an area that Gypsies congregated at near the Indiana/Ohio line. This area is covered by a dense dark forest. Rumor has it that the gypsies kidnapped and raped a farmer's daughter in the early 1900's. The farmers then banded together and killed the gypsies. Over the next 10 years the farmers all were killed by an axe. One report said that a gypsy returned from the dead and haunted the woods, which is where the farmers bodies were found.

Chesterton

Diana Of The Dunes - Around 1915, the area that is now the Dunes State Park in northern Indiana was mostly uninhabited wilderness. The stories spread around the vicinity of Chesterton , Indiana that fishermen who were along the beach at certain times of the day had been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a naked woman swimming in the lake. The story spread that a beautiful woman was living as a hermit along the beach and her notoriety grew to a point that many compared her to the ancient Greek goddess Diana...hence the name of this legendary creature. In truth, her name was Alice Marble Gray and she was the daughter of an influential couple from Chicago . Alice had traveled extensively and was cultured and educated. She had worked in the city as an editorial secretary for a popular magazine, so what had made her take up the lonely life of a recluse. Some have claimed that Alice came to the dunes because of a broken love affair but actually she left the city life because her deteriorating eyesight had made her work impossible. She had sought refuge in the rough land that she had enjoyed as a child. Alice moved into an abandoned fisherman's cottage on the beach and lived a life of peace, borrowing books from the library, walking in the woods and of course, swimming naked in the chilly waters of Lake Michigan . In 1920, Alice met a drifter named Paul Wilson and he moved into the cabin with her. He was an unemployed boat builder with a shaky past but he seemed to make Alice happy and the two of them stayed together until 1922.... when tragedy struck. The badly burned and beaten body of a man was found on the beach and police suspected that Wilson had a hand in the murder. He was questioned but eventually let go. He and Alice moved to nearby Michigan City , Indiana, where they made a small living selling handmade furniture. Alice bore her husband two daughters but he treated her terribly, often beating her severely. In 1925, Alice died in her home, shortly after the birth of her second daughter. The official cause of death was said to be uremia poisoning...complicated by repeated blows to her back and stomach. Wilson disappeared and later turned up in a California prison, serving time for auto theft. The fate of Alice's daughters is unknown. Legends of the dunes say that Alice still returns to the beach and the wilderness that she loved so much. Over the years, many have claimed that they have seen the ghostly figure of a nude woman running along the sand or disappearing into the water.

As the train went by this underpass one of the men was distracted for a second and when he looked back the other man was gone. No one knows what happened to that man. Some stories say he was pushed, others say he fell, and there are others that say he jumped. People say they have seen his ghost around the bridge still looking for the train that left him behind so many years ago.

This old woman would speak to a friend about how there was kids that would break stuff on her property, sneak up to the windows and look in, and overall harass her.

The building stood for a while but now all that stands is the chimney. people who go there for a "spook show" are run off by the ghost of this woman because she feels like they are no better than the teens that killed her. There was no new house built on her hill.

As you walk down the stairs, it gets colder and colder, and more unsettling, but you can NEVER reach the end. You can keep walking for a long time and never reach the basement at all. But no matter how long it takes you to walk as far as you dare, when you turn around to go back upstairs, it only takes a fraction of the time to get back to the staircase. One witness reports, ""We walked downstairs for 20 minutes once, and it only took us 3 minutes to get back to the top again.

She went to see what was going on and they both told her that there was a man at the top of the stairs (the stairs that led to the balcony). The woman called one of the workers in and he asked the kids what the man looked like. They gave him�a very elaborate description. A few days later that same worker was closing up after the shows and was making sure the emergency exits were closed. As he walked out of the hallway to the one exit he looked up to the projection room and saw a man duck his head really quickly. The man fit the same description the 3 and 5 year old children gave just days before. He ran immediately upstairs; the only way to get to the projection room and there was no one to be found. About a week later a man came along and bought The Strand and the worker noticed this man looked very familiar.
