The Story: Legend has it that a past tragedy involving a train derailment is what has brought all these spirits here. Stop your car at night and you can hear laughing, screaming, and then a crashing noise, as if the train is derailing over and over again, stuck in time. They say there are like 7 or so gates...and an underground cult in the area.
Another Story: 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.
Location: Diamond, Indiana which is North of Brazil, Indiana.
Directions: These are the directions we used. They worked well and we found the place with no problem. North on Hwy. 59 out of Brazil, In. Turn West on County Road 1350. Keep going, there will be two or three stop signs, straight ahead until you reach Rock Run Rd. Turn onto it and follow the road and around a turn ahead there is the first of Hell's Gates.
We visited Hell's Gate on Tuesday May 11, 2004 at 11:30 pm. It was a clear night with temperatures in the middle 70's. We did what it says in the story and flashed our lights three times, then drove through and turned around. Then went and parked in the middle of the bridge with our car turned off. We waited and waited, but never saw any blood dripping down the walls, or any banging on the windows. It was pitch black in the tunnel which made it pretty cool, especially since it says that there are cults. We locked the doors and rolled up the windows just in case they tried anything. We took a few pictures of the place, but didn't really get much, maybe a couple of orbs. We didn't hear any screams or noises that sounded like a train crash. We were a little disappointed that nothing happened, but we kind of expected that. It says that there are others, but we weren't in the mood to go find more after we had already spent 2 hours looking for the Indian Burial Ground. Hell's Gate is worth checking out if you are around the Brazil area and is great if you want to scare someone. If you get scared easily you better make sure you bring an extra pair of underwear because you'll need them.
