Ax-Man's House - Ax-Man's Bridge - Crete IL Real Haunted Places
- Off Old Post Rd.
- Crete, IL
The story of this haunt is that a man killed his wife, kids, and two policeman with an ax in the 1970's before hanging their bodies from meat hooks in his shed. He ran from the cops when they found out about the killings and the cops shot him in the woods near the small bridge. The house is now gone but many say the bridge and woods are now haunted. Witnesses have reported hearing children screaming or laughing, seeing the apparition of a crying woman, strange lights coming from the woods and the sound of someone running.
Not much to see here
Old Post Road is a nice ride on a motorcycle. There is nowhere to park and only a very narrow shoulder. We ended up just parking our bikes as far over to the side of the bridge as possible. We walked north & south of the bridge a bit, looking for a way to get into the woods & further down the creek to the old bridge. Never found a way to get closer. Drove around looking for a possible back way in with no luck. Everything here is private, residential property.
A nice ride, but a total bummer of a haunt. Just a bridge over a creek.Posted 8/19/18
