As you pass the new bridge over the small creek look to the east to see the remains of the Axeman's bridge. A man killed his family and disposed of the bodies at this bridge. Many have reported phantom screams in the night and even the sound of an axe spliting wood.
Todays remnants of the axeman's bridge.
Illinois mystery sites
Strange things happen in Illinois. I often take short trips to visit some of the mysterious locations throughout the state. I started this map so I could gauge where these places are. I also learned of many new places and hope the map helps you too. The map is more of a general marker than a detailed description of each spot. Research those that you find interesting, there are lots of books and other websites that can tell you more. I am updating this map often so come back and see what new mysteries have been discovered.
Please email me with anything I should include. Link above
