Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Bloods Point Road

Cherry Valley, Illinois

If one travels on this road toward the cemetery, he will notice a bridge just above the train tracks. Once, a school bus filled with children flew off the bridge, killing all the passengers. Today, if a car is put in neutral on this spot, it will be mysteriously pushed across the bridge. There is also a traffic light in the area that seems to change locations. In the cemetery many have seen a ghost and heard whistling.

I didn’t write that, but I happen to live less than a half hour from Blood’s Point, and I and many of my friends, have been, more than once. (We did not all go at the same time.) There is also a truck that chases cars, and sometimes runs them off the road, before dissapearing into thin air. And i’ve seen pictures of orbs taken in the cemetary. And, there’s supposedly a witch that lives on that road. (Sorry, I’ve never tried the bridge thing, I’m afraid to go on it, but I’ve heard many stories about it. It’s said to be the most hanuted part of the whole place. However I believe it’s actually on Sweeney Rd., not Blood’s Point.)

I also go there a lot but not to ghost hunt. You see I truely enjoy masterbating there as I feel like someone is always watching me. Makes me so excited I usually end up cumming more than once.

P.S. at sweeney bridge there is a big metal electrical tower and the ghosts seem to love that area but dont stay in there for too long but they get mad and youll hear stuff like whispering or evenslow or fast footsteps but be careful there are thorny bushes out there and barbed wire too!

I’ve been a lot i go there all tha time i dont live to far away and to see a lot of this stuff u have to keep going back. It dont happen every night and you have to make sure your in the right place. If your expecting to see a ghost thats on tha street 2 3 streets over ur not gonna see it. To any one who dont believe it its real. The getting pushed off the tracks put baby powder on the back of your car and sit on the tracks it dont happen everytime but if it does you will see that its the little kids pushing you off (Saving your life from what they experienced) there will be little kid hand prints on the car.

Just to clarify everyone, I was just out on the bloodspoint bridge. And it is haunted. We where stopped in the middle of the bridge in park. Our dog we had with us started to freak out and so we decided to leave. My friend went to put her car into drive and the shifter wouldn’t shift. It was stuck in park. Ok this isn’t some pile of **** car either. It’s a newer car that has never had any problems of the sort. We finally got it shifted into drive and went down to the next driveway to turn around and the car shifted just fine anfter that. The cemetary is the next stop. I was too chicken to go in there after the whole car thing so planning on going tonight to take pictures and such.

I went to high school in Rockford and I went to Blood’s Point once with 5 other friends of mine. We had a few beers, while parked next to the cemetary. If I’m remembering correctly, there’s a farm house just down the street (east) of the cemetary, on the south side of the road… I could have my barrings off, it has been 15yrs ago or so now…Anyway, we all went in the cemetary, I believe it wasn’t very big?? My friend Kathy, Maureen, and I sat down, and took out our guija board (spelling?). We had asked the spirits if anyone wanted to talk to us. A woman said yes. I can’t remember a whole lot, but I’ll try. Kathy did the asking, she asked her how old she was, middle aged, not sure of exact age, anymore. She said that she had died in some kind of accident, maybe car? I think she was run over…. Again, so long ago… Kathy had asked her a question, and for some reason, I remember it scaring us enough for us 3 girls to want to leave. The 2 guys that came with, Greg, and Kathy’s friend? I can’t remember his name. But he was really nice.. They laughed at us when they saw how scared we were! We all went back to the car, and headed back home. But Greg, being the smart aleck that he always was! He decided to go back on the bridge!! We got towards the bridge, and the car acted like it was gonna stall! Us 3 just yelled at Greg to knock it off!! That we weren’t scared!!! Greg turned his head a screamed at us to be quite. He was obviously scared too! anyway, the car did keep going, but when we were on the bridge, the radio went to fuzz, and it was real load too! We all screamed, and the car almost crached into the side of the bridge! Very freaky!! Needles to say, we got home, and I haven’t been back since…Although, now I knda like too, once more, for old time sake!!!

I’ve been out there several times (lived in the area) and never once came across anything more than other people out trying to spook the gullible.

I am not sure what bridge you are all talking about. There is a bridge on Pool Rd. and that bridge is creepy. Supposedly someone was hung there and then buried under a tree nearby. I have been by Blood’s Point and it really isn’t scary and have seen no bridge. There is a house right next door. Do you really think that if it was haunted they would still live there? Don’t think so. I also heard there is supposed to be a witch or a warlock but have no idea where that is supposed to be. Please try to shed some light on the whole bridge thing. Thanks!

I don’t mean to burst anyone’s bubble, but several intersections of streets and railroads that supposedly have “guardian ghosts? that push you out of harm’s way have been debunked. First of all, the road leading to the tracks is usually on a downhill incline, but since the railroads sit higher it gives the illusion that you are going uphill. Second, the oil from your fingers and hand after shutting your trunk doesn’t get washed off by going through a car wash – you have to take a towel with soap and rub them off.

My advice – if you’re going to try to put baby powder on your trunk to see the prints, make sure you wipe off any residual prints of your own or anyone who has used your trunk first.

I do believe paranormal events can happen, but I think 9 times out of 10 there is a non-paranormal explanation for them.

My $.02
