Real Haunted House

Bunny Man Bridge

Fairfax Station, Virginia

During the 1800s, a man went off to hunt for food. Upon return to his home, however, he discovered the mutilated bodies of his wife and child. Immediately, he summoned the sheriff. Since the bodies were so horribly mutilated and there were no other suspects, the husband was sent to a mental institution. Maintaining his innocence, the man vowed revenge. After escaping from the institution, the man took up residence near a bridge. Since the only clothes he owned were those made from rabbits’ skin, he soon became known as the “Bunny Man.” As time passed, children started playing near and around the Bunny Man. When several children came up missing, the authorities were notified. When they reached the bridge, officials saw body parts of the children hanging from trees; they also saw the Bunny Man being run over by a train. Today it is said that one may see body parts hanging from the trees and will hear the Bunny Man laughing.

There is a shack close to the bridge, you can get there by driving up a 45 degree hill off a side road near it. Two friends of mine went there, and found the walls covered in freshly skinned animals. I thought the guys who told me were trying to scare me, until a friend and i went with them… and they ended up being entirely too scared to go back. I could tell they really did see something up there. There is also an old hospital very close to where that is. I cant remember how to get there. It was off a long empty road, one side covered in forest, the other side an open field. But close to the middle of that stretch, there is a TINY break in the forest side where you can drive an SUV. After the bunnyman cabin, we decided to go there instead, figuring we wouldnt get out the car if we were too scared. We drove through the trees for awhile, and unbelievably there stood a four or more story hospital. Completely surrounded by a forest. It looked white with splats of something dark all over it. It was extremely cold and extremely scary. All four of us, including the guys, wanted nothing more than to get the hell out of there. And thats exactly what we did. But Im curious as to what it was and if anybody else knows about it. Maybe its the mental institution that the bunnyman escaped from?

Been there…done that, and will NEVER do it again! It was after mid night that my friends and I had this great idea to go check it out since we live only a few minutes away. It had been raining and thunder storming all day. But by the time we pulled up to the “driveway” of the shack, the rain stopped. We walked up the path to the shack to find it was covered in animal skin and the foulest stench you will ever smell. Shortly after we arrived at the top of the hill were the shack is located, we all heard something in the woods…so we took off running and screaming down the path, back to the car. As we took off driving down the street we came to the bridge and as I proceeded to drive as fast as I could…my car turned off and coasted to a stop right under the bridge and wouldn’t start. Just then a big roar of thunder and lightening came down and lit up the bridge as we were sitting under it. When this happened all we saw were shadows of body parts hanging from the bridge above us and heard someone laughing. Just then my car started, BY ITSELF!!! I peeled out and will NEVER return.

That story was completely told wrong. From what was told to me, they didn’t know why he was in the mental institution. They were going to shut the institution down, so they were moving the inmates to Lorton prison. The bus had an accident going up the hill near the bridge and 3 men escaped. 2 were found and the other one was never found. When children came up missing authorities found kids hanging from trees and the top of the bridge. They eventually found rabbit carcasses all over the place, naming him the bunny man.
I will tell you that I lived about 10 minutes from there. A couple of times when my friend and I would go out riding in the late afternoon, through the bridge, on the other side a man would be standing there about 50 yards or so out in the woods. Strange things have happened there, with witnesses to it.. If you like to be scared to death.. go.. otherwise go to the general store..

Me and some of my friends went there last night…what an ordeal. Got directions off the internet turns out there is two Colchester Rds the one off pope head drive is the right one. Anyways we get there at 2 and the tunnel wasnt very scary and some kids had rubbed faked blood all over the walls. The area was pretty well lit up and wasnt scary at all. We did the whole saying bunnyman 3 times and turned the car off. Nothing happend….disapointed. If you want a good scare go to harpers ferry west virginia and go up to grave yard at the top of the hill….much better then the bridge,.

I want to see something haunted! I am very skeptical of ghosts because I have never seen one. If I ever see one I think I will faint or have a heart attack! I thought that there was a haunted mansion in Roanoke? Has anybody heard about that?

That sounds awesome! I would love to go there but I live in LA. I have had an experience with ghost though. I’ve wanted to see another ever since that time even though it scared me really bad. I was only 7 at the time.

OKAY PEOPLE! PAY ATTENTION! I live about 20 minutes away from this bridge, and have gone there BY MYSELF to investigate the story. I was there for about two hours, in the dark, and NOTHING HAPPENED! The story is not true, and everyone who claims to have had encounters with a spirit is a FAKE. I brought my video camera with me, just in case, and there is nothing at all wierd that happened. It’s just a silly myth. AND I HAVE THE TAPE TO PROVE IT!!

I have been there. If you go to the last house on the right, down the driveway, you will comw to a dirt road. Follow the dirt road as far as your car will allow, and you can see through the trees some sort of buildinng. Im not sure what builing it is. I have heard about the sanitaruim, but have never seen it and dont even know how to find it. Id like to see it though.

I have been there too. I saw this shck with a lot of dead animals in it, and then me and my brother ran FASt. There was this field and then a forest so we ran in the car and drove off to the clearing. the path was small, just big enough for my bro’s car to get thru. We got thru and we saw this big hospital that looked like it was three stories or so. It was darkish and had white splotches, kinda like a cow almost. We got the heck outta there and saw a mna walking towards it.

Let me tell you The Cops down at bunny mans bridge are AWFUL. the people that live back there(if you ever happen to see them……RUN…dont talk to them they are crazy.

Oh by the way…did any of you notice when you went there that behind the tracks a man named “dier” lives there….and in the front of his mailbox he has a Cross made from metal facing the bridge and it hasnt moved since 6 years ago when i first went to Bunny Mans Bridge.

The only thing we have seen up there is a massively HUGE hand print on the back window that spanned from about 3/4 down the back window to the top and it was Fingers and all no smudges like someone dragged there hand to make it look big or anything….Also a Ghost train runs on top of the bridge(this is fun scared the HELL out of me and my friends) the weird thing is….You dont hear it coming……You only see it when its on top of you basically……Oh dont get stuck down there with a crappy car either….Ours cut off on us under the bridge after the lights SURGED got super bright and then just cut off……So

Beware Bunny Mans BRIDGE is REAL….I dont know about the light **** on halloween i was there 2 years ago and nothing happened….
