Real Haunted House

Cry Baby Woods

Muncie, Indiana

Way on back in the 1800′s a young women was running away from slave hunters. She had her young baby with her. The baby kept crying and she drowned the baby in a creek so he wouldn’t give her away. Today if you go back into the woods at night you can hear and sometimes see the little baby crying and looking for his mother.

Thats all true Thomas. I used to live in winamac in. I moved to kansas city kansas. I have been there. It scared the **** out of me. My cousin tried taking pics of it. When we had the film developed, they were all just big orbs. That was all you could see, just big orbs. That was crazy.

Cry Baby bridge is real. I have been there and seen it for myself, the bridge, the church and the graveyard is real. Except now it is hard to get back to the graveyard because its gotten so popular. cops patrol it all the time.

Everyone has a cry baby bridge or woods—due to more than one urban legend, I suppose.

So yeah, my team of Ghost Hunters is going to check this place out. We will post EVP’s and Pictures on our website, which is currently being built.

A few of us went to crybaby bridge. There is a new bridge there now. I whispered to my friend “Let’s scare them and say we heard something” but before we did, we heard muffled moans and something walking in the water below. It is on 950 and Thomas Road and just north of 236…a little south east of Pendleton, south of Anderson. If you mapquest Nashville, it is the one in Hancock County, between that and Milners Corner.
Just try to be quiet or you will hear nothing but a loud dog barking.

Cry Baby Woods is not in Muncie but in Hobart behind the cemetery.

There are many “cry baby bridges” I have heard of. I can only speak for the Pendleton-Markelville one. 99.9% of this stuff is just ****, but this bridge actually lived up to its hype. Okie-pinoke is another one. Not just Okie-pinoke but the entire Mississinewa area. I’m telling ya’…there is weirdness on soooooooo many levels there…ask me……Happy Hunting!

It just goes to show you some of the people they have living in Indiana. Typical of someone like “Anderson’s finest” to kill it’s own child to save its own self. Hopefully she was captured and hung!

yeah. alot of my friends go and they call it “PODUNK” supposidly you sit on the bridge and turn your car off.. and the baby is crying and will try and make its way to the car.. but if it reaches it, it sucks the energy out of the car and it will not start!! its scary. but ive never been myself.

Podunk, the real podunk, is farther south. It is northwest of a town called chetwynd. It is supposedly very scary but nobody can check it out because people will shoot at you and stuff and that ruins a good time. Indiana’s motto “shoot at that which you don’t understand”

I live in Oklahoma and my brother and I went to cry baby bridge. We both went under the bridge and stood there for a while. After about five minutes we heard the baby crying. I never knew I could run that fast. That was five years ago and we decided to make a tradition of it.
