Real Haunted House

Gravity Hill

Moorsville, Indiana

About sixty years ago, an elderly woman was making her way up this hill when her car ran out of gas. The woman got out of her car and began pushing it up the hill. She was not very strong, however, and eventually, the car rolled backwards on top of her. As she lie there, injured, an oncoming truck ran over and killed the woman. Today, if one puts his car in neutral at the bottom of the hill, the old woman will push it to the top.

Okay, so I live in Mooresville and I have been to gravity hill. But where we go on gravity hill, there isn’t any train tracks. Gravity Hill is located on Keller Hill Road, just in case anyone was wondering.

Gravity Hills are optical illusions created when there is an obstructed horizon so our eyes can’t really use a reference point to tell whether the slope is an incline or a decline, gravity hills are created when there is obviously this obstruction of the horizon and the surrounding land masses and land features make it appear as though the slope is inclining while in reality it really is a decline. There are hundreds of these type of hills around the world and thousands of supernatural stories that have come of age relating to these hills. So it really isn’t an old lady doing community service from beyond the grave ๐Ÿ˜‰

Gravity hill is just west of the intersection of 42 and Keller Hill Rd. It doesn’t work as good as it did years ago before they re-paved it.

well go to wikipiedia and type in gravity hill. what appears to be the bottom of the hill is actually the top (as in Mary (ex Mooresvillian)’s post). the surrounding landscape blocks the horizon from view therefore you cant use it to judge whats level or not.

hello everyone. As far as how to get to Gravity Hill. Drive through Mooresville on what is called 144 turns into 42 after the other side of Mooresville you will cross a bridge. Take the next right. That is Keller Hill Road. Drive down Keller hill road till you find a BIG hill you will know it when you get there. Best thing to do is turn around and go back down the hill. When you get to the bottom of the hill there is a little hill right after the big hill. Put your car in what seems to be the “valley” between these two hills and put it in neutral. Your car will roll up the small hill. I have actually been pushed up the hill and after that coasted all the way back to 42. As far as the flour on your car and hand prints I have never tried that. I have been there many times and next time I go I might try the flour. If anyone needs more directions please feel free to e-mail me. Thanks

Bring baby powder when you go. Another story about this would be that kids in a bus reck and past away there. if you stop on the tracks and turn your car off you will be pusted up the hill and when you get up it you can see little hand prints on your trunk.

HAHAHA it does work! its awesome!
but i try not to let the stories go to my head! it could be anything! and dont you think that maybe the football players, children or old lady whatever it is….. would get tired of pushing people up hill all day??

Patricia Anderson says:

March 8, 2010, 3:05 pm

but if u think about it its not about gettin tired about pushing them…they are there for ever and they dont want other people to have the same fate that they did. If u think about it maybe thats wat draws their frantic spirits is the person that is or may be in danger.

There is the same story in Princeton Kentucky. Except the woman was a young lady, and her car didn’t run out of gas she was assulted. But the effects are the same, if you put your car in neutral she will push you up the hill and sometimes if you look in your rearview mirror you might catch a glimpse of her.

This is why people as a whole are so miserable. If you try to be happy, someone inevitably has to come smash everything you find good and exciting in the world. You naysayers can’t just say, “oh that’s not exactly what I believe but everyone is entitled to their own opinion,” instead of tearing apart other peoples’ beliefs? Jeez. I believe in ghost and things of the sort because that was my up-bringing. Therefore, NO ONE is going to be able to make me believe that my family was wrong and that I am wrong. But I do not tear apart people that don’t believe. They have every right to look at things logically and scientifically and try to explain things. And others have the right to believe in ghosts and have some excitement in life. Lighten up world.

At the risk of being a buzzkill, I need to remind everyone that many of the more popular ‘gravity hills’ are monitored by the police – they may ticket you for obstructing traffic or whatever. Know Before You Go!

Ok this is truly hilarious ok I’m a life long resident of mooresville and gravity hill is one of the only attractions in our town but who’s really interested in a simple gravitational abnormality so a groupe of the kids at the high school (me included) made up this story and spread it around and later posted on a couple gohst blogs I had no idea it became so widely bealeaved. Also there were no train tracks in the area at any point in the towns history if your looking for a real haunt in the town try the town antique market (some creepy sh*t goes down in the basement) or john dillingers home ( not hauted just cool)

Stokley says:

May 25, 2011, 3:54 pm

Yes this story is a good one..but not true in that sense…just watch fact or faked it tell how it is an illusion and you are actually rolling down hill.

The unknown says:

August 20, 2011, 6:27 pm

Yes, I agree with stokley. I seen the show and its amazing how it tricks u and makes it look like u rolling up hill. Btw luv that show!

Amber (Current Resident of Mooresville) says:

Ok this is so not true. But if you like getting scared go to Jappa. It resides in the Tri-country area just north of moorseville. (Take the road that Sonic sits on in Camby west and follow it until it T’s then make a right, then take the first road on left after you cross the bridge [goes over I-79]) Here resides your nice little Satanist. If you go to the Church/Cemetary you will be chased out. There is a house that sits backwards also known as the 666 house, it has no windows or doors (in the front) but on certain days of the year you can see people lined up on the street in single file, not speaking, just walking into the house. Have fun! Not liable for anything that happens lol! I’ve been chased and my cousin, who lived on that road I mentioned(after you go over the bridge) was chased for while riding his fourwheeler. Enjoy! =^.^=

This is true.. But the stories are not. who knows what happened.. i all i can say is something happen there to cause your car to be PUSHED up a HILL and STAY THERE..

I have been here to. I was 13 and i tlked my mom and dad into getting their friends together and going to alot of supposed haunted places. there was 45 of them we went to. about 15 of them were complete fakes. but this one was compleatly true. i was in the back of the van and we put it in nutral and it rolled backwards… but this sudden jurk hit and the van began going up hill. we got to the top and waited for what felt like 30 more seconds and we heard this loud cry/ sceaming sound from like a few feet away. following that was like a noise that sounded like someone had hit this huge pot hole. it was crazy. i got out and found hand prints on the van as well. no one else has heard the screaming as far as i know.. but sit at the top of the hill for eh.. about 30 seconds then youll hear it.

Shantel says:

December 19, 2011, 12:16 pm

I have been here to. if you sit at the top of the hill for about 30 seconds… you can hear this eerie scream from a few feet away. I went when i was 13 with my parents and a group of their friends to like 45 places. some were fake. this one was as real as it got.

fred says:

October 13, 2012, 12:45 am

I grew up there,it works and it’s not an illusion. We tried it one night and after it pulled the car I relieved myself and the pee rolled downhill/

Gravity hillFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search “Magnetic Hill” redirects here. For other uses, see Magnetic Hill (disambiguation).

Magnetic Hill in Orroroo, South AustraliaA gravity hill, also known as a magnetic hill and sometimes a mystery hill, a mystery spot, or a gravity road, is a place where the layout of the surrounding land produces the optical illusion that a very slight downhill slope appears to be an uphill slope. Thus, a car left out of gear will appear to be rolling uphill against gravity.[1] There are hundreds of recognised gravity hills around the world.

The slope of gravity hills is an optical illusion, although sites are often accompanied by claims that magnetic or even supernatural forces are at work. The most important factor contributing to the illusion is a completely or mostly obstructed horizon; without a horizon, judging the slope of a surface is difficult as a reliable reference is missing. Objects one would normally assume to be more or less perpendicular to the ground (such as trees) may actually be leaning, offsetting the visual reference.[2]

The illusion is similar to the Ames room, in which balls can also appear to roll against gravity.

The opposite phenomenon รข?? an uphill road that appears flat รข?? is known in bicycle racing as a “false flat.”

Ur all wrong there’s not even railroad tracks nor did a bus crash its gravity at the top of the hill it starts up then dips down goes back up then its the big hill I got park in the dip

Gravity Hill is an optical illusion, nothing supernatural about it, but it does feel as if you are rolling “uphill”. From RT 14 in Sterling, take Main Street north until it intersects with Snake Meadow Rd. At this point, make a U-turn, and proceed to the 35 MPH Speed Limit sign on the right. Once at the speed limit sign, inch forward to the first telephone. At this point, put your vehicle in neutral. and let mother nature do the rest. Admittedly, it does appear that your vehicle is slanted slightly uphill but your vehicle rolls forward.

yes gravity hill is very real.. I went last night around 3 or so in the morning. we turned the car off and put it in N we put the cars back tire in this pot hole and with in the 5 seconds we turned the car off is started moving. we could hear the old lady’s foot steps.. we went up hill then down hill going 5 mph then we picked up speed to 20mph and went over a bridge and a lil ways after the bridge we stopped infront of the old old lady’s gate way that lead us to her house. it a long trail. but we also started the car and we stopped in this gravel road a few feet from where we stopped and all of a sudden a few rocks hit the car. then we all got out of the car and looked at the trunk and there was a lady hand print but then there was a kids hand print too.. we aren’t to sure about the kid but the lady pushing the car only had one hand print !
