Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House


Boone Terre, Missouri

Many believers claim that this road is just plain evil. At a restaurant named 4-wind, Satanism is practiced, and people/ghosts have been seen to vanish into thin air. On a bridge named Black Tram, it is said that is a person parks their car at midnight and yells “Come and get me” three times, a car will appear and attempt to drive you off the road. There is also a ghostly couple who tries to flag down approaching cars, but when they come near, the couple vanishes. Going one direction on this road, a person may notice a side-road, Old Black Well Rd., but if they approach the road from the opposite direction, it will mysteriously be gone.

My girlfriend lives in Blackwell. I have been down there every weekend. We travel Blackwell Road every Friday and Saturday night. She lives on Cole Road, next to the train tracks. One weekend, about 3 weeks ago, the river flooded the intersection of EE and Cole Road. I have to park on the other side of the bridge, walk across the bridge and walk the train tracks about a mile and a half to her house. What better opportunity for ghosts and goblins to make their appearance. I didn’t hear any screams, feel any chills, see any orbs, or any bodies, fires, or ghost cars. Never have seen or heard anything like the the whole time I have been spending my weekends there. All just a bunch of stories and made up hype.

Me and a couple friends went up there not too long ago and we parked on the bridge and flashed our lights 3 times and yelled out the window come get me 3 times and we waited for 3 min and the water started gettin louder and we got freaked so we left the 4th min and right before we got to the train tracks a train flew right infront of us and idk if those train tracks are used anymore or what but when we went across the tracks it was stopped and we went across and on the other side of the tracks theres a dead end we pulled in there and backed out as soon as we did a white truck with no symbols or anything on it came around the curve doin atleast 80 mph and we took off and when we crossed the tracks again the train was backing. The truck chased us all the way out to E hwy… If somebody could tell me if the train tracks on the other side of the bridge are still used my email is Thanks!

Not to burst anyones bubble, but that bridge Tram bridge out in Blackwell, has been destroyed for sometime now two years i believe a new bridge was in it place, If you guys want a real scare. Park out at the west end of the bridge and walk south to were it used to be, you’ll get a real chill out of it………..

I have lived just outside of Farmington (south of Bonne Terre) and have never heard of Blackwell, much less it being haunted. I stumbled across the website and began reading the comments which interested me. I plan on road tripping up to Blackwell when I get back from deployment in late August. Any one who is interested in going is more than welcome. Just shoot me an email at Thanks for the stories!

ok so im not too sure about the whole car chase thing or whatever, but let me tell ya, when you go out there take a digital camera and just snap away, you will see some pretty crazy things, one night half our pictures wouldnt even show up, most of the ones that did had an unexplainable yellow orb in random spots, there is a house somewhere out there coudnt find it during the day that we have photographed multiple times with actual ghosts in front of it, to top this off on our way in the same night me and someone else had heard this terrible screeching noise almost like an eagle screaming. Every foggy spot we drove through there was the smell of cooking, 1 a.m. btw. what finally scared us off the road was what happened at the tracks, this seemed like a normal train until our daytime investigation showed us we could see a good bit down the tracks, but anyway we stopped and nothing, as soon as we had gotten onto the tracks a train out of nowhere so i hauled it and stopped on there otherside…nothing, no train or noise whatsoever, it was time to turn around. about 2 miles from E I start freezing and feeling sick, i lean forward and look up there is a huge white bird (4 or 5 ft wingspan) flying “mythotically” above us for approximately a minute…The next day I researched birds to find an answer, and I am still puzzled, I personally will never go back at night, and that was just the road not the cemetaries. Also during the day me and a friend spotted a MASSIVE dog running through multiple fields by us, by massive it was clearly visible in grass that was approximately 3 ft or so…Blackwell is for the brave and, after blackwell I have lost most of my bravery. Old st. louis road is worth checking out as well

I got led to Blackwell MO through a year long investigation we did on a property in Jefferson County MO. One thing I did find out is that back in the early 1800 when they abolished slavery one farmer in Blackwell refused to release his slaves. He hung them from all the trees on the edge of the property. So I don’t know about satanism but I know there are a lot of p***** off spirits and rightly so. Studying the supernatural for 12 years our photos have been on George Noory so I am serious about the paranormal. There are ghosts and spirits so no matter what your parents told you they are real. One thing I found out years ago is if it’s haunted it’s haunted day and night. Yes we have apparitions in broad daylight and at night. One picture was taken out of our car passing a location and there in one snapshot a 100 year old residual haunt caught on a camera. The clothes were dated by a vintage clothes collector. So being scared is fun when you hunt for it, but when it hunts you its a different story. Be safe. Unseen Paranormal

Please send me some paranormal pictures from Blackwell. I’s love to see them. I know the man whose family established the town. His family was wooden tombstones and they keep the cemetery kept nicely. So please be careful. If your over 21 and want to investigate let me know.

I have a few incidents that really occurred in Blackwell,my kids were w me, and we all experienced the strangest night of our lives out there. There was an old car, from the 50’s that was at a stop sign. Inside it was four people. The two women had beehive hairdos and the men were dressed like greasers. One man and woman got out of the car and asked my husband for directions. My husband gave them directions and they drove forward. The car suddenly vanished into thin air. No kidding, we were terrified. On another occassion, we were driving home around eleven at night, and with no warning a passenger train went passing by us with no warning whatsoever. There are no crossing lights or gate, we were within seconds of being hit. This may seem like it wouldnt be scary in the haunted sense, but the pasenger car was only about three links long- and it almost seemed to disappear before we ever saw it.

To everyone regarding the whole ghost nonsense in Blackwell. There are no ghosts only ghost stories. It is darker in Blackwell than most other places becuase it is a rural area with NO street lights at all. No homes directly on the roads so again no light source.

As far as the tracks and bridge. Yes the tracks are used daily by trains in both directions at all times during the day and night.

In regards to people being followed by mysterious vanishing cars that would be the people who there there who are tired of all the people breaking into supposed haunted houses and trespassing all of the time. There is a lot of theft going on and becuase the nearest police respons eis over 30 miniutes away they have to look out for their own property and each other. Please just leave us alone. How would you like it if the people of Blackwell started ghost rumors about your neighborhood and people started showing up at your house to break in and take pictures.

I need ten people that want to investigate a haunted location. This place is in Illinois. Date to be announced. This will be a controlled “experiment” if you will. Cost will be $25.00 per person. (Cost going to owner for night staff) You will be responsibile for your own equipment and for viewing. Someone will be the leader and bring the review to the client. Since you will have no preconceived ideas we want to see if the spirits will be as or more active with inexperienced people as they are experienced investigators. If you think you have what it takes to be in a paranormal group or want to lead one here is an opportunity. You will be under the watchful eye of Unseen Paranormal Research And Investigations. The spirits in this location seem to be more active to new individuals as we note this pattern we are bringing new individuals in.

I posted 3 years ago, and I’m gonna post one last time. Tales of Blackwell have been greatly exaggerated. First, the Four Winds restaurant. Miloud, the owner, is Moroccan. He is not a Satanist, but a really nice man. The reason he had you sit specifically in one area and asked you questions is because that’s his culture. The reason all of you had to eat was because he makes it on the spot, and doesn’t want to make one meal. He was the most gracious host and the food was delicious. Next, the “Black Tram” was torn down years ago, so it’s bunk. The new bridge has nothing wrong with it. The “Nun House”, found right next to old bridge on the western bank, is just an abandoned house. I never could find the Blackwell graveyard, due to it being private property and gated off. The Moon cemetary was a great place to go… creepily hidden down a road, but again, nothing extravagant. The “Pentagrams” are not… it’s for Easter Seals and Freemasons. There is a freemason graveyard west of Blackwell that actually did have an odd happening, but other than that, nothing. What it boils down to is this; the scariest thing you will find out there are pissed off locals that might not take kindly to you snooping around whatever meth labs might be brewing out in the middle of nowhere. I’ve been out this way over 12 times since 2007. Went to local libraries to refute any claims of raped nuns, devil worshipping cults, and sadistic judges. As with all ghost stories, there is only a hint of truth in an explosion of a lie. I’ll be happy to head out there with anyone wanting to go anytime. I do like the area, and there are a couple places where things have gone on that I can’t explain. Want to know more, find me on Facebook. That is my FB addy, so do not mail me, just use it to find me.

Once again I need to update people about Blackwell. The old supposed huanted bridge has been torn down and replaced many years ago. The Four Winds Restaurant is closed. The abandoned house by the bridge has been renovated an people live in it now, so please leave them alone. Many of the old sites no longer exist and others have been renovated and people live there now. So this Halloween try some place else for your fun-you’ll be glad you didn’t waste your time.

Me and some of my “interest” group went out to blackwell one night, right after the tracks when approaching from E there is a road that goes left, we turned down that road and continued down to what appeared to be a church, we parked the car in the parking lot(a large van) there was 8 of us and we started our “ceremony.” We are a group that are free spirited and enjoy orgys so we began our business. It was a pretty scary place not gonna lie.

people here will tell you that Blackwell is not haunted and to stay away,,iv lived here for 13 years and let me tell you it is,,,they dont want people poking around because it stirs things up and we have to live here,,iv never seen a scary movie that can compare to the reality of Blackwell and my place i would sell in a heart beat if i dident owe so much,, we have had 3 different paranormal groups here and all walked away happy and a little scared, its not the grave yards or the old houses that are haunted,,but the woods and fields,, its not wise to look for them here,,some say they are demons, some say ghosts or familiar spirits,,never the less,,its intelligent haunting s and they know your just might walk away damaged or at least a little bit ptsd. dont go looking for the devil,, you just might find it here and the repercussions can be devastating.

There is a kind of hidden house right after the bridge to the left when you pass the train tracks. The entrance is in the right corner. I went here with two of my friends, and as we were approaching the house, we saw what seemed like wild dogs chasing another dog, then we heard dogs howling in every direction. Out of nowhere, the howling just stopped, (we’re still not in the house, just walking around it looking at animal bones all around the house) then we hear a dog crying, similar to what you would hear in a dog fight, then what sounded like the dog dying…like painfully. We searched all around, following the sounds of the cries for about ten minutes until it finally stopped. We for some crazy reason still decided to go into the house. I was the first to enter the house. As soon as I walked into the old, decroded house, the howling from all of the other dogs came back, but louder. We still didn’t leave. We walked through the living room, the kitchen, then to a back room where the stairs were directly to our right. Me and one of my other friends heard what seemed like growling above us. We, of course, still did not take the hint, so kept going. My friend who heard the growling with me began going up the stairs with me behind him telling him we needed to go. As he looked back to say something to us then looked back to the top of the stairs, what he described was a dog-like creature with missing oarches of hair looking down at him. Finally, we ran all the way back to the car and obviously have not gone back to that house. Not a paranormal story about Blackwell, but the scariest thing that happened to me there including being chased, watched through a window at 2 in the morning, and having a man run up to our car (we drove off before he could get close enough to us for anything, and it was also night so we saw no details). But yeah…the scariest.

I haven’t live in Missouri since 1991. I graduated graduated from SEMO in 1988. I am going to be traveling down in that area over Thanksgiving Weekend to meet some friends in Poplar Bluff. Just might have to check this out. I knew some fun guys from the general area that we are speaking of and they stated in the Towers Complex @ SEMO. I was even asked to go 4 wheeling at the shad (? spelling) mounds? Its been awhile for me so I am probably getting this a little wrongâ?¦.. my email is if anyone wants to contact me with additional information for me to check out.

You all are the crazy ones. I have lived on upper Blackwell rd my entire life. There is nothing haunted about this place. We would appreciate if people stayed off our properties. We are not just visiting the area we live here. The old bridge was unsafe and torn down. We love to fish off the new bridge. The farmer that owns the property next to the bridge is a very nice man but hates when people tresspass and tears his fields up, as this is his hayfields. Please be courteous to all of us you wouldn’t like if people was always trespassing on your property.
