Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

The railroad tracks off 72nd St.

Plover, Wisconsin

One day, a young mother lost her two sons near these railroad tracks. After desperately attempting to locate them, she became so saddened that she laid her body on the railroad tracks and waited to be killed. A moment before the train came, the boys jumped out the bushes where they were hiding just in time to witness their mother being killed. The boys were later admitted to a mental institution and can be seen walking along the tracks every July as restless spirits.

First of all, if the kids didn’t die on the tracks; how are they spirits floating around every July. And if the DID die on the tracks, how can dead people get admitted into a mental institution? Whoever made this bogus story up needs to get a proofreader before finalizing it to a website!!!!!!!

It doesn’t make sense. The boys were dead already then they get put into an institution????

A friend of mine went there at night once and saw this bright ball of light.

To Brent, you’ve lived in Stevens Point for 20 years and you haven’t heard of this story? That’s too bad; what would be fun is if Trivia would make that place, and all the other haunted places Trivia stones some time. 🙂

I agree, the story sounds awful fishy to me. come on, why would the mother lay in front of the train ? If a mother was looking for her children, she would not think to died instead.
I think it some folklore to scare kids or whatever. They should had done it better, then what been going around.

So i was looking at this place and me and a couple of friends wanted to go to it…is it worth it or no? We have been to a lot of “haunted” places. like Paradise RD in Jefferson but nothing happened there either.

OK, Has anyone considered the possibility that this might have happened a long, long time ago, and the boys didn’t die on the tracks, they witnessed her death and were traumatized by that so they were put into a mental institution. I’m guessing their spirits started visiting the site after they died. The story doesn’t give us enough information as to when this happened and the full details of what happened. And it’s safe to assume that if it did happen within the last few decades everyone would have surely heard of it, and of course women nowdays would think enough to call 911 and have a huge search done, etc. But if this happened like in the 1800s that would explain why many people haven’t ever heard of it, and it could explain why she didn’t call the police. I guess I feel that we need to know more about the story before assuming that it isn’t real. (And if it’s not real, it does make for good entertainment for the thrill seekers and those who just like a good ghost story.)

i wish i could find some real ghosts its so odd because here in iowa there is a haunted cemetary that there is a “devils chair” that on the first full moon of the month moves to the front of the cemetary at midnight and where it was the day before it is moved somewhere else. at night you can see an orange orb above the chair. by the way the chair is cemented to the ground.

I once heard a ghost story, years ago, about this man who had been butchered by train-jumping hobos, and returned from the grave for revenge. Supposedly, just reading this story will set you up for a visit, as follows: wherever he is right now, he can sense you thinking of him, and he will begin to move in your direction, wherever that might be. If and when you forget him, he will lose the trail, and go back to roaming endlessly. However, i don’t remember what happens if he finds you…and i realize it’s an urban legend as much as any other…but does anyone know the name of this story or where it came from?

Heather says:

Did anyone happen to think that the mother wasn’t mentally sound? What I would like to know is what time period this occurred in. It would explain why the mother wasn’t diagnosed if she had a mental illness and why she wouildn’t go to the police because they may not have been nearby.

if you want to go to a real haunted house, go to Summer Winds in norther WI, or to the cream colored brick house in Cold Springs WI, a village of about 12 houses, a bar, and a church, the brick house is haunted, I lived there with my parents, grandparents, brothers and sister. Take my word for it.

I grew up in this nice little town and this is the first I have heard about this haunted place. I’m surprised this site did not list ‘Boyscout Lane’ or ‘Calvin’s Blood.’ The only things I find scary are the loud redneck trucks and the amazingly cheap beer prices at the bars downtown.

I lived in a house in Hebron, WI. It was built in the 1800’s. The first week I lived there my couch was pushed across the room into a closet. Plus I was laying in bed one afternoon and a man’s voice came and said my name right in my ear. Yes I was freaked out, you better believe it. I would have my grand daughter there and she would talk to a little girl named Sarah, and another little boy who came into my house would talk to Adam. They kids can talk to ghost, so u decided!!!! I BELIEVE IN IT!!!!!!

I lived in the Plover area for 20 years and didn’t know there was 72nd street???

Lynette says:

October 4, 2011, 8:21 pm

Ok, I don’t usually share this because, well, who would believe me? I was in the process of moving into an over 100 year old home in Rosholt, with my husband and kids. We were cleaning and renovating before we moved in and one day I was meeting my husband at the house and I walked into the livingroom with a basket of stuff and I seen through the doorway into the diningroom, my husband, or so I thought, walking into the laundry room that was off the diningroom. I said something to him about it being hot in there and don’t any of the windows open? And he didn’t answere me, so I put my basket down and walked through the diningroom and into the laundry room with the intent of saying something to the fact that he could atleast answere me…and he wasn’t there. All of a sudden I heard him hammering upstairs. The only way upstairs was through the livingroom, where I had come from. The laundry room had no exit. The man I seen was dressed in work clothes and a work hat, which my husband wore daily. It was daylight and I had looked right at this man and talked to him.
I think he followed me from our prior home, because I had seen this person before and mistook him for my husband on that occasion. But he was harmless and never caused any problems.

This one sounds like an urban legend. There are paranormal research societies in Kenosha, Wausau, and I believe Delavan, WI. Perhaps those of you who have been to this location,and are convinced that something is really happening there, should contact one of these research groups to have it confirmed.The spirit world is most definitely real, more so than the physical world that will one day pass away. It has been my experience that people that have no belief in God, that have delved or at least dabbled in the occult, or have used drugs – particularly hallucinogenics- are more susceptible to seeing or encountering the spirit world. By no means are these occurrences “all in their heads”. They are simply more open to the spirit world, but perhaps dangerously so. Be cautious pursuing these things. At the risk of sounding preachy, the Bible says that Satan comes as an angel of light. He is the father of lies. We are commanded to test the spirits to see if they are of God. The only way you can do that is by the leading of the Holy Spirit. You can only have the Holy Spirit guide your life by genuine faith in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ – repenting of your sin and unbelief, and accepting Him as your Lord and Savior. To seek the paranormal, or try to fight against it on your own, is a recipe for spiritual disaster. To comment on another topic: people that attempt or succeed to take their own life are in deep psychological distress. They are truly not in their right mind and can not be held accountable for their actions. The person who said all such persons deserve hell has never personally been clinically depressed. You are ignorant at best and lack compassion.

Aragayle says:

October 26, 2011, 12:48 pm

Beware also of the hucksters that want your money in exchange for a miracle! What a crock! Beware! Those people do NOT serve Jesus Christ! Those kind were around back in Jesus’ day and he drove them out of the temple with a whip!

You should delete all of the above comments. They are poorly-edited, and enormously rude. I especially condemn the Christian element among the commenters, judging people as they like to do–despite their nonexistent Jesus telling them right there in the Bible NOT to judge, lest they be judged, themselves.

Moe says:

I don’t know the story involving the mother and her sons,I can only tell you what my wife and I encountered driving home from Plover one July night 3 years ago. We were driving towards Rapids with the brights on, there was no fog and the weather was perfect. As we neared the 72nd street area a hooded cloaked figure popped up in the middle of the road. I remember braking and swerving to the left lane. The figure didn’t run or turn towards the vehicle, it just glided across the right lane. My wife who watched the figure said the cloak never moved as it would if someone was walking nor did she notice any shoes.We were both 52 at the time and we still aren’t sure what we saw that night and we’ve been down that road hundreds of times and have never encountered it again.
