Weary Road

The most realistic story about Weary Road of Evansville Wisconsin involves teenagers “car surfing”, not slowing down for a curve in time and being killed when they were ejected off the vehicle into a steep ditch or the creepy treeline. Another involves more teens playing chicken on one of the longer stretches of road (pictured) by driving at each other at speed with the lights off, and wrecking head on when they misjudge the length of road. It’s pretty popular today for younger generations to repeat this, though doing some research I haven’t found any evidence of car wrecks. There have been reports of phantom motorcycles, cars and trains (Chicago-Northwestern tracks cross the north portion of road.), dark figures and imps passing in front of or behind vehicles traveling the road late at night, green glowing near the bridge, screams and inhuman sounds, scratches showing up on bodies, if you stop your car on the bridge the car won’t start back up again (this happened to me personally in my brand new car full of people, 2008), sightings of a ghostly girl in the woods, “Mr. Weary” making appearances on the road at night (supposedly after visiting 3 or more times).

  1. Some friends and I went up there and parked our car before the Bridge, we all got out and walked. You could tell that some local kids would try to mess with us as they would drive by, however there was one car that was particularly creepy was really dark and dark tinted window just following us around. We did hear moans of some sort, which later may have been a cow in the distance. The only things I found to be real was we did go into the corn fields as we were scared of the cars that were messing with us, and I cut my hand. I saw the blood and felt it and once i got out of the corn field and shined some light on it, there was no cut and no blood. Like it just disappeared! I cannot explain this for the life of me and will forever confuse me. As we were leaving there is a farm house near buy and saw a man just standing there not moving and it was late at night in the dark. Not sure what that was all about but was definitely creepy.

  2. My best friend and I went driving to see if the road was really haunted. When we turned onto Weary road and drove just a short distance,her headlights started flashing on and off. There was no way she was doing it because we were in a old Ford Mustang, and you literally had to pull on a lever to turn the headlights on and off. I would have seen her pulling it, but she wasn’t. Her dad is a mechanic so we asked him to look at the headlights, to see if there was a short circuiting problem. He looked them over and there was absolutely nothing wrong with the headlights. It never happened again.

  3. I live in Evansville and grew up here. The story about the boy who died car surfing is true since I knew him and went to school with his sister.

    The road isn’t as creepy anymore since they cut most of the trees down years ago. My friends and I went out there once back in 1996 (we were 16 at the time) and the only thing that really happened was after we parked the car on the bridge and began walking down the road, a cat jumped out at us. Other than that we thought we might had seen car lights coming down the road, but that was it. I haven’t really been out there since, but if you’re looking to just get yourself scared, it should do the trick, despite no longer having the trees that gave it its eerie vibe.
