Andy's Market Hill - Scott Park

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Andy's Market Hill - Scott Park

At the popular sledding spot called Andy’s Market Hill, aka Dead Man’s Hill in Scott Park, legend has it that a little boy named Dameon was sledding in 1998 when he was killed accidentally by an archer who shot him in the eye. Now, Dameon’s sledding apparition is seen here only by children, although many witnesses claim to have heard his moans or felt a strange force push them, causing their sled to run into things.

  1. I grew up in that neighborhood. Nothing of the sort has happened there. When I was a young girl, we used to hear stories about a child who had slid under the fence and been gutted…not shot by an archer. Besides…the archery range isn’t pointing anywhere NEAR where the sledding is.

    • Yes, just because the range isn’t near that doesn’t mean that thats not true, I went sledding there and i wasn’t aiming for going near the archery, but the hill just guides you.

    • I used to go down those mudslides in about 1993. Absolutely amazing as an 7-8 year old!

      Sledding, you would absolutely fly down this hill. A kid launched off a jump, broke his femur and that’s when they planted trees on the upper half.

      Honestly kid, it at bail. Best sledding hill in Apple valley!

  2. As someone who’s grown up very nearby from this location, I can confidently tell you that nothing paranormal has ever occurred at this location. I’ve sled here at night countless amounts of times and not once have I ever seen or felt the presence of an apparition. As far as I can tell it’s just a ghost story that’s stuck around.

  3. I live across the street from this hill and have been going there sledding since I was a child. The only time I ever felt a truly uncomfortable vibe was when I was in the woods next to it. One time my friends and I found a dead cat that had a bunch of rope around its neck like it was hung from a tree.

  4. Lived in the area since 1980. Never heard of this haunting before. Rebecca is right, the archery area doesn’t even face the sledding hill. But Andy’s (now just a random convenience store) did make the most hauntingly delicious subs!
