HAUNTED MICHIGAN: Hatchet Man Road Re-visited
It’s time to re-visit Hatchet Man Road once again. This dirt road is a patch of 28th Ave, between M-40 south of Gobles and 9th street near Kalamazoo; crossing over Campbell Creek. And it’s one of the most-rumored, talked about & legendary haunted roads in all of Michigan.
The legend states that in the 1980’s, a man built a bomb shelter on his property in order to protect his family. He was already paranoid and to make things worse, he coaxed his family to move out of the home and into the shelter. Being cooped up with the fear of impending world-wide doom, he grabbed a hatchet and wiped out his entire family.
People who purposely travel down that road at night have had strange things happen to them and their vehicles. Certain visitors have claimed: cars idle at high speeds, vehicles stall for no reason near the creek, a cd adapter flew out of the dashboard, flashes of orange, gold & red lights, human shadows crossing the road & peeking from behind trees, ghostly white shadows that appear & disappear in the woods, automobiles that appear & disappear, headlights that go nowhere, moans and more.
One person wrote that bright headlights chased him down the road; he pulled into a driveway to turn around and the pursuing vehicle had vanished.
Things on this patch of road happen – obviously – mostly at night but some say it’s eerie enough just being there alone in the daytime. In fact, one guy managed to video-capture three guys dressed as ‘creepy clowns’ that were waiting for motorists by the side of Hatchet Man Road. (SEE THE PHOTOS IN THE GALLERY ABOVE!)
Wanna test it for yourself?
Once again, it’s the part of 28th Street that crosses over Campbell Creek in a dense woodsy area south of Gobles and west of Kalamazoo. The photo gallery above shows you exactly where it is.
Take video if you can…
