Delevan - Elms road - As the legend goes there was a man that used to Live on elms road he was a butcher and was the butcher for that town one night he had went crazy and chopped his family up one by one in the local butcher, Later that night he hand hung him self in the barn in the woods... it has been stated and many others who were non believers till now that if you go to were the old butcher shop was you will hear frantic screaming and loud laughing, It was also stated that he had hung him self in his barn which was located in the woods if you are going down the street toward delevan turn left onto Elms road then go straight for about 7 miles till you come to a gravel road on the left side and turn left onto the road go all the way down into the woods area then keep straight to right about were the road turns to field and make sure everyone you are with is looking straight ahead or not at all, then every one you are with turn there head to the right and you will see the man with the rope around his neck standing there then he will disappear...You can also go to wear the barn is located and still see the rope hanging there WARNING: Please for your own safety don't go alone!!
Thats the story about it but i have no earthly idea where the road is? do any of you
Crazy! I was concerned that the road was not long enought to fit the 7 mile part of the story but I just noticed that there is a segment of the road that actually runs parallel to itself. I can't say that I have ever seen a road do that before?
omw is it possible for you to put up the link you found, So we could take a look at what you have. I work construction and for some reason think i've been by this way . But i'm not sure. After a while all these street names run together for me. LOL
Thank's omw!!! I found 2 Elm Ridge rds. Like you said they run side by side. I wonder the reasons for that. I didn't see east or west on any of them either. But the short rd could be close to 7 miles long.
Their seem's to be a farm on the corner of sweet Rd. And Elm ridge Rd. I wonder if that person would know anything about the story?
No problem, did you look at the satellite photo though, like I said above the shorter road showing on the map isn't really there. What do you think is up with that, it's rather odd?
Yah i see what your saying now!! Maybe the short road was the origional that dates back to the story. It looks like their are trees where the rd. Used to be. It may have been an old dirt rd back then. When they made the Subdivision, They may have moved the rd. over to another joining rd and Named it Elm Ridge rd. Back then. Back then it was easy to do stuff like that. Now you would need the DNR to ok it . Believe it or not. Just incase their is a animal life which includes bug's too. I have done work for builders who have run into that!! I wonder if the Delavan library would have any info on the Rd???
