This Strange Phenomenon In An Alabama Town Is Too Weird For Words

What goes up must always come down, right? Well, not always! For example, there’s a strange phenomenon in Sylacauga, Alabama that has everyone baffled. This phenomenon is the mysterious Gravity Hill, Sylacauga’s most well-known attraction.

Gravity Hill is located west of Alabama US 280, on Gravity Hill Road. When a driver arrives at the stop sign and puts their vehicle in neutral, it’s mysteriously pulled uphill. So, what on earth could be the cause behind this strange occurrence?

Many people believe Gravity Hill is an optical illusion, while others believe something else is behind this strange phenomenon. According to local folklore, Gravity Hill is the site of a Native American burial ground. Numerous individuals believe the reason why vehicles roll uphill is because the ghosts of these Native Americans are trying to push trespassers off their land. Could this mystery spot really be haunted? This phenomenon may be strange, but it’s still quite extraordinary, nonetheless.
