Who doesn’t love a good scary story? Here in Minnesota, we’ve got more than a few to go around. But sometimes, you want to do more than hear the story. That’s when you find a place that you can really visit, like this spooky haunted street in Minnesota. Once you hear the story, you may be compelled to get in the car and go for a drive. But be warned: this place has a creepy history.
The street is called Timber Lake Road, located in central Minnesota near New London. The area is far from any major cities - about an hour west of St. Cloud - so you're in for a bit of a drive. In the daylight, that might not seem like such a big deal. It looks like any other country road in Minnesota.
But at night, things get a little scary. The road is located near the thick forests and wetlands of Sibley State Park. The landscape certainly looks like it would set the scene for a horror movie. As the story goes, a woman who lived in a house near the road one day came home to find her children murdered. Devastated, she hung herself, and her ghost has wandered the road searching for the murderer ever since.
Locals have reported strange sightings on the road for years. Shadows in the woods along Timber Lake Road may point to a supernatural force at work. There have also been reports of red eyes blinking at travelers from the darkness.
A gated cemetery stands along Timber Lake Road. This is where the woman and her children are said to be buried. Here, visitors have sighted ghostly children wandering the graves. You may also hear strange sounds. Dogs howling, a woman wailing, and otherworldly screaming have all been reported.
Or you may even seen the woman herself. Some describe her as red, others white. But many have seen her wandering the road. And if so many have witnessed her, she must be real, right? Still, many questions remain. What does the woman want? Does she mean any harm? There is only one way to find out: venture out to Timber Lake Road
