This Strange Phenomenon In A Connecticut Town Is Too Weird For Words

Gravity is a fact of life. (Remember high school Physics?) What goes up must come down — and levitation is just a magic trick. Or at least that’s what we’ve been taught. Well, if you’ve ever been to Gravity Hill in Connecticut, you might question whether gravity really is a fact of life. It will have you scratching your head, for sure. Gravity Hill is a strange phenomenon in Connecticut – one you truly have to see to believe.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Check out this young woman as she excitedly narrates the phenomenon of her friend’s truck rolling up Gravity Hill.

So now that you’ve seen it in action, what do you think? Do you think Gravity Hill in Connecticut is an illusion… or something more sinister? Let us know in the comments below! And if you’re into unusual happenings, did you know that a natural phenomenon occurs in Connecticut during the winter? Here’s the story behind frost quakes.

Gravity Hill In Connecticut

January 30, 2021

What are the creepiest cemeteries in Connecticut?

Cemeteries are traditionally tranquil places where we can connect with those we love in their final resting place. However, some cemeteries do just the opposite, leaving visitors with an unsettling feeling. Mountain Grove Cemetery in Bridgeport was built on the spot of a former Native village, and is said to be haunted by the villagers to this day. If you visit you may even hear the voice of a small child crying out for his mom. Among those who have found their final rest at Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven is Mary Hart. Said to be a witch, Mary’s tomb reads “The people shall be troubled at midnight and pass away.” If you don’t believe that the grave, and the cemetery, are haunted, Mary will curse you (or so goes the legend). Don’t blame us when you have nightmares!

Are there any urban legends in Connecticut?

In addition to Gravity Hill in Connecticut, the state is full of other urban legends — some that might even keep us up at night. Have you caught sight of, for example, the Winsted Wildman, Connecticut’s version of Bigfoot? He’s been seen all over the state, after all. Hannah Cranna is probably better known as the Wicked Witch of Monroe, a cruel woman who put a spell on her husband. That spell, so the legend goes, caused him to walk off of a cliff. Even in death, Hannah caused great angst, if you believe the legend. She also cast a spell on herself so that, upon her death, her body burst into flames. You can visit her grave… if you dare.

What are the most unique things to do in Connecticut?

Unique doesn’t necessarily mean weird — but let’s talk weird, shall we? We certainly can find quite a few weird things to do in Connecticut, and why not? It’s fun. Most of us probably associate the name P.T. Barnum with the circus. But did you know you can visit the Barnum Museum in Bridgeport, which boasts thousands of Barnum’s artifacts? Tour the Old Newgate Prison in East Granby – which was a copper mine then a prison then a copper mine. What’s really weird? You’ll get to see how prisoners escaped from the prison. The Façade House in Hartford and The Witches Dungeon in Plainville are also worthy of a visit.
