5 Creepy Facts About Wisconsin

1. The legend behind the Bermuda Triangle has perplexed people for decades. But few realize there’s an area near Wisconsin with an equally chilling reputation. The lesser-known Lake Michigan Triangle spans from Manitowoc, Wisconsin to Ludington, Michigan and south to Benton Harbor. Since 1891, it’s accounted for numerous mysterious events .

2. A phantom hitchhiker is said to haunt a section of Highway 12 in Baraboo. According to past sightings, he appears as if he’s from the 1960s, donning faded jeans and a green army jacket.

3. In the days leading up to November 17, 1974, strange lights were seen in the sky above Antigo, Wisconsin. On November 17th, a woman working at a local bar had a strange run-in with a peculiar patron who she believed to be an alien. The bartender, Mrs. H, claimed the man “bounced” on his way in. She also noted his “creepy white teeth.” According to Mrs. H, he was adamant that the lights in the sky were cause by a meteor – something he asserted several times before leaving the bar and vanishing into the night.

4. The movie “The Bye Bye Man” is about three college students, who, through the use of a Ouija board, unleash a demonic serial killer. Though the plot seems like a complete work of fiction, it’s not. The supernatural story is actually based on a series of events that took place in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.

5. Unbeknownst to many, the Wisconsin Dells is home to the Museum of Historic Torture Devices. Just as the name implies, the offbeat museum features dozens of exhibits on torture tools and other gruesome devices used throughout history.
