Many rumors abound, witnesses have seen a phantom train, imps in the trees, strange lights, and a green glow towards the end of the road that is said to be the ghost of Old Man Weary. The story is that he favored entertaining local children and the parents accused him of being a pedophile. Although that was never proven, they got together and burned his house down. It is said that not only was he innocent, but that several children were present when the parents set fire to the house and that they were killed in the resulting blaze, along with Weary. The house no longer exists, but out of tradition visitors park by the space in the trees where his driveway supposedly was. They report to have seen phantom cars & a phantom motorcycle that followed them to a righthand turn and then disappeared.

I have been here many times and I am absolutly fascinated with it, At the same time, I am terrified of it. Whatever is there does not seem friendly. Could it have something to do with the satanic cult that is rumored to have had preformed rituals on that road?

The young man(Matt F.) that died in 1994 car surfing on this road was from Evansville, he "fell" from the car about 500-1500ft east of the bridge right by the clearing in the trees. Speaking to some people who were there they said initially it was like he was pushed, but they didn't really speak of it later.

I've been to weary road, and my car started after I stopped on the bridge, but it had difficulty turning over. Also, my radio was on and for the first few second after my car was on I heard violent static coming through the speakers. Also I was tailed by a phantom car (it was kind of far away) and it disappeared, even though there was no place to turn off the road. My friends and I all saw a hellhound type thing near the bridge, as well. I only caught it in my headlights for a moment but I saw it growl at us and then bound into the woods.

All right.  I've been to Weary Road a couple of time now.  Had video cameras and digital cameras and everything.  I gotta say, it's a creepy area, but nothing's happened.  I stopped my car on the bridge, and restarted it with no problem.  Alleged imps jumping across the road were determined to be frogs.  Weird thing, though... my friends and I took two cars, and were connected via CB radio.  My friend accidentally changed channels, but the other person in my car and I heard SOMETHING over the radio while we were on different channels.

dude ive been on this road 13 times, i even stayed over night on that little drive way thing right next to the bridge. that road is not haunted. me and all my friends went there one night bored as hell and i brought a huge log out there and me and all my buddys had a huge bond fire next to the bridge and nothing happened. i know the people who spray painted all that crap and if you go down there holloween night and sit on the bridge and get out i know a couple of kids that are gonna hide under the bridge and scare people. just so u know and no one keeps believing this rumor. dont get me wrong it is freaky out there at night but there isn't anything unusual about that road. i worked for a farmer  by that road and i had to hall corn down that road a million times and havint seen nothing so dont waste the gas or time to try to see something. and a little heads up dont mess with and of the farmers land or they will freak, and cops like to come down there alot. and that red light is from a cell phone tour like 10 miles away. i dont mean to ruin everybodys fun im just trying to tell u in advanced. i like to go out there though because i like to shine for deer. so u might see me out there.

I have been on weary road many times and live not far from it. When i turned off my car and tried to start it again it wouldnt start, my windows wouldnt roll down. I had been with a few of my guy friends and we walked down the road while my car sat on the bridge.I walked down the road no big deal.... until i looked uo and seen a green glowing light at the end of the road. We quickly ran back to my car and locked all the doors. We were all a little shook up. I then tryed to turn on my car again. It started! As i drove off i looked in the review mirrow and saw the ghost of Old Man Weary. I will not go back to Weary road again.

To the guy that thinks there is nothing haunted about the burning of the house of kids and weary, and weary rd. I visited there for the first time last night. According to the legend, most people do not encounter anything unusual their first time. The 3rd visit has been reported that you see some horrible things if your not careful where you walk out to. Experienced the phantom car. Our car got attacked by 3 black dogs and they didn't sound like normal dogs. Something was off about them. We had to swirve off the road while trying to leave the place because coming from the opposite direction, a truck gave us no room to pass so we had to get off the road or it would have crashed head on to is. But when we swirved off the road thats when these black dogs or whatever hellhounds surrounded the car while we were still driving slowly. My friend has epilepsy and had a seizure moments after that. When she regained conciousness she explained that she took her pill for it and it should not have happened..

I've been there a few times at several different hours of the night and nothing has ever happened. It's definetely a scary area but i've never seen anything unusual.

Ok, I've been to Weary Rd numerous times. Me and my friends plan to go there this Halloween for a little fun. But nothing freaky has ever happened, other then a veichle that disappeared when there are no other sides roads to turn on. And what the hell are they talking about...hellhound? What is that? And it has been proven that Old Man Weary was a pedophile, and still remains on that road to this day.

Stop it there are no such things as ghosts. My backyard is the lake view sanitorium supposed haunted woods. I have lived here since 2002 and have never seen or heard anything unusual or scary. I've been in those woods a gazzilion times day and night. Sorry ghost lovers they just don't exist.

The place talked about on Weary Rd isn't in Stoughton.  It is one mile south of Evansville.  More information about it is in the Weird Wisconsin book that was published in 2005.
