We didn't encounter anything freaky, though... no KKK thugs, no
Satanists, no handprints on the truck... nothing scary like that (the scariest thing was
trying to avoid being run over by the RNs barreling up & down the road in their pickup
trucks!) Then again, we were there during daylight hours (traffic was quite heavy on the
road, even) I can only imagine that it's tons scarier at night.
Middletown, NJ tells us, "I have lived in middletown basically my
whole life. and i have heard many many stories about whipporwill. Ive
have been on it maybe 50 times, it can be very strange when you are the
only one on it. however many people go down it all the time. recently
they have made an attempt to basically pave the road but it doesnt make
it any better. if you are going to attempt to drive on this road i would
say tou should head to the road from chapel hill road. when you enter
from chapel hill you can go from whipporwill, then to copper road.
copper road is a better whipporwill that acctually has a road called
road x that connects to it. towards the end of the road is something
called \"cry baby bridge.\" once off the road there is the chapel hill
cemetry, the home of dancing jesus. out of everything in this area the
dancing jesus is a must see, it is in the middle of the cemetry and when
you flash its lights then turn them off the statue will dance. it is
worth a trip but is not the scarriest place on this site. enjoy your
Marianne writes, "You might be interested in this: In
your pictures of Whippoorwill Road you have a picture of a stone entrance place. If you
cross the stream and follow the dirt road, you will come to the remains of a gatekeepers
cottage. Continue on and you will see the remains of a great estate "Auld
House," walk to the left and you will see the marble inground pool and the overhead
wisteria supports. "Auld House" burned down in either the early 70's or late
60's. My husband and I used to go there all of the time. The estate was owned by the
Haskell Family who have another estate next door."
And K writes, "Just finished reading all of the stories
about Whipporwill. Some mighty scary stuff. I live on the farm that borders Whipporwill
Valley Rd and Cooper Rd, so I know first hand some of the crazy legends that surround this
place. However, I do know some of it is true. I think I may be one of the only people who
has an actual photo (UNRETOUCHED) of the wall of faces. The story behind the picture is
interesting but too long to type now. Also, as for the crazy man/farmer that shows up in
almost all the stories, he is the caretaker of the property (Woodland Farms) and he is a
NUT. So beware of him, most of all, if you come down here to investigate the stories. I
really enjoyed your site..."
Do you have any background information or stories to tell about an spooky
to purchase one of these, or any of my other photos...?
