Gravity Hill

Location:  Shullsburg, LaFayette County, Wisconsin

Directions:   Near White's Hill, just South of Rennick Road, on County Truck U, South of Shullsburg, in LaFayette County, Wisconsin.


The Reputed Phenomena:  

Although there is a ghost story that attempts to explain the phenomenon at Joe Road in Stockbridge, we have not uncovered any legends concerning the "Gravity Hill."  It's just offered as a "gee whiz" kind of thing with no story behind it.  If you stop your car at the right spot on the road and put it into neutral it will appear to magically roll uphill. 


The Investigation: 

It's just a strange optical illusion.  Checking the road with a level, we found that it was actually slanted downhill when it appeared to be uphill.
