Stockbridge, Calumet County, Wisconsin
Erroneously listed as "Joe's Road" on a number of web
in the early 1900's the state wanted to build a
road over an old Indian burial ground.
"Indian Joe," the cemetery groundskeeper, would not
permit it, so
they ran him over and built the road over him.
- There is no evidence of a
former Indian burial ground or of such a murder.
- There is only one house on Joe
Road, and it used to be owned by a Joe
Ekhart, but he was not a Native American.
you drive down the road which is uphill both ways
and stop at the bottom and put your car in neutral,
"Indian Joe" will push your vehicle uphill to the
east end of the road to get you off the old Indian
if you put flour or any powder on the back of your
car, you will see the handprints and fingerprints
of "Indian Joe," proving that he pushed
your car uphill.
- This is just a
strange optical illusion. We checked the road with a
level and found that it is actually slanted downhill even
though it appears to be uphill. Topographical maps of
the area indicate that it is actually a decline of about 70 feet
from the east end of the road to the west end.
- The logical
explanation for the prints on the back of the vehicle is
that the prints were left there when people used their hands
to slam shut their trunk, hatchback, tailgate, etc.
According to the police, latent fingerprints can be lifted
from some objects years after they were made. Even
washing the vehicle doesn't always succeed in removing the
