Valley Road

Location:  Menasha, Winnebago County, Wisconsin


The Reputed History:  

About 100 years ago a young groom was killed on the way to his wedding when his horse-drawn carriage was in an accident on Valley Road in Menasha, and he was thrown into a tree and strangled to death by his own bow tie.


The Investigation: 

We have not been able to verify this story.


The Reputed Phenomena:  

On certain nights you can see an apparition of the groom hanging from a tree.


The Investigation: 

Valley Road east of Hwy 47 is technically within the Appleton city limits, so we focused on the western stretch of the road which is within Menasha.  The only tree that overhangs the road is the one on the north side of the road directly across from Saint John's Cemetery.  We are assuming that this is where the apparition has allegedly been seen.
