Witch Road

Location:  Rosendale, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin

Correction:  The correct name of the road is "Callan Road."

The Reputed History:
  • Approximately 50-60 years ago, a witch lived in a house on Witch Road, just outside of Rosendale, and the road has remained haunted ever since her death.
  • The ghost of a little girl hides in the woods.

The Investigation:  

We located Callan "Witch" Road and visited the site.


The Reputed Phenomena:  
  • At night, certain parts of the road are unusually dark and cold.
  • After dark, the sound of trickling water can be heard near the road, though there no stream nearby.
  • The witch's dilapidated house can still be seen in the woods.
  • People have seen flashing lights at the end of the road.
  • White lights have been observed on the trees.
  • There is a tree on the side of the road that resembles the witch.
  • The ghost of a little girl has been seen hiding in the woods and peaking out from behind the trees.


The Investigation: 
  • We did locate the broken-down old house where the witch is supposed to have lived and found  that it had fallen into a state of utter disrepair.  Further investigation is needed to determine the ownership and history of the property. 
  • A small brook was spotted along the road which would account for the sound of trickling water.
  • We spoke with an eyewitness who reported seeing mysterious lights on the road.
  • With a little imagination any number of the old trees along the road could be interpreted as resembling the traditional Halloween witch image.
