Hello, all... Just wondering if anyone here has any related experience, stories, sightings, or info about haunted sites in Oklahoma.  In particular, I have detailed and rich experiences with differing types of entites around Norman, Oklahoma City, Bartlesville, Tulsa, Stillwater, and some good second-hand information about hauntings in Talequah and Blackwell.

In particular, I was wondering if anyone had knowledge of so-called "Gravity Hill" or "The Crying Bridge" on the outskirts of Bartlesville.

Well you know I don't know for sure but I'll ask my husband. He's from Ponca City, OK and he has told me of stuff that has gone on in his house, he's a believer. I'll rack his memory and I also know someone in Chickaska, ok. I'll see what I can find out.  :)

thanks cajun, you're a helpful gentleman!

i had a great laugh at all those different "cry baby" bridges and "gravity hills"... lol!  ;D

on a serious note, i've investigated one location where one of the gravity hills is supposed to be outside bartlesville, ok ... which is strangely near railroad tracks and a rural supposed "cry baby" bridge.  a little research netted some other surprising and shameful info about that area...

long-time residents claim that the area of which i speak was actually the site of more than one grisly lynchings perpetrated by racist residents in the 1920's.  rumor has it that the ghosts of the murdered men and women wander the woods and farms that surround this secluded, almost dead-end road.  

i've investigated the bridge, the hill, the railroad tracks, and the length of the road and i've felt a presence there, but i'm not sure it's a mom and baby hanging out at the bridge!

O.G.

Well I was told about an area near me that is similar to gravity hill, and this was told to me by someone that I trust a great deal. He told me that this area is a level stretch of road and at certain times you can stop and shift to neutral and your vehicle will roll forward on its own. He stated to me that he never believed it before so he tried it one night and it worked.

The legend is that someone had broken down and was pushing a car out of the road and was hit and killed by another car, and now this ghost will push your car off the road to safety. Sounds familiar doesnt it.

I went to this place near the town of Livingston, Louisiana today. I found where the exact area was located. I stopped my truck and sure enough when I put it in neutral it started rolling forward on its own.

I got out and looked around and the roadway appeared to be very level. I took two gallon jugs of water and walked back to the area where I started and slowly poured the water on the road (asphalt surface). The water trickled down the road and pooled near my truck. I then stretched a string from before the area where the water was poured, (I fastened the string with a nail driven into the road) I pulled it tight near the bumper of my truck and attatched a string level to it to estimate the grade. I found that the area where my truck was parked at that moment was actually 27" lower than where it started. I rolled for approximately 72'.

The road actually has a down hill grade that is not visible to the naked eye. At least I can rest assured that this case is solved for now. And I forgot to mention that it was also reported that you would see hand prints in the dust on your vehicle, I found none and believe me my truck was very dusty.
