Metro Detroit’s creepiest urban legends 

Sleeping Bear's Daughter on Belle Isle

Park near the bridge at Tanglewood Drive, turn your engine off, and honk your horn three times. If you're lucky, a lady wearing all white will appear, beckoning you to follow her.

Tennis Player in Indian Village

A man dressed in tennis attire holding a racket is said to be seen near Parker and Coe in the early mornings. He wanders dangerously close to cars, but then disappears in your headlights.

The Nain Rouge

A devilish red dwarf is said to be the harbinger of terrible events in the city of Detroit. Or perhaps he's an indigenous nature spirit, seeking acknowledgement to help Detroit flourish.

Luke the Spook on Romeo Plank Road

Dr. Lucas, who died in the 1800s when his buggy missed the bridge and overturned, is said to help guide travelers with the faint and wavering light that can be seen on dark nights.

Wildlife Sanctuary on Grosse Ile

A man was reportedly hanged from a tree in Grosse Ile's wooded wildlife sanctuary. Drive by and you can still see the branch, but you won't feel wanted there.
