Heading home from Detroit on 75, the expressway suddenly became a parking lot, and I hate sitting in traffic, so I got off and headed north on M24. I somehow ended up going down Blood Road near Metamora, I remember reading about it being haunted in the book Weird Michigan. Searching Google I found several rumors and legends of witchcraft and satanic worship, it is said that during the witch trials people migrated to the area in the 1600’s, there is also a story about a man that murdered his wife and the body was dumped into the swamp and at night the swamp turns red. Urban legend has I that if you drive down the road at night the branches of the trees fall behind you and the road will turn red. But the most logical thing I found was someone said the road has a lot of clay in it, and when it rains the road turns red, and the puddles look like blood. Of course, everything I found was on the internets, so it has to be true. Besides who doesn’t love a good urban myth, and the road is named Blood Road.
