Primrose road, South Bend
« on: March 07, 2007, 07:50:31 PM »
So a girlfriend of mine knows I am into the paranormal and on a brake from studing for mid-terms, she took me out to Primrose road. She had experienced some weird stuff when she was a teenager out there in the graveyard near the road. As we drove down Primrose, there was a section of the road that my girlfriend said "I think were there". Well we were looking for the graveyard. We both got a bit spooked by this section of the road.  We never found the graveyard. We got frustrated and went home. Then I found this

Haven't posted in a long while.

For those interested in knowing what Primrose Rd actually looks like, including insight into it's mystery there is lots of good stuff on another forum thread I found.

If you ever go there to investigate, don't let the demons follow you home.

I live in the Bend...where is this place?  Are you really not supposed to go alone?

It's really not a good idea to go alone regardless. One of the obvious reasons being safety. The reasons for a ghosthunter esp. not going alone is you need to have back up for your evidence. If more than one person gets the same EVP or picture it is less likely to be dismissed as a fake.

Does anyone from South Bend know any history about Primrose Rd or the land owners besides just the bizarre and probably false stories perpetuated on websites listing haunted locations?

With snow on the ground its easier to see into the woods, along the road and mud lake at night.

Has anybody been out to Primrose recently? Ive been out there more times then I can count. Ive seen a few things that made me do a double take but nothing too crazy. Has anybody else seen anything a little more substantial?

We (Michiana Chapter) were out there in June. We met with some odd cars full of people and a police officer but nothing too exciting. We had more activity at the cemetery.

Did you guys investigate from the road or did you investigate into the woods? I ask because ive done both and ive never really gotten any good evidence. I too have also encountered some interesting people but most people are pretty nice. What kind of stuff did you get at the cemetery? Any plans on going back out there?

A group of friends and I (about 9 of us)  Went out there about 5 or 6 years ago.  Acouple of people got out and the other driver and I went to the end of the road.  We waited a few minutes and then headed back to pick up the other people.  The other car went in front of me and there were no other cars anywhere around.  We got to the spot where the others got out, and all of the sudden I saw a pair of headlights coming up behind me fast.  The other poeple jumped in the car and we took off.  As soon as we reached the paved part of the road, the other vehicle broke off pursuit and turned into the woods.  Now it had just snowed, and when we went back to look where it turned in there were no tire tracks anywhere on either side of that road.  The little mounds that the snowplows make on the sides weren't even disturbed.  It was very weird.

Ya know, I lived in South Bend for most of my life and didn't hear about this story until I moved away. How weird is that? I may head up that way during Christmas break when I'm visiting family to investigate this place.
Got a ghost story or photos about IUB? Let me know!

Has anyone been out there lately? Iam thinking about doing a little mapping of the woods on both sides of the road. I especially interested in the area that open up into a little clearing. The last time I was back there, I found a small little camp fire circle. I also saw footprints in the mud. It was pretty weird.

My friends and I went out there a few weeks ago.  Dind't really get anything on primrose, but at Adams Street Cemetary, we did get a hit on my K2 and we heard a very creepy laugh come out of the woods.  We got that on the Digital recorder and the camcorder.

Has anybody heard of any of the background for either Primrose or the Adams street Cemetery? Ive tried to find some info at the local library but came away with nothing. Any suggestions as to where else I could look?

So I went out to Primrose on Halloween. I did nothing but observe and write down everything that I saw. I tried to take a scientific mindset when I went out there. With that in mind I made sure that I was completely hidden and nobody would see me. By remaining hidden I thought this was the best way to get an accurate account what I would see.

The only thing I saw was people going out there to get scared. I saw people walking down the road singing the Bingo song, I saw car after car driving real slow hoping to see something. I saw the people in the woods who had the glow sticks going. (People after my own heart) I saw group after group of young high school age guys walking down the road, doing their best not to act scared. As though walking down Primrose on Halloween is some type of rite of passage. I was out there for a good while and I didn't see anything.

This has not been my first time out there on Halloween and as I put in a previous post I have seen an unexplainable blue light in the woods. While this year I saw it again and I figured out that it is coming from a nearby farm. I was able to use my GPS and plot a line that runs right into a farm. I was glad to be able to figure this out.

I cannot say this enough. PRIMROSE IS NOT HAUNTED. It is a pure urban myth that has been passed down from generation to generation. Ive even gone as far as to do a public records search for that area. Nothing. Nobody has been killed out there. There have been no police reports of animals killed. There has been nothing out there. It is all a PURE MYTHS. Its like a game of telephone that children play in grade school, the story is always different at the end as compared to the beginning. Ive talked to a lot of people about the rumors that surround Primrose and its always " It happened to my sisters, cousin friend" but then if you go and ask that person they will say they heard it from somebody else. I guess all urban legends get started this way.

I can say that Primrose is a beautiful area, both day and night. It has lots of deers, squirrels and other wildlife. But I also know that PRIMROSE IS NOT HAUNTED. This is just urban legends at their best.

I totally forgot about this post!
The Michiana chapter went out to Primrose Rd to investigate last year. We found no evidence of anything paranormal while were there. We did meet up with a few cars of teenagers. One car that stopped gave us stories of a fridge that was dropped off in the woods which was found to have a dead child in it. A story about a heartbeat being felt under there car and a few other stories I do not remember. We only investigated the road though due to the fact that we only had permission to be on the road. We did not have permission to be in the woods.
People really think it is creepy that there is a clearing before and after that section of the road. There is a reason for this. If you look at the area on google earth, there are swamps in that area. Who wants to build on swamps! I have also done some research and can not find anyone who has died in that area. Also there is said to be indian burial grounds near there but according to a map I have the grounds are actually miles away. I am glad you were able to debunk the lights. I really think Primrose road is all stories. Another urban legand.
