The Axeman's Bridge is located near Old Post Road in Crete, Illinois. As the story goes there was a family that lived near the bridge in the 60s. The "Axeman" lived there with his wife, mother-in-law, and his children. They were always arguing until one night he went into a blind rage.
He went to the bridge with his mother-in-law and daughter and butchered them with an axe. Then he returned to the house and murdered the rest of his family, leaving the bodies on the lawn. He burned the house down and it was reported that he died in the flames - even though his remains were never located.
The bridge is still there but it is in bad shape and not safe to use.
