Monkey Mountain is located on gravel roads outside of Weeping Water. It is on private property and the owner is touchy about having visitors. There is a giant circular cement slab in the midst of some trees and junk laying around everywhere.
Some locals claim that paratroopers used to land at Monkey Mountain. Other locals claim that a circus train derailed on the nearby railroad tracks and a bunch of animals (monkeys especially) got loose in the area and went to live in the trees on Monkey Mountain. The owner of the property believes the area has been so named because kids “monkey around” there.
Another nearby haunt is Witch’s Bridge which is also near Weeping Water, Nebraska. Ask locals for directions to the bridge where supposedly a witch hung herself.
Interestingly, there is another haunted location in Athens, Texas where tales of a circus train wreck are told. Monkey Bridge in Athens is supposedly a place where monkeys also ran loose in the area. However, Athens, Texas has four other haunts (which are arranged in the shape of a pentagram) and a dark history suggesting satanic rituals as well. Check out Marlin, Texas as well where the Bell Bottom Bridge haunting is also related to a circus incident.
