Ominously nicknamed "Devil's Gate," the story behind this property's entrance in Libertyville, Illinois, has been passed down through generations because of an awful event that supposedly occurred at the site a few decades ago.

This legend has been told so many times that the details often vary, but every version of this story has one very important thing in common: it all started when a maniac climbed over the gate.

Legend has it that a school once sat behind this infamous entryway.

One day, someone scaled the fence and stepped onto the property.

The man kidnapped several little girls while they were walking to class.

He beheaded each of the girls and placed their heads on the spikes that still sit atop Devil's Gate to this day.

It is said that their ghostly heads reappear on the spikes when the moon is full.

At some point, the school must have closed, but in the 1960s, the land was home to a summer camp. The legend of Devil's Gate kept children safely in their bunks. Only abandoned buildings sit on the property today.
