Haunchyville- The Miniscule Marauders of Muskego

Do you know the legend of Haunchyville near Muskego, Wisconsin?

Near the end of Mystic Drive is supposedly a barn where a farmer hung himself. Underneath the body were many child-sized footprints all around. In the barn was a sign, scrawled in his own blood saying "The Haunchies made me do it."

Whether it is a group of vengeful circus dwarves or a debauched town of Wizard of Oz's munchkins, little people have been the object of paranormal fascination for thousands of years. From leprechauns to the Lollipop Guild, join Jeff and Mike (who's actually been there!) as they head into Haunchyville to learn the truth behind the legend.

Also, Mike's band Sunspot even recorded a song about the place, click here to watch the video.
