Village of the Little People

94 posts in this topic

This is not a paranormal mystery just an oddity and my personal story about it.

Back in about 1983 an aquaintance was telling my freind and I about a strange

village full of little people he found with his buddy while looking for a place to party.

He said there were strange miniature houses occupied by tiny people and told us

how to get there, he also warned us they did not like visitors on the private road

and were semi-hostile. Without giving the exact location it is just below the late

Bob Hope's house on the hill between Cathedral City and Palm Springs, CA.

So one night we decide to see for ourselves and headed up the dirt road which

finally ended in a culdesac where there were about 6 tiny houses that looked like

they were out of a fairy tale, sticks and cobblestone and such. I actually recognized

these houses from an episode of Night Gallery. A couple little people came out of

the houses and appeared very irritated so we sped off but came back a while later.

This time they were waiting for us and had set a trap at the bottleneck by staging a

hay wagon next to it in the road. When we arrived the little people came swarming

out and running towards the hay wagon when a giant over 7 feet tall crawled out of

one of the doors on his hands and knees and also ran to the wagon and they were

all grabbing it and pushing and pulling it to try and block us in but we were a little

too quick and slipped by just in time. These people were dressed like characters in

Lord of the Rings, the houses were very similar, it was just so surreal, I will never

forget "The Village of the Little People."

:lol: ..aawww! but i think he's telling the truth! i wouldn't be surprised if a group of 'little people' went off to build their own little village somewhere to be alone and secluded from everyone else, they usually are quite hostile because they think they'd be disrespected and stared at by everyone else. i personally had a bad experience with a 'little person' when i was younger...some can just be a little unwarrantly aggressive :unsure:

No, see, I actually believe in these sort of things. As a matter of fact, he had me going for awhile. The 7 foot giant coming out of the miniature house, however, threw me off, and made it to where it no longer had ANY credibility. And a story like that can't afford to lose any credibility. :lol:

I've heard these stories before. It's a secret little community of midgets, somewhere in the woods, usually near a bridge or a dead end. The midgets are always hostile to normal people, and often shoot at them with shotguns(Don't ask me how a midget shoots a shotgun.).

And it's a load of bull.

Sorry Mighty,

It's just not the same without pix. Next time you go to visit them, take pix!

I want to see the little people.

The ending made me laugh. I expected something afterwards, like "And we all learned a valuable lesson" or "And I was never the same". If you're ever going to relate a personal experience that people may find questionable in the first place, this was not the way to do it.

I looked pretty hard online, I couldn't find any other stories or legends even similar to this except some crazy guy building a house for the voices in his head, which I felt was worth linking.

If I were 3' tall, and I and all my 3' friends moved into a block of tiny houses, the first thing I would do is throw a costume party and invite Shaquille O'Neill. And I would make sure he brought the hay wagon.

Dude, were they orange? Did they sing? Maybe you ran into a village of laid-off Oompa Loompas! That would explain why they were so hostile.

Because that is some high quality, expensive ****.

Man, that sounds like one hell of a trip you went on. And I don't mean roadtrip, I mean acid trip.
