A guy who went to high school about twenty years ago says he remembers a lot of talk around school of a location in the woods near Fairmont known as the Seven Gates of Hell. Research online revealed that many states had these so-called passageways to the underworld, but I could find no reference to Fairmont's supposed location. Does anyone out there in Fairmont Topix Land remember something like this from their school days?
P.S.
Don't give me any B.S. about it being near a Lilac Bush.

That place was a nunery (place where ladies study to become nuns) at one time wasn't it? That would make sense. That let know if you make it to the "other side".

I remember running around various parts of Marion County in search of the seven gates. It was a lot of fun at 2 in the morning when I was 18 and bored with my bored friends. We went to some place in Colfax called Vinegar Hill. There was a cometary on top of the hill with a bull in the field you had to cross to get to it and an electric fence. Yes such fun but then again this was before the internet and the cool video games came out. AND yes way before caller ID so prank calling was still fun. But back to the Seven Gates...wasn't there supposed to be a blond haired, blue eyed virgin sacrificed on the full moon too? Oh the fun days before mortgages and car payments...but that was the only one we found...supposedly there is one in Mannington. So anyone know the other Five?

According to wvghosts.com , Vinegar Hill is the place where "Every 13 years on Halloween you can hear two boys screaming and hear a vinegar barrel hitting the lake; and the first person they see, they haunt for 13 years."
The only problem is: when is the point of reference to determine the 13th year? Is this year the 13th year?
Perhaps the person that the boys last saw will post on here, so we'll all know the next time that they are to appear...

I am one of the boys that screams. I am not screaming again until 2014. That is if there is a full moon and no rain during the day before. If it does rain the day before I will wait 1 year and try again. If it all works out I may even run around the streets of fairmont with a white sheet and yell spooky things for effect. Any other suggestions what I could do to be a good ghost let me know. thanks

The only true Seven Gates of Hell is in PA, there was an asylum that burnt down at the end of the road and there are 7 gates along that road. They say no one ever goes past the 7th gate and comes back. There is a place called Witch's Grave or Highland near Wadestown, WV if you are looking for some closer ghost hunting. You should be able to google it.

We do the same thing back where I'm from, Jersey burbs area. Growing up as kids we couldn't wait to get our hands on the newest "Weird NJ" magazine, still running, and in fact spawned a huge collection of novels for other states. 7 Gates Of Hell from what I know is in Centralia, outside of Allentown, and quite a distance from Philly and Scranton, I've never been but I here it's awesome. The mine caught on fire there and hasn't stopped burning for over 50 years, the town has been abandoned and I believe only a couple families live there now.

Me and my friend's use to go to place's like that when we would be out partying. The true story of the seven gates of Hell. A boy was riding his bike from clear up the head of the holler. He was about half way down and got hit by a car an killed, Now at a certain time of the night he ride's his bike down the holler and if you lay down in the road he will run over you and leave tire mark's on your clothes an for awhile you will be parlyzied an can't move. Me and my friend's done it. We did'nt lay down in the road. We saw something glowing and we heard tire's sliding on the dirt road. We all jumped in the car and the boy followed us to the main road and disappeared. We never ever went back. True, Yes very true story. There is seven of us that seen it. Where is the Gate we was at Greentown.
