I have a good friend who lives off of Willard St in Jamestown. When he was growing up (he's quite a bit older than I am) he always had really odd experiences with his bedroom closet. I know..sounds like the typical young kid's anxiety, but seriously. He would wake up and hear pounding on the closet. One night in the dead of summer, one of the hottest nights all summer actually, he was sleeping and said all of the sudden he woke up and his room was freezing cold. Then he heard someone whisper his name into his ear like they were standing right next to him. Now he's almost 40 and has a daughter. One day she was

in his old room and asked him who "that bad man" was. He didn't

know what she was talking about and when he asked her she said "That bad man in your closet daddy". This really freaked h

im out because he hadn't had any experience with the closet sin
ce he was a teenager. Finally he found out from a neighbor that

before they lived there there were two twin daughters who live

d in that house with their grandparents. The grandfather used t\

o take the girls into the closet and abuse and rape them. It wasn't until the second twin passed away ( in her 70's/80's) a couple years ago that the hauntings in the closet stopped. I'm sure it was her terrible memories of that place that kept the spirit of her grandfather there haunting the closet.
Just this past year my friends father passed away, and now he is seeing the spirit of his father in the house. It's really crazy.
are you speaking about troy??

thanks for posting that!!! i may have missed something, but is the land the cemetery was on the only remaining part of the village?

have you ever been to the abandoned town (or maybe i should say, what remains of it) in allegheny state park? i think it is called irishtown. from what i have read, it was discovered within the last few years and some foundations remain. i plan on checking it out hopefully before it starts to snow!

Hey gang, I just want to clarify some things about the "satanic cave".
Behind the Hidden Valley park in Kiantone, there was a spiritualist community that lived there a while back, during the 1800's. He was led to the area by spirits that told him he would find two magnetic springs, that when pooled together, would create healing water.
So he starts a settlement up and calls it Harmonia. It was a pretty interesting place. They build round houses by the logic that evil spirits hide in corners. They planted orchards and weaved baskets. They even had their own currency in the works.
Anyways, the tunnel in question! The tunnel was dug by the Harmonians in an attempt to locate a vast underground ocean. At this ocean they would finally come in contact with what they believed to be lizard people who were our ancestors. As well as treasure and knowledge.
They got about 200 feet in maybe? I can't remember.
Eventually though the local farmers thought the Harmonians were evil satan worshipers and kicked them out of the town and burned down everything.
You can still see the tunnel entrance to this day as well as some old foundations. You cannot however enter the tunnel as it has caved in and the entrance was sealed to keep people out and from dying within an old tunnel.
So, no Satanists (actually, all satanic cult crimes were merely a social panic in the 80's. No such things have ever happened or existed.) It was just an old spiritualist group that dug a tunnel in hopes of finding an ocean.
The founder of Harmonia also tried to build a God Machine. John Murray Spear, check him out.
And Guernsey Hollow.
The vandalism you see was largely done a long time ago. People used to steal head stones near the time when it first opened because they were poor or they could re-work them and resell them.
There are actually a lot of people buried there then you would think. Any empty space you see is most likely a grave. You can tell see it in person because the old burials used wooden caskets. Over time they break and the ground sinks in a bit. So if you see a grave sized indentation on the ground, it is most likely a burial site.
The Church/building everyone is talking about is to the right of the cemetery by the road. Get on the path to the cemetery by the stones and walk to the right into the woods aways. You will find a big hole and the foundation of the building. Neat!
If you go beyond the cemetery and into the woods you will find lots of stone circles. I don't know what they are. There are also stone chairs up there. I can't really tell you how to find them though because I was just wondering around.
There are spirits there, seen and heard a bunch of weird crap.
And about the partying that goes on. I know if I was a ghost I would love for people to stop by and have a beer with! Being dead and hanging out in a cemetery would be boring. Just don't break stuff. You would be a dick if you went to you buddies house and passed out on his table, breaking it in half, and then pissing on the floor. Same rules apply when partying with ghosts.

there is a house just west of park street on newland that I heard was supposed to be haunted back in the seventies I talked to a resident one time a couple of years ago and she said she had seen ghosts and was friendly with them and it must have been her house.

This is very interesting and very imformative great job!!!! 200 feet in is a deep cave that would have been neet to see..I spent alot of time at hidden valley campground growing up because Jan and cindy the previous owners were family friends. I wish they would have told me that story years ago..

I wonder what the technical legalities are if those of age went up to the cemetery late at night, had beer and just chilled and took photos/video without damaging anything.

Almost every place around could be haunted. Somebody probably died in every house that is older than 100 yrs old. Lilydale is definetly an adventure! The stomp and the hotel are two famous haunted places there.

Does anyone know the name of the "haunted house" on Lockport - olcott rd? I was there one night, many years ago, very scary. Supposedly a women was killed there. I think she was pushed down some stairs. I also visited it during the day, not as scary. I was just looking for more information about it. Also has anyone heard stories about the ghost that keeps getting picked up down by Cold spring cemetary?

yea the fenton museum DEFINITELY gives off more of a ''haunted'' vibe if you will. it's more about the spirits feeling violated. and i would feel violated too if someone made my house into a museum after my family is all deceased. anyways. guernsy hallow doesn't seem that bad, i mean OBVIOUSLY there is going to be the presence of spirits because well hmm... it is a GRAVEYARD for christ's sake. but that gives lakeview the same right to being ''haunted'' as well, if not even MORE ''haunted'' because there are so many graves. personally something is only ''scary'' if you want it to be it's all about how people perceive it. i don't think there is anything wrong with guernsy hallow and i garantee you if i spent the night in one of those ''haunted hotels'' that you see on the travel channel i would feel the same way about that too. if a spirit chooses to roam the earth instead of furthering its journey in the afterlife, there is nothing we can do about it. same as if one of our ALIVE friends or family members didn't want to go to college or move out or blah blah blah. it's all the same k bye.
