I believe it was on Rome Road or near Deerlodge somewhere.

From what I know (and this is all hearsay), they built a large concrete landing pad of some kind, and had big mirrors lying on the ground at certain angles to signal or aid the aliens when they landed.

They were long gone by the time I was old enough to understand what anyone was talking about when they referenced them.

ROFLMFAO...dont be a bunch of suckers...
The "alien" landing pad was a helicopter landing pad. They put out the alien cult thing so people would leave them alone. They were the biggest drug suppliers in the area and supposedly trafficked it up from Florida. Thats why they needed the landing pad. I lived on Rome Road back then and thought it was hilarious that everybody was dumb enough to believe the "alien" story. I was only in high school at the time, but come on people, you could hear the friggin helicopter almost every night...LOL

No, they were not good people. Ok folks, listen up, here's the story from the start: Back in 91-92, My uncle was leasing the farm from a Phillipino Dr. He met (from Md.) who had bought the farm out there on roam rd.(said Dr. is now deceased) This Dr. as it turned out was into alot of crooked practices and weird shit. Anyway, my uncle wanted to buy the farm from him, but he would not sell it, so my uncle packed up and moved away. Several weeks later, the not-so-good doc sends these drug dealing, UFO worshiping, mail fraud, cultist hippies down to the farm and tells them to take care of the place. My uncle still had a few things left in some of the out buildings to go back and pick up. My cousin, my uncle and myself all went there one day to get my uncle's possessions from the out buildings and the leader of the group (called himself uncle tom) came out to greet us...weirrrrd dude! Anyhoo, as we were loading the stuff up, another cultist follower dude named Raool comes up out of the cellar smelling like he'd been at a bong party at Austin Power's house and starts rambling on to the leader guy about one of the women in the basement "unchaining herself without permission and using the bathroom in the corner" to which the leader guy mumbled something to him about chaining her up in the barn loft. SO... upon hearing this, I go and tell my uncle what was said, he relayed the message to the police, and they set up a sting operation a few weeks later and busted them for ALOT of weird shit! Oh, and the thing about them putting out mirrors in the field to act as a helicopter landing and playing it off like they were summoning aliens is true. It was a cover for their drug drop offs and pick ups. They also had some sort of human trafficing going on in the basement. Very weird. I drove by there late one night and saw them standing in a semi-circle in the living room holding hands and chanting.... they had some sort of red light on up in the ceiling light socket. very strange bunch of nuts. True story.

Bullshit. All of it! I was there. They were a bunch of rich brats that had a misguided notion to be hippies. Yes they got raided. All that was found was some jars of chemicals in the basement. There was supposed to be further tests to determine what it was. All of this should be in the public record. You can't see in the window driving by. Check it out. Everything I've read on here is the same ol' same that was going around then. I kinda think that if there was massive amounts of drugs or some kinda slavery that some arrests would have been made. Just my opinion and like my ass iknow you have one too. Reminds me of the raid on the white house on highway 27. Rumor was that they were worshiping the devil. Turned out it was a bunch of teenagers partying way to much.

Old thread but I hate this kind of small town narrowminded gossip. Gotta agree with "Prick" above.
These were "rainbow people", a loose social network of hippies and vagabonds. Transients for the most part. There was a rotating cast of characters there, as is their nature. Months after the raids and whatever weirdness occurred there, I made friends with one of the guys that remained. They were a peaceful, organic "off the grid" bunch and the few occasions I visited, they were crafting bongo drums or carving in the woodshop, making pottery or converting an old schoolbus into an RV. The few that actually lived there; got a terrible reputation because some of the visitors they welcomed had drugs or dubious records. They were nice people, and welcomed ANYone. It wasn't their fault that some bad apples took advantage of hospitality. Weirdest thing I ever witnessed was one of the guys oven-drying banana peels because he claimed it relaxed him and was healthier/cheaper than cigarettes. Some of them were Pagan, and liked to roam the fields at night for solstice, meteor showers, and lunar events. Nothing more sinister than tie-dyed hippies staring at the sky, yet it was more than the small minds of this small town could handle.
