There is a glass house up there.
As far as I've heard the only albino things
in the Quakertown area are squirrels and deer.
The "glass house" was supposedly owned by Doris Day. I don't know if it's still there, but there were iron gates that had "Que Sera Sera" on them.

She is just one of the celebrities that have lived in this area including Earnest Borgnine, Lucille Ball, and Billy Joel and Christy Brinkley.

I grew up in Lansdale, and as a teenager in the early 70's we drove to Haycock Mt. to see these spooky things like the pyramids, the albinos, the road that if you put the car in neutral you would go backwards UP the hill (I thought is was near Lake Nockamixon), and find the house with the porch lined with rocking chairs that would rock back and forth by themselves. I live in Quakertown now and have often wondered about these "urban legend" sites we attempted to find back then and where the locations were. I know the pyramids are near the Clymer Clinic, but the rest are long lost in my teenage memories. It is fun to see these things mentioned by others 40 years later, LOL.

One of my friends went to the Cylmer Clinic
and saw the grounds, nothing spooky about the
pyramids but they are interesting. He said the
Rosencrucians are rather secretive and don't
care for trespassers.

It's actually the Rosicrucians, or Order of the Rosy Cross; secretive like the Freemasons.

All this i've heard true. It's quite a popular place for highschoolers in the Quakertown Area. Most have gone and heard of Haycock Mountain/Ghost Mountain to which they go for the Albino House, The Pyramids, and The Rosicrucians'. There's many stories involved with each such as; The albino house is all glass and people have gone there and seen surgical tools and such inside, you will travel up the hills backwards, guard dogs that will attack, occultists in the woods that will kill you if you trespass, and other various frightening events on the mt.

Iluvbucks...I've survived the Albino's. However, thought this was of some interest. I spoke with Mr. Grim (not sure which Mr. Grim it was, I think Harry or Gary? There are 6 or 7 in the local Haycock area)and he grew up on Old Bethlehem Road in Haycock. He's in his mid-70's I'd guess. Anyway, he said when he was growing up that many locals would only venture up to the heart of Haycock Mountain on a dare. He heard of many people that never returned and one person that was sacrificed. His father always told him that "there are ghosts on that mountain." The legend apparently started in the 30's or prior? As a kid, he was terrified. Frankly, it's not too scary up there anymore. But, maybe on a foggy, cold halloween night?

The original Lassie is buried on Ghost Mountain,(AKA Rieglesville, PA) The owner of Lassie built a glass house up there and legend has it the Albinos guard the house over night. The mountain that you can put your car in neutral and coast up it is in Buckingham, called Gravity hill. Story is a school bus full of kids drove off the mountain and there were no survivors. I grew up visiting a lot of so called "haunted" places all over Bucks County.

Here is your "gravity" hill story. I should say stories. The optical illusion can be found all over the country.

I have a nice aerial slide from circa 1965 of 309 in Qtown showing the Plaza Shopping Center (long before Leh's was there) and the drive-in across the street. As soon as I get a slide scanner, I'll post it, along with other shots of Qtown from that era...including the Blizzard of 66, showing snow piled up to the bottom of the Sweetheart Shoppe sign!

Riegelsville is chock full of ghosts.
I can't remember where I first heard about it,
I think it was a cable TV show about ghosts
where the town was mentioned. Then I looked
it up on the 'Net and found out that ghostly
Riegelsville has a websites, and someone
wrote two books on the subject. Check it out:

The Clymer Clinic was owned by Dr Rueben Clymer and is part of my husbands family. Nothing secretive about him or the grounds.

That would be great to see!!! My Mom use to work at Grants and Woolworth use to have a really lunch counter. Way before there was anything where the Boston Market is, we use to skateboard down that hill going towards The Pub. That is in between getting chased by the Quakertown boys in blue. Those were the days. Lol... Refresh my memory, where was The Sweetheart Shoppe???
please do

Here's the deal on Gallows Hill. Halfway along Gallows Hill Road is a small church and there was a horrific fight between the colonists and the local indians. All the lost souls are buried there (the indians in unmarked mass graves, the colonists in the church's graveyard.) Apparently the indians did not like their afterlife treatment and haunt the hill.

I have also been to the top of Haycock Mountain - many times. It's really cool. Huge boulders (left over from the last retreating glaciers of the ice age, same as Ringing Rocks or Stoney Garden (on Stoney Garden Road.) The boulders are tumbled over and on each other creating caves and the locals have spray painted them in a very indian painting I was here way. In the winter (with no leaves on the trees)there is a terrific view of the lake.

The hubby said the glass house was on Roundhouse Road. Remembers the scary riding past dares and jaunts to that haunt. But some other local whit said it was on Coon Hallow Road and is only glass on one side. It was a converta barn or something.

Anyone else got any cool halloween stories for us? I'm loving this.

There's also a bridge called crybaby bridge off aquetong road in Buckingham I think. If you drive into the covered bridge, turn your car off and flash your lights 3 times, some crazy things start happening. I remember being there with a friend who just washed his car, and there were fresh finger prints that ran down the side of the car after we left the bridge.
