Can anyone tell me about Lynderboro St. off of Red River Rd? I know there are some abandoned/burned down homes, and I've also heard rumors of a Satan church.

What have you heard about this part of town? Anyone been here?

Thanks,
R

I have heard that there was a satanist church that was burned down and that there was a cult that sacrificed people and bad things happened and that people that go there and mess with it, things happened to them but I really don't know. I rode through there a couple times and I definitely felt an eerie feeling so something ain't right but there are also houses down there and people live there so i'm not sure.

I have also been there a couple of times. I read stories about this place online a about 6-7 years ago and decided to check it out myself. I followed that path at the end of the circle and it goes into the woods and crosses some rail road tracks and leads to an old abandoned graveyard. Some of the graves looks to have been dug up. I took my wife out there last year and we both got a very erie feeling as if we was being watched and it felt as if we was being closed in and surrounded. We left and have not returned. I have since tried to find any info on it that I found years ago and I have not found anything! So if anyone knows more then please do tell or if anyone wants to journey back out there then I am in.

I've been to Lynderboro St. a few times and there is always an overpowering sense of being watched. According to what I've found it was build to house the people who worked in the mill at the entrance to the street (it was torn down a few years ago). There are a lot of rumors about it, but I had a friend who worked on the Catawba reservation and was told more than once to never go down that road. So of course we did. Apparently the "satanist church" was built in that circle the road loops around. There have been stories about houses that would mysteriously burn down, an old Indian burial ground (which could be true, it's really close to the old Nations Ford that used to be a main crossing of the Catawba River by the Native Americans in the area). I've tried to do some research to find out when the area was deserted, but there aren't a lot of hard facts out there. There was also a sexual assault back there once in the 90's (?). The area is just a bad place to be. I've never gone all the way down the path to the graveyard, I've always stopped at the old water station thing back there (big concrete circle). I'd love to hear more about it though!

I've been there a few times and there are some weird houses. The people that live in a few of them get really annoyed by the traffic of people. Im sure they just want peace and quiet. You can actually park by the railroad tracks and save yourself a walk. I dont remember any graves and I never found a church. But I did find a cement rectangle (like a cement coffin or vault without a lid) with a weird twisted tree growing from it. I'd like to explore more and check out the whole area since it is one of the only local urban myths.

There never was a church. It was an old mill building that the roof fell in during the 70s, leaving a stain on the upper wall in the shape of an upside down cross from the fallen rafters.

Please no one should be walking around on this property. My hunt club has this property leased . We have it posted and anyone found trespassing will be prosecuted. We have a huge problem with people dumping trash and we are watching over it . With that said, we are in these woods before day light and after dark and haven't heard or seen anything creepy. This area does have a history , but if you dig deep enough, you will see that every place has a history. 10 years from now it will all be developed , the old houses and woods will be gone and the story's will probably follow.

Tonight my friend and I were talking about red river. We decided to ride out just to pass the road and confirm it was the correct road. Within about 200 feet away from lynderboro st. I got chills all over my body that would not go away. I felt so scared. And we turned on the road I started panicking I'm not sure why I was and then I saw these two eyes. They were really tall I would say they stud about 6 foot. It was really dark and I had bad head lights to see with.. And It made me breathless and I couldn't do anything but cover my face. And try to breath. We didn't drive down the road that far. We literally drove maybe 300 feet on the road.

So don't worry David I wasn't on your property. I was on the road and barley at that.

So even barely being on the road it was the same thing.

I was driving down red river road on my way to work. Friday March 7th as I was coming down red river there was a wall of thick fog that came outof no where about half a mile before lynderboro to about half or three quarters of a mile after lynderboro. As I was approaching the railroad tracks I looked down the road and saw a tall dark figure standing near the road and I looked away and when I looked back down the road as I passed there was nothing there at all. I freaked out and sped up and as I crossed over the railroad tracks the fog just lifted and cleared up pretty quick.i know I'm not crazy when I read what Barnes to you I just had to assume that it must have been the same thing

I rode down there because I heard stories about the things that happened down there. Well long story short I saw people wearing weird costumes. So I left. Never came back.

I grew up close to there off Riverveiw rd ,my Aunt and I use to ride our Horses through there when People lived there and never knew anything about a Satanic Church or Rictuaul sacrifices ,never knew any Church other than the one on Red River rd I know Lafar Yarns use to own the Houses and would rent to their workers and it was Built 1930s and have been abandoned for 30 years and everytime I went out there I felt the feeling of apending dome and got the hell out of there, If anyone goes there make sure it's a group because theres something wierd about this.

Nothing out there, Its private property. Same with the old school house in lando, I been in there many nights and nothing happens. Plus those guys who live there have AK-47s and big pitbulls. If you get out of the car your f*cked, I know because I used to live there.

I lived in Rock Hill back in 2007,in the trailor park on Red River Road. One day as I was cooking out if the corner of my eye my child's bedroom door opens and I seen a blonde haired child walk in his room.I looked over and seen my sister in laws reaction (she was 16) so I asked what she seen just so she wouldn't agree with what u said first and she said a blonde headed kid..so,does anyone that lives or lived in Rock Hill know who this child might be? I always had strange feelings at night on that street but this incident was about 1:00 pm ..I just would like to know who this child could be

Went down lynderboro last night with my bf and cousin. As soon as turned in we just stopped bc we had such a horrible feeling and this mist or fog started coming out of nowhere and its like we couldn't move we were in shock at the feeling we got at the same time so we turned right back around and about a mile and a half down the road, my cousin was like go back go back! I said we can sit across from the street but not go in and of course, them being boys they turned in and I started freaking out and we had no bad feeling at all but it did feel like we were being watched the whole time. My bf tried to do a u turn before going around the loop but couldn't so we kept going and as soon as we were going more towards the loop, we all got that horrid feeling again and my bf slammed on his gas and he was like we gotta get the hell out of here and right when we got off the gravel road, these balls of mist kept flying towards us and every time we passed one, we all were saying did you guys feel that?! And at the stop sign, my bf swears he saw something running towards us from behind but he floored it for another mile down the road and we just agreed to never go back.

Today, June 2, 2016 I road down Lynderboro rd to see how it has changed since the last time I was there24 yrs. ago. I love local history and that mill village use to be a scenic group of english stlye houses. Now, they are all falling in. 24 yrs ago it was eerie and was glad to leave, people stared at me, etc. but i was giving a student a ride home who missed his bus. Today I got to the first house and I felt very uncomfortable, I wanted to go on but something told me to turn around. I turned but the road was too narrow and had to try again, thinking someone was about to come out and confront me, I drove into the ditch i was so anxious. Having awd i was able to get out of that ditch and got back on red river down. I think the church and satantic stuff is fiction but there is something eeire about that place and doubt I will ever visit again. Once it was a gem.
