Quarry and Manufacturing Plant

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

This old factory was once used to make cement blocks and rods for railroad construction, but has been closed down for many years. In the 1940s, a chain on a large iron kettle broke, sending the molten metal onto five workers. All five workers died slow, painful deaths on the factory floor, immersed in iron. It is said that the spirits of the five workers will speak to you about their final moments in this life if you visit on certain nights.

The problems at this wooden Victorian harmhouse began in 1891,when the owner found pieces of a skeleton in the basement.He threw the old bones into a lime kiln.Soon,the family started hearing terrified screams in the early morning hours and bells chiming from nowhere.

Then,furniture moved across rooms,and a dismembered hand was seen on the staircase.Finally,the ghost of a bloody beaten man started to materialize.The family’s dog attacked the ghost and thrown to the ground with a broken neck.

During a dinner party not long afterward,groans were heard coming from an upstairs room and blood started to drip from the ceiling above the dinner table.

The family moved out the next day,and their deserted home became known as possessed by demons.When investigator Horace Gunn spent a night there, he woke to see the bloodied head of a man floating above his bed.

He ran into the hallway,but was grabbed by cold invisible hands and choked into unconsciousness.When he was discovered the next day,he was severely traumatized and incoherent.He never fully recovered from the experience.
