An old furnace gives way.One local legend has it that part of this old furnace gave way, collapsing in a half-molten fiery inferno onto one hapless Jack Lee Sommers.
Unfortunately for Jack, the mishap didn't take him out all at once. The lava-like rock pile only simultaneously cremated and crushed his left leg. Time and infection did all the rest.

Every town has one... in Lawrence, NY it's called Bloody Mary's House.Every town has one... in Lawrence, NY it's called Bloody Mary's House. The site is what's left of an old brick house or outbuilding of some sort - and there isn't much left. It's basically just a crumbling brick staircase leading down to a dank, musty, cobweb-filled cement-walled chamber with Satanic-style messages scrawled all over the place.
In the 1980's the place had the reputation of being the place where some big bad mojo went down - devil worship and the like.

- Thistle Mill at Ilchester, Md. -- 4 Nov 2015 -- Quick jaunt to site of infamous paperworks, spirit sightings, gruesome deaths, poisonous chemicals, strange goings-on, long dark interest. Numerous photos of the now demolished (and excavated) mill and surrounding area. Liz' rods were wildly communicative (as usual), this time with a spirit identifying itself as "BZZ". We wonder if this was the suicidal Robert Buzzard identified by Lonster in his investigations of the mill. See the old report in EGQ1
