This ghost town is referred to by some as the “Village of the Damned.” It was a settlement that began in the 1740s, and is situated in the middle of a forest. No buildings remain, only foundations, but reports say many spirits linger here, some of whom have been captured on film. Orbs also have been reported in the area. This is now privately owned land, and entry is forbidden. Reports say that in 2011, eight people on a film crew were arrested here by local police for trespassing.
