    1. I live close by and have never seen spirits, horsemen ect.. It is a quiet serene place. There are some vandals and strange folk who come around leaving weird stuff in the trees. One time I was driving on the road nearby and there were two men, one wearing an antique black widows dress walking down the road. Kind of a cult thing I guess. If not for all that, it is a quiet historical area.
