  1. My dad owns the brickyard in warners and I can guarantee you its not haunted. My brother and I used to camp out there all the time as kids haha.

  2. I may have strated that stupid myth, I WAS admittedly a bit wierd as a teen ager. But in 1973 I used to roam the then Abandoned property where the Brickyard brick oven and ruins of offices were still there. My “Fursuit” aka Werewolf costume had a gargoylish mask and total black body fur suit. I would walk my dog and several other dogs would join in the midnight walks.
    I remeber a person shinning a flashlight in my face.He screamed and I bolted away But I managed to out run him in the fields surrounding the area and crossed the train tracks to my bicycle and got away. I still have the costume ,, Trust me there are no real mo0nsters people,. or gods.

    • Hi Bill,
      Iā€™m from Warners and I welt to school with Scott. I hope you are doing well. šŸ™‚
      One night a group of us were down at the Brickyard with a campfire.
      As we all stood around the fire, we all heard loud screeching from behind the buildings a few hundred yards away.
      The screeching continued for a long time and we all slowly started to leave. My Ex and I were the last ones behind and we finally left when the screeching continued.

      Was that you by chance? I hope it was haha
      We were all scared out of our wits.

      Also there are stories from a grade school friend of mine who claims that while horseback riding down at the brickyard, she was chased by a naked man who appeared out of nowhere.

      • Hello Diana . Nice story, But I don’t recall that night scaring anyone at a campfire. But I wouldn’t put it past some of the other local kids at the time,Was a popular escape zone šŸ™‚
        Sad the sites still abandoned land..I will always remember it fondly
