This was the site of a old house built in the mid to early 19th century. The house has been gone and the site of the house is now home to a United States post office. However, the house back in the mid 1800s owned 125 acres that today is home to a shopping center, apartments the post office and new town homes (currently under construction). The location of paranormal activity seems to focus in the field behind the post office which would have been the rear yard when the house stood. A black apparition that has a masculine physique that when seen seems to look at you and then turns into an orb of greenish brownish light that glides off into the woods that are at the back of the field. The property is zoned commercial and is private property so please get permission if one wants to investigate. The location is right off of Hanover Crossing Dr literally behind the post office on route 301. Not much history can be found on the internet to know just who lived on the property or if there is by chance a unmarked cemetery.

  1. Those interested in snooping about should do so only with the owner’s OK, since the land is privately owned and classified as commercially zoned. You can find it off Route 301 and Hanover Crossing Drive, directly behind the post office. There is little information available online about the property’s past inhabitants or the possibility of an unmarked cemetery on the grounds.

  2. I didn’t have any expectations concerning that title, but the more I was astonished. The author did a great job. I spent a few minutes reading and checking the facts. Everything is very clear and understandable. I like posts that fill in your knowledge gaps. This one is of the sort.

  3. A dark, masculine apparition that appears to glance survivor io at you and then transforms into a greenish-brown orb that glides into the woods beyond the field. Request authorization to investigate the commercially zoned private property.
