Locals will tell you that an antique glass jar was found in these woods and taken to a nearby resident’s garage, and shortly thereafter, the spirit of a very sad-looking Native American appeared and walked right through a table. The next day, the jar was taken back to the forest and broken against a tree, and since then, Indian calls have been heard coming from the forest.

  1. My team investigated this location (with permission) and found no evidence of paranormal activity. The only thing we captured was the word “Indian” through our Ovilus III device. That’s it.
