  1. Went to it yester day and it doesn’t matter what day u go you feel like your being watched even before you enter the place and yes u here a scream but it sounds like it’s from behind u

  2. I moved into a studio apartment on 6th JPV St. in early July (2017). The woods are immediately behind the house/studio. I began having paranormal experiences and didn’t yet know about JPV woods. I asked my landlord if the place (meaning the house) has spirits. He didn’t think so but told me it had been a drug house before they bought it last year. I had light knocking on the door, with no one there, but knew it was similar to only twice before in my life. THEN I had a nightmare, where someone came into my studio through the window and held a gun to my head. In my dream I began praying out loud. It was very vivid. It is important to note that I did not remember having had a nightmare in many, many years. This seemed to me to be a warning. This was also in July. It was the 3rd week of August when a neighbor told me about JPV woods. Then it all made sense. (Funny note, my mother’s birthday is August 13th, RIP!)
