Murphy's Ranch

The legend here is that Nazi sympathizers wanted to start another Reich in California. Children and locals went missing and may attributed to occultists who also are said to have made this area their home. The screams of children are reported and it is believed that the land itself is cursed.

    Me and 7 others decided to go on a night hike there it was around 12 am … We dmchose to take the road to the powerplant or powershed …. 3/4 of the way there we heard screams sounded like a women screaming it happwned twice one after another… We all stopped shocked looking at eachother we decided that it was best to start making our way back when i heard the screams again we all started walking faster thats the second time it happens two us we havent even explored that place to the fullest but its definately haunted

  2. i am reminded when I resided on raymond ave in santa monica ca. i use to walk to the beach shores and cottages. the quaint quiet little streets of venice ca. the great musicians would gather from the doors jim morrison ac dc other rock bands even bill murray to phil collins and yes robin williams. anyhow guess who was there adolf hitler in disguise. mode of operation was to disguise himself and walk in the evenings when quiet and people were sleeping. 1974 and 1978 hallow-weens was last times i saw hitler in person.
