  1. The “six poles haunted” area is merely a gazebo built by the family owning the property. It was built as an observation point overlooking their farm. There is nothing to the idea of the area being haunted and it was never used as a sacrificial place. I know because I have lived very near this place for over forty years. It is on private property and no trespassing signs exist. Be advised not to enter the property without permission of the owners.

    • oops never saw the signs just went and that observation points markings do not make sense also the placement of the poles are extremely weird seeing as they don’t line up how a gazebos poles would. Possibly your right but anyone whos been there can agree that it definitely was not a slaughter house. I need those placements explained to me though

  2. six poles(more like five and half poles) is not a haunted location its a observation for the winter solstice in the middle there is a box with a saying that ” bless our crops for the next harvest” the box is where the sun hits and it tells time and when harvest the crops also its not part of devil worship its more of pagan religion yes paganism is tied to Satanism but not all paganism is bad also be advised when you visit you have chance of being shot or chased by big dogs so enter at your own risk

  3. i have seen the lady she was looking up and then i saw how she killed her sell but when i sew that i ran so fast nut i saw her with my own eyes

  4. This place isn’t haunted at all. This was a movie scene from Manos:The Hands Of Fate. If you watch the movie, and the Video Hotel Torgo, you’ll see what that place is.

  5. This place is a joke there is nothing haunted or scary about it I’ve been out here plenty of times at all different hours n not a damn thing happened. Nothing in my pics or recordings.

  6. So many idiots in here. It wasn’t a slaughter house/stone. It’s not haunted. It wasn’t a sacrificial spot. To the dumbass who’s boyfriend was possessed, well he’s a dumbass too. It wasn’t used as a lookout point, what you gonna look at the fucking sand?

    The only person who did research or knows here is Jesse and I quote
