  1. Its in a cow pasture with small hills but if you go late at night you will have rocks thrown at you from out of nowhere, some people hear the sound of charging soldiers on horseback. Its a cool place to go but you will get an eerie feeling of being watch the entire time. Theres no electricity or power lines within at least 1 mile but you will get very high EMF readings
