Description


Every small town has its urban legends - most just get laughed off half-heartedly. But every once in a while, in between chuckles, the eyes of those who remember the truth will nervously meet and unconscious understanding will pass from one person to another: some secrets must be kept.

Wow. This blew my mind. I spent as many days as I could on this property when I was a teenager in the early 80's -- when this legend is said to have occurred. So of course when I saw this page, and three others including a video, I had to go check it out personally. We went just 4 months after the video was taken. So what we found had been done, had just happened. The paint was fresh.
I've just uploaded the pictures I took.

Weeeellll that was disturbing as all hell, I say whoever spends the night there gets a prize! It has to be fully documented and more than one person

@ trailpro...in Middlesex county. Goes by 'vigilante schoolhouse'. If you visit, careful that just inside there is lots of broken glass and cut up wire. Seems on purpose.

I thought you might have.

I have indeed and thought about them the whole time I was constructing this story. I am in the process of including a neat location in Niagara that ties in (truly this time) with their story.

Ok cool.
Ya i showed my pa this entry last night and he got a kick out of it too, made him laugh. Said it reminded him of these people, an actual true story. Said there was a film made about them years ago and Max Haines wrote about them.
