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.

Ms.Gatekeeper 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.

doom vs @ 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.

ground state 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.

trailblazer519 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.

doom vs @ trailpro...I have put an entry in for the schoolhouse where the vigilantes met the night before taking matters into their own hand with the Donnellys. Check it out. I only found out after I visited the significance of the place!

ground state This was meant as a fun tale. I had someone email me requesting more information on the legend. To be clear: the entire thing is made up. It started with the real inscription over the door of the silo and just unfolded from there in my "deranged" head ha ha (thanks TGND).

ground state Thanks for all the great comments. I was watching them all unfold at work today through hotmail instead of logging in, and it was great to get so many. Comments are what makes the community here, otherwise we'd just be a database of locations, which would be greatly useful, but would lack "fun".
