GOLD CAMP

Gold Camp Gold Camp is located in Bear Creek park in the mountains near Colorado Springs. I have some friends that live there and they know I love spooky stuff so they took me up there. This is my personal video of our experience (so there’s a little bit of “adult” language). Unfortunately, we just […]

The Voynich Manuscript and It’s Place in Cryptographic History

The Voynich Manuscript came into popular cultural in 1912 when  Wilfrid Voynich (a Polish book dealer) purchased it. It is unclear from where he purchased it so it’s even more interesting when you consider that the vellum it was written on dates it somewhere between 1404–1438! That’s a good solid 500 years it was just floating around somewhere with […]

Crater Lake, Oregon

Crater Lake, as the name might suggest, was created when the volcano Mount Mazama collapsed, leaving behind just the tip of the volcano as the island Wizard Island, which stands from the bottom of the lake up to over 700 feet above the water’s surface. The collapse of the volcano left behind a huge crater that […]

Amy Duggan Archer-Gilligan and the “Archer Home for the Elderly and Infirm”

Amy Archer-Giligan from Windsor, Connecticut is considered the most prolific female serial killer, with a possible victim count of 60 of the residents in her nursing home for the elderly.

This ship was finished in 1903 but early on had issues with listing–tilting one way or another–because it was too heavy. That should have clued people in, but people were […]

Babes in the Woods

This is an interesting concept, though sad. Traditionally, the title comes from an anonymous tale originally published in 1595. It was later absorbed into Mother Goose and in 1932, Disney created a movie by the same name. If you’ll notice, it’s also pretty similar to the tale of Hansel and Gretel, with two innocent children […]

Shades of Death Road

Yes, that’s the full name of the road: Shades of Death Road. Though, it’s mostly just referred to as “Shades.” That’s pretty ominous either way you slice it. This particular 7-mile long Shades of Death Road is located in Warren County, New Jersey, right up snug next to Pennsylvania. Interestingly, the other  Shades of Death is in […]

Bridgewater Triangle, Massachusetts

This area in southern Massachusetts is about 200 square miles and super creepy. It seems to be a hotspot of paranormal activity and unexplained events. The name was originally attributed to the area by the paranormal researcher, Loren Coleman, in his book Mysterious America. The area has a few landmarks of note. Obviously, the rock on […]
