Stone Cabin / Outhouse and Mentor Rd. bridge

This is where I live! That is the Stone Cabin along with the latrine. It's all sandstone so I assume it is very old. I tried to take a couple pics of the inside through the window, but guess what? ---- they didn't develop! Wtf?!! Creepy.
I checked the negatives and I can barely make out anything. But to see it in person, you'll find it is very very very old on the inside and there were coyote tracks everywhere (just adds to the creepiness)... the bridge tunnel is neat too. There are many signs of old foundations and man made rocks - even rock piles set up like in the Blair Witch movie (maybe a marker for the horseback riders??) Now this is all PRIVATE PROPERTY so I know there aren't people back there everyday just creating the illusion of fabled tales and myths. I am a very logical person and am not here to tell you that this is all the works of the devil... I have even been back to the cabin with no flashlight, all by myself - walked down the stairs beside the cabin leading to the creek and sometimes I think I'm crazy for doing so, but I just have to find "something". I'll do more research back there at night when I get my 22 mag. back from my brother - A run-in with those coyote's would be f&^%%$ scary without some sort of protection. Hell, they even come up to the house now!! So I have been staying put. But if anyone out there knows anything about the history of this little area your info would be greatly appreciated. I strongly believe it may be either ghosts of unrest or just some "thing" evil out there.

Something Back There

I have submitted the Witches Grave Pics, the bar and Gore Orphanage - recently I have moved to Mentor Rd. in Chardon. Facing my house and pointing right (north) is an old schoolhouse (prob. as old as the one I live in, about 150 yrs. old) - turned into a home. The nearest road (still pointing north) is the famous "Wisner Rd." Now Pointing south, the first house is condemned and run down, and after that is the cemetery across from Hermitage Rd. If you walk into my back yard (woods) about 500 paces there is a Stone Cabin, probably over 100 yrs. old. So I live smack dab in the middle of some folklore and oldtime ghost stories. I step out to have a cigarette around 11:30pm or so and I can hear gunshots and a woman screaming bloody murder "Nooooo!!" Usually I count 8 shots and three long screams. The coyotes and screech owls in these woods are plentiful, but with all the research, neither animal can make the sound of that woman screaming. It sounds like it is coming from the stone cabin. I also hear eerie noises of scurrying in the loft of my house. I've also been wondering if that stone cabin back there may have something to do with the part of the old Dr. Crowe legend where the government put him into hiding??? It sits upon a cliff and down hill is the creek - so anything could be in that basement (which doesn't have an outside doorhandle or lock). That basement could also go very deep. Very creepy. I have, from time to time, also seen through my out of the corner of my eye, a small dark figure which moves very fast as if it is retrieving something in the backyard and taking it back into the woods. Weird, because we have a food compost pile back there. Wendigo? Melon Head? Just a big raccoon? I will submit pics of some crazy stuff just as soon as I can.

Chippewa Lake

This isn't really a Haunted Story more of just a creepy one of an abandoned amusement park. This would make for a cool discussion I think. Does anyone know why they never tore the rides down after over 30 years and why they closed down in the first place? There are some good pictures and video here from our Oct 2007 visit. Feel free to copy and post whatever you want I wasn't really sure if this is something for your site or not so I'll let you decide.
