Gravity Hill – North Park

461 McKinney Rd, Wexford, PA 15090, United States

Website

Located at the intersection of McKinney Road @ Kummer Rd. Drive up McKinney toward the golf course and stop at the stop sign at Kummer Rd. Put your car in neutral and you will drift backward up the slight hill. This really works, and does not have an apparent reason. This is one of many such “gravity hills” in the state. Optical illusion or something more paranormal? You decide!

The Deacon of The Depreciating Lands Museum

4743 S Pioneer Rd, Allison Park, PA 15101

The Depreciating Lands Museum is located near Route 8 in Hampton Township. It is a small museum, primarily used for education about pioneer life. It is known for its day camps and programs for young children. The building that it occupies was built in 1839, and was originally a Presbyterian church. For that reason, the friendly spirit that is rumored to be there has been named “The Deacon”. Tales of The Deacon & the haunted house began in the mid seventies, during building renovations. The Deacon’s purpose is typically to ensure safety, as if he is still watching out for those that occupy his building. Instances include the helping of a young boy on a ladder and the protection of workers from a ceiling cave in.– Read More…

Glowing Tombstone of Hoffman Cemetery

Hoffman Cemetery, Smithton, PA 15479, United States

From a certain viewpoint along Stahl Road, looking across the valley at the cemetery, one tombstone in particular appears to glow against the night sky. This has been known for decades, but in recent years cornstalks have blocked the view during the summer / fall. I have not been there in quite some time so I do not know the current status. A simple study years ago concluded that the strange light is indeed coming from a certain tombstone, but to this day it is not known why. Some have said it is a reflection from a far off street light, but this seems unlikely. The tombstone does not glow when standing near it; you can only see the eerie glow from the vantage point across the roadway! Because of this, the cemetery has grown legendary in the local area.– Read More…
