Quaker Church

Quaker Church Rd, Perryopolis, PA 15473, United States

Situated on a scenic hilltop near Perryopolis, the Quaker Church was originally the Meetinghouse for members of the Society of Friends in the area.

Tales of voices being heard, devil worship, ghostly oppression and even a “hound from hell” abound. Some would not even turn their car off in fear that it will not start again! But the main legend involves a particular gravestone, that of William Lynch, with a scary inscription (at least by today’s standards). Supposedly you will be cursed if you read it aloud, causing bad luck to you and your companions. On a personal note, I have experienced this firsthand, and is something that I cannot explain.– Read More…
