The Harmony Inn is located in a National Historic District in the town of Harmony, PA. It was originally owned by Austin Pearce, a prominent banker, mill operator and railroad executive as early as 1856.

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…
