The Three Witches of Lipply Road Had One Of Their Grave Stones Stolen.

Picture taken by Angel and Steve.
I have been to Lipply Road a few times now and have yet to find these Grave Stones.  I do not believe this to be the final resting place for witches at all, but simply three people of German descent.  HOWEVER there are many who feel there is something paranormal about this site.  So much so that someone has stolen one of the three grave markers that was there.  I received this info in an  email from someone in that area, though I have not confirmed it myself.   The same emailer told me there is a reward for the return of the  stone( I don't at this time know the amount), so if you know where it is, consider helping the owners of the property that these people are buried on to get the stone back.  If you are the one who stole it, please give it back.  Everyone deserves to have at least that one stone that tells the world they were once alive and had a life.  One of these stones marks the grave of a young mother who died in child birth.   Family plots were very common and most likely that is what this little grave area is.  A simple family plot, holding the remains of people who were loved and later greatly missed.  They deserve the right to REST IN PEACE.

Salem's Grand Parade Was One Of Our All Time Favorite EVents!!

 We had an awesome time at the Salem Grand Parade!  This was our first year there and only our second parade ever, but we are getting better!!  Our Float was draped in black cloth and peppered with pretty silk flowers, trying to look like a funeral coach.  Our pull vehicle was decorated like a Lock for the Sandy and Beaver Canal.  Our Legends included Lucy Cobb, The Captain, Gretchen, Esther, Jake, Little Davide, The Bowman Cemetery Witch, Christina Sloan, the Young mother of Cry Baby Bridge, Erastus Eels, and the Captain of Grimms Bridge. 
Mike was our driver and Jackson, Jon, James, and I walked along side the float giving out dumdum lollipops! 
                                                                                                                              
Abbie was our Esther, Makayla was our Gretchen, Will was his usual Jake, Pam was the Bowman Witch, JoAnne was the Mushroom Lady, Kar was the Captain of Grimms Bridge, Jack was Erastus Eels, Zack was Little David, and Briana was the woman of Cry Baby Bridge.

Everyone worked hard to pull  this off and we had a wonderful time!  Salem is a great place to visit and is full of the coolest history!  You will see us there again on October 22 and 23 giving Haunted and Historical Tours!  Hope to see you there!!!!

Aug 12 at Gretchen's Was Crazy Busy!

We had more than 60 people on our Ghost Tour of Gretchen's Lock Friday night.  It was an awesome adventure! 

Our walk back to Gretchen's Lock was long because we had a lot of people, but well worth it. We met lots of wonderful people who were hoping to catch a glimpse of a ghost.  


We told all the usual stories and had ghost box and EVP sessions in the Grist Mill afterward. 

The pics were great but no one saw Gretchen or Esther.  That was a bummer.  

Those in attendance included Will, Briana, Jon, Amber, Lisa, Jack, Abbie, Alex, Becky, Maria, Pam, Jackson, Mike, and me. 

And at least  15 brave souls were brave enough to go into the Mill. 
We had an awesome time and hope to do it again very soon!!!  We will be camping down at Gretchen's Lock once more on Aug 27 and 28!  Come down and see us!
