I've been by the entrance a few times. I have never gone in though, tons of no trespassing signs. The people who live there will call the cops and you will get arrested. They dont take it lightly. From the pics ive seen there isnt much to see anyway, just a few stone foundations.


Dudleytown is, in its entirety, privately owned by the ominously named Dark Entry Forest Group and trespassers will absolutely be arrested and proseucted. Although the amibence is incredibly spooky, there is really very little left in the area--remnants of a few homes, some cellar doors still visible where there used to be houses.

The official version is that the DEF's decision to purchase and then fortify Dudleytown has more to do with keeping out trespassers who were defacing ancestral homes and ruining property values in surrounding areas. That's the official version.

There's certainly a few military facilities that seem like cities.....they are on the map, but not to the extent in which they actually exist. I.E. you'd never guess how extensive they are by looking at a map.

Oak Ridge TN used to be a secret city. now its public. but if you walk the forest around you will find remnants of the city that used to be here as well back in the 50's and 60's. it was all dozed and the forest reclaimed it.

i have heard of old cities and towns that have been abandoned due to the fact that they were going to build a dam and flood the Vally. hence forth the people had to leave.

Yes, there are abandoned streets under Seattle. Parts of the underground city are now open for tours, but it's just a small part of what's still down there.

Someplace I always thought was pretty interesting is Centralia Pennsylvania. While its definitly on the map it is more or less forgotten.

If we have something close to Silent Hill this would probably be it.

Not that this goes along with the OP. But since dams was brought up.. If one was to drain Lake Berryessa in North/Central Califorina, you would find a city.
The Monticello Dam and Lake Berryessa

Another submerged city "Mormon Island" under Fulsom lake here in California. Until this thread I thought it was the only one.

At one time the Myan ruins were once hidded by the Jungles, some still are. It is reasonable, IMHO, to beleive that there could be many more hidden civilizations yet to be discovered. How much of this world has realy been gone over? Yes satalite pictures aid in discovery, but do they realy show every possible hidden civilization?

Pretty cool thanks !

This will probably be the most "bullsh*t" post ever
, but back in high school i read in the library that Bill Gates built his own "Microsoft City". I have searched for this "Microsoft City" on the internet many times, but to no avail..

Anybody heard of such a city?

well it isn't hidden but if you take the freeway to Tuscon Az, as you get closer there are derelict hotels and factories and all kinds of huge facilities that were built AND NEVER USED, it's just amazing it's one of my favorite things ,I never stopped and went in any of them but I sure wanted to. They are just a monument to wastefullness and poor planning I guess.

There is a town in Northern California called Bolinas that doesn't want to be found. The state would put up a sign indicating the edge of town, and the town folk would take it down. Last I heard, the state gave up. I can't say I ever saw the sign when I invaded their town. So it is on the map, but no signs when you get there.


Shhh! I grew up in Bo' chanting "go home tourist!" in the early nineties.

I never did join the BBP(bolinas boarder patrol), but I always liked the shirts they made and the way the stories of their adventures in thwarting caltrans efforts to "label" the town always seemed to inflate over time.
They had a story about how they gave up erecting signs and just painted it onto the road, so the BPP chiseled it out of the asphalt. I dunno, could be true.
There are good and bad aspects of living in a small, dysfunctional and somewhat geographically removed town like Bolinas. Take the 4th of July, for example...the town swells to the point that a couple years ago the cops blocked the road and weren't letting any non-residents beyond the checkpoint...so back to Stinson instead(really, a better home for Martha anyways).

Ever been to Forrest Knolls? If you blink while driving down the road, you'll miss it...well, almost.

Which leads me to an interesting story my stepsister told me about awhile ago.
She explained how she was with some people and I can't remember why or how this ended up coming to be, but she went with them way out into the forest where they came upon the rest of these people's community.
Apparently the local sheriff knew about these people living out in the woods, but they didn't bother anyone and there were no disputes that would eject them from the area, so they've apparently just been camping out there for awhile now(she told me about 2 years ago).
Kinda like establishing their own little village...or exactly like it, I guess.

So, that's basically the best "survivalist" method for making it through the rough times that I've read about.
Join a small and tightly-knit community that is entirely self-sustaining.

I know there is one here in Cardiff, Wales. My mother when she was a kid would go camping on this mountain and they would sneak to what they thought was the entrance where they would see milertary personnel moving digging equipment and rubble in and out of the mountain....

Years later my Uncle grew up to be a Lance Cpl and was entered into SAS training. He sadly took his own life but he had intel on what was inside the mountain. He said it is a giant underground city which will be used as an emergancy nuclear bunker. There are tunnels linked to the nuclear bunker in Greenwich, Greater London.

Ontop of the mountain is a Nature Trail Walk called Rudry forest. I have been here many times. Once ontop, you can see the whole of Cardiff. But what I find very unusual is that there are huge vents which are fenced off. This is in the middle of nowhere. Once when I was near to one of these vents. I could smell like a fast food smell, do you know like when you are near a Mc Donalds and you can smell the food. Well maybe that is exactly what is down in the Bunker/Underground City.

I ventured to the other side (meaning the side opposite to the view of Cardiff) and I dared to go any future. That whole side of the Nature ''RESERVE'' (where the entrance is aparantly) has been deforested. There were stagnant pools and tree stumps for miles. It was quite sereal.

Anyway i'm glad i can share my story. I did post a thread on this with pics of the vent and deforested area on another ATS account but I fail to remember the either the user name of it or the thread name itself, hence why I made this new one

i was once told by my moms boyfriend that he worked in the underground city that is under salt lake city. he said when he went to work they would meet at a small dinner out side of salt lake and get on a cargo van that drove them about 40-45 mile outside of town and from there they got on a subtrain and headed back toward saltlake but went down under the ground further. he said once you got there you checked in at a guard station and were escorted the whole time you worked and then left the same way.
