This is a personal experience. It is a true story that i have decided to share with my friends on ATS.
The Train tracks:
When i was 14 me and my friends use to go on "adventures" by walking down the abandoned train tracks. We would take various paths in which would lead
us to different, interesting location's. We found many places that were great fun, and some that were just plain creepy.
The Watch tower:
We were following a new route farther than we had ever been. To the left we caught a glimpse of some kind of watch tower. We fought our way through
the brush and spider webs and came upon a clearing. On the "north" edge stood a the Warehouse, in the middle stood a Watchtower. To the left... well i
try not to think too hard about it.
The place was rundown and had clearly been abandoned for decades.
We investigated the Watch tower first. It was about as you'd expect a watchtower to be like. No real surprises except, you know, finding a watchtower
completely abandoned. It was interesting, but took a back seat to...
We entered the warehouse from an open door that led into a garage. The room was full of tires. Old, used tires. Nothing interesting and, in fact, kind
of boring, so lets move on.
The newspaper room:
The next place we came across was a room completely wallpapered in old newspapers. The entirety of it was cover in newspapers! Someone, for some
reason, spent day doing this! This is not something that you do on a whim. Where did the newspapers come from? How much did they cost? Someone planned
that out. No furniture, just BAM, newspapers wall to wall.
The weirdness had not began.
A room, about as big as a walk in closet. It was covered like a padded freaking cell! Like one you would see in an insane asylum. The door was missing
and the room was almost completely ripped apart, but you could tell what it looked like(or what i thought it looked like). I have no idea why it was
there. Pretty creepy though.
A basement, but it wasn't a basement. It had tunnels that felt as if they went on forever! We had to use chalk-like rocks to mark where we had been
and we barely found our way out before our cellphone batteries had been depleted and my friends mini-flash light key chain went out.
That place was weird. It went on and on, same walls, same silence. There was nothing down there, I have no idea what it could have possibly been used
for! Who made it? Why did they make it? Why is it abandoned? I have no clue.
Me and my friends spent twelve(it took us about three to get there and back so actual six or so... Still!) hours
in that area. Even after that,
we still know nothing about it. Who built it? Why is it there? Why is it abandoned? We know nothing.
We have mentioned the area to each other in the time since. We have not, to my knowledge, actually told anyone about our discoveries.
I have omitted a lot of details about the place, because they really aren't very interesting. And they present no enlightening information. This is
just something i was reminiscing about recently and i thought i would share.
Since there seems to be some confusion: The place had obviously had recent visitors such as homeless and other kids, like us. There was no evidence
that anything illegal took place. Well, that's not true. The place had been HORRIBLY vandalized.
So.. Other people have found this area. And there is probably a completely logical explanation for its existence.(I have always thought of it as an
old military base of some kind.)
