Dead Cranberry Coal Miner Still Walks The Tracks

This story takes place in Cranberry West Virginia, just outside of Beckley. When I was young growing up in Cranberry it was a favorite past time for all of the boys to walk the train tracks to Skelton and back. We would walk on the rail as long as...

It was 1995 and I was 16 and had my first boyfriend, I'll call him James. James was 18 and had a 77 Charger and took me out to the Valentines dance at our high school. We had fun and James promised to have me home at 10. We said...

Strange Encounters At Pipestem State Park

Strange Encounters At Pipestem State Park

I do not know if I am the only person to ever see this, or if others have seen such things also. I am a seasonal employee of Pipestem Resort State Park. The supervisors prefer to have guys work the night shifts whenever possible. For some reason, they think that...
The Baby

The Baby

My mother-in-law used to live in a house at the junction of Rt. 7 and Rt. 20. Her youngest son was only a few months old and she would push his crib against the wall by the fireplace, so he wouldn't get cold in the wintertime. She would walk into...

Tea Time

Tea Time

This is entirely true. It was the summer of 1994, and I was 13 years old. I do not remember the city because it was a short visit, and I am from a large town in Florida. Telling this still gives me chills. My father is half Cherokee and was...
The White Wolf of Whitlock Farm

The White Wolf of Whitlock Farm

I guess a lot of people know about Wolf Creek near Fayetteville because it drops into the New River Gorge in a series of spectacular cascades. But I don't suppose many know that the creek heads up in the plateau near Oak Hill and that it was named because...
Chapmanville Grade School

Chapmanville Grade School

Chapmanville East Elementary School is very spooky first of all. It's a very large and exceptionally old brick building and it stinks inside. The school has a lot of character to say the least. I knew a teacher that worked there very shortly. She said that sometimes if she was...
