  1. When I was a teen. I helped to plant trees at HBG hospital. We found human remains while digging to plant trees. We were across the road from one of the boiler towers.

  2. There is also the Perkasie Tunnel. A railroad Tunnel built in the 1850s and used by the old Philadelphia & Reading Railroad which existed until 1976 when it was absorbed into Conrail. The tunnel is haunted by three known Spectors. The most famous is that of a ghost train being driven by a headless engineer. The story goes on May 18th 1944 a passenger train being driven by a Charles Kraus was heading north along the Bethlehem Branch which the tunnel is located. Some say that Charles had a heart attack, others say he was leaning to far out the cab window of the locomotive. Whatever the case Krause's head struck the abutment of the south portal resulting in him being decapitated. The train continued all the way to Quakertown, the next stop on the line, when the fireman who had been busy shoveling coal realized the reason why the train wasn't slowing down managed to bring the train to a stop. Police and railroad officials went back to the tunnel to look for the engineer's head but couldn't find it. It is said if you go to the tunnel at midnight, walk from the south portal to the north portal and put your ear to the track. That will bring the ghost train manned by the headless engineer who will proceed to chase you through the tunnel. If you make it out your safe, but if you don't the engineer will run you down and cut off your head with his train. The other ghosts are said to be that of a woman who gave birth out of wedlock in the late 1800s and hung herself from the ventilation shaft in the middle of the tunnel, and the other is the ghost of a little girl who was hit by a train while playing inside the tunnel.

  3. I went to the Carnegie library of homestead every day after school ❤️❤️ since I lived in homestead

  4. I have wanted to go to Gettysburg for a long time, I feel drawn to it, not sure why. So much pain on both sides.

  5. So much sadness from both sides can be felt at Gettysburg. War is such a powerful piece of time where many factors come together and the enormous loss is impossible to fathom but can almost be felt on battlefields and surrounding areas.

  6. I have an infatuation and kind of a love for the paranormal, and I don't know why , I haven't had any paranormal experiences but I have always loved watching Ghost Adventures and ghost hunters and of course the G.H. intl since early 2000s

  7. When it comes to the world of investing, most people don't know where to start. Fortunately, great investors of the past and present can provide us with guidance
