Stull, Kansas.

Remains of the Evangelical Emmanuel Church at Stull, built ~1867.

"Legend also has it that glass won’t break if thrown against the stones of the church…. It was claimed that despite not having a roof, no rain would fall inside the old church on the hill. People said they have been subjected to a strong wind that held them down on a still night and sinister growls that came out of thin air encircling passersby. Almost everyone you speak to has a story about how ‘something’ happened to them at Stull. Almost everyone that is, except for the 30 or so residents of Stull, Kansas. They claim the only thing special about that cemetery is the fact their loved ones are buried there…." darkendofthestreet.net

notreallymyname:

The hag of the mist originates in Celtic folklore as a sort of banshee-like creature. Her wails can foretell anything from a minor misfortune to death. If the hag finds the person with whom the misfortune will fall, she may try warning him. By trying to warn him, she might even smother him to death. She cannot speak, she can only wail. So when her point fails to come across as anything other than madness, she’ll resort to physical signs of letting the unfortunate-in-question know what’s to happen.
