ok….if you want to know the truth about helltown, just go to
its really interesting and it tells the ACCUAL truth of boston mills. i read it, its good. gives explanations of the “hauntings.” oh, by the way, there is no bench in the “haunted cemetary” that a “ghost stares into creation” from.

hell town is not true. there are many stories. but they are not true. if you look into the actual history of the town you can see where the stories come from. you should do some research befor you start spreading stories. This is one that just causes people to get in trouble. for example there is no bench in the cemetary.

i agree. this story is completely fabricated. the history of the town is more depressing than scary. do a little research and you’ll see.

This story is ****. Its not true at all. You should look things up before you go around posting stuff like this. I totaly agree with “bee” comments.

The story’s a lie, I’ve been to Helltown before and it’s a very interesting place to check out but not haunted at all. I usually go there after snowboarding at Brandywine/Boston Mills resort at 3 in the morning.

Sometimes when I am alone I like to touch myself in what some people would think an inappropriate manner…but it feels good and I cannot help myself. I have a neighbor who likes to watch, I just found this out the other night because I looked up and he was touching himself watching me! So now we touch ourselves together when no one’s looking…

I remember when I was a teenager a tree moved in front of me causing me to walk straight into it…I was drunk at the time…true story…
Anyway now I’m thirty something and no longer a drunken idiot / I still believe in ghosts but I find the shear physics of a tree uplifting its rots and moving a little hard to swollow…still interesting reading.
Lots of love from N.Z.

OK – Here’s a thing. After making this comment last night I read in our local paper this morning about a local Pohutukawa tree that has exploded, thought to be due to people topping it in the past causing the trees weight to be unevenly distributed. Apparently according to the local council it is also not uncommon for Pohutukawa’s to slide down cliffs and re-settle at the bottom. Apparently very hardy trees. Might shed some light?

Its got an aura and thats it. All you will find is cops waiting for dumb kids.

My brother has been to that, and when he was there, he said that there was a small mound of dirt just sitting there. Then he heard strange moaning and drums and when he looked back the mound was coverd in satanic ritual items and sticks, and more hung from the tree. They were only in for 5 minutes at this point, so it coudn’t be a prank. He scrammed after that incident and now sweats and gets freaked out whenever i remind him.

This is true. My brother in law grew up here and he saw the men in white suits walking around where the alleged chemical spills happened. Also there are many ancient indian burial grounds here. The land is desacrated. People who live in boston hts get real mad that kids creep around so they try to say its false. Also the Jaite Mill nearby is hanuted to and Indigo Lake. It is VERY haunted and satanical… Everyone should go check it out bc its very true. Not a rumor, they just dont want kids around. Keep an eye for the Hostel. Very spoooky

ive been to helltown about 30 times now…and my first time was less than 6 months ago lol, yea im bored, i only live 30 mintues away for anyone who wants good directions…. sure maybe none of the storys are true, no i have never seen a cop there, only thing is the park police or w/e that parks in the overflow parking lot across from main street… i stayed in the hostel on stanford rd one night even, and yes, creppy **** does happen…although storys are fake, its a neat place

hektik says:

October 25, 2007, 5:15 am

and as far as cops, yes i guess it is illegeal to be in a graveyard at night, but i never got arrested and went everytime, i have yet to see another car on the road, except on rt. 21, once i hit boston mills rd/blackrd/bostonmills rd and enter the area, no vehicles…. and yea so **** what Adrienne said, and yea…there is no bench there, just usually foggy as hell if u go at night

Helltown is an interesting place, but not scary. I too have heard the stories and checked it out, but nothin frightenin. We also heard rumors of the Melon People!! LOL… I guess they were deformed people whose heads looked like melons.

Anyways, the only creepy place I know of is Terra Vista. Knew a kid I went to high school with hang himself there.

I’ve also heard about a abandoned mental asylum out that way too, but never found it. Anyone know of it?

I tried going to Hell Town once and it was def creepy. Before we made it to the house we were pulled over and sent back the other way. The cop says the house is rigged with silent alarms that go off at the police station if you get too close to the property. It’s not hauinted, just creepy. One thing I’m confused about tho, do people still live there?

danielle says:

November 24, 2007, 9:43 pm

I’ve been there before. There was a road that said closed and we went past it and there was trails and stuff but if you keep walking it gets creepy there like an abandoned house and abandond car in the woods. we went into the house and the electricity was still on and everything.

Although I do not believe in ghosts or anything like that, I am very interested in Helltown and would like to visit there. I’m looking for anyone who can provide in depth information on the town’s history and hauntings. Also, anyone who has had SERIOUS paranormal expierences/ Run ins with the cops.

As for the bench that man of you have claimed not to exist. The bench was removed due to old age and vandalism.

Look for me on facebook if you have any information. Thanks

Don’t go to Indigo Lake! It is very haunted and I saw 3 really old half se-through hoarse-drawn cariges, slipping in to the lake for some odd reason!

LOl….too funnny…Ive lived in Boston hts all my life…most of what is said here is complete BS!

DON’T GO TO HELL TOWN. Nothing there is really scary at all. The real fear is the cops. We went down the “highway to hell” (stanford road) and turned around in somebody’s driveway to go back, and were stopped by a park ranger who called in backup and questioned and held us up for half an hour. “What did we learn tonight? There is no Helltown.” Yeah. Don’t even bother.

First, Danielle–The Girl Scout Camp is *miles* away from Helltown, so I don’t understand why you said “it’s right next door”. Second, *most* of the stories are TRUE!~And *more*! The Church on the cornor orginally had satanic blood rituals in there where horrific things happened to innocent people. I also have several friends who have either lived there, or grew up there, and are NOT living there anymore. I have also seen a photograph of my friend sitting on his couch with a very visible outline of an actual ghost skeleton sitting behind him in attire from the 1800’s, with long boney fingers. My friend had been complaining of bizzarre occurances, and after he had gotten the pictures back from the developing store, and saw that man, he moved out. The *only* reason why people are saying there is nothing going on there, is to discourage ghost hunters from going there and viewing their ritual chants which some people still practice to this very day. This is a tiny community full of secrets, and they DON’T like outsiders! Also, most of the people who live there, adhere to The Second Ammendment, and they’re not afraid to use them! Furthermore, for you ignorants, a ‘Tress’ is something which holds something up, in this case it is a bridge, and yes, it does sway from the weight of ones vehicle. Duh! So yes, it would be a good idea NOT to go to Helltown!

Dee Z says:

October 29, 2010, 12:02 pm

Ummmm,Dee?? No,Most of the stories ARE NOT True!!The Church you are talking about? I grew up in that church,made my 1st communion there,confirmation ect…It was never,nor is it now a satanic church!!
You go on to say …this tiny community doesnt like outsiders??
Hmmm,Is that why we promote so many activities for visitors?? such as ….Peddlers Day,Python Day,The Harry Potter Festival,all the activities of the bike and hike trail,scenic railroad & 2 ski lodges??….we love visitors…Keep bringing your money to our communuity!! and Ohhh by the way…before you call someone ignorant again and make yourself look stoopid….LOL….its a “truss”…not a ‘tress”!!
Stay outta peninsula hun, we dont like stoopid people….Ahahahaha!
