This is my first time going to Helltown, the abandoned town of haunting urban legends. The government evacuated this village in 1975. Little is known as to why this abandonment took place. President Ford signed a bill that gave the federal government jurisdiction to acquire the land for the national park. Destination America filmed a documentary on Helltown I will provide any link related to this subject. Stories of serial killers, satanic activity, and government conspiracy is starting to draw attention to this place. I'm not sure if any of this is true or not. I did see the abandoned video when someone got inside the red barn, and the noose was still hanging in the rafters.
