A Very Cold Place That Had Worse Feelings - quotations from ghost stories

"Fletchertown Road has long been the subject of the story of the "Goat Man". Said to have escaped from the nearby Dept. of Agriculture Research Center and been an experiment gone horribly wrong involving breeding of humans and animals. The Goat Man is said to have murdered and eaten it's victims in the 1950's and 60's. The Goat Man continues to be a favorite ghost story among campfires in this area. In the 1990's Fletchertown Road was widened and many new housing developments sprung up in the area. The original road was one lane and heavily wooded. There were reports in the 1970's of a half man/half animal being spotted on the sides of the road, with red eyes and tattered clothing stained with blood."

"Hell House - The building was founded in 1866 and it's main building was erected in 1868. It is actually in Ilchester, MD not too far from Ellicott City. It is said that it was a catholic all girls school and the cardinal had impure thoughts which he took out on 5 nuns. A nun came foward and told the archbishop and the cardinal had to leave. The nuns were later killed and place above an inverted pentegram. Later more girls and nuns died and the school was closed down in 1972. Some say that the nuns at the school were practicing satanic rituals and some say that the cardinal came back to get his revenge. Unfortunately, the school burned down Halloween night in 1997 and authorites still do not know the cause of the fire. Some people have heard screams, girls laughing, and have seen a strange shadowy figure on the premises. There are tunnels underneathwith drawings in red of pentegrams and other markings. - A note to all who go, be careful because the building is no longer stable."

"An old shut down mental hospital and insane asylum, Multiple buildings, Its almost like a full neighborhood, but with institutes everywhere. Some buildings are still in use by the army, which is odd. Many things scattered throughout the buildings, Voices heard, tracks made on floor in water or something wet, dolls hanging from ceilings that are too high to reach.
