I just recently moved to Kentucky from New Orleans, and one of the most chilling stories I've heard so far is that of the Kentucky Mushroom Mines in Lawton, Ky.
According to local gossip, Satanic covens gather there on certain nights of the year to conduct unholy rituals, some perhaps even involving murder. Two dead bodies were found there several years ago, and the locals will swear all day that it was the work of followers of Satan.
Drug deals are also reported to take place out at the Mushroom Mines, and that could also explain the corpses. The undeniable truth though is that locals are scared to death to go near the mines at night.
I've been to the mushroom mines... they are located fairly close to Olive Hill, KY and I live in Ashland, about 30 minutes away from there. That place has a presence about it. It's a scary place. We used to go down there and hang out but I noticed that I would become very ill and the next day I'd be in bed throwing up all day. What was even creepier about the whole situation is... I was down there with my roommate one time and I'd never been there with him. He looked at me and he was like "We need to go" and I agreed and we ran outta there... the next day we were both extremely sick.
If you go there, make sure you take plenty of light source... I would recommend lanters. Whatever you do... do not take photos!!!!!!
