I was there this afternoon. It has changed quite a bit. A large, new Methodist church. I was disappointed to see that the graveyard has been fenced off and that the old church is gone.

Oh? Well then, no wonder they tore down the old church. It must've been getting in the way. :D

Honestly, I wouldn't recommend it now. It's pretty much a worthless trip without being able to get up to the church (or the remains of the church).

It crumbled down awhile ago, and then mysteriously caught fire a few years later I believe..

The fence went up to keep 'so called ghost hunters' out from what I am told..

Do they have a bar?

2nd right after you go through the gateway. The beer is warm and the food is cold though.

Was there not a little ground stone stairwell or something behind the church?
I remember reading up on the church years back.

I've given my story in these threads:


EDIT: Okay, I think I fixed the links....try these:

Here's the most relevant info:

I've posted the full story before....but as a college sophomore in 1983, me and a bunch of drunk college buddies crashed the annual Halloween devil worshipping ceremony in Stull, KS. We made it to within 150 yds or so of the freak's chanting to weird music in the cemetery....before being spotted, and getting run off into a high speed car chase all the way back to Lawrence....

I had been skeptical of the whole thing, and we decided to see if they were for real; and they were. I certainly didn't expect a 100 mph "chase" back to Lawrence, during which they tried to run us off the road with their Cherokee. Thank God for muscle cars, otherwise they'd have probably succeeded...

It was spooky as hell. It was a good thing all but the driver had been drinking....he refuses to discuss the whole thing, to this day.

To this day, I get chills and goosebumps thinkin' about it....it was the freakiest thing I've ever experienced--especially, now, considering all the stuff you can read on the internet about Stull, KS.

I suspect much of it is urban legend, another chunk of it is embellished drunken college kid stories, and a bit of it probably based in fact. It was really spooky though, and I'm not at all the superstitious type.

FTR, paganism and the occult does engage in some weird practices and ceremonies, so as far as what I saw....it was nothing really unusual. It's all the stories surrounding those activities that are really eerie, but I don't think much of it is probably "real."

I have no trouble believing that a gateway to hell is located in close proximity to Lawrence. :)

My sister is into all that para-normal mumbo jumbo. She said the place she's been the most creeped out by was Gettysburg, PA. She said she felt really bad vibes there, and wanted to leave asap. Her husband at the time was a big civil war buff.

LOL

Comanche County rancher, Jack Freeman (http://members.cox.net/cyoho/dgp/tales/chap2.html), used to maintain
that the other six portals to Hell can be found in Oklahoma.
This may be hearsay, or it may be heresy.

well times have certainly changed, as has terrain/development etc.... what side do you live on, the Ind. side or Blue Springs? I'm sure it was mostly rumors (growing up) but-there were some places near it that weren't inviting looking. So, yeah. But (again) this was 20 yrs ago (@ least.)

I watched a show on the hauntings at Gettysburg - all kinds of stuff in the area (if you believe in that sort of thing). IIRC the worst one is a barn that they stacked corpses in - there was one guy who was thought to be dead but was alive, regained consciousness, and spent three days in the pile of rotting bodies before they finally heard his screams and dug him out. He died shortly thereafter. His spirit is understandably not very happy. Yuck.

I lived on R.D. Mize in Indep, just a couple miles up from the airport.

The only rumors I remember hearing about Selsa revolved around Dewitt Road, which was just in front of the traintracks before 39th street, just by the airport.
I rode my bike back there probably 20 years ago and found nothing out of the ordinary.
