*Marley's Rock Refuge*

 
Investigated: 3/24/12
 
Claims:
  • People feeling like they are being pushed out of the area, almost like someone doesn't want them there.
  • During the 70's, one report of a bright light appearing while a truck would not start.
  • The original construction crew that was building "Flag Lake" got scared off. 
 
Renvenant's Paranormal Events:
One time Mel Meter spike to .5 mg. We accounted it to a possible residual entity not intelligent.
 

Revenant Comments:

We felt quite rested while we where there and did not feel in the least that someone wanted us out of the area. This picnic area offers a peaceful site to spend an afternoon. Large hardwood trees shade the picnic shelter. A fireplace and tables provide a cozy atmosphere even in inclement weather. Large open areas allow plenty of room to play. A small pond is stocked with fish and has an accessible fishing pier. A short nature trail is nearby.

  • Historical:

    • The Molly’s Rock Picnic Area, built on the site of an old homestead, is located near a massive granite boulder known locally as Molly’s Rock (true name is Marley's Rock). The origin of this name is uncertain because there are several different accounts of its source. The picnic shelter was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) sometime between 1936 and 1942. The area known as the location of the large stones called Marley's Rock Refuge Area is down the road from the Recreational Area. This area is only marked by a concrete stone and the obvious large rock outcropping present.
