Matthew’s cub scout den took a trip to the Monson Village Site. Monson is the site of a village that was abandoned in the 1700’s. There’s only one house left standing. Mostly its a wooded tract of land full of cellar holes. No graves or dead folks. The scenery is nice, especially in the fall. HOWEVER, it was late on a gray, windy fall afternoon. Some of those old cellar holes are just plain creepy, especially if you’ve seen the Blair Witch Project, and have an over-active imagination.
The kids found an abandoned, filled-in well and started poking at it with sticks and throwing rocks into into it. One of the kids even tried to drop M&Ms in. I fought back the urge to scream NOOOOO!!!! YOU’LL WAKE UP THE OLD LADY!!!!!!.
Anyways, no unquiet spirits troubled us and we made it back to civilization.
I wonder what’s next. How about camping out in the cemetery on Halloween?
