The Gates Of Hell

The Gates of Hell – located on the South West side of the Moseley Estate.  It is 2 large iron doors over 10 ft in height, that were built into a hill that lead underground to a storage area.  Fortunately for some it did not go to Hell.  If it had we’d be missing a lot of locals, and there would be more to this story.   Inside in stark contrast to Hell, it was cold, musty and damp, even during the summer.  It was part of the Fredrick Moseley Estate.  Locate It

Many have visited (entered, explored, partied, drank etc…) the site over the years and some have some unique stories to tell.

I am looking for a photo to use on this post.  If you have one I’d like to include it here.  The gate I believe are gone now though.   Please email me!

Please tell me what you know!
