Centralia, Pennsylvania

On our way home from this Summer’s vacation we stopped in Centralia, Pennsylvania. This town’s story was an inspiration for the movie “Silent Hill”. There’s a fire burning in the mountain mines.

Rather than try to tell you the story, I’ve included links to a rather comprehensive history of Centralia, Pennsylvania.

While walking around the area behind the Odd Fellows cemetery I briefly lost my keys. It wasn’t exactly the most reassuring place to have something go wrong. Fortunately I was able to find them by retracing my steps.
