1. An Abandoned Amusement Park re-opened until Halloween
Photos by Robert Hogue
West Virginia’s abandoned Lake Shawnee Amusement Park shut down back in 1966 and has laid in ruins ever since. Many believe Lake Shawnee to be horribly cursed. The park was built upon the site of a desecrated Native American burial ground, and was the location of a brutal massacre of settlers. This week it opens for tours.

2. Hank’s Grocery
When you meet Hank himself, you might want to give him an earful for killing such majestic animals. He will hear you out (he’s used to it) and then tell you that he founded and personally funds an anti-poaching league in Africa, which employs reformed poachers to sweep for traps, raid and thwart illegal hunting expeditions.
The animals he has killed (all of which are on display in the store) are from healthy populations, free roaming, and hunted with bow and arrow. Surprisingly all legal. No matter how you feel about it, you have to admit you’ve never seen anything like it.

3. Mysterious Porch Mannequins
For all those living in the whereabouts of the New Hamburg train station in New York, a strange spectacle piques the interest. This mystery involves a porch occupied by a changing number of life-size female dolls dressed in different trends from the twentieth century, whose number, position, and theme, vary from day to day. A number of quirky (creepy) objects accompany the dolls on the porch.
Neighbours don’t seem to know anything about the current owners of the house, built in 1845. The Greek Revival wood frame structure is one of the only surviving structures on the block from an 1877 fire. At night, a kitchen light can be seen through the drape covering the front door. A vegetable garden is kept in the backyard. On many rainy days, the dolls disappear into the quarters of the paint-pealed home. In 1871, a train wreck occurred amidst a two-week record-breaking cold wave in which 22 people were killed less than two hundred feet away from the house.

10. The Real Rosie Riviter
Geraldine Hoff Doyle, was a 17 years (in 1942) while she was working at the American Broach & Machine Co. when a photographer snapped a pic of her on the job. That image used by J. Howard Miller for the now iconic ‘We Can Do It!’ poster, released during World War II. Because the “We Can Do It!” poster was created for an internal Westinghouse project, it did not become widely known until the 1980s, when it began to be used by advocates of women’s equality in the workplace. Doyle did not know she may have been the model for “We Can Do It!” until 1984, when she came across an article in Modern Maturity magazine which linked a photo of her to the poster, which she had not seen before.
