You’ll Never Guess What’s Hiding In Plain Sight Right Here In Pennsylvania

Everyone in the country knows that Pennsylvania has a uniquely large part in our country’s history. It has tons of fascinating stories, though, beyond the legacy of the Founding Fathers, Liberty Bell, and the Battle of Gettysburg. One place, in particular, with interesting history is the abandoned town of Alvira, which was at one point seized by the United States government and transformed from a village into a compound of munitions bunkers.

Today, the concrete bunkers sit abandoned in public game lands. If you visit, you will find them, covered in vines and partially obscured by rust and debris. A few bunkers stand ajar, and the more adventurous explorer will find miscellaneous objects stacked inside.
