What’s Hidden Underground In This Amusement Park In West Virginia Is Unexpected But Awesome

Camden Park is a 114 year old amusement park in Huntington, WV, that started as a stop on the Camden Interstate Railway. It has a number of vintage rides and a retro feel that families love for the nostalgia.

What many people don’t know is that it’s also an ancient burial ground.

Although it seems a little spooky to us now, the mounds were never meant to be threatening. They were built as a way to honor the Adena people’s most respected leaders, much like the ancient Egyptian pyramids.
