In Columbia County, Pennsylvania, there’s a near-ghost town called Centralia that is often considered the creepiest place in the United States. From 1981 to 2013, its population has gone from over 1,000 to just 7 due to the mine fire that’s been burning underneath the borough for more than 50 years. In the video you’re about to see, some filmmakers visited Centralia… and it’s one you’ve got to see.

Centralia was the inspiration for the movie and video game, Silent Hill. Have you ever been to Centralia? Share this unique place in Pennsylvania by hitting the button below.
