The Historic Layton Tunnel & Bridge
.5 miles away

HAUNT ALERT!

A former rail tunnel and bridge. Both date back to 1899 and were abandoned for rail use in 1931. In 1933 they were converted to automobile use and connect Layton and Perryopolis, PA (Buffalo Bill’s House) via a one-lane tunnel & bridge. The Layton Bridge is a Pratt truss bridge over The Youghiogheny River in Layton, Pennsylvania. The trusses are of an unusual design with the roadway running through the middle of the truss instead of along the bottom, giving it the appearance of both a deck truss and thru truss when viewed from the river or the GAP trail. However, this does not mark the end of this amazing crossing. Once across the bridge, the journey continues through a tunnel carved out of the hillside. This is the only known combination of metal truss bridge and tunnel in vehicular use in Pennsylvania.

It was filmed as part of “Fire in the Hole”, the pilot episode of the television series “Justified”, and was seen in the movie “The Silence of the Lambs.” Most recently “Sweet Girl”, a Netflix feature thriller starring Jason Mamoa was filmed here as well!

Legend has that at night people have heard loud noises and screams come from the tunnel. Sometimes they even hear whispers.

When you come to visit Buffalo Bill’s House, you will have to pass through this very tunnel! It is quite spooky at night time! Trust us, we know!

Bring your bikes & hiking boots because “Buffalo Bill’s House” is located near the The Great Allegheny Passage at mile marker 102. Just outside the Layton Tunnel, you’ll find a side street that will take you to a parking lot to explore the GAP!

The Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) is a rail trail that offers 150 miles of hiking and biking from Maryland to Pennsylvania—the central trail of a network of long-distance hiker-biker trails throughout the Allegheny region of the Appalachian Mountains, connecting Washington, D.C. to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Great Allegheny Passage soars over valleys, snakes around mountains, and skirts alongside three rivers (the Casselman, Youghiogheny, and Monongaleha) on its nearly level path. Cyclists pass through the Cumberland Narrows, cross the Mason-Dixon Line, top the Eastern Continental Divide at 2,392’, weave through the breathtaking Laurel Highlands, wind their way through the 20,633-acre Ohiopyle State Park, journey through the region’s coke, coal, mining, and steel-making corridor, and end at Pittsburgh’s majestic Point State Park.

Providence Quaker Cemetery and Chapel
4.1 miles away

HAUNT ALERT!

This historic landmark located two miles southwest of Perryopolis, PA is one of the few remaining Quaker meeting houses still standing in the U.S. This 20 x 30 feet sandstone structure was built in 1895 using the stone from a much larger building that was on the property before that. Membership in the church had dwindled to the point that this facility was only needed as a memorial chapel for family members when visiting the cemetery. There is said to be approximately 500 people buried here but only 193 graves are documented. It used to be Quaker tradition to not mark graves in the early days. To further add to the rich history of this place. the 1,300 acres of farmland surrounding the property was once owned by General George Washington, the future President. The grain that grew on his land was used in his gristmill in nearby Perryopolis which still stands. Currently the cemetery property consists of one acre surrounded surrounded by an iron fence and then a chain link fence on the perimeter by Quaker Church Road.

According to urban legend this small cemetery which dates back to the early 1700’s and was founded by the Quaker pioneers, was once used as a spot for the practice of black magic, as well as a place to kill those believed to be witches . Today many people believe the cemetery is haunted by dark spirits, as a result of this. This location is known as one of the most haunted places in southwest Pennsylvania, and as such, the visiting hours are limited to only 9 AM to 5 PM.
