Re: Centralia, PA: Town That Inspired Silent Hill

I happened to visit Centralia yesterday (August 10, 2013). The lots were mostly overgrown, and garbage was strewn absolutely everywhere. There were still a couple of houses where people were living, but any abandoned structures like the ones seen in previous years were completely gone. Most of the side streets were still drivable, though some had overgrown to the point where it was only possible to walk.

It seems that most of the venting gases have abated, substantially. I saw no venting at all, actually, at least in the town proper and on the abandoned section of Highway 61. The local cemeteries, which had previously lacked in upkeep due to the gases, were in very good shape. The stone walls had been rebuilt, and the plots were all properly mowed and trimmed. There were burials in St. Ignatius Cemetery as recent as 2012, so that one, at least, is still in use.

Highway 61 was not what I expected. It is cracked up and rolls severely in some places. It was the graffiti that caught me by surprise. It was tagged from one end to the other. There were people tagging it and drinking as I was walking down the road. Of course, just like in town, there was garbage strewn everywhere. It seems the entire area has become the local illegal garbage dump.

All and all, it was a pretty cool experience. I wish there had been some abandoned structures to explore or hidden treasures lying in the jingweeds, but I'll have to do with some pictures. I also tried to find a little hamlet called Byrnesvile, which was located just south of Centralia on Highway 61, but the town was literally reduced to a short dirt road, a ripped-up mattress, and some sketchy old guy drinking beers in a pick-up truck. Suffice to say, we didn't stick around for pictures.

Re: Centralia, PA: Town That Inspired Silent Hill

Cool, Cumulonimbus

How are you

It would be a cool place for all the Pennsylvanians who get along with me to meet there

And any nearby states like Virginia and Connecticut. You know who you are!

Road trip

Didn't Bob Dylan have an album called, "Highway 61 Revisited?"

I'm doing just fine, ds. Nice to hear from you!

Yah, Centralia was pretty cool. It was interesting to walk around that little piece of wasteland knowing that at one time it was a bustling coal town. I was recently in another ghost town in northeastern Oklahoma called Picher. That was even cooler, since many structures will still standing. I'll have to get off of my ass and post the pictures, sometime.

Centralia, Pennsylvania (silent Hill Town)

Centralia is a borough and a near ghost town in Columbia County, Pennsylvania, United States. Its population has dwindled from over 1,000 residents in 1981 to 10 in 2010,[2] as a result of a mine fire burning beneath the borough since 1962. Centralia is the least-populated municipality in Pennsylvania.
Centralia is part of the Bloomsburg-Berwick micropolitan area. The borough is completely surrounded by Conyngham Township.
All properties in the borough were claimed under eminent domain by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1992 (and all buildings therein were condemned), and Centralia's ZIP code was revoked by the Postal Service in 2002.[3] State and local officials reached an agreement with the seven remaining residents on October 29, 2013 allowing them to live out their lives there, after which the rights of their properties will be taken through eminent domain.
