It's been called to my attention, several times, by Michael P., that a certain old entry on NEPABlog has had a bit of a stir over time.
I feel I must clarify that the reason that all the comments read the same date is not a paranormal mystery, it's called bad coding on my part. Sorry.
The blog post refers to an old article in the Scranton Times Tribune from Halloween 2002. (Note: Much more appropriate than the W-B witches article really! I don't know why the Times Leader didn't hold off on that story another month!)
I have a friend who lives near Olyphant, and works in Olyphant, and he seems to think there might be something special about the area. But this friend thinks a lot of things, including the benefit of some arcane forms of public meditation.
I don't understand the pyramid connection. Though maybe that was explained in the "original map", which is now a 404 error. (Not my fault, that was a file of Michael P.) Or maybe the guy really was referring to the old mine culm bank.
The fact that there's a ton of churches in Olyphant... The truth is, almost all very old small towns in Northeastern Pennsylvania boast many churches and many taverns. A church and a bar on every corner is part of life in small town NEPA.
Here are some photos I took last month in Olyphant...
I updated the photo-link in the comments section, but am unable to edit the original post...
Anyway, here it is.

Miss Chloe: could you please provide direct URL's to other blogs/webpages related to this topic? Thank you!

Provide "direct URLs"? What does that mean?
And what do I look like Google here? haha. I'm not an expert on Olyphant, nor am I an expert on paranormal activities in Olyphant, or anywhere else, nor am I a fountain of links on the topic. haha.

Actually, Chloe, in certain lights (& when you wear that one sweater), you do look an awful lot like Google....
