Lake Shawnee Amusement Park
There’s a reason why this amusement park is abandoned; because it’s cursed. This plot of land had the dual history of being both the scene of a pioneer massacre in 1783 and a Native American burial ground. Ignoring that history, an amusement park was built in 1926 to cater to the families of local coal workers. There was a carnival, water rides, a dance hall and concession stands.
However, the land wasn’t done. After two kids died, the park was closed in 1966, and sat idle until 1985, when the site was purchased and the park was reopened. It lasted 3 years and was abandoned.
