Where is this place?.|

The local newspaper did a story on that place back in the late 80s. The pictures showed a charred area where animal sacrifice took place with satanic graffiti. At night you could see a bonfire of sort illuminating the sky from Farmington Road. We parked at the foot of the entrance and walked around the building. After we got back in the car we were chased at a high rate of speed by what seemed like a pick-up truck with its lights on high beam. We heard gunshots, and we ducked all the way to Farmington Road. The truck didn't pursue us from that point. This was back in 1990-91.

Stone church - twenty miles outside of Peoria has some strange unexplained lights around it. No one who travels out to check it out stays very long. You get a very uncomfortable feeling. Last place you would want to have a flat tire and be stranded.
It was a rumor one time that it was the sight of devil worshipping. I never look at the old church when I have to pass it on the old road. Creeps me out - too many shadows. Churches are not usually creepy but that one is.|
I would like to know the story on it.

Comment by John: The area is haunted, I saw an entire ghost family there in the middle of the road about 50 ft past the church. This was over 20 years ago. Yes there were rumors of devil worshipping going on back then too. I have been behind the church and really didn't experience anything.
Comment by Lori: Is the church the Lourdes Church? I've been to that church and felt there was someone standing next to me when it was just me outside.
