WELCOME TO SILENT HILL NEWRY, SC Hey all, Well, this past weekend me and the boys took a trip down to Newry S.C. to see the boys' mom. Newry doesn't show up on the GPS, it's not so much a town as a village. We got down there near midnight on Friday, and going down the skinny winding roads brought forth that creepy feeling I tend to get in small towns. By the light of day, the next morning, the town shed most of it's creepiness and became a very quant, very old community that really was quite charming. We were shown around the town that day, the highlight of which was the old cotton mill. Now, I've been playing a lot of the Silent Hill series lately, and that mill... well... here's some pictures RIGHT HERE. Suffice it to say, I wouldn't go there at night. We went all over the mill, all the way up to the roof, being careful not to step in holes that dropped into darkness, and watching our footing on the steps. The mill was built in the 1890's and was functional until sometime in the 1970's. The town of Newry is trying to buy the mill back from it's current owners and keep it up as a historical site. My oldest son has been busy drawing pictures of "the haunted house" since we got back. It really was extremely cool, and so rich with that spooooky atmosphere that I'm sure it'll show up in a dream or two in the future. Just thought I'd share, I kept the pictures pretty small, so sorry about the low resolution. If you're ever near Clemson, South Carolina, the place is WELL worth a look.
