Lake Vesuvius

WHERE : Latitude :38.615045, Longitude :-82.624629


WHAT HAPPENED: There are several ghost stories and legends connected to the area, the first being directly related to the furnace, which is still standing. While the furnace was in operation, it was reported that workers encountered the Devil himself in human form. The Devil blocked the path daily, and so disturbed the workers, that the owners were forced to hire in a priest. The priest is reported as asking the Devil, "What in the name of God do you want " The Devil either did not respond, or no answer was ever recorded. For more sightings of the Devil in and around Lawrence Co. Furnances, please see this link! It seems as if the year 1875 was quite an interesting time for people of this area.
