The Quaker church

The Quaker church

BY: Christopher Rogue Ostrowski

on Quaker Church Road in Perryopolis Pa., contains multiple different ghost stories. Now Quaker Church was founded by none other than a bunch of Quakers in the 1700’s. It was a sight where they killed supposed witches and where others practiced black magic later. The hellhound that haunts the church is just one legend.

Supposedly, past investigators have talk to people that have driven or walked past the church. One even stated that he hit a big black dog and it rolled up his hood and over his car. The dog got up and started chasing the car, It is stated that the Dog kept up with the car. But, once he cleared the church it had disappeared.

There are many more “Legends” about this once, a Quaker Church. One is that inside there is believed to a written description on the wall about how someone, a supposed witch was killed and if you read, that’s how you die. There is graffiti, quite a bit. It looks as if there “Satanists” and “Devil Worshipers” there at one time.***

Now there is an old tombstone that glows, supposedly There is a very creepy inscription on it,

A similar Inscription can be seen at The church of Sta. Maria Novella, in Florence. There is a fresco by Masaccio, “The Trinity” (ca. 1427). Below the fresco is a skeleton in the wall, with the epitaph, “io fu gia quel che voi siete e quel chio son voi anco sarete” (“I was once that which you are, and what I am you also will be”).
But this inscription is Americanized and says:
“Remember youth as you go by. As you are now so once was I. As I am now so you shall be. Prepare for death and follow me.”

The “legend” says if you sit on the tombstone when it’s glowing and read the inscription you and everyone you’re with will die. I don’t know if it’s true,

*** Probably just kids out for kicks. No respectable Satanist, Luciferian or “Devil Worshiper” would destroy a place like that
