CornStalkers Trail of Terror
11765 Saint Linus Drive, Waldorf, MD 20602
Located in a rural part of Maryland in the heart of Charles County lies a deeply disturbing history that very few know anything about. It is said the very land that now occupies the Stadium itself, was once many many acres of cornfields and farmland owned by a Mr Graves in the early 1930’s.
Each year as the fall harvesting season came about, many of the locals would routinely help pitch in to help Mr Graves who had lost his entire family on that very farm. A gruesome scene that still stands unexplained today of exactly how they were murdered while in the fields working. Mr Graves was never suspected of being involved after that tragedy had unfolded, however, the locals assisting on that farm each fall harvest after the murders began to simply disappear one by one. As the years went by and the suspicion grew stronger, it is said that Mr Graves set his home on fire while still inside. His cries of horror were heard by locals trying to locate him within but his body was never found.
To this very day little details are known about the truth of what happened in those fields. However, one thing is for certain as each fall harvest season comes around there are unexplained occurrences and phenomena within the stadium walls themselves. Are these events each harvest season a mere coincidence or something much more disturbing... come see for yourself and we will see you inside!
