    Need a bit of help asap

    Going back at 8 am...any info would be great.

    Less that 200 yards away from a civil war fort on top of a huge hill I found these next to the rail road tracks. They look rather old but I'm really not sure. I didn't get time to look real close because it started storming. Any idea what these are? They look like round houses to me lol

    Not to mention the big brick walls in the creek and also the "brick bridge".

    Here is some text explaining a building I came across a while back that looks very close to that. Not sure that it helps but here ya go.
    Built by Albert H. Johnson, president of the Oberlin Gas Lighting Company, to store coal gas that was manufactured in an adjacent retort with a brick smokestack now demolished. This gas was first used for lighting (Oberlin was the first town in the area to enjoy gas-lit streets) and beating and later for cook stoves. The company provided gas for heating until 1918, when natural gas became available, and since then the building has had various uses, primarily storage. Planning for an Underground Railroad Center in the building began in 2005. A surviving example of nineteenth-century functionalism, round brick with conical slate roof.

    No matter what, there were obviously people there, probably working and getting PAID. Go dig the heck outta some of their lost paychecks, It looks VERY promising. I doubt it's as old as civil war, but silver was minted up 'til '64, and I dare say those structures are a might older than that. Go forth and dig, my son(and post the pics of the finds, or we may have to hurt you).
    I noticed that no-one really utilizes all the signature space provided, so I figured to be REALLY original I would make up the longest signature that I could and probably just leave it as one big run on sentence because all that punctuation just takes up way too much space-HH.

    Your third picture down looks like whatever it was it produced a lot of smoke. Quite the chimney.

    Variation on a lime kiln?









    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Pretty darn cool... I'd be taking pictures like Gyspsy suggested, and hunting the heck out if it after I got permission... ncie looking prospects.

    Looking forward to more pics and whatever you find there in future posts!

    This is a photo of kilns at the Trimble Ohio Brick Plant(taken somewhere between 1900 and 1920)
    What you have found looks very similar.

    Re: Need a bit of help asap

    I take pix around my house at night occasionally....I get orbs like that....they are not "rain", nor "snowflakes", nor "dust".

    Considering they are circular in nature, and appear to be quite large in size, in order for a dust mote to appear that big, it would have to be ON the lens of my camera, and I keep my camera lense clean. Also many of the orbs were obviously 15 to 20 feet away, sometimes halfway behind my storage shed, or behind telephone lines or tree branches.

    I took these pics when it was NOT cloudy, and there was no rain, sleet, drizzle, fog, etc. As for snowflakes, I seriously doubt snowflakes can exist in my area when the temperature is over 40 degrees.
    I was outside taking some flash photos of the forest one night last fall...my dog was barking at a gully in front of my house, and a flash at night will illuminate any "eyes" peering at ya from the darkness. There were instances where I would take pix of the area in front of my house, and see a pair of eyes up in a tree 100 feet away...pretty cool technique for "illuminating" wildlife at night haha.

    Anyway, there were numerous orbs hanging around. I would take a photo while looking at the area directly in front of the camera...not looking at the LCD, or through the viewfinder....there would be nothing at all in front of the camera, but the image would show differently. Many times I would take a photo of nothing, and look at the image after the fact, and have several orbs at various distances, and/or of various sizes.

    I have no idea what they are, but I do know for a fact what they are not.


    Nice thread for a paranormal forum..

    I like those pics, looks like an interesting place. I'd definately go back.

    As for the last pic with the "orbs" those are not orbs. You can see the wetness on the ground and in the 3rd pic you can see the water drops dripping off the branches. The orbs are actually just rain drops. The bright droplet at the top center of the pic with the tail underneath makes it look like it's shooting UP, that's a big indication of moisture whether it be rain or snow they always look like they are shooting upwards. I have done a lot of experiments with digital pics under different conditions and know for sure that these spots are just moisture/raindrops, I'm a 100% positive.
    I don't wanna step on anyones toes when it comes to the paranormal as I am new here and this forum isnt about the paranormal, but I have been doing a lot of research in that field for over 4 yrs. Im no expert or anything close to an expert but do know that a true orb has a lot of energy making it semi solid to solid in appearance, bright in color and no internal ridges or nucleus. If it looks like it has inside structures like layers and or a smaller circle (nucleus) then it's more than likely to be dirt, dust, polen or moisture.
