Old Aldridge Mill Site
February 26, 2011
The name Old Aldridge has been a name that was basically synonymous with the idea of Halloween, haunted houses, and satanic rituals here in Zavalla. I am pretty sure most of it is just ghost stories but I am sure some evil has been done down in the old remains of the saw mill. Whatever the case is, the idea of it all has kept me far from it all my thirty years of living in the small town of Zavalla. That is until today.
As we walked up to the old mill the huge structures loomed in the distance, visually living up to the idea of ghost town.
Demonic graffiti littered the towering walls.
Trees grew in what used to be the floor of the building giving it almost a court yard appearance.
In another building, many of the walls had been busted out. From what I understand, to remove machinery that was in side the building when the mill closed down. All these window were about four feet off the ground so Adam decided that the only way his Grammy would be able to get out of the building without going back the way they came was to crawl through a small two foot opening that was ground level. My mom is pretty spry for her age and gracefully descended out of one of the windows, much to Adam’s disappointment, I believe he would have enjoyed seeing his Grammy crawling out on hands and knees like he did.
The third building still had a roof intact and was extremely dark. As soon as you walk up to the door you can feel to coldness coming from this room. All playing in with the spookiness that so many have labeled this place with. I can see Adam through the small hole in the back of the building.
Using the camera flash this time we can see more demonic graffiti has been disgracefully applied to the walls.
Past the buildings were remains of a wall and concrete pier looking things with bolts attached to the top. Apparently some machinery was fastened to them.
My mom had worked for the forestry service and knew some of the history of the place and acted as our tour guide.
Now that I have visited the place, my wariness of it is greatly diminished. It is just a interesting piece of History that I foolishly avoided due to silly stories people made up so they can have the thrill of being scared.
Before leaving, I yelled a hardy “IN THE NAME OF JESUS!” into the dark cold building, which of course impressed my children. My nephew ‘B’ laughed and said “Aunt Becky, you should have seen all those things flying out of the back of that building.” We all have a good laugh and Adam goes about rebuking demons from every other building, “IN THE NAME OF JESUS!”
Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; …
