Ghost of Medix

You can’t have a good ghost story without an old building with lots of history. The Medix Hotel was built in 1896 and has many secrets, if you dare!

Legends of Lost Gold

This lost gold legend dates back to the Civil War. A 150+ year old secret, worth $20 million, is believed to lie somewhere in the Dents Run area of Elk County.
