I have lived very close to Athens, TX for 13 years in the nearby town of Mabank (We are about an hour SE of Dallas, Athens is about an hour and 20 min). I began hearing the rumors and stories when I was in junior high, and I can vouch for the rest of the people on here in that YES, they are all TRUE.

I have been an amateur paranormal investigator for several years and have visited Fullers Park on many occasions both during the day and at night. My friends and I have taken over a hundred pictures inside the park and the surrounding area. In one of our photographs of the monkey cage, we counted over 100 orbs, and they did not look happy...

I could go on and on about all the legends of the area and of course the hot spot Fullers Park in particular, maybe another time, but I will say that I have for sure never been as scared in my life as I was the night me and my best friend went in there late one summer night in June 2003. We were walking down the trail and had just gotten past the graves a ways when we both heard something and stopped dead in our tracks. We immediately started shining our 5cell maglights all over the adjacent tree line. We distinctly heard loud heavy footsteps coming toward us in the woods, but whatever it was was walking on 2 feet because it only took 1 distinct step at a time, and it moved very slow as if it was trying to sneak up on us. It was so quiet that night you could have heard a pin drop, so we immediately zoned in on where it was coming from. What was so scary was that it was that the sound was so close to us that we could have almost reached out and touched whatever or whoever it was, but yet we never saw a thing. We stood there for several minutes shining our lights all over the place, listening to its steps get closer and closer to us. It must have been only 10-15 feet away from us tops, but we never saw so much as a leaf move. Needless to say we took off running back up that hill just as fast as we could, jumped in the car, and hauled ass out there.

To this day I have never been back. I can also say that I have seen the devil worshipers come out of the woods with my own eyes, and they had some kind of dead animal strapped to a gurney type cart thing. Fullers Park is pure evil and something is seriously wrong about Athens, Texas...

I lived there briefly with my dad where i made a few friends who all said the exact same. That there were devil worshiping cults and witches everywhere. I never saw it first hand but we went to the local legend there called the Elephant Graveyard or Fullers Park. It was the site of a circus some time ago and if you go in there are cages for animals and such still inside, kind of fun. Just wanted to mention that the town is full of local urban legends. People say if you go way back into Fullers Park thats where the rituals and junk are held.

on the subject of satan worshipping and Texas, has anyone seen the 1975 film "Race with the Devil", starring Peter Fonda and the late, great Warren Oates? It's just recently been released on dvd in the U.S., and it deals with a vacationing couple driving through the backwoods of Texas only to encounter a pack of Devil-worshippers. A great film, full of shocks and paranoia. One of my desert island picks; check it out! Selah

Devil worship and Wicca are not the same at all. Wiccan don't even believe the devil exists. According to the Wiccan Rede (one of the highest Wiccan codes of behavior) "'An it harm none, do what ye will". In other words, Do what you please as long as it doesn't hurt anyone. If you do some research you'll find that Wiccans place a lot of emphasis on peace and respect for others. (here's a good link: http://www.witchway.net/wicca/what1.html)
Also, the pentagram in itself is not evil: only when misguided people use it for evil.

I myself am not a Wiccan, but I AM a pagan, and it bothers me when we pagans are confused with the evil associated with devil worship. Technically Satanists are a Christian sect, because they have splintered off of Christianity by choosing to follow the devil instead of God. However, they still acknowledge the existance of the christian God, they have just chosen to follow his nemesis.

As a college student in Athens, I've never encountered or heard of any of the supernatural goings on of Fuller Park, and I live on campus. I have heard of the pipes and the road (the Loop is finished, by the way, so the pentagram is complete), and that is actually what I was searching for when I found this page. However, I asked my fiance about it (he's been here for one more semester than I) and he rattled off all the stories, and some about our friends and they things they've encountered there. I have to say, in the hour I've been researching it I've found about three different versions of the story of the monkey cages, and while I don't think any one of those stories is very factual, I do think there's something terribly wrong about that place. I've always been sensitive to emotions and auras, but in Athens (probably because of the pentagram under it tongue.gif ) I've been even more sensitive. I keep getting awful migraine-like headaches, and there didn't seem to be any cause for them. But as soon as I started hearing these stories, I knew. The stories themselves may not be very true, but the sick feeling in my guts when I hear the phrases "Fuller Park" and "monkey cages" is. Something awful happened in that park, and I have no desire to find out what.  no.gif

Most Satanists are atheists. They don't worship some red-skinned guy with cloven hoves and a pitchfork.

I don't think any of these "The Vague Society of Nebulous Meanies are going to take over the world and light up a planet" theories worry too much about practical considerations like that. It's all about rousing ill-informed, paranoiac fear, not making sense.

Why don't they just close off all the tunnel entrances, and post a don't tresspass sign and tell them a Huge fine will be leveled against anyone breaking those rules and I bet this will put a stop to the locals trying to hold Seances and things, and possibly doing a little witchcraft to scare each other.

  Teens for example like to gather at these places, drink and do ugly things and try to scare up some mysterious forces.

  People need to realize that they don't have to participate in these things at all because the Spirit World is all around us and spirits can visit us whether we do these rituals or not if they want to.

     Its possible that some ghosts or spirits seeing what is going on might decide to do a little fun of their own and scare the daylights out of those doing these things.

First, welcome to UM! thumbsup.gif Second, I agree with you totally. Wiccan is not the "sinister" spiritual path that some make it out to be. People that say that don't know ANYTHING about it. Wiccans don't even believe in the devil, or demons! angry.gif

Wiccans follow their own path and believe in what they think is right. There are no rules to follow as some other religions. The only thing that might be considered a "rule" is ...
Do what you will, and harm none.
Harm none! How can that be sinister???

Not all who wander are lost.
