I really think it's fake. I lived in Athens, Texas for years and never, never heard of such. The court yard square only has chickens running about.

There are some weird people that walk around and dress very strange, but other than that, Athens people wouldn't have any ghost things to ruin their town's name.

If there were underground tunnels, Willy Nelson would have smoked in them :tsu: and they would still be a secret. :lol:

Here ya go guys!!! It's not perfect, but I tried!

This is fact. I live in Athens, Texas and there is a lot of talk about Fuller’s Park. My brother and I plan to tackle the myth by going in the tunnels, but I want to know if any one has heard of other places like this.

Here is the story of Athens: See back in its making Athens was supposed to have been over run with witchcraft. The town killed a supposed witch, but she really was a witch and before she died she put a curse on Athens that keeps bad weather away even tornadoes, floods and major fires. This does not sound like a curse to me but that’s what they say and this may not be true but I live here and there have been two tornadoes in Athens. Later in Athens a preacher erected the first Baptist church of Athens. My church’s preacher is Mr. Fuller who erected Fullers Park were he is buried. He is supposedly evil because he beat his wife and the monkeys who he owned and is said to have molested at this time.

They had also built a bomb shelter under the courthouse and they built tunnels with five different entrances and a loop that connects them. This is to make a pentagram they go all the way across from point to point. The preacher Mr. Fuller went out after this was completed to let out his monkeys and its said they went crazy and killed him. He is buried in Fullers Park and is supposed to haunt it. His wife died shortly after he did and is also buried there and is also supposed to haunt the park. The road next to the abandoned park is called Monkey Road because it is said that the monkeys still live in the trees and throw stuff at you as you drive by.

Now I know what you would say, monkeys from the 1800's wouldn’t be alive still but this is what they said and what makes it seem fake is that there was male and a female monkey. One female monkey was the one who Mr. Fuller molested and if I were a molested monkey who also went crazy and killed someone I would not think a multiplying. <---What???? Another thing is that if you park on the side of the road and put your keys on the hood you will see monkey paws heading directly to the keys and if you don’t grab them the monkey ghost will take them and hide them in the woods. Well that’s the story and sorry for the spelling. Hit me up with some info and comments and if you want to talk directly my email is

Hello Factoid -- and welcome to UM. Don't take too much notice of the *few* posters who have not been very nice in replying to your post. You will find that most folks here are quite easy to get along with. :)

Regards Fullers Park in Athens Texas, where you live: I came across some websites (see below) that you may like to read. I hope that information helps you in your search. :tu:

Happy searching, and let us know what you find,

Underground Tunnel Network An interesting urban legend of Athens, TX is that there is an underground tunnel system directly under the city. The legend is that the tunnels are in the shape of a pentagram and each of the five entrances into the tunnel system are marked by the points of the pentagram, with the courthouse being at the center of the star. > read more here

Fuller Family Cemetery is located within Fuller Park, which is located off Gibson road in Athens, Texas. The two people buried here are enclosed with an iron gate with a large iron fence around them. The only visible graves are that of Medford Lee Fuller (1875-1944) and his wife Virginia McClelland Fuller (? -1938). Fuller park as been shrouded with mystery ever since Mr. Fuller erected the park in 1938 (after the death of Virginia Fuller). Fuller Park is said to house one of the five entrances to the underground network of tunnels that reside under the city of Athens, Texas. Rumors regarding Fuller Park are in great abundance. They range between entrances into a tunnel system all the way to the "virgin stone" fence that surrounds the park. > story here
