    My grandparents and father are from Centralia. My daughter would like to visit. I don’t think anything would happen but I am not sure that it is worth the risk. I visited when I was younger, back in the early 80s I guess. It was really sad. My grandparents were very poor when they lived there. My grandfather worked in the mines. It wasn’t a place that held good memories for them. I’m not sure allowing my daughter to visit with her friends(all good kids) is a good idea. Yes, her family history can be traced there but I don’t think that she will appreciate the tragedy of it all.

      Hello, I am doing a project on Centralia and were wondering if interviewing you would be something you would be interested. My email is so if you are interested or have any info it would be great if you contacted.

      Just like to say the land down the road will be worth more then you will ever imagine. Someday you will have a Diamond mine. If I was the original owners of land I would demand to have rights to minerals, gases, oil, diamonds And anything that’s under your land. You do have that right and should have been given that right when land was takin from them. Pennsylvania Is Setting On a money making in the near future!

      She might not but maybe she is Just interested in looking but really to be safe I would really only consider the very edges of it. And car A good 10 15 feet away from where signs were or warning areas. And if she j
      Has A balance they could use A helicopter for to grab onto. But then there is the smoke. But the ground giving in wit out any sign of weakness.

    What is the best way to enter Centralia? I know most of the major highways are closed or rerouted.

    Dude said diamonds in the near future… Better guess again, unless you think 10,000 + years is “the near future”
