    Basically take Douglas Road North passed 63rd street. There is a curve at the end of the road. You won't miss it. The church is just around that corner on your right side.

    I googled the location and got a map. I'm having trouble getting it to this message board, but I'll keep trying.

    EDIT:

    On google maps the closest I can get is Douglass BLVD. just north of 63rd. There is a curve, at that point Douglass turns into E. Wilshire. From there I'm unable to see much that would resemble a concrete slab, but google only lets me zoom in so far.

    thanks for the descriptions... i poked around on live maps' bird's eye view and google's street view and didn't see anything that stuck out. so i'm guessing that this is an old church whose foundation is left? i saw an urban spelunking site that showed some concrete drainage looking thing... not sure if this is the same place... pretty interesting stuff!

    drove by this evening what was earlier referred to as the "witch's arrow"... basically the thing is a 30-50 foot tall arrow made out of corrugated sheet metal... given the construction, i'd have to guess that it was built in the 50's to early 60's. the surrounding area seems to have electric poles going to nowhere which leads me to believe that this could have been a long since failed subdivision or something... but i don't think the arrow dates from the turn of the century or anything... at least that's not what it looked like. still really interesting, though... i'd love to figure out the history behind the arrow and who built it and why.

    I have a "ghost story" for you from Hope Hall. First, just to set the record straight, the criminally insane were actually housed in the west wing on the 3rd floor. I worked all those 3rd floor wings though and they were all a little scary.
    Anyway, they closed that unit and opened an adolescent unit up there. I was working up there one cold winter night with another man. A teenage girl was in one of the rooms and seemed to be hallucinating severely. She was screaming "Help me, there's a demon outside the window!" We were on the 3rd floor of a building in the middle of the night and we knew there was nothing outside her window. The windows all had a very thick metal screen on the inside to keep anyone from getting to the glass. My co-worker and I went to check on her and the second we opened her door the glass in the window shattered. Talk about spooky! There is no way she could have broken that glass. Besides, she wasn't even by the window. There was no one outside, it was the middle of the night in winter. We finally convinced ourselves the glass broke from pressure because it was so cold, but......

    I guess it could have been the pressure, but that's still weird.

    Go to Google Maps and search 14316 SW 59th Street, OKC to catch a daytime photo.

    Then of course, there's the old Mental Home or Orphanage, can't remember which one, in Guthrie.
    Is that the same house where those 2 guys took that girl and killed her a while back?

    [QUOTE=Toadrax;156533]...there are no such thing as ghosts.

    Now what fun would that be.

    As a kid we believed. My own encounter: About 7 yrs old sleeping on the living room couch, me one end my big sister the other... door open, summer night, crickets churping, breezes coming in through the old screen door. Big trees surrounded our house on N Park Place... I could hear only those sounds, no one breathing, no floor boards creeking, no movement in the house, my sister fast asleep. Now, she did like to play tricks on me but this night I was listening intently because as I lay there my pillow was being pulled from beneath my head, slowly, steadily, pulled away. but nothing to tell me who or what. I was so scared I made myself go to sleep..! Next day no one would own up and I can't remember ever finding the pillow again. The only thing my 7yr old mind could come up with was it was a ghost. My grown up mind doesn't come up with any other answer either...

    Our family has lots of ghost stories, a handful my granny used to tell of my ancesters crossing the prairie, like when they heard the chains rattling outside but no one there... and she always told they were really true.

    Purple church is not spooky this place is evil. Here is a pic of the lake where most of the satanic activites occured. It is alleged they had a blood machine aka a chipper that was used to terrorize indivduals.

    I've been to the Arrow at night. Very creepy. What I heard was that it was some kind of camp--long since abandoned. Since then it had been used for satanic rituals, torture, murder, the usual stuff, lol...

    Sorry mmm. I had tried to find the area on google maps but it I couldn't figure out where it could be in relation to what I was seeing on the map. I found it again, this time looking for the lake. It's very interesting and if I was still in OKC I'd love to run by there, in the daytime of course. I can't imagine why a church would be that far off of any road.

    I also think that the fact that there are only a few pictures of the place from a ghost hunting website makes it even more interesting. Either it is a very dangerous place to go where strange inbreds threaten you to take no pictures or a complete urban legend. You'd think if it was simply an urban legend someone would have more photographic evidence of the "ruins". Instead we are left with a few pictures of a burned down "church" basement.

    edit: you are right. I didn't even notice the 5th wheel the first time a round. From the look of it it's a very well kept trailer. Interesting.

    The word church refers to more of a location than a building per say. Just east of Douglas Blvd on NE Wilshire (south side of the road) is or was a gate (have not been there in years). It had purple painted cinderblock bases with metal bars coming out of the base and making a crossbar. There were wire noose's where birds, rabbits and other small animals would be strung up to let the knowing passerbys would get their ritual information. Grew up in that area and heard all the so called news. Moved away and haven't thought about it in years. The color purple is an important color in that realm of life.

    what I think is spooky in the old plantation home in moore, rumors is that slaves where hung from the oak tree and burried all over the property, the old house is still standing, the land just sold an they are building a neighborhood around it, the house is in moore between 12ths street and 4th street on bryant, closer to 4th street on the west side, i drove by the house and it is spooky, i think kids play pranks because there is ropes hanging in the trees.. But why build a neighborhood and leave a 100 plus old house standing in the midst, its kinda like edward scissorhands, new homes with a histroic home on top the hill.. very spooky..

    not 100% sure that i'm looking at the same place as you... from your description i found a parcel of land on the west side of bryant between main and ne 6th. if that's the right place, the cleveland county assessor's site shows that the property has been divided into individual lots for development as part of the adjoining subdivision.

    i agree. i'm thinking that the word 'church' is just part of the story that the location is used for satanic ritual rather than being the ruins of an actual church building. it's pretty tough to sort out the fact from the fiction here.

    this is far from anything resembling conclusive evidence but my mom grew up north of 63rd on air depot and she doesn't remember there being a church in this area. basically just a scattering of farm homes.

    I forgot about the dead animals being strung up on the fences at the purple church. Yeah, that was creepy. There were also stakes around the fence made of wood that were mostly upside down crosses - bloody. There was a building there during the 80's and 90's in which their rituals were held, probably there earlier than that but that's the times I remember. That's why we called it a "church". It was small, not sure if it was a barn or stable, or what exactly the building was but you couldn't see it all the time. Very strange.
    Also, on occasion there would be a couple of guys guarding the entrance with shotguns. Not sure if these were the nights they were actually worshiping or what was going on, we just always thought it was weird. There would be an old pickup that would follow you to make sure you kept driving.
