Previously, the road was simply called by what it truly is an old, abandoned section of Route 61. A piece of Route 61 just south of the town had to be closed in the early 1990s. The mine fire in Centralia Pennsylvania posed a real threat to the structural integrity of it. Subsidence was leading to uneven surfaces and steam poured out through cracks in the asphalt.

PennDOT bypassed this section of Route 61 with an improved portion of Byrnesville Road. After it was upgraded, the bypass adopted the name Route 61, and the old section of the road was left to the elements.

For some time, no one gave much thought to visiting the nearly one mile long abandoned stretch of Route 61. However, as Centralia began to develop a following online, more curious onlookers explored the town.

One of the results was that some people found and used the open road surface as a canvas. They brought cans of spray paint and began to design on its surface.

This inspired still other Centralia PA visitors to test their artistic skills. No one knows for sure exactly when the graffiti began on the road, but it appears to have accelerated sometime after 2007. This may have had to do with the film Silent Hill coming out the year before.

There's a camp ground near Knoebels we usually park the Trailer, called J&D Campground. I'm going to call them this week and see what dates they have open in June then I'll post them and see if anyone can make it. They don't have Cabins there but there is another campground owned by Knoebels call Lake Glory which does have Cabins available. The larger ones are around $260 per night which sleeps 8 to 10 people.

If that doesn't work out for you guys we can always do something later in the Summer.

Thanks for doing all the good research Shark.
I am thinking that Ruger and the Buckeye bunch are not going to be able to do a weekend trip like in the past...but I hope they can make it. I suppose we should plan something ourselves and leave room for more to attend.

I have to get dates cleared with the wife since her schedule is much more restrictive than mine. We have been to those campsites and Cabins before so I am fine with either option. I know they have a public shower and bathrooms as well as a small pool.

I am hoping to get a decent amount of people to show up and enjoy the company of some old friends...and some new ones.
Shark, you have my cell# so feel free to text me and we can talk it over and plan it. I hope Doc can make it also.
