Centralia, Pennsylvania

Centralia, Pennsylvania is an (almost entirely) abandoned former mining town in Pennsylvania and, most famously, the inspiration for the Silent Hill franchise

Formerly Route 61 – this location is now known as Graffiti Highway

The underground coal mine fires burning since the late 60s made the highway unusable

Odd Fellows Cemetery is believed to be close to the starting point of the fires, steam vents can be seen in and around the area
