"Fall Brook is a ghost town located in Ward Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, United States. The town has been deserted since around 1900. In 1860, the Fallbrook Coal Company founded the town on the Fall Brook Creek. John Magee and his son Duncan had discovered some coal along the banks of the Fall Brook Creek. The Magees also constructed a railroad to connect Fall Brook with Corning, New York where the coal was transported up to the Erie Canal. By 1862, Fall Brook had a population of about 1400 people. Eventually the coal ran out, and by 1900 the town ceased to exist. The town of Fallbrook, California is named after this town."
"The borough of Fallbrook was established in 1864. When the railroad closed the town slowly diminished to eventually nothing. Only a cemetery, some basement foundations, and small scattered personal items remain. The cemetery dates back to as early as the mid 1800s and is rumored to be haunted by children buried there who died from the bubonic plague. The majority of those resting there are children. Many of the plots next to the stones are raising from the ground to form mounds. Ghost hunters and seekers of the paranormal frequent the cemetery in hopes of finding whatever haunts the cemetery and woods surrounding it. Some say they have seen strange mists, felt uneasy or "watched" and even heard screams coming from the woods."

"Fallbrook is a ghost town located between Canton, Pa and Blossburg, Pa. This was a return investigation and was doubling as a training exercise. Numerous EVPs and disembodied voices were heard and recorded. Also a full scale shadow person was witnessed by an investigator but dissipated before video documentation could be gained. Truly an amazing place worthy of further study and experimentation and is an extremely HAUNTED location."

"The smallpox raged in Fall Brook during the winter of 1871-2, and several deaths resulted. On Saturday and Sunday May 11th and 12th 1872 fire raged in the woods surrounding Fall brook, and threatened the destruction of the town. The whole population fought the fire and succeeded in arresting its progress."
