"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."
