Bizarre facade of the Mystery Hole, near Ansted, West Virginia. The once a "must-see" tourist attraction and gift shop in the days of cross-country, two-lane family automobile travel. The place, which offers "mind-baffling" antigravity "mystery tours," was "unclosed for public view" in 1973. According to its Web site, "Many come time and time again just curious to know if they really did see what they thought they'd seen, or if their eyes were playing tricks on them. Yet some have gone away so bewildered that they've headed in the wrong direction and became lost. Very often keys get locked in the cars because the occupants are too anxious to see the MYSTERY HOLE and experience the Laws of Gravity in action.' Photo by Carol Highsmith.
