- Wojcik's Farm
- 65 Milk Street, Blackstone, MA
Have you ever heard the tale of Mass Acre Farm? According to local legend, Mass Acres Farm, one of New England’s most bountiful farms in the 1930’s, was owned by the Welker Family. Something always seemed strange about the Welker’s and when people started going missing in town, the local police department went looking around the farm for anything suspicious. In the corn field the police discovered the grisly remains of 8 victims all lined up as scarecrows on posts with the crows pecking away at their remains.
When the news spread through the township, the townspeople took justice into their own hands. On October 31st, 1935, they burned the entire farm to the ground with the Welker Family being caught in the blaze.
For the next fifteen years, the land lay barren until it was purchased by the Wojcik Family in 1950. Looking to move past the legends that surrounded the plot of land, the Wojcik’s renamed the farm to “Wojcik’s Farm”, tilled the fields, and replanted the corn.
Every year on October 31st, local children enter the cornfields as a dare or prank or just to see if the legend has any truth to it. The lucky ones who return tell of sightings of deformed monstrosities with horribly burned skin dripping from their bodies roaming through the corn. They say that the folks seen are the Welker family hunting victims down and stealing back what was taken from them. The Welkers are after their victims’ skin and when they get their hands on some, they fashion it to their putrid flesh and bone.
Good thing it’s only an urban legend, right?
