The Shiloh Forestry Compound in Asheville, North Carolina:
The Shiloh Forestry Compound is located near the Biltmore Estate. Exercise caution if you decide to go there. The place is known for drug activity and prostitution and police may not be kind to you if you’re caught trespassing there.
The Shiloh Forestry Compound used to be known as the Biltmore Forestry School, according to one source. A man named Dr. Schenk, with an awful temper ran the school, but treated students poorly. So he was fired and then school thus dissolved in 1913. Dr. Schenk was angry and blamed George Biltmore for firing him and the school closing, etc…he promised to get revenge on Biltmore.
In 1955, after Dr. Schenk’s death, Asheville locals started reporting odd goings-on at the compound.
