There is much controversy regarding where the Seven Gates of Hell are located in Athol, Massachusetts. Shadowlands lists the location as being 400 yards off Pleasant Hill Road. However, a number of curiosity-seekers have noted that Pleasant Hill Road in Athol, Massachusetts does not exist. There is, in fact a “Mount Pleasant Road” however as well as “Pleasant Street” off of 2A.

There are a number of places throughout the United States where one can supposedly visit hell through some sort of portal. For example, in Blue Ash, Ohio near Cincinnati, people visit Satan's Hollow where locals claim a group used to perform black magic too.

They claim that the altar was used for animal and/or human sacrifices. There is said to be blood on the walls. As such, visitors claim to hear ghostly whispers in the dark from disembodied entities. Some say they saw animals hanging from the trees when they were there.
