The Legend of Lincoln Mill

The Legend of Lincoln Mill

The Lincoln Mill opened in 1860 and was one of Manayunk’s numerous textile mills. In March 2021, the mill was purchased by a local developer, who began renovations on the building.

On September 2, 2021, Hurricane Ida struck Philadelphia and flooded the mill to historic water levels. The flood damaged the mill’s interior and revealed a hidden chamber in the basement. Many bodies were found and a dark truth was discovered about the mill’s past.

During the Great Depression in the 1930’s, the mill owner, Viktor Kane, tormented and experimented on his workers. Many workers lost their lives and their spirits haunt the mill.

Construction has since been halted.

Viktor’s Valentine, a Dark Love Story

In the 1930s, Viktor Kane had several accomplices that helped him carry out his evil acts. One of them loved Viktor, but developed a deep resentment towards him. She wanted the pain to stop and so she came up with a plan to take down his operation. 

On February 14th, 1939, she left a trail of hearts inside the hidden chamber.  At the end of the trail, she revealed herself; greeted Viktor with a kiss, and then stabbed him in the heart. She then took her own life, wanting to be free of her guilt, her body, and to be with Viktor forever. 

Viktor’s Vengeance, Halfway to Halloween

The Lincoln Mill is haunted by many spirits, among them is the former mill owner, Viktor Kane. To discover what occurred after his death, a paranormal research team will return to the mill when the spirits are most active, the halfway point to Halloween.

The end of April marks the transition between seasons and is one of the few nights when the veil between the spirit world and ours is very thin.  The chamber has been lit up in ultraviolet light to reveal unnatural activity. Since then, messages have appeared, revealing a dark truth about Viktor Kane and the massacre of his allies.
