Details:The Appalachian Mountains have always been full of mystery, abounding in legends and bloodshed during the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. However, from 1850 to 1889, a new horror haunted these lands with secrets of devious deeds that were carefully hidden behind the walls of a tavern owned by Matthias Schaumboch.

In this two-room tavern, Matthias confessed on his deathbed to murdering eleven to fourteen people before he lost count. Rumors had already begun to circulate as locals whispered about Matthias killing lonely travelers for valuables and then dismembering the bodies. There were even stories of Matthias feeding his victims to unknowing guests at Schaumboch’s Tavern.
Only later were the atrocities confirmed when the property was purchased after Matthias’s death by William and Anne Turner. Based upon true events and local history, this is the story of America’s first serial killer. Even today, curious visitors can drive the lonely road to Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and view the tavern.
