Specific locations can hold a lot of spiritual weight, depending on what happened there. For example, more than 3 million people visit the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes in southern France each year looking for a miracle, per CBS News. Many throughout history have reported healings taking place there. On the other side of that exists the power a tragedy can hold over a community. John Wayne Gacy was arrested in December 1978, and by April 1978, his home where 26 bodies were buried was razed.

It’s easy to see why a site filled with so much horrific violence would be unwelcome. One of the most infamous examples of a soul-crushing disaster is what happened at Jonestown. Over 900 people died when cult leader Jim Jones ordered them to end their lives, though some rebelled and were quickly murdered. Does Jonestown, and the religion they followed, still exist?
