Springlawn Farm (Albino Farm)
Whenever Halloween rolls around, this location always becomes a popular topic. Yes, this is Springfield's infamous urban legend, the Albino Farm. Don't get excited though, because any rumors you may have heard are most likely complete and utter nonsense. The farm was owned by real and hard-working people at one time, and yet somehow locals always associate it with man-eating albinos. There may have been an albino man working as a farmhand for the Sheedy family at one point, though this has never been proven. So no, the farm wasn't owned by an all albino family, nor was it used as some sort of haven for albinos.

The location is also said to be haunted in general, though like the Winoka Lodge, we didn't see, hear, or feel anything supernatural. What we did see though, were lots of neat ruins. This was actually also our very first mission as an official UE "group," so I was probably pretty easy to please, heh. Unfortunately, much of the land around the farm is being developed, so the remains of the historical Sheedy estate may disappear within a year's time.
