Kern Place in El Paso Texas (I grew up in that neighborhood)

They supposedly called this the "Gate of Death".  It was built in 1916 by Peter Kern.  He founded the neighborhood and I lived in his house at the top of Cincinnati Street.  Apparently he was connected with some very odd Illuminati and Masonic types and lots of mystery surrounds it.  I can attest that it was a very strange place to grow up.  Very quiet.  Too quiet.  In retrospect, I think I grew up surrounded by Satan worshippers.  I did not know that at that time.  They say Peter Kern was decapitated in a ritual sacrifice underneath that sign.  It was torn down in the 1950s and I moved there in 1973 or so.
