In the old pump house that used to control arrogation flow to the farmers, two workers met their end.
Working alone one night one of the workers slipped and fell into one of the large machines. The other worker tried to come to his rescue but was not strong enough to pull out his friend. As his friend was devoured by the machine his grip increased on his would be rescuers arm which was pulled into the machine. The worker pulled back missing his arm, he then fell to the floor and bled to death.
The pump house was shut down soon after, yet it is hard to tell at times. People have reported hearing voices and music coming from the pump house. Witnesses have also seen strange lights coming from the pump house. In fact, the authorities have been called several times because of complaints of intruders, but have found the building to be tightly secured and empty.

Where is the pump house? I grew up in Benjamin & when I asked my parents who have lived there 50 + years they weren't sure of it either. Nor was my brother.
The pump house is just off the road that goes to Leland thru benjamin to the north. on the east side of the train tracks.
