Blair Witch signs for sale -- maybe

By Washington Post editors


A Maryland town that has long disdained its ties to the “Blair Witch Project” is now considering selling some coveted artifacts from the 1999 horror film.

They are four road signs reading, “Welcome to the historic village of Burkittsville.” They resemble those seen in the movie by characters researching the fictitious legend of the Blair Witch.

Voters in the community of 180 will decide June 7 whether to sell the signs in an Internet auction or save any of them for posterity.

Burkittsville had the heavy metal signs made after souvenir hunters stole the original wooden ones.

That didn't stop the thievery so the town recently replaced them with versions that don't resemble those seen in the movie.
