    1. The only way it is haunted is by vandals that have near destroyed this historic early 1800s church. Idiot’s have broken out the windows and doors to the church and tamperd with the headstones. The sheriff’s office is now watching the place an I hear hidden cameras have been placed.

      • this place is haunted. if you dont believe it, go check it out. you dont have to go at night. i was 4wheeling with some friends a few years ago up there and made the mistake of riding around the main building. i did not see anything, but my 4wheeler died. i had to be pushed out and down to the paved road where we waited on the truck and trailer. we took my atv to the shop to be checked. it fired right up. it wouldnt crank back up before then. so we loaded it up and took it home. that night i couldnt sleep from the weird dreams i was having. the next day, i got on my 4wheeler and attempted to start it, with no such luck. called a tech to my house and it fired right up for him, but died when i got on it, and it holding a steady idle. i got off and he got on and again, it fired right up. holding steady idle, as if it were brand new. he held the throttle on my atv at an accellerated idle and again, i climbed on, while he held the throttle, and it died yet again. i then decided to tell him when it started happening, and where. we both exchanged stories of the old church deep in the woods near red level alabama. as i type, i can feel the strange things watching me from the windows and across my yard. ive seen things since then too. the most recent was a pair of small girls playing near a headstone and as i approached, they simply looked up, smiled, and disappeared. everywhere i have been since my trip to consolation church the spirits have followed me. its like im a magnet for the paranormal. and before you call me a quack, i have respected members of the community that will back me up. simply put, cameras or not, ill never return. and its not for fear of being arrested. and just so you know, they cant prosecute for being on the property if the cameras arent visible and a sign posted you are being recorded. kind of a law. all they can tell you to do, if they catch you there, is tell you to leave. its only AFTER that, can you be arrested, and its a misdemeanor trespassing charge.

    2. Who’s responsibility is it to take care of GODS HOUSE? If the house of GOD is a historical place,who is in charge of the up keep?

    3. Consolation is haunted. I didn’t believe in any of the sort when a group of us camped out there some 15 years ago.
      It started with sound of heing circled in the woods surrounding the cemetary. Then there were murmers. When we went the doors and windows were still intact. We were inside, and I, being a stupid teenager at the time stood up on the pulpit and started demanding some action. Nothing happened. We went to leave and the doors, both back and front wouldn’t open. We had 5 large teenage boys with us and with them shoving and shoving the doors wouldn’t open. When they stopped pusjing on the front door and went to the back door, I walked up to thw door, put my hand on it and I as swung open very very easily.
      By this time I was ready to leave but the boys wanted a fire and they went into the woods to find some debis. My friend samantha was with me, as well as her sister. I was looking at headstones when I saw samantha hit the ground. She couldn’t breathe, couldn’t catch her breath. I screamed for the boys for help. They come running talking about how they were following glowing eyes in the woods to see what it was. When they couldn’t calm sam eaither we gpt in the car to leave and it wouldn’t crank. We tried over and over…nothing. all this time the crunching in the woods was getting deafening and sams breathing was worsening. The guys got out and started truifng to n push start the car. Finally it crunk up. About a milebdown the road samanthas breathing returned to normal. Abour 5 miles down the road all 4 tires blew out almost simultaneously. We were so freaked out we drove it as far as we could on the rims. There were 7 0f us. All will tell you the same story.

    4. only way this place is haunted is by me messing with my friends we use to go down there all the time with girls and scare the living hell out of them ive slept in the cemetary on the ground next to a tombstone nothing happened i am very comfortable here and will gladly take anyone that wants to go and see it any of my friends that is
