    1. Yes it is haunted!!! & I have video proof! !just type in haunted places in ma the rev & read the description box for the times of ghost activities & let me know what u think

    2. Oh sorry for got to mention the goose bumps I got the night I went & believe it or not & I don’t care what any one says, I’m not the type to always get goose bumps, it felt like my back & neck blew up with em’ the feeling was unlike I ever felt! !!!!

    3. The Rev is legit ive seen a person with a white face run from behind a grave stone. Two females walking down the road with black ropes holding lit candles. Another time in the woods directly across from the cemetary green orbs appeared like over 100 and no they werent glow bugs they stayed lit and moved towards the road. And the scariest things that happened before they built the second to last house on the road we would drive down an flash our head lines in hopes to aggravate a “ghost dog” well 100% true something is crazy going with dogs up there. First time black dog red eyes a foaming from the mouth ran out from a pitch black field and stood in front of our car. Us being scared shitless decieded to run it over to get away but when we passed over it an we looked behind us it followed us all the way off the street.. Another time my buddy got out of his car to snap some picks and as he sitting back down and shutting the door i seen in his side mirror a huge white dog legit 1 step behind him as he shut the door and stood at the window or car breathing on the window and started barking an foaming from the mouth it also had a red eye an blue eye. As we turned the car around to leave rather quickly the dog sat on the wall of cemetery and watched us till we couldnt see him anymore.. Its crazy up there not so much now they built houses.

      • I have seen that down when I went and tried to get out of my car to explore the rev. I went to get out and all the sudden it was right next to my door. Hopped up on the cemetery wall and watched us too. I am thoroughly freaked out!

    4. I’ve been here three times.

      The first time I went, I was alone, I pulled up I parked my car, exited my vehicle, I stood just outside my car facing the stone wall that hugs the grave yard, as I stood there admiring the antiquity of the cemetery when I started to notice faint sound of drums in the woods behind me, I turned around, I crossed the street and as I moved closer the drum got louder, it was an old drum sound, like a high school band drum who wears the drum string around the neck, the beat was repetitive like a brum, brun, brum, like a marching band so I’m thinking to myself ok that must be Monty techs band practicing, but all I heard was the drum, I did manage the courage to go a bit deeper in the woods to see if I could actually see Monty tech from this location, I walked, drums got louder, I walked more, still all I could see was Forrest for as long as the eyes can see, I walked until I literally got the chills up my spine, the hairs on my arm were raised, a chiver that was so cold and so and so unexplainable considering it was the dead of summer. I suddenly felt I was not alone, I was still hearing the drumming, I suddenly just freaked out, turned around and ran the hell out of there, I got in my car, locked the doors, I opened my car window to see if I could still hear the drumming and indeed I could, so I left without even making into the grave yard, the woods across the St. From the cemetery is something a paranormal investigator to take note of.

      My second trip to the REV cemetery, this time I wasn’t messing around, I brought along my then 19 year old son whom I refer to as my gentle giant. We pull up next to cemetery, we listen for the drumming I heard on mynprevious trip, we heard nothing, so we get out of the car and I took a picture of the cemetery from outside the cemetery rock wall the picture came out fine, we walk into the cemetery, I take a picture and it comes out all dark grey, no picture, just dark grey, so I take another picture, again all dark grey no picture. I fiddled with the modes, it did not matter every picture dark grey that’s it. So I walk out of the cemetery I take a picture of it from outside the stone rock wall the picture comes out fantastic!!! So I walk back into the REV I take another picture and again all dark grey.

      I’ve performed many paranormal investigations of both homes and businesses and though I’ve never performed an all night professional investigation of the Rev it certainly is marked as an active location in my book. It’s definitely worth a look and regardless if it’s haunted or not it is still a very beautiful, historic location.

    5. It was 1990 when I first encountered them at that Rev. I grew up in a haunted house and dabbled in the occult growing up so I didn’t frighten easily plus the Rev was a great drinking spot. A new acquaintance of mine told me stories of entities he knew of and had a kinship with . Knowing the legend of the Rev and surrounding area I thought it would be fun to show him around so up we went. After arriving we hung out by the entrance for a while the decided to walk down the road a bit and turned around and kept it up for some time until I noticed lights in the trees, not normal lights but pairs of lights. The weren’t bright or shimmering instead the all had the same intensity with one stark difference , half of the were silver and the others red. That was when we we first met, the spirits and I . It was from that point on I never was alone. Could there be an inter dimensional portal on that land ? I believe there is . Treat the Rev with respect for you never know who is watching.
