    1. I’ve been here quite a few times and it is always creepy. Adding to the creepiness factor is that it’s down an old dirt road and on the side of a hill. During the day it’s not too bad and fun to look around, but at night I almost can’t go inside it at all. It’s overgrown and doesn’t look very well maintained, probably due to the location since it’s in an area of the foothills which is protected by law to help the local plant species’ thrive.

        Because I’ve hiked the trails around the cemetery often. I’ve visited it often, as well. I find myself drawn to the old cemetery, and I’ve doing some historical research of my own. I’ve not ever found the cemetery “creepy”; I’ve not felt or seen anything to suggest malevolence on any level. I do think one’s expectations will color the experience. Ms. Creeped out might.study her own expectations . Possible she’ll find whatever she felt within. You may also be undet a misread about applicable law

    2. A haunted military cemetery? What the hell? I’ve never heard about or seen any haunted graveyards infested by ghosts yet. I’ve heard that Arlington National Cemetery was haunted but I do not think that it is true at all. Another haunted military graveyard is Gettysburg National Cemetery is located at the Gettysburg National Military Park. There are no such things as ghosts because they’re not even real.

    3. I went there last night and out of no where I got this really cold feeling and then it got really warm it wasn’t a breeze but as if I had drank a bottle of ice cold water then downed a mug of hot chocolate my friend had touched one of the tombstones and felt someone grab his shoulder and pull him backward then the flag in the back started to fly but there was no wind at all…

    4. I was up there a few buddies of mine a few nights ago and we brought along an EVP I bought and we caught this very strange sounding voice on it. It’s a pretty big piece of land and we were on the other side of the cemetery. I can’t make out what it says on the recorder but it’s very strange and very creepy sounding. Kinda sounds like scratching.

    5. Again I went up there with a buddy of mine and caught another EVP and it’s clear as day. It’s women saying “she reads alone at night”.

    6. I’m looking for a place to visit that’s super haunted, but I’d prefer it to be in the boise area, my friends and I have been wanting to do this for awhile
