The 18th-century Seventh Day Baptist Cemetery is also known as the Green Lady Cemetery because of the many sightings of a ghost called the Green Lady. Some believe she is the spirit of Seventh Day Baptist Elisabeth Palmiter, who drowned in a swamp in 1800 while searching for her “missing” husband Benjamin, who, unbeknownst to her, was not missing but was waiting out a bad snowstorm in town. Her husband eventually found her body in a swamp, wearing a green dress. The Green Lady appears surrounded in a green mist, smiles and disappears. Some people have also claimed to see a light here, thought to be the lantern of Benjamin looking for his wife.
