      Lived two doors down for over 7 years. Viewed cemetery at all different hours and seasons, no weird phenomena going on.

    2. We lived in Lafayette for years and experienced many, many unexplainable things in our home–which was in a brand new neighborhood. We used to go to the cemetery fairly frequently. Sometimes we caught strange things on video, sometimes there was nothing. The cemetery in video #2 is not the same one as the one in video #1. The Masonic cemetery is EXTREMELY creepy. You can always feel someone/something watching you from the trees on your way up the hill. As you round the bend at the top of the hill, the oppression is tangible. We got one of the few authentic EVP’s we’ve recorded in that cemetery.

    3. I have been at Lafayette cemetery at night time and have asked Anna if she wan5s to tell me anything I asked 3 times before I received an old woman’s voice telling me “nothing and not again” say she didn’t want to tell me “nothing and to not ask again”. True story.

    4. I went to both cemeteries cemetery I made a a snapchat video before going in the gate and my mom and I both clearly heard a lady say what are we gonna do…then at the masonic cemetery I could feel someone watchung me all the way up the hill then as I rounded the bend around the hill the trees started blowing around…I have it all on video…something I’ve never experienced in my life!! Very powerful

    5. I’ve been to the Lafayette pioneer cemetery many times, during the day and at night..nothing has ever happened there.
      I’ve also walked through the masonic cemetery at night, that one is spooky. I felt like someone else was there besides my friend and i.

    6. My friend and I went to the masonic cemetery in search of an experience and boy we got one. We walked about in awe at the nature around us. It truly was beautiful. However, it was the most desecrated cemetery I’ve ever seen. Most headstones were knocked over. There was a peculiar plant that grew in the exact shape and size of a grave but if they were graves they were unmarked. We decided to walk back to the car after experiencing no activity for over half an hour. As we walked down the hill, we both began to hear very distinct, very human sounding footsteps to our right in the fairly dense forest. They continued to get louder and we walked faster, but it kept up with us for nearly a minute of walking. It felt like a life time! We made it safely to the car and got the heck out of there!
