  1. Very beautiful Very Haunted and very active Shadows growls Orbs voices foot steps apparitions all the good stuff I would like to be laid to rest there myself.

    • There are several different types large Black masses some forms are small even apparitions i have been going here for a visit since 1977 on and off i use to be a care taker there also in my younger days all the times i went i never felt anything sinister i have a few pics of apparitions i also have heard music with singeing whispers talking and foot steps in the gravel paths if you know this place its a ways from all the noise and traffic hope this helps Kay

      • My Name is Robert Ahart, My father and my ancestors are buried in Manzanita. We have been in Placer County since the early 1840’s. I will be buried next to my father. Please give me any of your feeling about the burial ground.

  2. I’ve heard and experienced terrifying stories from this devastating cemetery. I will never ever go back to this place unless it’s to bring back the monsters that followed me home that horrible night. I believe I may have pictures somewhere on an old computer but nothing caught on camera but personal horrific memories.

  3. I have lived in Lincoln for 30 years and love going to this cemetery. I have experienced footsteps and voices but nothing sinister. I will continue to come to Manzanita it is a place I like to go to think
