  1. Myself and threw friends took a Ouija board out there around 3 am one night almost two years ago. As soon as we tried to contact spirits, there was a deep, horrific howl and screeching coming from the woods. This noise was consistent the entire time we played. It was definetely something haunted! Anyhow, we tried to contact spirits for a good 40 minutes. Having researched the place before we went there, we had the idea that we would contact “Tillie” and we searches for her light, though, we never did see it. So about 20 minutes into playing it got terribly cold and much windier out there, and we weren’t connecting with anyone. A friend informed me that if any of us were skeptical, then we wouldn’t be able to make contact. As hard as I tried, I couldn’t shake the doubt. Plus my friend was taunting the spirits, cursing at them and calling them. That made me even more scared. I wasnt interested in pissing spirits off! But i was cold and spooked out. I Bowed out. I returned to the car while my friends continued on calling spirits. About 10 minutes later they all came running to the car, claiming that they had gotten two responses, that yes, they had contacted someone.. And after they asked “do you want us to leave”, they eye along with their hands still lightly attached, flew to “goodbye” and they jetted! The look of fear on their faces tells me, that something is definitely out there.

    • Let me say that i grew up in Cedar Rapids, Ia right down the street from Oak Hill Cemetery on Camburn Ct. As kids, and into our teens we would always hang out in this cemetery and we have experienced some very weird unexplainable things. So i have always, and still do think that this cemetery is haunted. My whole family has always experienced some unexplainable things that has happened in our home as well. We always thought that our house was haunted as well. It is a house there on Camburn Ct. I will not give the house number out so the people that do live there now don’t get people coming a calling.
