This cemetery dates back to the mid 19th century, but has been more or less abandoned for the past three decades. Its most famous “inhabitant” is probably Billy Cook, who killed six people during a 22-day criminal rampage between Missouri and California in the early 1950s. He was buried here in an unmarked grave after being executed in the gas chamber at San Quentin.
Locals claim to frequently see apparitions here. Items are thrown at visitors, some unlucky souls return home with unexplained scratches on them.
