    • I’ve lived there all my life in Polkville you can around the church forward and backwards still same result NOTHING…. Don’t get me wrong I love the place… Family buried there it maybe!!!!!!

      They all protecting me, go see if anything happens!

  1. One night about 23 years ago,although I can remember it like it was yesterday I saw a man in front of the church .He had blue jean overalls on black rim glasses n white hair …He tried to open my car door n then he just disappeared…I was 18 then n that place was a parking spot for a lot of teens..After that night I never went back…I lived behind this church and my family eventually had to move away My mom saw a lady n a long green dress and night after night my father was awakened by sounds of a mill …he could hear the machines running the wood through n such ???my mother later had to be hospitalized because this place was to much for her to handle ..

  2. well we just drove 2 hours to come to this haunted church and there is a gate blocking it off that you would have to walk .2 miles which would actually make a normal human being shit their pants and I cannot physically handle the fact that there are bullet holes in the signs on the fence. so, if you like shitting yourself enjoy the walk to the church which we actually didn’t have the balls to get out of the car and see and BY THE WAY THIS TRIP GOT MY FRIEND GROUNDED BEVAUSE HER FATHER TRACKS HER SO WOW WE HATE OUR LIVES. #RNS

  3. There is no fence blocking the church. I’ve grown up going to this church numerous times. I have family buried here. It is a wonderful place to visit if you love old churches.

  4. I have been to this church many times and never has it had a gate blocking it. It is a wonderful old church. It may have been our imaginations but myself and a group of friends have, on occasion heard unexplained sounds.

  5. This place isn’t even scary today me and my friends walked up the the door and knocked and nothing happens we looked inside and its just pews and a piano in their we went to the grave yard on holloween night and nothing happened their use to be people in a cult meet their and cut chicken heads off but that’s prolly not real

  6. it’s said to have been a place where the KKK hung the people they murdere . its also said that if you drive around the church 3 times blood will come out the walls although that isn’t true. I’ve been there many times. I live in raleigh, but spend most of my time in polkville. there is no gate. its actually a very nice place.

  7. The “instructions” are to drive around three times and stop in the front and just look around and you’ll find something. Well me and my friends drove around and never saw anything, so we got out to walk around 3 times, and on the second lap, we all heard a series of knocks. I’ve never ran so fast in my life. Lost a brand new pair of flip flops.

  10. Me and my then wife went to visit my grandmother’s grave. We also found a child’s grave that looked like it had been broken in to. When we got back to the car around dusk we had a flat tire and i’ve never changed a tire that fast in my life. because it felt like we were being watched. As we were driving home we could smell the smell of baby powder but it started to change to the smell of rotting meat.about half way home the smell went away.
