Reported here have been a ghostly priest, a ringing bell, strange noises and footsteps, and mysterious mists. The bell is said to be from a phantom church, which used to stand nearby but was burned down a few decades ago, reports say. Some say the church basement was used for devil worship, leading to the dangerous paranormal activity here.

  1. I went to that church as a child and it was certainly was not scary. I sang in the church choir, helped my Mom clean and enjoyed many parish picnics there. There used to be a church hall as well and the adults would have card parties there.. The only reason it gets this scary connotation is that some stupid kids went in there and were wreaking havoc. My relatives are buried there so I wish everyone would just leave the place alone. I know where a much scarier place is near there where there are graves that are probably from the wagon trail days. There were 3 of them and the names were written on flat rocks. I surely won’t tell where it is located as some idiot is likely to go there.

    • Well, somebody’s having a bad day.. ;P and yes I would still go there for the possible paranormal experience. As long as you’re not wrecking any tombstones or damaging graves it’s not doing any harm. So stop.

    • The fire department burned it down for practice. People are crazy. Just making stuff up. It was long condemmed before burning.

      • Wiji board was brought there..
        Just because you don’t believe doesn’t mean other people shouldn’t if you mess with the devil, you invite him in your life, its not just the graveyard you take evil with you& paranormal activity can happen to anyone who invited him in, not just because this sounds like a scary story, but because this stuff actually does happen&its people like you who usually are the ones to test this&never come back :)

  2. I say it can be dangerous but not unless I go there my self and see if there really are evil spirits that are truly evil. Than I will. Not being a jerk or anything. But they say dangerous to make it more scarier. Don’t you guys think.

  3. I just went yesterday. I grew up going to this cemetery and yes I firmly will say there is def paranormal activities that happen. I’ve been touched by unseen forces, I’ve heard voices talking, I’ve seen unexplained lights go on and off (and no not those of graveside markings) and my husband got scratched just standing near the Jesus statue. My 8 yr old was caught talking to someone …and he’s sensitive as he has Autism and blew my mind when he said mom can u see the woman next to me?? If you venture here I just simply ask please respect the dead and don’t make jokes while upon their grounds…go with peace and love in your hearts :)

  4. Yeah … This place burnt down 10-15 years ago before it was condemned in the late 1990s it was a little food co-op that only lasted for a short time cus of its location . Before it was the co-op it was owned or used by a satanic cult . They would do black mass rituals there as well as sacrifice animals and do soul hunts in the grave yard . I know this cus I was a local and some friends of mine attended and I went a few times. The area had a small group of witches that had bought farms and old houses .. I don’t think they live around there anymore . But in the 90s. Satanic rites and rituals were preformed there and all around lake Geneva and weird random spots in sconie . Satan was all the rage in the 80s and 90s … Now he just runs the world .
