In a town known for its haunts, the Lake Helen-Cassadaga Cemetery is home to the local legend’s Devil’s Chair. Gravestones date back to the 1800s; Cassadaga founder George Colby is buried here. Some folks say shadowy figures lurk here at night, but the Devil’s Chair is perhaps the most well-known tale from these parts. It was said to have been built for an elderly visitor to use while paying respects to his deceased wife, but local lore has spawned many legends about the chair. One is that if you leave an unopened beer can on it overnight, when you return the next morning you will find the can empty, although still sealed.
