    Me, my brother, my boyfriend and son went for a walk down to the old cemetery while we were visiting. When we arrived at the cemetery I stayed at the edge of the ground next to the parking lot with my son asleep in the stroller. My brother and boyfriend went on ahead to look at the old gravestones. My brother and boyfriend were standing a few feet from the old tree where there are a few unknown graves looking at the head stones, about maybe 30 feet away I saw a woman dressed in victorian period clothing walking in their direction. I didn’t feel alarmed at first because I thought maybe she was a tour guide in costume. I tried to wave at her to get her attention, but she didn’t see me. I them proceeded to walk in their dierection thinking maybe I could ask her some questions about the towns history. When I got to where my brother and boyfriend were standing I did not see the woman anymore and there was nowhere for her to go unless she went into the woods. I asked them if they saw her and which way she went. They told me that there was no one else in the cemetery with us. They were standing right where I saw her walk to. The woman I saw was maybe in her 30s wearing a blue victorian style dress and a bonnet similar to an Amish bonnet and brownish looking hair.

  2. As a late birthday present, my grandparents and my aunt took me to Rugby to go ghost hunting. Investigating is a passion of mine, and I love using my grandmothers Ovilus. Another group of paranormal investigators had stayed in the house that night, and were kind enough to share some photos they had captured. There were incredible pictures, and lots of audio evidence. As they were sharing the photos, I took a walk around the property with the Ovilus. I got words like “devil” and “sacred”. The feeling was incredible, and strong. I definitely recommend this place and it’s amazing history!
