Strange phenomona occur here, seemingly revolving around two statues: the Black Angel and a young girl set on a pedestal. Folks have reported seeing strange lights and the Angel walking about as a glowing shape. It is said that the little girl statue will pick out one member of a group of cemetery visitors and stare at that person until they exit the vicinity. Also, it is said that the temperature changes in relation to the girl statue. The closer you get, the warmer you feel, and the farther away, the colder.
