Black Diamond Mines

Two ghosts are said to reside here. One is called the White Witch. According to legend, she was executed for being a witch when the children she was caring for all died of illness. The second ghost is Sarah Norton, a woman who was said to have been run over by a carriage. Both women appear in white, so it is thought that they are often confused by those who see them.

    2. Been living in Pittsburg since 93’. No sign whatsoever of the white witch or any spirit in that matter. Been to rose hill cemetary many times, only thing that’s strange is there’s barely any wind and it’s quiet up there in the cemetery.

      • That’s scary as hell! I heard about stories so I never go late but I will hike and so far have seen nothing. But I stay along the hiking paths. I’ve been to the cemetery but I don’t walk passed it.
