You are here Home  > Cemeteries >  Clear Creek Church and Cemetery

This historic church was built in 1898, and was the scene of an infamous shootout. Visitors to the graveyard and church after dark claim to have seen a misty apparition moving quickly among the headstones, as if looking for someone.

  1. i drove there late one night with my friend eric. we turned down the dirt road that lead to the property and imediatly felt a heavy weight on us, and the feeling of being unwanted there. we ignored it and kept driving, we were really uneasy the whole time driving down this road, we felt like something was watching us from the field on either side and no matter how far down the road we went the feeling stuck. we pull up to the church and at this point it felt like i had a bag of bricks sitting on me i was so heavy with this presence. i was in the driver seat, both me and eric looked out his passenger window and it started to fog up. we had the heater on because it was cold outside and the tempeture both in the car and outside started dropping, despite us having the AC on high. we hadnt looked directly at the church that had been sitting on the left side of the car we were both to afraid to look. we looked straigh at the gate that lead to the cemetery. i leaned forward and looked to the left to see the church and it felt like something didnt want me there. my stomach flipped and i felt the presence “yelling” at me to leave, i turned around and sped down the brick road and the feeling of this presence didnt really leave us until 20 minutes later.

  2. My friends & I visited the Clear Creek church & cemetery for Halloween.

    As we walked into the cemetery a vase fell. We headed toward the middle & a white figurine was spinning. As we walked toward the right side we saw the same figurine spinning. As we walked down the middle we took a picture of the walkway in the middle & the picture showed two men with paper bags on there head with triangles cut in the bag where they’re eyes were.

    We left and went to the church which was the most scariest . As we walked around toward the back another porcelain plaque moved along with a blinking light.

    As we went to the front we looked in the window and saw what looked to be someone hanging as well as a lady sitting by the piano facing toward us.

    As we took pictures from each side of the window it was quiet. Then we saw a lady in white move from the back of the church to the front and brush her hand on the glass window, she looked not amused by our presence.

    We also saw a bright light in the church that looked to be a flashlight shining on the wall.

    We all freaked & ran out. As we shut the gate and got into the car to leave the gate reopened.

    In fear we drove off but came back 10 seconds later to re shut it because we didn’t want to any spirits to be let out or follow us.

    When we pulled up the gate moved a bit more. When we left & were reviewing the photos all you could see was two big orbs.

    Then when we went back to the picture one man appeared. Then we looked at the rest & when we came back to that same photo we saw 2 more men.

    We researched the history of the Clear Creek Church and what we read matched the description of what we saw.

    The lady in white was a 17 year old female who committed suicide due to torment.
    The two men by the church were those of the men in the robbery. The other man we saw which was standing straight on the top of the church looked to be the one hanged for his crimes and involvement in the robbery.

    We had no idea who the lady was that was at the piano but somehow was faced toward us staring. We felt it was the same one who brushed her hand on the window who wasn’t amused by any of our presence.

    My advice is if you go there, go with good intentions as we did.

    Don’t provoke ANY spirits nor try to get them to show they exist because in doing that YOU WILL most definitely hear strange sounds & see abnormal things because it was clear they didn’t want us there.

    What we saw was real without a doubt, it scared us enough that we’ll NEVER return not even during the day.

    If you don’t believe, go & see for yourself. I promise you that you will both hear & see things.
