  1. So the story I was told was that there once was a town that disappeared, and only a few residents had survived or got out etc… So I was very interested. Friends of mine were up for the treck up the hill. So on New Years eve or sometime during the winter we started out. I sat in the back of the truck. I noticed some white blurs a long side the truck in the woods, but that could have been the snow. We weren’t going that fast. You can’t actually go that fast since it is a seasonal dirt road. So we stopped at the top of the road where it T’s. So we got out of the truck. I walked out do the middle of the T intersection. Off to my Left was a tree line. I heard a growl. I walked back to the truck and let the others know. The driver had a large flash light and so we both walked over to the are where I heard the growl. We shined the light and where the light landed again their was a growl. We couldn’t see anything. There was no eye shine nothing!!! So we decided it would be better to leave.

    Other stories I was told was of families who go up to the berry patches have witnessed the sounds of something circling them as they picked berries, and again they couldn’t see what was circling them. I’ve also been told of a woman in white. You see her a few different ways. One is just seeing her gown draped over a head stone. The other is seeing a headless body, and the last is seeing her, but she is a very old very scary woman who stands in the middle of the road. Never made it to the village or town, and not sure I made it to the grave yard either. It is definitely an interesting place. If you can go do, and go with a group. There is rumor that their have been big cats released up there. The government denies it, but people who live at the base of the hill have seen them.

    • I had heard of some Bigfoot activity up there and rode up there maybe and 1/4 mile from the graveyard. I had my 13 year old son and my girlfriend with me. It was last summer a full moon. We sat in my suv with the windows down for about ten minutes. My girlfriend was poking fun at me a bit when we heard a thump of to the right of the truck I would guess at least 50 yards away. We all heard it and my girlfriend said it was probably a deer stomping its hoof. I said well I can fell it in the truck so I don’t know. Then we heard it again. As we sat there off to my left I heard a growl that made my hair stand up on my neck. I didn’t say anything when my son said “Did you hear that growl Dad?” I said yes and 2 minutes later it did it again. I was scarred but didn’t want my son to know. I started the truck and my girlfriend said ” What are you leaving for? We’re just starting to hear stuff?” I told her because that growl was scaring the shit out of me. It didn’t sound like an animal to me, not to mention I can’t recall ever hearing something growling in the woods at night. It sounded like a growl I’ve heard on a ghost hunter show on one of those recorders. We drove up to the cemetery and me and my son got out to pee while my girlfriend walked all around the cemetery . Another time after that a friend and I went back up to the center of the forest according to our GPS , did a single tree knock at 2:30am and got an immediate response , one tree knock and that was it. I’ve been up there about 9 times last summer and had weird stuff happen 3 times. The third thing was just my friends hair on his arms standing up when we go in the cemetery. He won’t go in there anymore. I plan to go up again soon.

      • This place will have you go insane if you stay up there for a long time. One time me and my cousins went up there and we live close by worst part we would see and hear all kinds of things but I could never forget the night that I can face to face with of the huge shadow men scariest moment of my life. We just got done drinking and I was pretty intoxicated and had too pee so I hopped out of the car and walked into the woods. I was standing there pissing and I heard a weird noise like breathing and it got closer as I listened but I ignored it and kept on peeing thinkin it was my cousins messing with me thats until a shadow that was way bigger than mine showed that when I turned around to look what it was. When I turned around a figure about 8ft was standing in front of me about 15 feet away staring down at me I couldnt move I was to scared. That hill has things on it that no man would ever think lived and that hill will make you never want to go anywhere haunted or covered in beast

    • That is some scary stuff I’ve never been up there and really wanna go to see if the rumors and stories are true….. My great grandma always used to go up to Connecticut Hill whenever she had a Pibolar episode and my mom wants to know why….. And I’m pretty sure it always used to be the night time when she went up there

  2. I went up there with friends on Halloween and I saw a little girl she runs at u from the grave also friends of mine have taped the voice in the area telling u to leave and screaming

  3. I grew up at the bottom of the hill. The town didnt actually disapear it moved down in the valley, Alpine. There are big cats up there, also packs of wild dogs. There has been activity in the cemetary by a “Satanic cult “along with the graves being robbed. I can honestly say I have never seen any signs of a “big foot” but there is definately alot of creepy stuff up there and the people buried there dont like company.

    • I would truly agree with the fact that whatever is in that graveyard is not friendly or welcoming to guests. I have lived in that area most of my life. I have been to the graveyard many times. I have heard many things there. Screams, thugs moving around you and things being thrown. I have wotnessed people pushed because they knocked the graves over. If you are there late at night and you touch the witches head stone just be prepared because it is a feeling you won’t soon get rid of. It feels like you have a massive amount of negativity crushing you.

    • We take go to alot of haunted and historical places in upstate ny and today we went to Connecticut hill cemetery. We didn’t have any insane sightings but that place is CREEPY we heard a woman scream several times and now reading the comments im guessing it was a big cat somewhere off on the side of the hill. There’s a grave in the cemetery “im guessing the witches” marked Elizabeth with what looks to be offerings left by people. The place seems legit and its worth going if you’ve got the rite car and depending the direction you come. The way my gps took me almost swallowed a subaru. Don’t bring a Honda.

  4. This all sounds very interesting. What did this figure look like? I have ancestors that came from the area. I am wondering how old the cemetery is and if it served Millport in the early 1800’s

  5. My friend Timothy Holmes and I were investigating the Connecticut Hill Cemetery on April 4th, 2015. There was about 6inches of snow on the ground at the time. We had a hell of a time making it to the cemetery due to the slippery and icy roads at the time. We eventually made it by taking the long way around into the cemetery. I think our investigation of the cemetery lasted about thirty minutes due to the fact that it was pretty cold up there. A few minutes before we left the cemetery Tim was filming the sb-7 spirit box session we were doing. When we got back home my friend and I reviewed the footage Tim had filmed and in the background there is a dark black shadow figure that moves between the trees almost as if it’s gliding above the ground but still stepping when moving. The footage is on YouTube under Tim Holmes or Timothy Holmes

  6. I used to go to Connecticut hill with my friends in high school around 2000-2002. We would explore the network of roads and trails, looking for anything interesting. We would often visit the main cemetery at the T intersection most people know about. We also found 2 more smaller graveyards deeper in the woods.
    About a half mile down the road from the cemetery (if the cemetery is on your left) my friend and I were exploring a field next to a little turn off on the left side. It was summer and we could tell the field was probably a little swampy but had dried out a bit. In the far right corner of the field we noticed a faint trail leading into the woods. We followed it for maybe a few hundred yards. There were two ruts from tire tracks, but were pretty old since there were 4+ inch wide trees growing out of. The trail ended at an old rusty pickup truck, yellow paint, looked like 60s or 70s. The truck looked like it had gotten stuck in the mud, only the tops of the tires were sticking out. The truck also looked like it had been set on fire at some point. The entire exterior was charred and all that was in there were the coils from the seat and the metal rim of the steering wheel. And some trees and saplings were growing up through holes in the rusted out bed.
    All this on its own was mostly just neat and interesting to us as teenagers. About 6 months later it was the middle of winter and weny back just out of boredom. We went trudging back there in the snow. Everything looked the same, the narrow trail looked like no one had been back there. The small trees were still growing up out of the old tire tracks. When we got to the end the truck was gone. This really puzzled us since there wasn’t anywhere for a tow truck could get back there between the trees. We looked around for a bit and off to the side of the trail maybe 30-40 feet was the truck crumpled and folded into a tight heap like it was a soda can picked up out of the ground, crushed, and tossed off into the woods without disturbing a single tree.
    My friend and I have both moved away from the area but still talk about it and curious if it’s still there at all.

  7. around 2006, we wnt into the witch cemetery thinking ..haha….as we approached, my spot light dimmed, in further, it was totally drained…as we walked back to the car, it worked fine, went back, same died…very strange

  8. I knew nothing about this activity until after my experiences which caused me to investigate. Basically . Whenever I would drive in that area of west hill or Connecticut hill I would get very panicky to the point of having to pull over . My stomach would cramp and I would just feel dread and sick. My research mentioned “Sullivan Trail” . General Sullivan massacre of native American settlement in that area.

  9. My friend and I went up to Connecticut Hill to the cemetery on 2 different occasions. The first time we took my car. We were driving and the sunroof opened by itself. The second time we took an SUV and both the driver and passenger front windows went down by themselves multiple times. I have been visiting the hill for many years. I used to hunt up there…also threw a few parties. Some things are unexplained and a bit scary but it hasn’t stopped us from visiting through out the years.

  10. Very creepy place, went in the cemetary not too long ago and had a flash light die when it had new batteries in. The place has a very unwelcoming feel to it, the feeling if you’re not suppose to be there at all. Creepy place, would reccomend checking it out, with caution!

  11. We went all over the place up there for hours and never found a thing. Is the cemetery deep in the woods off the road? The gps would say we had arrived at our destination but we checked it out and…no cemetery. Can anyone help? I really want to find it.

    • K. Wood, the cemetery is not “deep in the woods,” but it’s not very visible from the road. As far as I know, it doesn’t have an actual address. The only way I’ve ever found it is to go out there and just drive around slowly until I saw it. I think there were little American flags stuck in the ground outside of it last time I was there.

  12. I have done a total of 8 investigations here. I have many audio and photos. All which provide evidence. This is one of my favorite places to go.. If anybody goes there respect the place and do not take or remove ANYTHING.. There are attachments and u do not want that.. Here s a few photos with the most orbs I have ever saw. I will keep 2 photos private.. Hope you enjoy my youtube channel will be open soon so that you may view all videos and photos from all locations. Enjoy

  13. I went to the witch’s grave and touched the stone and was in a daze and felt alot if negativity. Couldn’t move from the grave it was like I was attached. Like she wanted me to stay

  14. Have been to this many times. Never had bad experiences , but have had many interactions. We use a mag light for communication. When the answer to one of our questions is yes , we ask for the light to be turned on. We communicated with “Elizabeth” the so called witch. We asked if she was a witch and the light came on. We asked if she was an evil witch and the light stayed off. We asked if she was a “good witch” and practiced Wicca , and the light came on ! When we go now , she seems to like talking with us. When we ask her if she would like us to leave, the light stays off, when we ask if she would like us to stay and talk with us, the light goes on ! There is a male spirit that does interfere with her. We are thinking it may be her husband. We have many videos of the light coming on and turning off while answering questions. I think a lot of the negativity is caused by certain groups going up there for the wrong reasons and opening portals and allowing “unwanted” entities to come through. Be careful what you ask for, because you may just get it !!!

    • Wicca as a religion was invented in the 1950s, so it seems dubious that someone who died before then knew what it is, much less admitted to practicing it.

  15. I have gone to the hill most of my life. My friends and I camped there every summer all through our teens. We saw some really weird stuff but for is it was never threatening. I now live at the bottom of the hill and tell my kids all the stories from my younger days (about 15 years ago). At the main graveyard we always felt the witch but while super creepy we never felt she was evil.

  16. My name is Owen. Before my friends and i turned 21 in abojt 2007 we would go up to the hill and find a spot to party. We found a good pull off that wasnt too far from the town of cayutaville and it became our spot. The second or third time we were there we had about 8 people with us. A few were from watkins and the rest from Odessa. So here is how it went… This pull off was the only entrance to a field and the field was about 40 yds from the road…so we would park our vehicles at the road and up through the pull off to the field. Completely blocking any traffic coming from the road. So we had a fire going for about an hour or so and everything was normal. From across the field we can see headlights coming. We all freak out thinking the cops were on a stake out. We couldn’t go anywhere because our vehicles were all jammed up. It wasn’t the cops. It was a large car… 1978 Chevy caprice classic i think. It ended up driving into our fire and sat with the engine over the fire for about 5 seconds. No joke. Everyone there yelled to get out of the fire. They backed up and got out of the car. There were two males older than me but not by much. I was def off put. The taller man looked like he fought in the civil war. He was white, bearded, brown hair, filthy and his clothes were so out dated. He was very quiet and i remember him wearing a short brimmed hat and he said he lived near 13. The other guy was maybe 25 5’9″ white, blonde, and had a hi n tight /crew cut. He was the driver and did most of the talking. He seemed drunk and made me feel very unsteady. His clothing style could have been anywhere from 1950 to 2000. I wish I could remember his shoes but I was so focused on his friend. I remember asking them how they got into the field but I honestly don’t remember them answering.They were driving a rear wheel drive car in a field and the roads are all seasonal. I know I didn’t drink that much that evening because we drove home. Anyway that experience was the oddest one I have had there. I have many friends who have seen the cross dresser that walks the hill.

  17. I for one, will never go to this place again. As most that have been here know, there have been “certain types” of visitors that come for the wrong reasons. I know that portals have been opened and something has been summoned. The last time we were there, we were using a maglight to communicate with the spirits there. All of a sudden everything stopped. Nothing !. We turned on the spirit box and asked who was there with us. The answer came as clear as can be…..”demon”. I commanded in the name of Jesus Christ, who was there with us. The name came on three different occasions. Not on the spirit box but as an evp on the recorder. The name starts with a “z” . For anyone that knows anything about the paranormal, this is a know demon .

  18. Hello my name Beverly kattke I’m reaching out to see if anyone else has had the same experience I did I was up at Connecticut hill for my first time very excited hoping to see something after all the research I did on the hill I went up with 4 of my friends just as we were leaving I shouted stop the car as I notice 3 green lights over the trees me and my friend who is now my boyfriend were always very intrigued by any paranormal or conspiracy theories we hoped out of the car shouting to this light in the sky i continued to hover these light were an a triangle or form I have a very decent video of this sighting in reaching out to see if anyone else has had this experience or if anyone would like additional information please contact me 2517525381 or contact me on Facebook at Beverly kattke

  19. I was hiking on a 5.5 mile loop today on the west side of the hill near Alpine today and ran into some hunters who asked me if I knew about the witch. I’d never heard about this so I googled it to see what I could find out about it.
    My experience is thus: I’ve been going up there for 22 years now, running, driving around, foraging plants and mushrooms, riding horses and in general just soaking in the energy of the hill. I’d like to share a ghost story, but honestly the only vibe I’ve gotten up there is one of great peace and serenity. Its pretty much the main reason I have chosen to stay in the area. While I can feel the history of settlers and potato farmers who once lived up on the mountain, mostlyI have the sense of the natives that used to live there. I’m drawn back time and time again to the hemlock forests and the wildness of the land. I have seen “wild” dogs running around, just two weeks ago one joined me for a 2.5 mile snowshoe. If you are on Boylan near Lloyd Stark or further up the mountain there’s a native guy who owns property who’s dogs run free. They are all huge but ridiculously friendly. And boy do they roam.

    When I first moved to the area, living at the base of the hill, I hiked up and camped overnight alone. I wish I had a scary story, and trust me, no joke, I lived in a haunted house in my early 20’s so I would tell one if I could.

    The only time I was unnerved was after running into a group of random men who seemed to be from out of state. They were standing around an expensive SUV, were well dressed and smoking cigars. As a woman alone, running through the woods, I was more afraid of them than any spirits.

    Maybe I’m just incredibly attuned into the land and the spirits leave me alone, maybe I’m a kindred witch? That said, I kind of wish I hadn’t heard about any ghosts, witches and haunting stories.

    • I just went up there for the first time this may to turkey hunt for about a dozen times and fell in love with it. Kinda wish I didn’t hear all these creepy stories bc it fells so peaceful. Also nobody was up there just a few people over the 12x kind disappointed so many people go up there.

  20. My son in law had read about this area and together with him, his wife, myself, my husband and two granddaughters drove up to the cemetery on 29 December ( we were visiting from the UK). My eldest granddaughter would not get out of the car. The remainder of us did and walked around the various graves. We saw nothing, but the minute we started to walk around the area the trees were all rustling although there was no movement of any trees. My youngest granddaughter took a video of the graves and on looking at this one area there was a round blurred spot but everything else quite clear. There was certainly the feeling of an eerie presence and I have to say I was pleased to leave the hill and get back to the main roads.

  21. My buddy and I have been hunting up there for over 20 years every November. Saw and harvested plenty of deer. Saw lots of turkeys and some coyotes also. Heard about the Bigfoot rumors. Never saw evidence or heard anything. Got my trusty Model 70 30.06 loaded by my side Never felt threatened!! We hit the woods at 0430 and don’t leave until about 1700. P.S. Nice place on the square of Odessa for a nightcap and food.

  22. In about 1995/96 early Fall, a group of friends and I drove up to see what all the lore was about. I am born and raised in the area and was always interested. We heard about the cult and about the Witch, and a few other things.
    Our visit was no more than simply creepy. We found the place where the cemetary is. The are had hanging doll heads, cat caucuses, other animal bones in the trees above our heads, hand made steak like pitch fork things leading a pathway to the cemetery, and a nasty odor as we walked through this. We also hear unexplained noises and growls and felt very uneasy.
    We got to the cemetery only to find so much desecration of the headstones. And the spookiest part was when one of my friends fell, yes fell, into the grave marked for the witch who’s head stone had been knocked into her grave as well. It was about 4 ft deep. My friends back landed on the witchs headstone.
    In the few moments my friend was in her grave he said he felt a mix of emotions from dread, fear, and death to peace, ease, and love.
    So we tried to lift her headstone back up into its proper place but it was too heavy. As we all touched the stone, there was a slight glow where each of our hands were touching the stone as we pushed and pulled. The glow lasted only a few seconds after we removed our hands.
    It was gross that someone dug her up, or attempted. (I see people posted photos of her headstone recently and I wonder who fixed it and if they filled in her grave. I am glad someone did.)

  23. Visited the cemetery today for the first time. I would strongly advise entering from the Northeast on Boylan Rd as the others (all named Connecticut Hill Rd) are in pretty poor condition and gave even my SUV difficulty.

    The cemetery itself is interesting, I’ve never seen one in such a state of disrepair. Some of the photos of headstones in this thread from even a year or two ago are heartbreaking, because many of these stones are now in pieces and laying on the ground. Seriously, it looks like someone or a group of people went through and smashed most of the stones, which is despicable—disrespectful to the people interred there and it robs the rest of us from seeing a piece of local history. The “witch” headstone, belonging to someone named Elizabeth, is surrounded by items I assume were meant as offerings but end up just looking like garbage left amongst the rubble.

    I didn’t feel anything supernatural about the area, just a profound sense of sadness looking at the damage caused to the past by people from the present.

  24. Went up there a couple days ago.Never again.The roads are shot.My tiny Cavalier almost got sucked into the ruts.The lower part of Conn hill rd is a total joke and I have no idea how I actually went down it other than the fact that you have no choice.Turning around isnt an option.As for the cemetary itself,I saw nothing out of the ordinary.Theres only a few stones that someone had recently put flags on.Didnt touch the witches stone as I had enough bad luck at that point.Actually 1 weird thing did happen…the video I took of it mysteriously disappeared off my phone.

  25. So i lived in 3840 n main St Burdett ny for a good chunk of my childhood. There was a closed bridge (now a walking bridge) right next to my house that went over a creek. Across the street from my house is an old school that’s abandoned with an overgrown playground out back and a baseball field all the kids would play at. One night i was woken up at about 3 am, i was about 7-8.. i heard someone singing lullabies. I looked at my alarm clock, it wasn’t going off… peeked my head out of my bedroom door thinking maybe it was coming from my parents room, nope. Went back and looked out of my bedroom window that looks across to the school house, and there was was clear, bright blue like LED style of lighting, lighting up the entire creekbanks next to the school (almost impossible to get to and also it was like 1995… there were no civilians with LED lights. So i just watched out of my window as the singing continued and i finally like ruined my eyes and decided to go back to bed. Anyone else had that happen?!?! I’m 32 now and can still remember it like it was yesterday.

    Also, burnt hill in Burdett is one of the most haunted hills in Burdett. I have seen ghosts, heard talking, seen something run out of the woods at us, everything. We would go up there to camp out for the night when we got bored and the amount of times we were sent running off the hill are uncountable. Literally one of the scariest places on earth to me. There is a spot along the hill that i refuse to go at night, it looks like a pull off that was logged a little bit… but apparently some guy committed suicide up there by setting his car on fire with himself in it, apparently there’s been alien sightings there, and definitely ghost sightings. And I’ve never seen a big fit there, but if they’re anywhere, burnt hill would be perfect for them. Wouldn’t be surprised if that was the yelling and screaming that sent us running off the hill a bunch of times. I’ve heard Bobcat screams and mountain lions and bears and all kinds… these are like nothing I’ve ever heard before and they were like right behind us. Fuckk burdett.

  26. I grew up in Ithaca and in 1969 when I was 6 we moved to a farmhouse in Pony Hollow south of Newfield on Rte 13. I loved it there. We had many paranormal experiences in the house. We also UFO sightings – one once hovered over the back field for several minutes. We would have lights in the corn field at night coming from above but the sky was just pitch black – no stars just black. I hiked all over Connecticut Hill and behind us into the Arnot-Ogden Forest. Connecticut Hill was a depressing place – sort of void of feeling. I learned later on that due to a bad land deal in the early years of the 1800s the State of Connecticut reclaimed that area as theirs (Connecticut once claimed rights to most of what in NYS today). They basically forced the farmers and their families off the hill. It was ruinous for them and I think that is one reason the place has a feeling of sadness or a void. I knew all the old cemeteries, I liked reading the old stones and the epithets – and some looked like old logs from Woodmen of America burials or had elaborate carvings, and the dates seemed ancient to me. Our house was originally a millhouse. It had been built right on the bank of the old Creek. When Rte 13 was improved in the 1950s the creek was rerouted and no longer crossed under the old bridge running next to the house. The house had a gas station attached to the north facing wall and that “house” was moved across the street and became the Tudy residence. Everything changes eventually! There were three mills on that creek – Pony Hollow Creek I believe or Cayuga Creek, I can’t recall which name it had. Our house was the middle mill, then the dam for the upper mill was still there and we used to swim there until Dad put a pool in about 1973. And just SW of the corner of the barn was a cement foundation for the lower mill. There were several other barns on the property in the 1930s-50s. In the 1940s-1950s Mary and Lamont Swartwood operated a small mobile home park. Lamont’s family owned the farm from the time it was built in the 1830s or earlier. And up on the back hill his great aunt lived in a big home he said burned down when he was a kid. Her father planted the big pine trees on front of the house. They sold it to the Holub’s and my grandmother bought it from them under Moms name in 1968. The Swartwoods lived in a smaller home right next door to us. He told us he had an uncle who was killed in an accident in the barn . A hay hook pierced his head and killed him in the East wing of the barn in the 1800s. I think it was his brother who was hoisting the hay bales up the shoot and didn’t hear him until it was too late. The basement of the house had an artesian spring that ran down the inside north wall of basement closest to the road and drained into a small silver dollar sized hole in the dirt floor. We went they two small but scary tornados and two epic snow storms – the last one was the 1976-77 Blizzard. I was back in 2017 and took some photos of the house. It’s definitely changed. My folks were first ones to close in the front porch with framed-in storm windows. It sure helped keep it warmer in the winter months! We had s propane heater in the dining room and the heat would radiate up thru the floor grated into my bedroom. It was very cold in the winter months in the bedrooms. We had a resident poltergeist who liked to stack plates and glasses three feet high on the kitchen counter in the middle of the night. The hollow was a magical place and it could be very happy place but it could also be defensive and angry. Outside human interference always pissed off the spirits. Changes to the land and disregard of the flora and fauna caused problems always.

    • I enjoyed reading your story and history about the area. I have been hoping to read some recent stories, I haven’t been up there in a few years but have been up there about 20 times ‘ 3 times having paranormal experiences, I am a Bigfoot enthusiast, although I have yet to see one I did hear knocks up there about 2 am. I also heard growls that scared the shit out of me. To me they sounded demonic and I left . I believe there are ghosts but don’t like messing with that stuff for fear of attaching something, I saw orbs on a video a we took in the graveyard, I spoke out loud and said I meant no disrespect to any spirits and said I was just curious about the history, I said a small prayer and didn’t have any problems. Thanks again for your story. Pat
