Dresden Cemetery

You are here Home  > Cemeteries >  Dresden Cemetery

Rumors have it that this cemetery was built on an old Native American burial ground and that behind the back chain link fence you can see the sunken in graves of slaves. I don’t know if any of this is true but the paranormal activity that occurs here cannot be denied. Faint music/chanting can be heard, things move around in the trees, dogs wail from nearby, and darting between tombstones are shadows.

The cemetery is fairly large. The oldest graves can be found to the left side and newer ones to the right.

The most interesting grave to me, is the tombstone of Carle Waits which claims he was murdered in 1917.
