  1. There is an Indian girl buried there and here stone is made of petrified wood. Older people say that the top of the stone used to come off and you could see straight down to her grave and ask her questions. The top.has since been cemented down, but you can still ask her questions and pos6geta answers through the birds and their feathers.

  2. I went there with a couple of my friends. We got out and it was super cold out, so we wanted to find this statue quick. We surprisingly found it after five to ten minutes of being there. We didn’t see anything paranormal there, but we didn’t want the trip to go to waste. I told them about the haunted lady on a horse that goes up and down the tracks. We walked across a cornfield and into a forest area until we found the tracks. We saw a train, and we climbed to the top. We looked up and down the tracks, and saw nothing. It still was a blast! Made a lot of memories that night.

  3. My cell phone listed this cemetery as my home address. I don’t recall visiting that cemetery or even going through the town. Strange….

  4. Wh1t3 H0us3 Paranormal did an investigation there (video on their youtube channel) this past spring. Granted there’s other chatter heard during the video, but twords the end when they are “saying goodbye” to the statue they caught manifestations of at least 7 spirits when they thought they were just seeing the eyes moving. That claim was verified by another investigator, Rick Waid, who reviewed the footage for credibility.
