Graceland Cemetery

You are here Home  > Cemeteries >  Graceland Cemetery

The spirit of Inez Clark lingers in this old cemetery. She was almost 7 years old when she was fatally struck by lightning at a picnic. There is a life-size statue of her on her gravesite, enclosed in glass. It is said that on rainy nights the statue disappears, and the apparition of a little girl can be seen walking around the cemetery.

    1. I’ve been there quite a few times and even, 40 years ago, climbed the wall after dark and spent the night there. Not a peep from any other-worldly visitors.
