  1. My friends and I, attend MNSU Mankato, and we went to this cemetery, during Halloween earlier this year, to check out it’s “haunted origins. We were all a little skeptical. It was roughly 1:30-2am when the eight of us entered the cemetery; as soon as we delved further we felt as though the temperature dropped about 10-15 degrees, it was bone chilling. We started wondering around, nothing much going on, but as we were heading back to our cars we heard very loud howls, from wolves, all around us. Couple of us ran, to the cars, while a large majority of us saw a transparent figure, representing a lady garbed in white, off in the distance. The group that saw this figure, about 6 people in all, said that when they shined their flashlight on the lady, she vanished, only to appear much closer when they turned off their flashlight. No one was in real danger, looking back haha, but it was a weird experience and I don’t see myself going back anytime soon. Above all else, the main thing about this place is a feeling of sadness and discomfort, upon entering. Maybe, if any spirits linger here they are not so welcoming of guests. Nonetheless, it was an interesting experience.

  2. I grew up in St. Peter and when I attended school there we would hear stories about this place all the time. When we could drive on our own we would go out To the cemeteries and check them out. I personally never experienced anything other than a change in the atmosphere. But I knew a couple of girls that went out there and they took a picture and in the back window you can make out a face. Creepiest thing ever. There’s also another cemetery outside of town. I believe it’s the state hospital cemetery. Super creepy

  3. Happy Halloween… 10/31/17
    My wife and I visited Minnesota’s 2nd oldest cemetery on 9/22/17. After looking at the pictures we took that day, I found that one picture had a paranormal anomaly. You can clearly see a large mist like
    object in the tree top above the sign. I took this before we entered the cemetery. We did not see it visibly with our eyes. Enlarge picture to to see it. The sky as you can see was clear and it was not fog, smoke or clouds. This picture was not photoshopped or altered either. Spooky huh?

    Minnesota’s second oldest cemetery, founded in 1854. Greenlawn Cemetery contains graves of missionaries to the Dakota, 13 Civil War veterans and even one War of 1812 veteran, as well as early pioneers.

  4. Sorry but the picture looks like something on your windshield.
    I’ve been here several times and never felt anything in a haunted nature. However this cemetery has a great historical significance. I found several figures that were mentioned in the writings in story of Henry Sibley buried there.
