Upon finding this website, I was shocked to find this location was not listed, as it is “well known” by locals to be noted as haunted. The experience I had there happened about 10 years ago. A friend and I were hanging out one night and decided to visit the grave of a friend who is buried there. We arrived at the cemetery at about 1 am. At first there was no sign of anything supernatural there. We began walking through the cemetery and the further we got into it a extremely uneasy feeling was very present with both of us. We could both plainly hear what sounded like leaves and twigs snapping behind us as if we were being followed by something unseen. We both saw out of the corner of our eyes “Dark shadowy figures” that appeared to be moving behind the trees and tombstones. As we arrived at the grave of our friend we sat there and had a cigarette. That is when we could hear what sounded like the laughter and snickering of children playing. That s when the uneasy feeling overtook us both and we both had the feeling that whatever is was that was there wanted us out. We began walking back to the gate at the main entrance. Both of us began to have the feeling that something was following us and it literally felt like pure evil. Our “walk” back to the entrance slowly turned into a run as we both were frightened. Then nearly at the same exact time, as we were almost back to the gate, we were both very violently shoved on the back causing us both to fall to the ground. We got up collected ourselves and both heard the rough voice of a man say very clearly “Get Out”. I have been back to the cemetery since but only during the daylight hours. Not sure what it is that is going on there at night but my friend and I both had the feeling that it was evil.
