  1. Hill Park Cemetery is NOT haunted. At the end of 2011 I personally spent a lot of time there, say and night, with and without friends, and never experienced anything paranormal. I’m a believer in ghosts and the like and have had many paranormal experiences myself but none at this location.

  2. I was there alone when I had like a feeling I was being followed but I was the only one there. I saw a figured and I tried to move forward towards it but it vanished. Kinda creepy.
