  1. Me and three friends went just to check it out because of all the stories we’ve heard about it. We were there for about 15 minutes when we started to hear footsteps. We just shook it off as animals in the woods. As we went to leave I turned to read one of the graves and I heard something. It sounded like a quiet scream. I don’t know if it was actual words or what exactly it was. But it was enough to make us want to leave, in a hurry.

  2. We went there last night , tryed to get some evps nothing, I really didn’t see alot that scared us, it was the sounds of people walking constantly behind us. At one point in the investigation we got tired of it toying with us so we provoked it , all of the sudden this Huge wasp or bee thing came outa no where and started flying after me / around me….I was provoken …my buddy killed it tho but what’s weird Is…its winter time….bees are gone…….soooo after that and hearing those foot steps ..we gone lol

  3. is this a public cemetery or do you need permission to venture there? i’m part of a paranormal investigation team and we would like to check this place out seeing as there have been numerous reports. if permission is needed does anyone know whom i should contact?

    • You don’t need any permissions. Went there earlier today actually, not a person in sight. It’s quite hard to find if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for.

  4. I have been their 3 times the and the more we go their the more active it gets. While investigating doing a flash light test anlong doing evps it came on and then caught on the evp (hellen done it) look at the graves and couldn’t fine the names but some are so old u cant read them anymore so it very active site it get really creepy out their it so awesome should check it out for whoever is interested in the paranormal

  5. When I went there a few years back, I started getting Hot Flashes & Cold Sweats. Saw Red flashing eyes & this thing that went behind a tree & when I looked, there was a grave. When I was there, there was no Head Stones. Just rocks. Graves was sunk in sorta & this one grave having tree roots growing through it that looked like the Devil’s Horns.

  6. My friends and I stopped here a couple years ago on a road trip, out of curiosity. It’s open to the public, and the road passes right through the middle of it. We did notice that while standing in certain spots, the air felt dense and heavy, almost difficult to breathe. Every now and then we’d see something briefly darting out of the corners of our eyes. When we went back to the car, it was COVERED in flies for some reason. It may be haunted, maybe all these things are very explainable, but either way the cemetery is still beautiful and worth a visit.
