Loon Lake Cemetery is said to be haunted–and dangerous. According to local lore, three witches were violently executed and were buried here, but not before threatening to curse anyone who desecrated their graves. Mary Jane, beheaded in 1881, was said to be the most powerful of the witches. Legend has it that treading on her final resting place will warrant death within 3 days. But since her headstone no longer stands, it is hard to find her grave. Reports say many of the stones have been removed; in fact, of the 67 tombstones that once were here, only 18 remain, all badly weathered. Perhaps it’s a good thing that getting to the old cemetery proves a bit difficult, as reports say it is inaccessible by car.
