Historic Lorimier Cemetery from the early 1800s is home to a phenomenon known as the Tapping Ghost. It is a sensation of something tapping you on the shoulder, usually making visitors think a nut has fallen from a tree. The tapping repeats, usually until the visitor gets freaked out and hurries away. Female visitors also have experienced their hair being tugged.

  2. I was there yesterday late in the afternoon after a huge rainstorm all alone. It is def a creepy vibe, but I did not encounter anything unusual. All I could think about was the noise from the casino that now below it & less than a block away.
