  1. I’ve been here before around 7pm, So there was alittle bit of light left. Just walked around for 5 minutes and felt as if someone was playing with my necklace.

  2. It’s really not that run down… I come from up north, Pennsylvania… Where every church has a cemetary from 18th-19th century and this place is actually not that bad when it comes to cemetary standards… I used to hang out here often as a teenager, and never experienced anything paranormal, however if you go to the very back and climg through the broken wall there is a field/ retention pond adjacent to sams club. All i gotta say is just spend 15min out there something will happen.

  3. That area between the cemetery and the old Walmart, where Burlington Coat Factory is now, is possessed by demon spirits. Sometimes they can appear at late hours of the night, like 3 or 4 a.m. and even incorporate themselves like a woman wondering the parking lots. Some of them are what I call “watchers” they are assigned to a specific spot to watch all activities. One of those spots is right in front of the new Wendy’s, where Crystals use to be before. There are a couple of dark spirits there assigned to watch. Be careful who you run in to asking for help in those areas. They might be demon spirits trying to lure you.
