  1. I am near this cemetery a lot because I work close by. One night I was sitting in my car across the street just after sunset. I got the urge to look over and my eyes met this extremely bright white light in the middle of a bunch of headstones not too far off. It was very bright and noticeable and I had definitely never noticed it before, it was low to the ground and stationary. As I watched the light it turned off and on several times then it just started flickering very fast at that point I got creeped out and left. I haven’t seen that light since.

  2. I couple of years ago. Before I bought a car. I was walking home. It was dark and rather then walking all the way around the cemetery from Oak Grove Ave to locust St, I decided I’d cut through the cemetery. Thought to myself, It”d be creepy, but it would save me a lot of time and walking. I entered from Oak Grove Ave and walked twords the little gate opening on locust St. As soon as I got kind of deep in there. I started to get an extreme uneasy feeling. Like I was being watched. I felt like I wasn’t alone. I started to hear footsteps to my left among the headstones. I couldn’t see past the first 2 rows. It was too dark. The steps seemed to be walking along side of me. Once twigs on the ground started snapping, from what sounded like someone walking. I really started to get scared. Then it also started happening on my right side also. I started to run. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. When I got to the gate on locust St it was closed & locked. My choices were to either go back the way I just came, or jump the fence/wall.. I jumped that fence. Screw going back. I’ll never go in that cemetery again after nightfall. It’s haunted !!!

  3. When me and my best friend were about 14-15… we are now 35 years old…. we went there to see Lizzie Borden’s grave… and being young and immature with not realizing how disrespectful it was… we both stood on her grave chanting the Lizzie Borden riddle… that night is a night we still talk about and never forget! When walking home we had this awful feeling come over us it got worse the longer we walked… we then started hearing chanting like as if it was on a loud speaker in a completely different language… we heard this from oak grove cemetery to Osborn street and even when we got home we could still hear it inside the house. We called other friends around the city to see if they could here it or if there was a possible loud concert somewhere… everyone thought we were crazy! This is a true story! We were in fact haunted that night by Lizzie! I will never ever forget this night and I am now 35 years of age! Scary stuff!
