Old Sheldon Church Ruins

The Old Sheldon Church was housed in a church built in the mid-1700s. The British burned it in 1779, during the Revolutionary War, but was rebuilt in 1826, only to be burned again in the Civil War. It is said to be haunted by an unknown Pilgrim woman in a brown dress. Her apparition has been seen near the grave of an infant.

  1. I and my paranormal group has been here. let me say boldly its very haunted and creepy. we got an evp calling my wifes name got orbs blue and red. the blue one was captured moving around in the church along with the temp on are gauge going down all the way to 5 degrees. k2 and emf meters going off shadow figures, and rocks being throne at us.

  2. I didnt feel anything awkward while taking these photos, but i did take 3 one right after the other, because of the lighting. It was too dark in broad daylight was the reason i took 3. I ended up seeing this aftwr going through them later!

  3. The first one there appears to be something in the upper left corner. Neither of these things were visible while taking the pictures

  4. We all went there one night and had a big ol time. Versy got tight and started on Betty Jean but she ain’t havin it. Dontrae would stand by the road and do the helicopter cause he could. Take a cooler wid you cause you gonna need it. Go muddin first so you get all the girls worked up. They love it when you make it bounce. Makes em jiggle. I take deddys rifle out there n sight it in. There’s enough room to do that. Watch what direction you go cause there’s some houses around.
