Ghostly children are said to be heard playing at this cemetery, known as Oxbow Cemetery, North Callahan Cemetery, Carter Cemetery and North Elmwood Cemetery. So the story goes, a nearby school collapsed in a big windstorm, pinning and killing a little girl named May Carter. Her father gave this land to be used as a cemetery, and she was the first to be buried here. Her tombstone is said to have since disappeared from the graveyard, as supposedly the grave was dug up by her family and taken back to Maine with them.
