The building is surrounded by a cemetery that dates back to the early 1800’s, and the church and cemetery have been abandoned for years. There have been many reports of hauntings here, including shuffling footsteps when no one is around, voices talking, screams and doors opening and closing by themselves. Many people have reported seeing a ghostly figure sitting at the piano, which sometimes plays by itself. Other people have reported seeing a figure in a hooded black cloak, standing in the church corners and not moving. When approached, it vanishes. Cold spots are felt in the church, and the feeling of being watched is reported by many who go there. Outside the church in the cemetery, people report hearing things walking around, and seeing shadowy apparitions moving around the gravestones.
