Local legends abound about this cemetery known as Pioneers Rest Cemetery or Bandli Graveyard (after the family who maintains it). One says that a man killed his wife and four children and then hanged himself in his barn, next to the graveyard. Another claims that a Satanic cult used the barn for religious rituals. And a third story tells of two boys were playing tag here after dark when hand reached out of a grave and grabbed one boy’s ankle. He died of fright. The other boy’s body was found outside the graveyard. Some witnesses have reported apparitions, including that of a young girl sitting in a tree.
