  1. BE CAREFUL! Whoever owns/supervises the cemetery is on the warpath as far as keeping people out at night. Signs on the gate suggest there is video/camera surveillance, along with no trespassing. There is a house that is lived in very close to the cemetery, if they see you out there at night, the cops could very well be on their way. Just saying.

  2. I have actually seen heard and witnessed paranormal activities here. A few of my friends and I had gone up one night not being a believer of this place, had gone up and was back by some older Graves and we all seen our full names and birthdays and deaths on these stones. The dates however were from the 1800s and had our exact ages. It was creepy and made the hair on our necks stand up. We went back a few nights later with another friend and there was no sign of any of the stones.

  3. I went with a couple of friends. We were walking around trying to get a scare. I heard a dog bark, apparently these a pet cemetery behind it, and saw a red glowing light. When we went back down the hill there were two ladies loading there horse. One was hurt and said her horse fell on her. It was odd timing that we were leaving at the exact same time they were.

    • There is no pet cemetery there . I have gone there many times in both my childhood and adult hood to go hiking . There is a trail behind the cemetery. I don’t remember any pet cemetery .

  4. We went there around 11:00 at night. We had seen that it said that there were cameras and surveillance etc. But we didn’t go all that way for nothing ;). We pulled up our hoods so the “cameras” couldn’t see our face. We did not actually find any cameras. Probably a scare tactic or something. Anyhow, we walked around the cemetery for a good 30 minutes, didn’t find anything creepy, and no cops came. So don’t be scared to check this out! Although what we did find creepy is that someone had carved the number of each step up into the cemetery. Definitely a good spot to check out!
