  1. I Live Next to Riverside Cemetery and Trust Me Creepy Ass Stuff Happens There at night like Indian Characters and Army People and Crying Little Girls! I have been to A-LOT of haunted places in my life time but this was the creepiest then after I seen the Indian and Little girl they both like fought or something then The Grave That The Indian was Sitting On Wrote In Like Blood Looking Stuff “Get Our” It was SCARY!

  2. Just drove through the cemetery and there is for sure something by the mausoleum!! As soon as my car turned on to the street where the mausoleum is located something tapped my car the closer I got to the mausoleum the louder and more urgent the tapping (or at this point banging) got. I seriously could not get out of there fast enough!! Amazing but a little scary experience. As soon as I got a decent distance from the mausoleum the tapping stopped.

  3. If you sit out in the field on the far right of the cemetery where the grass and forest is at night, and you’re quiet, you can hear the chanting and drum music of the Winnebago Indians that lived in the area. It seems as though their rituals have been imprinted in the land.

    • My family are part of the native American Indians that lived around there and there are generations of my family buried there..native Indians are proud people and yes they believe very strongly in the after life..my dad’s family is one of the 4 or 5 family’s that started charles city..
