  1. I don’t know about this cemetery being haunted or not but I can say the area surrounding is not cursed. I have lived in Naples for 14 years and all of the businesses that were there when I moved to Naples, are still there. I would hardly call that a curse!

  2. I’ve been in Naples since 1973 so I know a little about things that have gone on in that town. I remember this little cemetery well and on a few occasions have ‘seen’ things around there particularly on Halloween.

  3. Only after 50 plus years of visiting Naples, did I notice this mysterious cemetery, called Rosemary. I walked in and photographed it the next day. I went to the “well-known pharmacy” built on top of the original 20 acre graveyard and made a purchase. Employees I dealt with pretended they knew nothing about the Rosemary Cemetery right outside their front door. I later realized they simply shrugged off conversation about it, because they don’t want people to realize their store was built atop a graveyard. Well to make the story short, the store “bag” with 2 articles purchased, smelled of vomit and it was clean. I tossed it before making it to my car. I smelled the “articles purchased” and they didn’t wreak of that horrible smell. Driving about Naples, the same “vomit smell” re-entered my car and left. Later in the p.m., while in my bathroom, looking at a mirror, the stench hit my senses again, so I washed my face and nose. After a little perfume around the nose, the smell disappeared. If I come across that smell once more, I’m gonna have to find an exorcist or something. I wouldn’t go near that place within a 20 acre radius…

    • The cashier didn’t know anything because people don’t pay attention to the graveyard. No one knows about it’s history. No one cares it was built on a graveyard lol. It’s not that deep

  4. It’s not haunted and the same businesses have been there for 20+ years. There’s one restaurant that changes a lot near it but it wasn’t built on the cemetery property. Nothing mysterious happens there except for the person that puts toys on the children’s graves
