The Devil's Chair - Lake Helen Cassadaga Cemetery

You are here Home  > Cemeteries >  The Devil's Chair - Lake Helen Cassadaga Cemetery

In a town known for its haunts, the Lake Helen-Cassadaga Cemetery is home to the local legend’s Devil’s Chair. Gravestones date back to the 1800s; Cassadaga founder George Colby is buried here. Some folks say shadowy figures lurk here at night, but the Devil’s Chair is perhaps the most well-known tale from these parts. It was said to have been built for an elderly visitor to use while paying respects to his deceased wife, but local lore has spawned many legends about the chair. One is that if you leave an unopened beer can on it overnight, when you return the next morning you will find the can empty, although still sealed.

  1. While investigating the cemetery my group and I began hearing strange wailing from a distance, that seemed to increase every time we heard it. Upon sitting in the chair a strong gust of wind could be found that left upon standing up, no conversations with the Satan took place. However it did appear that someone else might have been there before us that very night.
