One of the oldest in the U.S., this cemetery has a spooky story. It is said that a young woman once was being prepared for burial here, and during her funeral procession her forehead was accidentally punctured while passing under an Apopinax tree. She bled profusely; it was discovered that she was not actually dead, and she narrowly escaped from being buried alive. Six years later, the woman really did pass away and was buried in the cemetery. Witnesses say her apparition, as well as the apparitions of children, can be seen on the grounds.
