A man in red will follow people around. Guests will see him in the corner of their eyes and sometimes start to feel unwelcomed.

  1. I visited in Fall of 2012. My mom was across the street at the Sequoia House. It got dark and I headed back to the main gate to find I’ve been locked in. I rush to the end of the cemetery to the back gate but find that also locked. As I approach the front gate again, a group of young men come from that area. They looked like trouble and were drinking so I avoided them. I could hear their voices and see the reflection and light of fire in the corner of the cemetery. I wandered around some looking for a way out. About 30 mins later I gave up and went to ask the group of men for help. I walked towards the voices and light of fire. When I got over the hill, the corner was completely empty. No fires or people were there. I could still hear a voice faintly. It sounded like it was being projected through a speaker phone, loud and muffled, but I couldn’t understnd it at all. It reminded me of someone giving a sermon at church. I freaked out, ran to the front gate, and climbed over the pretty big gate. I twisted my ankle but got out okay. I’d love to hear if anyone else had a similar experience with the voice I heard.

  3. Placerville Union Cemetery, originally called “Union Cemetery”, was created in 1871 by a group of fraternal organizations including the Free and Accepted Masons, the Druids, Oddfellows, Redmen, Eagles, Native Sons of the Golden West, and the Knights of Pythias. There was also a section for the Grand Army of the Republic.

    The first official burial in the cemetery took place in the Masonic section when John Roy was buried in May 12, 1871. A number of people were removed from other local cemeteries and re-interred in Placerville Union. The cemetery was run by the fraternal organizations until early 1960’s when it was turned over to private management.

  4. A demon resides here. For this I am certain. Large green eyes. Wide head. Pointed chin, horns. Rough grey skin and walks with inverted legs. When I saw it, it stood there and we stared at each other as it bobbed its head back and forth from behind a gravestone. Didnt seem to have any intent of harm. I will never forget that face for as long as I live.
