  • Perception is the key

    Depending on how you look at it this place can be intimidating, however I visited this location and found it educational, saddened by the lives lost at such a young age but understanding that at those times there were alot of events occuring.

  • There’s something there!

    I remember when I was a teenager going to this place with a photography group. I was the youngest in this group among the middle aged men and women that were doing this as a past time. I think I was either 14 or 15 since I was too young to have a driver’s license and my mom wanted to go. We both had a love of cemeteries and i wanted to come. However, as soon as we entered the church, I immediately felt like the air was thick and hard to breathe despite not believing in ghosts at the time. I was told how not only was the church and cemetery haunted but the road was haunted as well but I didn’t believe their stories. I figured they were just trying to scare me because I was the baby of the bunch. As we explored the church, I remember feeling like something else was watching me despite being in a group of people that I was familiar with. I wasn’t getting good vibes no matter where I went with people. I didn’t dare to be alone the whole time. Then, when we were about to take a group picture the tripod fell over despite our photography leader not being anywhere near it. However, I dismissed that as him accidentally tripping on the tripod in his rush to get into the group photo. As we went to the cemetery to explore some more, I felt nauseous the further back we got to the graveyard. We specifically stopped by a gravestone named Sarah where she was allegedly a witch that was buried in there. Her gravestone at the time had someone’s forearm smacked across her name like they put it in a bucket of bleach with the droplets dripping down her gravestone. I don’t remember her last name unfortunately. But it was suffocating back there. However, the creepiest part that made my mother and I want to leave was as the sun was starting to go down, all of the car alarms suddenly went off all at once. Even the skeptical teenage me was starting to think something was definitely going on and the wind was starting to pick up. I tried to justify it but my mother told me there was no way only wind could set off multiple cars off at once. We left not long after that. It wasn’t until we left I felt like I could finally breathe. Even to this day at 28 years old at the time of this post, it still gives me an uneasy feeling just talking about it. I nearly forgot about this place if it weren’t just talking to my friends about it. I will never forget the creepy black arching gate. As soon as I saw the picture, all those disturbing feelings came back to me like a flood. Please, whatever you do, do NOT go there alone and never go there at night! In fact, don’t go there at all! There’s something there that cannot be explained and whatever it is, it’s not good.

  • Evil

    This place is with out a doubt haunted. I have been multiple times day and night and horrible things have happened each time. This place has an evil entity and some none evil spirits. I dont recommend this place for the weak.

  • What a beautiful Church!

    This church is beautiful and as un-haunted as you can get.

  • Evil

    I couldn't even bring myself to get out of the car. As soon as I turned on the road the church is on I got nauseous. We saw a dark figure in the cemetery behind the church. I will never go back here. It's an evil place. Nothing about this place feels right.
