St. Philip's graveyard is a popular excursion on ghost tours. According to legend, the ghost of Sue Howard. In 1888 Howard gave birth to a stillborn and died of unknown circumstances ten days later. A century later, an amateur photographer was taking shots of the cemetery, completely unaware of any spectral presences. When the film was developed he noticed a shawl covered figure hunched over and seemingly mourning an infant's grave. The photograph has become famous for its ghostly image, drawing in ghost enthusiasts from all over. Visitors to the graveyard believe they have witnessed the apparitions of melancholic female ghost, believed to be Sue Howard mourning the death of her child.
