Considered by locals, visitors and paranormal
investigators world wide as actually the most
haunted cemetery in the world and the No. # 1
haunted Cemetery in all the United States. Multiple
ghosts are said to haunt this famous New Orleans
cemetery, You can also visit the haunted tomb
of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau.
Before the introduction of modern drainage, the
high water table of New Orleans made burials impractical:
you could dig into the marshy ground and inter
a corpse, but it would probably float past you
after the next heavy storm. The solution was to
bury people above ground, in tombs and mausoleums.
In doing so, the people of New Orleans created
some of the most evocative, and hauntingly beautiful,
locations anywhere in the world. These sprawling
and maze-like necropoli have been the home of
many ghost stories, but one location dominates:
Cemetery St Louis No. 1. is the most haunted.
The oldest cemetery in New Orleans, is a grand
European mixture of ornate marble tombs, crumbling
memorials and narrow, winding footpaths. Some
visitors have heard weeping and groaning from
inside the crypts, while many have seen a range
of spectral phenomena, ranging from unusual mists
to fully fledged transparent figures. An old male
face is reputed to manifest on the walls of one
particular tomb, but one ghost dominates all others:
the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans.
Marie Laveau Tomb Ghost Pictures VISIT HERE
Although the truth of her life is firmly obscured
by folklore, there most definitely was a Marie
Laveau and a Marie Laveau II (buried in St. Louis
Cemetery no.2), Voodoo Priestess'. Whether she
really did live to over a hundred while retaining
the lithe, sensual, body of a young woman is entirely
open to debate, but this Voodoo ‘Queen’
certainly left her mark on New Orleans culture.
People still visit her tomb to seek assistance
in their hoodoo voodoo rituals, leaving small
tributes and marking signs with powdery stone.
Disturbingly, Laveau also appears to frequent
the cemetery, as the stream of sightings which
began after her death in 1881 have never actually
A Marie Laveau Ritual is held every year by local
Voodoo Priestess Manbo Sallie Ann Glassman visit
here for more info.)
This old New Orleans' graveyard is
said to be haunted by the ghost of the Voodoo Queen
of New Orleans, Marie Laveau. Her spirit has been
reported inside of the cemetery, walking between
the tombs wearing a red and white turban with seven
knots in it, and mumbling a original New Orleans
Santeria Hoodoo Voodoo curse to Cemetery trespassers.
Her Voodoo curse is said to be very loud and very
audible, heard often by passerby's on nearby Rampart
Street. Locals say this has started in recent years
for she is alarmed by the many vandals and state
of the cemetery.
Voudon Believers, Tourist and locals
still come to Marie Laveaus' tomb daily to leave
many, many Voodoo offerings. (candles, flowers,
monkey and the cock wish statue
voodoo hex curio good luck charm, Mardi Gras beads
and parade Krewe dabloons, Gris Gris bags, money,
Voodoo dolls, Zombie bottle wish dolls and food)
All in hopes of being blessed by her supernatural
powers from beyond the grave. Many make a wish at
her tomb marking three X's. while others say they
have her Ghost, or that of a large Boa constrictors
ghost draped over the tomb, on film emerging undead
from her tomb.
Voodooist of her very own New Orleans
Secret Hoodoo Voodoo Society ( still active in New
Orleans in the 21st century) say her soul appears
here often as a shiny large black Voodoo cat, with
fire red eyes. If you see this Werecat run! One
New Orleans Voodoo Manbo suggest upon seeing this
Devil cat, cross your self three times and back
away. One should never let the cat see your back.
If Marie's spirit, or Devil cat sees it... you will
be cursed for ever to do her bidding.
Others say Marie Laveaus' familiar,
her large snake that she called Zombi, (or spelled
Zombie, or Zomby) is buried in the tomb with her
body. One voodooist says he was placed in the coffin
alive with Marie's dead body by her daughter Marie
Laveau II . A story or two have been told over the
years of people seeing a large dark boa constrictor,
or black anaconda over 12 feet long slithering amongst
and between or through the tombs tight small allies.
Always close to Marie Laveaus' tomb is Zombi, guarding
it night and day. local New Orleans Voodooist say
this is a great ghost snake spirit, her voodoo familiar
and not a real live snake. A few young teenaged
boys on a recent Haunted cemetery tour tried to
catch Zombi, they said they chased him down a tight
alley and Zombi just disappeared. Zombi's ghost
has been said to be seen high atop Marie Laveaus'
tomb basking in the noon day Sun. He protects her
tomb from those that mock her, says many of the
Voodooist of Marie Laveaus secret Society. One tale
of this ghost snake tells that Zombi followed a
recent New Orleans visitor back to her hotel room
who made fun of the tomb and her legendary Voodoo
magic. He appeared in bed with her as she slept
and began to wrap his coils around her as she slept,
Zombi frightened her out of her wits. The reason,
she spit on Marie Laveaus grave.
Often stories or told of Ghostly nude
Voodoo Pracaticioners in an eternal dark secret
Voodoo hoodoo Ritual. Always after midnight voodoo
drumming and screams well into the early morning
hours. With Marie Laveaus' ghost dressed in white
presiding over the ritual. Nude Voodoo Ghost dancers,
male and female can be seen and heard in an orgy
of spiritual Voodoo calling down the great powers.
Many times fine china plates and cups
and saucers and ornate silverware or found through
out St Louis No.1 graveyard often. Paranormal Investigators
say this is part of the ancient wiccan practice
of the occult. It is called the" Dumb Supper"
or Feast la morte. This is an old ritual, a mock
table setting of a meal set on the ground before
a tomb or atop of a grave. Two empty plates filled
with invisible ghostly food. It is usually a setting
for the ghost and the a setting for the person who
questions the ghost. This is to call the dead to
answer your most sought after questions. Sometimes
wine glasses or even bottles of rum and or wine,
cigars or packs of cigarettes, bags of chips, or
candy or even many times a loaf of french bread.
All this can be found placed before many of it's
tombs. Visitors think it's litter, but if you look
at how it is placed you then realize it is a special
ghost offering to the spirits of the cemetery.

Haunted America's Most Haunted Cemetery
- Kansas City, Haunted Kansas
It's infamous nicknames are The Seven Lost Gates
of Hell, The Cemetery of The Damned, Satan's Burial
Ground and most notably The Seventh Gate to Hell.
Stull cemetery is often said to be where Satan the
Devil himself holds court with his lost worshippers.
The devil's only
half human haunted child is reported to be buried
here in Haunted Kansas. They say he appears as a
9 -11 year old boy, he was believed to be able to
turn himself into a dog, a cat or a wolf. Basically
a werewolf or just plain shape shifter. Many stories
say he was born covered with long red hair and a
full set of two rows of double teeth. His story
is sad. He was an out cast chained under the house,
and thrown scraps of food like a wild animal, since
he was an infant.
One day when he
was about 10 years old he chewed off his left hand
and escaped and tore through the town killing someone
who he met. He was finally killed after a 11 month
killing spree by a lone farmer.
Ghost stories state
he was a hermaphrodite. At the spring and autumn
equinoxes evil forces, orbs and lights are suppose
to materialize in this Haunted Cemetery near or
over his grave, which is unmarked.
And don't forget
that of Witch a awful lady ghost who is said to
curse at you for stepping on her grave. She is said
to appear as a tall lady with white hair. EVP's
of her can be heard to say "Keep Away From
My Bones." and " Watch Your step."
They say she hated her last husband who is buried
next to her and often the soil seems pushed up where
he is buried. Many say she is trying to get him
to move elsewhere.
Stull Cemetery, and
the abandoned church that rests next to it, is located
in the tiny, Kansas town of Stull. There is not
much left of the tiny village, save for a few houses,
the newer church and about twenty residents. However,
the population of the place allegedly contains a
number of residents that are from beyond this world!
In addition to its
human inhabitants, the town is also home to a number
of Haunted legends and strange tales that are linked
to the crumbling old church and the overgrown cemetery
that can be found atop Stull’s Emmanuel Hill.
These stories have been linked to
Stull for more than 100 years. In November 1974,
an article appeared in the University of Kansas
student newspaper that spoke of a number of strange
occurrences in the Stull churchyard. According to
the article, Stull was “haunted by diabolical,
supernatural happenings” and the asserted
that the cemetery was one of the two places on earth
where the devil appears in person two times each
But such stories have a strong hold
on people, as evidenced by the reaction to the article
that claimed that the devil would appear in Stull
Cemetery on the night of the Spring Equinox and
again on Halloween. On March 20, 1978, more than
150 people waited in the cemetery for the arrival
of the devil. The word also spread that the spirits
of those who died violent deaths, and were buried
there, would return from the grave.
The legends also say that the Devil
has been appearing here since the 1850’s and
insist that the original name of the town was “Skull”
and that the later corruption of that into “Stull”
was simply to cover the fact that the area was steeped
in black magic. It was said that the witchcraft-practicing
early settlers were so repentant about their past
deeds that they changed the name of the town. In
truth, the town was called “Deer Creek Community”
until 1899, when the last name of the first postmaster,
Sylvester Stull, was adopted as the name of the
village. The post office closed down in 1903, but
the name stuck.
In 1980, an article appeared in the
Kansas City Times, rumors about Stull Cemetery and
the abandoned church. The article states that the
Devil chose two places to appear on Earth every
Halloween. One of them was the “tumbleweed
hamlet” of Stull, Kansas, which occurs simultaneously
at midnight, is someplace on the “desolate
plain of India.” From these sites, according
to the article, the Devil gathers all the people
who died violent deaths over the past year for a
prance around the Earth at the witching hour.
The article adds that he appears
in Stull because of an event that took place in
the 1850’s, when “a stable hand allegedly
stabbed the mayor to death in the cemetery’s
old stone barn. Years later, the barn was converted
into a church, which in turn was gutted by fire.
A decaying wooden crucifix that still hands from
one wall is thought to sometimes turn upside-down
when passersby step into the building at midnight...”
The story neglects to mention that, historically
speaking, neither the Deer Creek Community nor Stull
have ever had an official mayor.
Author Lisa Hefner Heitz has collected
numerous legends that have added to the mythology
of Stull Cemetery. Some of them include the “fact”
that the Devil also appears at Stull on the last
night of winter or the first night of spring. He
comes to visit a witch that is buried there. Coincidentally,
an old tombstone bearing the name “Wittich”
is located fairly close to the old church. It should
also be mentioned that there are rumors that an
old tree in the graveyard, which was cut down a
year or so ago, was once used as a gallows for condemned
witches. There is also said to be a grave in the
cemetery that holds the bones of a “child
of Satan”, who was born of the Devil and a
witch. The child was so deformed that he only lived
for a few days and the body was buried in Stull.
Some say that his ghost may walk here, as there
supposedly was a photo taken a few years ago that
shows a “werewolf-like boy” peering
out from behind a tree.
One of the strangest stories about
Stull supposedly appeared in Time magazine in either
1993 or 1995 (depending on the version you hear).
This story claims that Pope John Paul II allegedly
ordered his private plane to fly around eastern
Kansas while on his way to a public appearance in
Colorado. The reason for this, the story claims,
was that the Pope did not want to fly over “unholy
The legends grew and by 1989, the
crowd at the graveyard on Halloween night had become
so overwhelming that the Douglas County sheriff's
department had to station deputies outside to send
people on their way. They handed out tickets for
criminal trespass to anyone caught on the property.
It was believed that nearly 500 people came to the
cemetery on Halloween night of 1988, doing damage
to the church and gravestones, prompting a police
response the following year.
As time passed, the local residents
grew more irritated that vandals and trespassers
were wreaking havoc in the cemetery where their
loved ones and ancestors were buried. Finally, a
chain link security fence was installed around the
grounds and although the area is still regularly
patrolled, the visits have died down somewhat, at
least outside of October. In addition, there have
been the signs posted against trespassing here and
locals have made it clear that visitors are not
We have no idea and local residents
are not talking. Strangely, although property owners
have spoken out against both vandals and the macabre
stories, they have done little to try and end the
legends for good. For example, as so many of the
paranormal events supposedly involve the ruin of
the old church, why not tear it down? The building
has been standing vacant 1922 and it has been badly
damaged by vandalism over the years. In 1996, the
remnants of the roof blew off and once exposed to
the elements, the interior walls have been damaged
by both weather and graffiti. Recently, a large
crack also opened in one of the stone walls after
the church was struck by lightning. So why not tear
it down before it falls down on its own? Wouldn’t
this bring an end to the demonic tales circulating
about the place? To make matters worse, why chase
away those who come to the cemetery at midnight
on Halloween to see the Devil appear? Why not simply
“control the chaos” and allow the curiosity-seekers
to see that no spirits will run rampant on that
fateful night? On Halloween night of 1999, reporters
from a local newspaper and a television news crew
joined a group of onlookers at the cemetery. Sheriff’s
deputies were on hand, but did not ask anyone to
leave until 11:30pm.
At precisely this moment, an unknown
representative for the cemetery owners appeared
and ordered everyone to leave the property. The
officers had no choice but to go along with their
wishes and the reporters and spectators had to leave.
As Stull Cemetery and the land around it is private
property, there was no option but to comply. The
owners stated, through the representative, that
they did not want media attention brought to the
graveyard because it attracts vandals.
According to the Lawrence (Kansas)
newspaper, the Journal-World, the old stone church
was mysterious torn down on Friday, March 29, 2002.
A man named Major Weiss, who owns the property,
along with two other people said that he did not
authorize the abandoned church to be destroyed.
Those who live nearby stated that they were also
unaware of the demolition, although one of them
did say that a wall of the church had collapsed
about two weeks before.
The spooky church is no more... although
the reputation of Stull Cemetery still remains!
The town of Stull is located about
ten miles west of Lawrence, Kansas in the northeast
part of the state. It can be found by traveling
west on Route 40 and then traveling straight west
to Stull. The town can be found on the northwestern
edge of Clinton Lake and close to the Clinton State
Park. Visitors to the cemetery are advised to go
there at their own risk.

to hide his face, he carries a silver cats head

Edgar Allan Poe.
Legend has it that the ghost of Edgar
Allan Poe has been seen near his grave and in the
catacombs of the church. The author died mysteriously
in Baltimore and thus came to be buried there. He
had lived in the city years before, but had only
been passing through when he perished under mysterious
circumstances. At the time of his death, Poe had
been on his way to New York to meet his beloved
He was bringing her back to Richmond,
Virginia, where the author was to marry his childhood
sweetheart. His first wife had perished from tuberculosis
years before. The trip came to a tragic conclusion
when, four days after reaching Baltimore, Poe was
found barely conscious and lying in a gutter on
East Lombard Street. He was rushed to a hospital
but he died a short time later. The entire time
in the hospital was spent with Poe crying and trembling
and he once screamed the name "Reynolds"...
although who this could have been also remains a
mystery. He died on October 7, 1849.

With local officials and friends and family at his
side to help, they removed her body from it's haunted
grave and the local medical doctor drained her organs
of the remaining blood at her fathers insistence.

of her body and grave has caused Mercy to appear,
and haunt in the graveyard at all hours of the day

blue lights moving in the graveyard near her grave.

Bachelor's Grove Cemetery - Near Haunted
Chicago: Said to be the most scariest haunted cemetery
in the U.S.A. Bachelor's Grove is located in the
suburbs of Chicago. It gained its name from the
number of single young men buried there during the
creation of Illionois-Michigan Canal. The graveyard
was taken out of commission in the mid 1960's but
it still maintains its haunted status. The Ghost
of George Harwell Federman, and Janet Lorraine Logan
or said to be the most seen ghost in the graveyard
and that their tombstones have been removed to keep
people from finding them. They are said to materialize
quite solid and real ... then just disappear before
your eyes. People say the ghost of a child can be
heard crying in the evening hours violently. And
that many say it's sounds too, to real to mark off
as an animal or a hoax.
Today, a section of the Cook County Forest Preserve
(at 143rd Street and Justamere Road) bears the name
Bachelors Grove in recognition of the early history
of the area. The last remaining section of roadway
known as Bachelors Grove Road, which ran between
135th Street and 143rd Street, was closed in December
1994. Cook County and the Forest Preserve District
have followed through with their intended removal
of the road, and another reminder of this piece
of local history will completely disappear in time.

President of the Tinley Park Historical Society:
settlement at Batchelors Grove began as early
as the late 1820s, with larger numbers of immigrants
arriving in the 1830s and 1840s. The initial settlers
were generally American "Yankees" of
English, Irish, and Scottish descent, most of
whom came here from New York, Vermont, and Connecticut.
The second wave of settlers arriving from Europe,
primarily of Germanic origin, began in the late
1840s and became the predominate nationality for
immigrants to the area for better than the next

area have reported seeing a phantom ghost farmhouse
that seems to appear and disappear at random. The
house is always described in the same way, as a
white house with porch pillars, a swing and a soft
light burning in the window, but it is never reported
in the same place. As witnesses approach the house,
it always disappears. A number of completely independent
witnesses have reported the house, not realizing
that it was unnatural (until it vanished) and all

Greenwood Cemetery - Haunted Decatur, Illinois
Long believed to be one of the most
haunted spots in downstate Illinois (if not the
Haunted Midwest), Haunted Greenwood Cemetery is
filled with legends and stories of ghosts and haunted
paranormal experiences that they say defy explanation.
Among them are the ghost of a young small boy who
has been seen walking among the graves. Many investigators
say he limps and is wearing torn to big for him
overalls. At times very angry and he will throw
things at you some say he will run up to you and
try to knock you down. One well known writer, Paranormal
Investigator states, he and his wife were both punched
very hard by him twice, And has the photo of a ghost
fist mark on his face. Michael is what he is called.
Many a person tells of the times they say Michael
has appeared near the cemetery gates and flung rocks
at passing cars. And many drivers they have the
shattered windshields to prove it.
Many ghostly spectral lights have
been witnessed, that are said to be the spirits
of flood victims. And the specter of a little girl
carrying a small doll is often seen hiding behind
a headstone weeping. Maggie Jane, she is called
will actually follow you and wave goodbye as you
leave. She is Known to remove flowers from others
graves and place them on her own. Investigators
in recent months say they bring flowers ,candy and
toys and leave them on her grave. And in a remarkable
recent EVP they say you can hear her say "
Thank you!" and giggle. Yes and as clear as
an actual person would sound. Maggie Jane is said
to like babies. One tale tells that a mourner brought
her young child to the cemetery with her and her
family. Suddenly this little girl just showed up
and wanted to hold the baby and play with the 10
month old. The young mother of the child even asked
Maggie her name. when ready to leave the cemetery
the young mother asked her where are you parents.
Maggie said to her, "Well, they don't come
to my grave in a long time." The startled young
woman just turned and ran.
Lost ghost Confederate soldiers who
were buried here in unmarked graves after being
taken from a derailed prison train are said to walk
the cemetery day and night. Many have been said
to be seen hiding along the road and behind tombstones
with bloodied gray clothes no shoes and large heavy
chains seen on their ankles.
A great old witch is said to be buried
here. Hilda is said to haunt the cemetery and if
a young married girl wants to give birth to a son
they say she should bring red roses to her grave.
And if she wants to have a girl she should bring
candy and place it on her grave. One tale of Hilda
tells how she will chase people out of the cemetery
after dark. and she has been known to throw things
at people. Visitors to the cemetery are advised
to go there at their own risk.

type guy with long light hair haunts the outside
graves. Running bare foot in bell bottoms and a
tied dyed shirt. or seen sitting alone smoking.
He just walks up to cemetery visitors and usually
asks for a light. Many startled mourners say he
will attend a funeral and walk up at the end of
services tap you on the shoulder ask for a light.
Simply it has been said that, you turn and he's
not there. Many call him by Grover, because he is
often seen all "over" the grounds.

Diane. Often the story of this lone specter tells
of a woman dressed in a pink long gown with beautiful
long hair and very over made up face, and that she
pays no attention to cars and will walk out in front

haunted cemetery. Then to simply disappears before

Haunted Salem Cemetery Salem
Ridge Road , Egypt Valley Wildlife Hendrysburg,
Ohio (Kirkwood Township, Belmont County)
Salem Cemetery is also known as Salem
Church and Salem Methodist Episcopal Cemetery. The
Salem Methodist Episcopal Church was located across
the road from the cemetery until it burned down
in the 1960s. There are lots of old gravestones,
and it is growing since it is still an active cemetery.
It is extremely well taken care of by the Kirkwood
Salem Cemetery is supposedly haunted
by the ghost of Louiza Catharine Fox, the first
person murdered in Kirkwood Township. She is buried
at Salem Cemetery, her gravestone is located at
the bottom of the hill in the older section of the
cemetery near a creepy old tree.
Many people have claimed to see Louiza
weeping at her grave. She also haunts her murder
site. Although the ghost of Louiza Catharine Fox
is the most popular haunting at this cemetery, there
are also a few other stories. One legend has it
that if you walk around the outside of the cemetery
six times you will disappear. There are also stories
about several old, unmarked graves that belong to
witches. The ghost of one witch is said to help
reunite broken hearted lovers if an apple is placed
on her grave. The other will help you gain quick
cash if you sprinkle pennies and sugar water over
her head stone. And the last will curse you if you
do not bring her sweet chocolates.
Many people claim to see packs of
large black and red ghost dogs, hell hounds or devil
dogs, running through the Haunted Cemetery area.
You can supposedly hear them growling and howling.
Others say they guard the many cemeteries in the
area from letting the ghost escape.
One haunted Ghost story tells of alvin
a lonely young man around 39 years of age who died
of a broken heart.Many a tale tells he chases after
young woman who visit and has been known to pinch
them on the butt.
There is also the interesting haunted
story of a truck driver who crashed into the cemetery,
when he fell asleep at the wheel. The truck driver
was not killed, but he did lose his arm. The arm
now haunts this cemetery, and the nails can be heard
clicking over the gravestones on quiet nights.
And finally, the last story about
this Haunted Cemetery has to do with a mysterious
Ghost house that appears at night in the middle
of the cemetery. There are always seven red candles
burning in the windows, but it disappears when people
approach it. Visitors to the cemetery are advised
to go there at their own risk.
