What’s the Spookiest Cemetery?

It’s hard for me to think about cemeteries as scary.  I haven’t ever had any truly frightening things happen to me in a graveyard (yet), but I certainly have gotten good and spooked a couple of times.

I’ve created a list of cemeteries connected to traditionally scary things — ghosts, vampires, mummies, voodoo — and some which encompass more modern fears:  natural disaster, plague, claustrophobia. Let me know what’s scariest for you.  And if you’d like links, let me know that, too.

Feel free to add anywhere I’ve missed — or tell your own TRUE spooky story — in the comments.

  1. I’ve been to one, maybe two that felt spooky. The one that comes readily to mind was a cemetery in Chicago, I think, but I’d have to ask the person I was with the name. It just had a vibe and I wouldn’t have been surprised to see a ghost. Like you, I don’t find cemeteries spooky. This was definitely an exception.

    The scariest cemetery is ‘Floater Cemetery where Smitty Wormenmanjensen is buried.
