IN THIS EPISODE: If there’s one thing on Earth that we can all agree is most likely to be haunted, it’s a graveyard. Since the advent of civilization we’ve gathered our dead and placed them in burial plots together. And it’s no surprise that people talk of the spirits that linger, not far from the final resting place of their bodies, perhaps clinging to life or serving as a grim omen for what’s to come when we all meet our end. Some of these cemeteries, however, boast more ghost stories than others.
*** A bronze monument in an Iowa City cemetery is said to bring death to anyone who touches it. (Black Angel of Oakland Cemetery) *** Could an old burial ground be the most haunted place in Savannah, Georgia? (Colonial Park Cemetery) *** A final resting place is supposed to be exactly that – final. But the resting places of the Chase family were anything but final… or restful. (Moving Coffins of the Chase Family) *** Is Satan’s staircase located in a quiet, small-town Kansas cemetery? (The Hellmouth of Stull Cemetery) *** A desolate burial ground outside of downtown Chicago is said to be one of the most haunted places in the country. (Bachelor’s Grove) *** We’ll unearth the eerie history of Hart Island, a massive cemetery off the coast of New York City where over one million souls are entombed in unmarked graves. (The Dead of Hart Island) *** Jonathan Reed couldn’t bear to be separated from his wife … so he moved into her tomb. (The Mausoleum of Mary Reed) *** In a quiet Virginia cemetery is a peculiar tomb that has mystified visitors for nearly two hundred years. (Grave of the Female Stranger) *** From playgrounds to public parks, pedestrians stroll over old burial grounds daily … unaware of what lies beneath. (Forgotten Graveyards) *** Cemeteries have always been a source of fear. We have scoured the map to collect some of the most haunted graveyards ever. (The Most Haunted Graveyards Ever) *** They say her spirit dances past the cemetery at night, dressed entirely in white. We’ll look at the eerie tale of Chicago’s most famous ghost. (Resurrection Mary)
