Voted : Boothill Cemetery ~ Tombstone, Arizona
^ I havent been there yet, but would love to go.
The Boothill Cemetery in Tombstone, AZ is supposed to be haunted. Actually there are several old places in Tombstone that have been known for unexplained activity.
The cemetery near where I grew up was pretty creepy. The older section was in a lightly wooded section with old oak and pine trees. Some of the small underground tombs were so old and caved in that you probably could have gotten to the body by just moving a few bricks aside. There was one old grave we noticed that had grass growing on it higher than the grass nearby. We never could figure out a reason for it. Odd.
Let me tell you about my scary cemetary story. I went to Pittsburgh to visit my boyfriend's home. While there, one evening, he drove me to see an old cemetary. While there, I saw the image of a much older cemetary "floating" above the one that was there. He was looking in the glove compartment at the time and when he looked up, the image was gone.
Quaker Cemetery ~ Worcester, Massachusetts
Called Spider Gates because it has eight gates, this cemetery is said to be very dangerous. Starting at the first gate it is said that one will hear whispers and notice leaves moving around when the wind is calm. As one gets closer to the eighth gate, it is said they will feel the sensation of someone brushing against them. Others have reported seeing people walking aimlessly around graves. As one gets closer to the eight gate, the sensations and images become so strong that most people faint. No one has ever made it to the eight gate. It is said that some have suffered massive heart attacks and died because they were over come with fear.
^There's probably a false bottom in front of the eighth gate or something. Just so they can perpetuate the legend and continue stealing cemetery jobs from REAL Americans.

Chestnut Hill Cemetery in Exeter Rhode Island.
This cemetery boasts the ghost of Marcy Brown, a poor young girl who died in 1892. Supposedly, she visited her father every night after her death, pleading with him for food. The father grew to believe his daughter had become a vampire, and convinced the local officials to exhume her body and drain it of remaining blood and remove her organs. This violating act may just be the reason Marcy Brown haunts this cemetery day and night.
