It seemed as if everyone we met, long time residents and new comers, knew a lot of the history of this cemetary. What surprised me was that it was completely open with no gates anywhere.

We visited the cemetery on a ghost tour and the story is pretty interesting about the events that took place in this cemetery. It is an old cemetery and has a creepy vibe.
