This cemetery is said to be haunted by its Black Angel statue and a young girl set on a pedestal. Strange lights have been reported here and the Angel has been seen walking around as a glowing shape. It is said that the little girl statue will pick out one member of a group of cemetery visitors and stare at that person until they leave the premises. It has also been reported that the temperature changes in relation to the girl statue. The closer you get to it, the warmer you feel. If you back away, the colder it gets.

  • In early 90

    In the early 90s a group of us came to see it I don't know when they started closing the cemetery but we was there and it was the witching hour of between 12 am and 1am .I not going to name the name but two of us kiss in on the lips and we'll those two are still alive but maybe they are cursed because all lot of people that was around them have die form the small town of wellman Iowa. Since the event maybe it is curse but over they years I have watch people from that town die car crash or shot I not going into who but I have lost count and I speaking of over 20+ all from the small town with in a few years. I was just look at it in the photos and I know we did not break in we just drove our car in and was hanging out at it was 12 to 1 am but I glad to see that nobody has damaged it.

  • Pictures

    Back in 2013/2014 my mom, sister, 2 nephews (she had only had 2 at the time), my baby niece, and I had gone to see the black angel and I was taking pictures. I looked back at the pictures after words and saw a spirit in one of the pictures and a spirit also closed the van door on me and I was ready to leave once that happened. haven't been back since but want to go back so bad

  • Black Angel of Oakland Cemetery.

    I have met this angel in person as a child. I haven't ever seen anything unusual about her. I touched her as well. But rest assure the other stories kept me up or hiding under the blankets at night! This cemetery was my playground as strange as it may be. There were no parks close enough to play in.
