The Mars Hill Church and Cemetery in Bloomfield features a log cabin style church that is one of its kind still in use in the United States. It is also the largest log building in all of Iowa. In the past, the building was once an active stop on the Underground Railroad and the cemetery marks the final resting place of at least one veteran from every single American war. The location has seen many ritual masses that are held in the middle of the night, with pentagrams and candles left behind as evidence. The spirits that linger here are believed to be that of slaves.

    I visited Mars Hill on Jan 1, 2018. It was cold and sunny, middle of the day, and I was just out exploring. Pulled into the driveway and turned off my vehicle. Went to open the car door and the radio came on. Thinking maybe it was a battery issue or something, I decided to restart the vehicle and leave it running but turned the radio off. I am an avid cemetery walker. I have never been afraid to explore and look around. When I got out and took a few steps toward the church, I was hit with an immediate sense of uneasiness. I felt like I was being watched and that I was not alone and that whomever or whatever was with me definitely did not want me there. I took a few deep breaths and walked closer to the church. I snapped a few pictures and then started toward the cemetery, determined not to be spooked away. As I approached the cemetery, I suddenly had a pounding headache, nausea, and felt very dizzy. That was enough for me. I took one photo of the cemetery and went back to my vehicle. When I opened the door to get in, I noticed the radio was playing even though I had turned it off. It took a good 2 or 3 hours and a very thorough smudge to rid myself of the headache and nausea. I have not been back since then but am curious to see what response, if any, I would have this time around. Most definitely the most uneasy feeling I have ever had in a cemetery.
