Mt Hope Cemetery - Real Haunt in Madrid IA
- Mt Hope Cemetery
- Madrid, IA
This cemetery is rumored to be haunted by a ghostly child named Sara. She is buried near the back of the cemetery with four other children from her family. She is said to follow people around and ask for someone named Ree. She has also reportedly touched people and tugged at their clothing if her queries are not answered.
It's not haunted, it's an elk farm.
I live in Madrid and have heard all the stories, usually they consist of a girl named Sara screaming or yelling. I just smile and listen and then I tell them that the screaming they are hearing is elk rutting season and the bull elk are bugling (sounds like screaming from a distance). The elk farm is right across the field from cemetery maybe an eighth mile or so. The look on peoples faces when they hear it is priceless, then they realize it's just elk and feel stupid they drove all this way to listen to horny bull elk. lol
To the site administrators... Please take this haunt down, It's wasting peoples time and the Police have and will arrest them if caught in there after hours. Posted 10/30/17
