  • Girlfriend came back with scratches on back

    A while back a group of friends went out before the gate was added to the entrance (around 2005). The cemetery was not the highlight but the trail in the wooded area. We ended up getting separated and my girlfriend ended up up with very distinct scratches that looked like claw marks on her back (I would know it wasn't there beforehand) and no memory of when we got separated or where she had been when we met back up.

  • weird

    My friends bf went there with this other guy and he got pushed off the stairs and landed on his right side. His hand is all wounded and he said that it felt like he got pushed and then like someone stopped him and dropped him. He also had to go back out to get his wallet.

  • The Iowa KKK??

    I assure you the that an "Iowa KKK" does NOT meet there. It's perfectly safe out there. It's incredibly unlikely that you'd stumble across a meeting of that nature in Iowa. I'm not saying there aren't Iowans that have sentiments & opinions aligned with that of the KKK because I'm sure there are some but as for the meetings, white hoods, etc, it's just not something you'll see here. This isn't the deep south—far from it.

  • Scariest part isn't the cemetery

    It's walking through a trail in the woods. Rumor has it, Iowa KKK members meet at a circle opening at the end of the trail. We found the circle and decided if the rumor were true, it'd be best not to stick around. As for the cemetery, nothing paranormal occurred. You can convince yourself any cemetery is scary if you want but I experienced nothing.
