Magnolia Cemetary

1202 Virginia Street, Mobile, Alabama 36604 USA

Add to Trip

“Haunted by a dog!”

Spreading out beneath a canopy of ancient oaks in Mobile, Alabama is a magnificent city of the dead.  Established by a municipal ordinance in 1836 outside the city limits on thirty-six acres of land, this peaceful place of rest now lies in the heart of historic Mobile, just blocks from downtown.  Today, Magnolia Cemetery covers over 120 acres, and contains some 80,000 grave sites. 


Here's a firsthand account of an encounter with a mysterious ghost dog: 

"There was a dog, a chow (black or chocolate brown), that was suddenly there some 10ft away from us. We didn't think anything of the dog really until it showed us its teeth. At that point we thought maybe we should just turn around and slowly walk away. And we did. and the dog followed. 

The entire way back to the truck this dog was growling, gnashing its teeth (no exaggeration here), circling us... and very very close, maybe a foot and a half away from us the whole time. 

As we were leaving we looked back and saw the dog sitting on the grass at the edge of the road just watching us. 

As we drove off we looked back... and the dog was gone."

Perhaps he's guarding his master's tomb from beyond his own grave?

True, it's in a rough part of town. We have never had any issues with the area. The cemetery is beautiful. You can definitely feel a certain energy throughout.

It's a large cemetery as well as a National one. It's gated and didn't want nor had the time to get out and walk around. Also, not in the best part of town.

We arrived to late to walk the grounds but the drive around the area reminded me of the garden district in New Orleans.
