It's a beautiful iconic old cemetery, and if you visit remember bring your camera because you're going to want to take some pictures. According to the legend the back right corner of the cemetery is supposedly haunted by the spirt of an unknown woman who has been seen on more than one occasion walking along the pathways. When she spots you usually she dissipates into nothing.

Beautiful old cemetery with lots of ghost stories attached. Of course, you don't need to be a paranormal investigator to appreciate the graveyard. Absolutely bring along a camera... this is a place you're going to want to photograph.

This gorgeous old cemetery is an incredible find with beautiful old headstones from the 19th century and huge iron gates at the entrance. A definite place to visit for the historian or ghost hunter alike!
