8 Disturbing Cemeteries In Delaware That Will Give You Goosebumps

Delaware was one of the first states to be colonized when Europeans began to settle in America, and the history of the First State is one of the most fascinating histories in the nation. Lewes survived bombardment multiple times, Wilmington was a threatened port city, and Dover was a critical town during the American Revolution and Civil War. Some incredible historic figures have called Delaware home, and Delaware’s graveyards reflect the long history of life and death in our state. They’re full of history, old gravestones, and probably some ghosts. Check out these creepy photographs that local Delaware photographers have taken at the state’s creepiest Delaware cemeteries.

I love a good ghost story! Here are some of the most fascinating and terrifying Delaware ghost stories, if you’re looking to get creeped out.
