These 10 Haunted Cemeteries In Kentucky Are Not For The Faint Of Heart

Some see graveyards as a serene place of quiet and peace and go there to study, relax and visit their dead. Others don’t necessarily agree with that concept and see cemeteries as a haven for paranormal activity. It could be said that a final resting place may not always be a place of rest, especially if you’ve visited during odd hours. It isn’t unusual to hear tales of strange lights, bumps, and chatter in the night at some supposedly haunted cemeteries in Kentucky. Many a nonbeliever will explain away the possibilities with scientific or illogical explanations. However, not everyone is a skeptic… and not everything can be explained away.

There are some unnerving rumors about these 10 haunted cemeteries in Kentucky:

3. Lexington Cemetery, Lexington.

This cemetery was created at 833 W Main Street back in 1849. It has been around a long time and some spirits grow weary of resting.

2. Grandview Cemetery, Custer.

This place of rest has also been deemed Kasey’s Cemetery and the “Gates of Hell.” It holds the graves of people from the 1700s and the 1800s. It is said an enormous orb appeared over the iron and stone gate, hovered there then disappeared. The gate has been misshapen since the event, but screams and shadowy figures are often reported there.

1. Cave Hill Cemetery, Louisville.

This cemetery was built in 1848, during the Victorian era as a garden/park style cemetery. There are strange lights, mists, laughter, screams, talking, and other unexplained events that occur within its gates.

The final resting place can be seen as peaceful, or creepy, depending on the time of day and location. These supposedly haunted cemeteries in Kentucky all have a unique environment, architecture or history that add to their allure.
