The Haunted Cemetery In San Francisco That Will Send Chills Down Your Spine

In 1900, cemeteries were banned in San Francisco and by 1937 many were removed. One of the last two remaining cemeteries is purportedly haunted. Founded in 1776, the Mission Dolores cemetery, which is officially known as the San Francisco de Asís cemetery, is the oldest cemetery in San Francisco. The cemetery originally ran all the way to what is now Church Street, but today it is just a tiny burial ground. This cemetery is a final resting place for some of the city’s founders and thousands of Native Americans. Today, this cemetery is filled with lots of history—some of it quite dark.

The Mission Dolores cemetery is located at: 3321 16th Street, San Francisco, 94114 You can find out more about this cemetery from the Mission Dolores Cemetery Site.
