Some might find cemeteries to be a bit on the scary side, but others find the charm and history alluring. I’ve got to say, there’s something hauntingly beautiful about Southern cemeteries in particular. The sight of the Spanish moss-draped oaks shading the tombstones makes for such a beautiful scene. Cemeteries hold keys to the past, and the reported hauntings that have happened over the years make them all the more fascinating. We’ve all heard legends about ghosts lurking in graveyards, but it can feel like they’re the stuff of children’s stories. Next time you find yourself wondering “Are there haunted cemeteries near me?” the answer is a firm yes, if you’re near the Georgia-Florida border. It’s there that you’ll find Bosque Bello Cemetery, noted as one of the most haunted cemeteries in Florida. It dates all the way back to the late 1700s, so it’s no surprise that it’s said to be haunted. It’s got an unrivaled beauty to it that makes it a surprisingly lovely spot for a stroll.
