9. Dean Hill Cemetery, Fitchburg

Dean Hill Road Cemetery in Fitchburg is more commonly known as “The Rev” due to the large number of Revolutionary War soldiers buried there. Reports of figures with glowing eyes appearing between midnight and 3 a.m. abound, and local legends tell of strange sexual rituals that were performed at the cemetery in the 1960s. The corpse of a burned body was also supposedly found in the road just outside the graveyard. (304 Caswell Road, Fitchburg)
