This Haunted Cemetery In Nebraska Is Not For the Faint of Heart
There are cemeteries all across Nebraska that are said to be haunted, and this one in Omaha is one of the most fascinating. Prospect Hill Cemetery holds some of the city’s most notable early residents… and today it’s said that some of them still roam the grounds.
The cemetery is located at 3202 Parker Street, Omaha, NE 68111.
Today there are self-guided walking tour pamphlets of Prospect Hill Cemetery available from the cemetery’s website or from the sexton, whose home is at the gates of the cemetery. The Legacy Arboretum on the grounds is a beautiful collection of native trees, many of which date back to Omaha’s early days.
Whether or not you believe in ghosts, this historic cemetery is a must-visit for anyone interested in Omaha’s history. Along with early Omahans, there are many veterans interred here, including some who fought in the war of 1812 and some Buffalo Soldiers. Many Native Americans and early African American Omaha residents also rest here.
