Old Commons Burial Ground Is One Of Rhode Island’s Spookiest Cemeteries

If you’ve lived in Rhode Island for awhile, you’ve probably heard the sinister tale of Mercy Brown, our most famous vampire (who wasn’t actually a vampire at all). She and her family are buried at the Chestnut Hill Cemetery in Exeter, and the cemetery itself is pretty unsettling simply because of what occurred there.

But Chestnut Hill Cemetery isn’t the only haunting cemetery in Rhody. Check out the Old Commons Burial Ground if you really want to be spooked.

There doesn’t seem to be much paranormal activity reported here. Still, plenty of people have experienced strange chills walking through the cemetery. Considering all the unique characters that have been buried here, we wouldn’t be surprised if some stuck around.
