These 5 Haunted Cemeteries In Washington Are Not For the Faint of Heart
You’ve heard of haunted houses, haunted hotels and even
haunted restaurants in Washington… but a haunted cemetery? That may seem like a stretch, even though that IS where we go to bury our dead.
There are a few spooky cemeteries in Washington that are rumored to be haunted. If you go investigate, make sure you learn the hours and rules beforehand so you don’t anger the living while attempting to contact the dead.
1. Maltby Cemetery
We'll start with what is possibly our scariest cemetery story. Maltby's cemetery has had reports of apparitions of a ghostly woman and children, but that's far from the most terrifying thing to happen here.
There were once 13 steps starting at ground level descending into the ground leading to the back entrance of the tomb of a wealthy family. Supposedly teens would dare each other to go down the stairs, touch the door to the tomb, and come back… but when the unlucky person turned around after completing the dare, he or she would get a terrifying glimpse into hell. Some people were so traumatized they were left unable to speak. The steps have been covered up and No Trespassing signs cover the cemetery to discourage people from trying to find them.
2. Black Diamond Cemetery
With graves dating back to the 1800s, it's no wonder than the Black Diamond Cemetery is a hot spot for paranormal activity. Some people swear they hear the whistling of old coal miners, while others claim they've seen a ghostly white horse. It's also common to feel as if you're being watched as you walk through the cemetery.
3. Bayview Cemetery, Bellingham
This cemetery is home to a haunted monument called Angel Eyes that is said to house a spirit that roams the cemetery. As if that isn't creepy enough, there's also the Death Bed, a monument said to expedite the death of anyone who lies down on it.
4. Civil War Cemetery, Seattle
Seattle has a small civil war cemetery on Capitol Hill next to the Lake View Cemetery. If you go at the right time, you just might see an apparition of a man in a Civil War uniform.
5. Carnation Cemetery
Many people who visit this cemetery feel as if something is "off." Some hear strange footsteps when there's no one around, and some people hear whispering even when they're alone. There's even an apparition here, a ghostly "white lady" who disappears when you get close to her.
Cemeteries are peaceful places, so it’s best not to go to them just to go ghost hunting. If you’re looking for some possible paranormal activity, check out our list of
