A list of 10 "Spookiest cemeteries in the
published at foxnews.com may have three from Louisiana
at the top -- that's to be expected -- but also includes three from the Carolinas:
St. Louis Cemetery
No. 1, New Orleans. This famous graveyard was established in 1789 and is on the northern end of the city's
ever-popular French Quarter. Visit on your own or on a guided tour. Because the
land is so close to sea level, people are buried in above-ground tombs.
Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, also in New Orleans. It's small but also packed with
American Cemetery, This is another oldie and it
shows up in scenes from "Steel Magnolias." Natchitoches,
4. Woodpecker Hill, Colorado Springs, Co. Citizens were buried in the town's Greenwood Cemetery, Woodpecker Hill, on a bluff above it, is where convicts were laid to rest.
The next four are notable for holding the remains of many Civil War soldiers.
Elmwood Cemetery and Gardens, Columbia (shown in the photo at the top of
Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond
Laurel Hill Cemetery,
Woodland Cemetery, . Bethel,
Bellevue Cemetery, Wilmington.
It's spooky enough to be a site location for the modern-gothic TV series "Sleepy
Hollow," which is filmed in the area.
10. St. James Parish Cemetery,
Wilmington. Founded in 1729, with many old headstones
sheathed in moss, it looks the part.
