suburb graveyard

Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery

Chicago is home to the spookiest cemetery in the United States, and that’s saying a lot. Located in the Midlothian suburb, this abandoned graveyard will chill you to the bone just walking through its gates. First used as a burial ground in 1844, the last recorded burial there was in 1989. Since then, it has been used for Satanic rituals and various other creepy stuff. Visitors talk about all kinds of scary phenomena there, including light-producing ectoplasmic orbs, mysterious hooded figures and, most bizarrely, an entire phantom farmhouse that disappears if people get too close to it.
