Are Cemeteries Haunted?

It’s fairly common for ghost hunting groups to spend a lot of time in cemeteries. People who ghost hunt usually like spooky old things and they are also great places to research history and individuals. Birth and death dates can be helpful, and if you know what you are looking for, you can often find them on headstones. People also tend to assume that cemeteries are automatically haunted.

In my opinion, this is usually not the case, though there are exceptions to the rule. Ghosts tend to hang out in places that they had a strong connection to while they were alive. Homes, work buildings, hospitals etc. seem to be the places that attract ghosts the most. While it’s possible for a ghost to be hanging around, I don’t see it as a very likely scenario most of the time.

Do you think cemeteries are haunted?


  1. If anyplace is haunted, I'd think it would be a cemetery.

  2. They are certainly creepy - have you ever hung out in one at night?

  3. I think an OCCASIONAL haunting can take place in a cemetery but mostly not. I tend to take your view, Alyson about homes and such beomg a better candidate.

    Though, there are somewhat nonhuman things that hang out sometimes. I mean, if you were an evil thing that wanted to be somewhere where a lot of open, curious people would be, it would be the perfect place.
