Alma - Alma Cemetery

The Alma Cemetery is haunted for two reasons. One is the people who are buried there and refuse to leave.

Some pictures have been taken during the night up there. (It's the best time.) The pictures were unbelievable, there were orbs and mist figures in the pictures. Reason two is the legend of the Devil's Chair. The story is that in the 1800s a real old mean farmer owned the land that is now the cemetery. About that same time Alma was being built. Towns officials had been trying to get him to sell his land so they could use it for the new town's cemetery. But he kept refusing to sell it. One day while at his well getting water someone came up from behind him and pushed him into the well. Than about a week later the town officials come out to the farm to try and to get him to sell again. And one of them noticed a smell from the well. The sheriff said it was nothing and ordered for the well to be boarded and locked and that no one is suppose to talk about. So the farmers land became the town's cemetery. Than in the 1980s some teens decided to go out there and see if they can see the ghost of the old man. One of the teens dared another to sit on top of the closed well. The teen did as he was dared, but suddenly the group heard a sound behind them and turned to see what it was and there was nothing there. So when they turned around to see if there friend was still sitting there. But he wasn't. Thinking that it was a joke he was playing they left and figured they'd see him tomorrow. But the teen was never seen again. Over the years there have been other stories of people sitting on the Devil's Chair and never being seen again. Some people say that it's the farmer reaching through the now old rotted broken boards and getting revenge on the town that took his land away from him. People call it the Devil's Chair because the man was evil when he was alive and is still evil after death.

I have been here. I was with two of my friends and I was the one going to sit on the well. I told my friends that no matter what DON'T TURN AROUND!!! Well, just as I was about to sit. They both started to turn because they heard something behind them. I jumped up and yelled at them for turning around. It was the weirdest thing.

This was an excellent place to visit. My friends and I had some pretty interesting personal experiences. There were about six of us, so two at a time we would go up there and sit on the well while the other four turned their backs. We experienced some of our friends getting pulled back and towards the very end of our time there we had heard some loud thuds on the ground next to us. We also noticed that at some points in our investigation there was no wind by the well, but there was in the rest of the cemetary. Also, our camera's, just fully charged, kept dying and turning off while we were up next to the well.
