Bailey Cemetery in the Snow


Last week I took Mukow on a walk and we decided (yes, this was a collective decision) to explore a cemetery that is right around the corner from us. We cut through the parking lot of the nearby school and up the hill to the cemetery. I couldn’t find much information about it online outside of it supposedly having a Colonial history and many unmarked and neglected graves. One site I looked at said there were 189 interments there, but there is nowhere near 189 graves there now (and I can’t even imagine 189 burial plots fitting into this tiny space), so… I’m not sure what’s up with that.

It’a also supposedly haunted, which I guess shouldn’t come as a surprise. I hadn’t looked up any haunting info before we went, but we did have a somewhat odd experience. We went in the front gate and walked straight up the middle and into the back right corner. I took some photos and Mukow sniffed around and then I attempted to take her back down the center so we could see some more… but she downright refused. She would sit down with all of her weight and wouldn’t let me pull her. So I loosened up and let her lead us, and she would very quickly take us back to the far right corner. This went on 3 or 4 times before I gave up and lead her across the back fence and into the far left corner, and she was fine with that, but looked nervously at that middle path. She allowed us to walk down the left fence and out of the cemetery. After I got home and looked up some information, it seems like the grave with the most paranormal activity is Charles Howard’s, right around the middle of the cemetery. Eep. I can’t help but think that Mukow sensed something there and didn’t want to walk by it again.
