Chute Cemetery | Windham, Maine


Also known as Chute Road Cemetery, it’s said to be haunted by the ghosts of two young girls who died nearby. No one seems sure of the exact story but it’s said that they possibly fell into a defunct well or mine shaft. They are supposed to have two tombstones in the cemetery but we didn’t see them, strangely enough — nor did we see their spirits who have been spotted playing on the road nearby.

There’s all kinds of construction taking place surrounding the cemetery, so we approached it from the main road (Chute Rd), but supposedly there’s a smaller dirt road that leads right to it. It looks so odd sitting back from the road, surrounded by dirt piles and partially constructed homes. It’s a truly tiny cemetery, with less than 20 marked graves in the fenced off area (but possibly more, marked or unmarked, in the land surrounding it). It’s a fascinating place.

Little cemetery, all by its lonesome…
