Nearby Kentucky Cemetery Is Known as the ‘Gates of Hell’
As we approach Halloween--conveniently falling on a weekend, once again--you might be looking for an extra-creepy activity to celebrate (if that's the appropriate word) the season.
Well, Elizabethtown is not that far away and it has some awesome opportunities for you to sink your teeth into the scariest holiday of them all. For starters, there's a creepy old haunted girls' school that will get you in the mood, perhaps, to tackle a cemetery known as the "Gates of Hell."
Sounds inviting, doesn't it?
I belong to a Facebook group called the Haunted History of Kentucky and this is a recent topic of conversation. And although you see a lot of creepy dolls in that image, one contributor to the group asks that you not leave anything there that you take in with you--as a way of maintaining the grounds. It is, after all, a family cemetery.
And its official name is Kasey Cemetery. So why the demonic nickname? Well, it's believed satanic rituals have been conducted there. But why tempt fate at night in an eerie location like a cemetery? Especially one that's been known to be this site of unexplained occurrences. In other words, it doesn't sound like Kasey Cemetery needs any help. Oh and then there's this...the cemetery's Facebook page warns potential visitors to prepare for the inability to use electronics since it's so far out in the country. How comforting.
Check out this homemade mini-documentary from The Paranormal Couple who recorded some eerie sounds during their visit:
You know, maybe Halloween ISN'T the best time to visit a place like this. Maybe there's too much energy around this particular time of the year. Then again, otherworldly forces might not even recognize or CARE about October 31st. Maybe that's just us.
Happy Halloween and safe travels.
