A Second Visit to Laurel Hill Cemetery


My ghost hunting friends and I visit lots of cemeteries. We should feel quite a home in one when we eventually do pass away, but for now we enjoy visiting the older cemeteries because of the historically prominent people buried there, the different types of tombstones that were popular in the past
                              and of course the chance to spot a spirit or two.
We packed a lunch, covered ourselves in sunscreen and my husband Dan (“The Ghost Hunters Conveyor”) dropped us off at the entrance of Laurel Hill. I need to make up a special tee-shirt for him.
                                              Dan is the cutie pie on the right
We visited some of the more famous people,one that lived during the American Indian War
                         and some who were able to communicate with spirits.
The Laurel Hill Cemetery offers many events and if you click on to their event page, you find something that will interest you.

The office staff is friendly, very friendly and helpful, very helpful. Alexis Jeffcoat was in the office when we returned from our walk and showed us a coffin that was used for viewing the body before burial. This was before embalming was widespread.


They also have a small museum across from the office and you can take a tour and learn some interesting facts.
 Sometimes…you can learn a lot from people…even when they are dead. So do yourself a big favor and go visit Laurel Hill while you're still!


  1. Great article Marie, I love visiting cemeteries and ancient churches too. You never know what you'll find :)

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog site. I love to walk through the cemeteries and read the inscriptions on the tombstones and try to picture what that person was like. Are there similar old and interesting cemeteries near you?

  2. I find old cemeteries interesting also and always wonder how the people buried in them lived. Very interesting blog post. Thanks, Marie!

    1. Thank you Victoria. I think this is why I like to visit cemeteries. Hope to see you soon:)
