The Pauper's Cemetery

Location:  Pleasant Prairie, Kenosha County, Wisconsin


  • The correct name is "Kenosha County Cemetery."

  • Several ghost web sites incorrectly list the town as Kenosha.


The Reputed Phenomena:  

At night you can hear the moans and sighs of the unknown "John Does" and "Jane Does" who are buried here with nobody to mourn their passing.


The Investigation:  
  • The cemetery is owned and maintained by the county of Kenosha.
  • Indigent and unknown persons were buried there between 1924 and 1972.
  • Caution is advised when walking in the cemetery as the ground is settling because several of the wooden coffins have rotted and collapsed.
  • We did note the sound of some type of vehicle in the distance that could easily be mistaken for "moaning."
