There is a farm
down the road from the cemetery, and in the 1840s a farmer's son
accidentally hung himself in the hayloft and was the first
person buried on a nearby hill which later became the Tabernacle
Cemetery. The farmer later painted the boy's name on the
side of the barn.
- There is a
privately-owned farm across the road from the cemetery, but the barn
not even date back to the 1840s, and, contrary to the
rumors, nobody ever died in this barn. Warning:
People who trespass on this property and/or vandalize the
barn will be arrested!
- We have
learned that there was, indeed, a barn where a boy
accidentally hung himself, but it was not the barn
adjacent to the cemetery. To protect the privacy
of the land owners, we will not disclose the location of the
barn where this actually did take place.

headlights in the northwestern corner of the cemetery will

the cemetery and found the tree and the fence but experienced
nothing out of the ordinary.
The tree where the
apparition has allegedly been spotted.
