The most haunted place in MN is this cemetery 2 hours from St. Cloud
With less than a week away from Halloween, the folks of Treetopia have taken to the all-knowing World Wide Web to determine the most haunted states and the most haunted city and location in each state. From haunted houses to abandoned hospitals, deserted theaters to old cemeteries, Treetopia has found the location of each state’s most recorded ghost sightings for a truly supernatural experience.
Minnesota is neither the creepiest nor the least frightening on the list, ranking 22nd with 1,089 recorded ghost sightings in total. The title of the most haunted state went to Texas with 7,315 recorded ghost sightings (strange things are happening in El Paso, apparently) and the least haunted Delaware with only 128 recorded ghost sightings.
Of the 1,089 ghost sightings recorded in Minnesota, 29 of them occurred in Mankato and most of them at Calvary Cemetery. For this reason, Mankato has been named the most haunted city in Minnesota and the most haunted location in Minnesota Calvary Cemetery by Treetopia.
MinnesotaHauntedHouses.com reports that there are several stories about an evil doctor who shows himself in Calvary Cemetery as a phantom demon. There are also other stories about Hell Road, a nearby path where animal sacrifices were said to have been performed. However, when the Ghostbusters checked out the locations, they reported that no such evil behavior really happens and the ghosts that live there just want to be left alone. Further confirming its notoriety, OnlyInYourState.com also lists Calvary Cemetery as its most disturbing cemetery in Minnesota, claiming
Calvary is an old cemetery, which is probably why it’s a little spooky. Many of its monuments are imposing and ornate, giving off an almost inaccessible ambience. Add to that the many trees that overlook everything, and it’s no wonder this cemetery is a bit disturbing.
