If you are looking for proof of the supernatural, The Central Masonic Cemetery in Central City, Colorado is the place to go. Even though the cemetery is a well-established hotspot these days, people have been reporting sightings of the supernatural since 1887.
Like at almost every popular haunted sight, people claim to have seen orbs of light in pictures that they took at night time at the Central Masonic Cemetery. Another phenomenon that occurs is The Lady in Black: she appears twice a year to place flowers on John Edward Cameron’s grave. It was later discovered that John Edward Cameron had moved to Central City in 1872 with his family, he died fifteen years later of an illness at age twenty-eight. John was never married, but the town gossip was that he had been seeing an unknown woman.
The Central City Masonic Cemetery was established in the early 1860’s.
The third and possibly the most chilling abnormality that happens is the little boy who haunts the cemetery. There have been many sightings of this young boy, who is said to trail behind the visitors, following them wherever they go; and when they try to reach out and communicate with the boy, he runs and hides, sometimes just disappearing into thin air.
So, if you are in the mood to see abnormal orbs of light, a sad spirit lady in black laying flowers on her possible past lovers grave, or just to be stalked by the ghost of a little boy, The Central Masonic Cemetery in Central City Colorado is the place for you.
