Of all of the cemeteries in America, one of them should claim this title, and this one seems worthy. Vanishing cars, spook lights, a two-headed man!

Overturned tombstone.

Bachelor's Grove Cemetery

This abandoned graveyard has many ghostly tales associated with it. It does have an eerie presence and it is sad to see how many graves have been vandalized and desecrated. The lake brings a lot of mosquitoes to the area, so don't forget the bug spray. Also, avoid the area at night unless you want to get arrested. I drove by at night, initially, and two police cars were waiting at the nearby parking area.

Grave of Infant Daughter.

Most Haunted U.S. Cemetery?

Not bad. I can see why it's spooky at night. Evidence of some vandalism, but still pretty cool to see. Do not go there alone!
