Evans City Cemetery.

Night of the Living Dead Cemetery

As we were cruising down the road, we happened upon the cemetery where the original Night of the Living Dead was filmed. It's located on a winding road just in Evans City. Atop the hill the cemetery sits where it was founded in 1891. As you wind through the gravel roads between graves you can't help but get an eerie feeling that the rich history and characters could really be "coming to get you Barbara."

Blair grave.

Night of the Living Dead Cemetery

In the movie, Barbara and Johnny are actually visiting the grave to the right of the "Blair" stone. It is marked "Cole." The "Nicholas Kramer" stone which Barbara clings to is the tall, white one off to the left. It has other names on it as well.

Blair headstone.

Night of the Living Dead Cemetery

Headstone with the name "Blair" is easy to find and that will line you up with a pretty iconic shot.

Nicholas Kramer grave.

Night of the Living Dead Cemetery

The name on the most famous stone (the one at which Barbara pauses) is "Nicholas Kramer." It's located on the right about 300 feet (after you pass the chapel on the left). If you get to first gravel "road" on right, you're just a bit too far. GPS coordinates 40 degrees, 45.695 minutes west 80 degrees, 3.867 minutes.
