Hello there,

I found your website, and had to share my story of when I had gone to Bachelors grove about 5-6 yrs ago. My friend and I had gone to this cemetery a couple of times, because of what we had heard about the history and it being haunted. The couple of times that we went, I had one of those "eery" feelings. Almost like, I didn't belong there. But I stuck it out. We wandered around, looked, NEVER took pictures though (I just wasn't comfortable with it.)

But the last time I had visited Bachelors Grove will definitely be my last, and he is why. My friend and I parked in the parking lot across the street one night, and proceeded to go across the street to the path, then to the cemetery. This time, she had her camera. Just walking onto the actual path gave me the chills. I got that same "eery" feeling I always got. This time, we started walking on the path. I kept turning around, because it felt like someone/something was watching or following us.. it was that "feeling" I got. We were about 30 feet from the beginning of the path, when I swear on everything, I seen 2 figures to the side of the path up ahead. They were very tall... at least 12 feet tall. And they looked like monks almost. I just remember 2 tall ass 'things' with it looked like they had hoods on.. and that's all I saw.. and I turned around and ran as fast as I could back to the car. As soon as my friend got in, I just told her to drive, and didn't say anything yet til we left.

I explained to her what I saw, and she tried to reassure me "oh it was probably trees in the wind, or an animal, or shadows, etc. etc" She told me that we would go back the next day during daylight to see what it was. Next day comes.. we go to the path again.. walk about 20-30 ft and stop to observe. There was NOTHING even CLOSE to the image I saw that day. Sure there were trees, but not the height/width/stature of the things I saw. And nothing IN those trees resembled a "hood" or something to give the effect of a long robe. Whatever I had seen the night before, was enough to tell me to stay away. I'm not sure what exactly it was, or if other people have seen this, but it scared the shit out of me. I just wanted to share with you my experience at Bachelors Grove, and I will probably never go there again lol.

I wanted to know if you, or anyone you have talked to about paranormal expeiences have seen anything like this? Or something similiar? I would be really interested to find out what other people may have seen, or if these "hooded figures" have some kind of history. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely yours,

Cathy Wagner
