Haunted America Tours... Ghost ,Ghost and More Ghosts!


 

HAUNTED CEMETERY GHOSTMany places have been found where ancient people buried their dead. Such a place could be an organised necropolis or it could simply be an area with highly symbolic elements (like the Tomb of Giants in Sardinia). The Egyptian pyramids were tombs.

Stories of the World's Most Haunted Cemeteries often carry the same general theme. Ghost, ghosts and more ghosts. Many places have been found where ancient people buried their dead. Such a place could be an organised necropolis or it could simply be an area with highly symbolic elements (like the Tomb of Giants in Sardinia). The Egyptian pyramids were tombs. Infact the very dead or beneath our feet litterally.

Haunted may refer to: An area frequented by a ghost or ghosts
Haunted house, a building believed to be a center for supernatural occurrences.
Haunting, a believed recurring presence of a ghost, demon, or similar supernatural being at a specific place.

A new belief amongs ghost hunters is that the long lost dead often lead archeologist to their final resting places. such is the discovery of King tut, and the lost tombs of the Pharohs And their mummified queens.

A cemetery is a place in which dead bodies and cremated remains are buried. The term cemetery (from Greek sleeping place) implies that the land is specifically designated as a burying ground. Cemeteries in the Western world are the place where the final ceremonies of death are observed.

Please also see: LIST OF CEMETERIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

These ceremonies or rites differ according to cultural practice and religious belief. Cemeteries are distinguished from other burial grounds by their location; they are usually not adjoined to a place of worship. A graveyard, on the other hand, is located in a churchyard (Scots language or Northern English language: kirkyaird), although a churchyard can also be any patch of land on church grounds.

From about the 7th century, European burial was under the control of the church and on consecrated church ground. Practices varied, but in continental Europe, bodies were usually buried in a mass grave until they had decomposed. The bones were then exhumed and stored in ossuaries, either along the arcaded bounding walls of the cemetery, or within the church under floor slabs and behind walls.

Burying corpses in land enclosed within the city walls had a negative impact on public health. As a consequence, some cemeteries were moved away from heavily populated areas. As an example, in the late 18th century, skeletons exhumed from major Paris cemeteries were moved into ossuaries in the Catacombs, and burials were prohibited in inner-city locations.

Cemetery company and municipally-owned cemeteries, independent from churches and their churchyards, date largely from the early 19th century, certainly in their landscaped or garden cemetery form, although the cemetery reform movement began c. 1740.

The earliest of the spacious landscaped-style cemeteries is Père Lachaise in Paris. This embodied the idea of state- rather than church-controlled burial – a concept that spread through Europe with the Napoleonic invasions, and sometimes became adapted leading to the opening of cemeteries by private companies. The shift to municipal cemeteries or those established by private companies was usually accompanied by the establishing of spacious, landscaped, burial grounds outside of the city limits.

Cemeteries are usually a respected area, and often include churches or other religious buildings (chapels); and sometimes a crematorium for the cremation of the dead. The violation of the graves or buildings is usually considered a very serious crime, and punishments are often severe.

The style of cemeteries varies greatly internationally. For example, in the United States and many European countries, modern cemeteries usually have many tombstones placed on open spaces. In Russia, tombstones are usually placed in small fenced family lots. (This was once common practice in American cemeteries as well, and such fenced family plots are still visible in some older American cemeteries.)


Cemetery excavations, like this one in Madrid, can alleviate overcrowding.Cemeteries in cities use valuable urban space, which could become a problem, especially in older cities. As historic cemeteries begin to reach their capacity for full burials, alternative memorialization, such as collective memorials for cremated individuals, is becoming more common. Different cultures have different attitudes to destruction of cemeteries and use of the land for construction. In some countries it is considered normal to destroy the graves, while in others the graves are traditionally respected for a century or more. In many cases, after a suitable period of time has elapsed, the headstones are removed and the now former cemetery is converted to a recreational park or construction site. A more recent trend, particularly in South American cities, involves constructing high-rise buildings to house graves.

Haunted Cemeteries

Although it might seem pretty obvious as to why graveyards are notoriously haunted, bodies are buried there, right? This is really not enough of a reason, if we view this explanation logically. After we are dead, it is reported by those who have had a near death experience that the first thing we do is look back with complete disinterest on our own physical bodies. This makes sense, since the life force has left the body and there is no longer any use for it. It does seem clear that some spirits do have some sentimental feelings, or a compulsion to return to where their human remains were put to rest. Some theorize that spirits hang out at cemeteries drawing upon the energies of their decaying bodies, claiming energies in the cells still fire, but I doubt this, since many ghost anomalies appear in very old historical graveyards that have not had a burial over many years. Instead, it appears that cemeteries may simply be an opening or a portal for the spirits to pour through, almost like an airport or bus station for ghosts.

Perhaps the reason is cemeteries are places where events of high emotion take place, such as funerals. Graveyards are also a place where we reflect upon the lives of people we have lost, or at least, we are aware of another’s loss. Perhaps this provides just enough inspiration or contemplation to pull the spirits down. Not matter what reason behind cemetery haunting really is, there is a plethora of evidence that points out that this phenomenon exists. Therefore, if you are looking to gather evidence of haunting, a public cemetery is a good place to start out. Try not to trespass after dark, if there are signs that say they prohibit visitors after dusk. Dusk is a very good time to take ghost pictures. Sometimes you can notify the groundkeeper and get permission to go in after dark.

There is no architecture in New Orleans, except in the cemeteries ?
- Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi

MARIE LAVEAU TOMB PICTURES ON THE INTERNET

So much of New Orleans is at, or below, sea level that early settlers who buried their dead - and there were many of them - found that during the frequent flooding great waves of moldy coffins would float to the surface of the sodden earth. Eventually, graves began to be placed, Spanish-style, in above-ground brick and stucco vaults, surrounded by small fences. These cemeteries grew to resemble cities, laid out in "streets"; today, as the tombs crumble away amid the overgrown foliage, they have become atmospheric in the extreme. The creepiness isn't totally imaginary, either - though armed muggers, rather than ghosts, are the danger these days. You should never venture here alone. Nearly all the city tours include a trip around one of the graveyards; some specialize in them.

Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 Washington Ave and Prytania. Built in 1833, by 1852 - when 2000 yellow fever victims were buried here - the Garden District cemetery was filled to capacity. Today it is an eerie place, with many tombs sinking into the ground, and some of them slowly opening in the shadow of tangled trees. It's no surprise that all this decaying grandeur should capture the imagination of local author Anne Rice, who has used the place in many of her books - she even staged a mock funeral here, to launch publication of Memnoch the Devil ; the corpse was herself, wearing an antique wedding dress, in an open coffin carried by pall bearers.

St Louis Cemetery No. 1 400 Basin St between Conti and St Louis. The oldest City of the Dead, dating from 1789, this small graveyard is full of crooked mausoleum jutting into narrow pathways. On the fringes of the Quarter, it is a regular stop on the tour bus circuit, and you will invariably come across a crowd by the tomb of "voodoo queen" Marie Laveau , graffitied with brick-dust crosses. Marie Laveaus Ghost is said to haunt the cemetery. and many Ghost photos, and EVP's occur. This haunted Cemetery is said to be the most haunted in all the state.

St Louis Cemetery No. 2 200 N Claiborne Ave between Iberville and St Louis. One of the most desolate Cities of the Dead, hemmed in between a Tremé housing project and the interstate. Built in 1823, it's a prime example of local cemetery design, with a dead-straight center aisle lined with grandiose Greek Revival mausolea.

This site was previously a horse racing track, Metarie Race Course founded in 1838. The great oval of the old racetrack can still be seen as part of the cemetery roadway system. Metairie Cemetery covers 150 acres with over 7,000 graves.

According to a story well known locally, one Charles T. Howard, a "new money" wealthy gentleman who came to the city from Baltimore, Maryland, was refused membership in the track's exclusive "Louisiana Jockey Club". In revenge, he purchased the track grounds and converted it into a cemetery. Some local historians accept the story, others say that the race grounds were sold due to financial stress. Either way, the cemetery was opened here in 1872, and the tomb of Charles T. Howard is prominently placed in the center.

A few tombs predating the foundation of this cemetery can be found here; these were originally erected in other local cemeteries and were moved here after Metarie became the city's most prestigious cemetery. Metarie Cemetery has the largest collection of elaborate marble tombs and funeral statuary in the city.

Some older sections of Rookwood are overgrown with a riot of plants, early horticultural plants, some now large trees or groves, as well as an interesting array of remnant indigenous flora. This results in quite an eclectic mix of flora to be found within the necropolis. Many say that since so many are interred here it can't just help being one of the most haunted places where the dead are buried.

The name Rookwood came some 20 years after the establishment of the necropolis, it was a means to differentiate the local village of Haslams Creek from the association of the burial ground, the village changed its name to Rookwood, and naturally the cemetery was soon known as Rookwood, the village changed its name again in the early 20th Century to "Lidcombe" (a combination of two Mayors names, Lidbury and Larcombe - Larcombe was also a Monumental Stone Mason). The cemetery retained the name Rookwood.

Approximately one million people have their final resting place within the boundaries of its almost 3 km². The "Friends of Rookwood Inc" raise public awareness of the cultural and historical value of the cemetery and also the need to ensure its preservation.
