  • Tillett Cemetery

    My husband and I went there today. He was on the far left side of the cemetery, and I was on the right side of the cemetery closer to the woods edge. I was taking pictures of tombstones and I heard someone or something say hey down here. I thought it was my husband I yelled at him and said what did you say. He said nothing I'm just taking pictures. I felt like someone was walking right behind me, my husband was not around me at the time.

  • It was WILD

    I went there with my girl and a few friends of mine. We took the trail through the woods to get into it. It was very foggy and once you got in, it felt really eerie. We went at about 1 or 2 in the morning. It was cool reading all the different headstones and seeing the years and names on them. One of my friends was taking pictures the entire time and caught a few orbs. We all kept walking and we got to the hill, and right when we got to the hill it started getting cold. My girl said she felt someone breath hot air down her neck, and one of my friends said she felt someone pull her hair as we were leaving.

  • dont go

    My aunt and my dad has told me stories about this place and i was born and raised here in Peru, Indiana and i still live here but anyways my aunt and dad has told me that when they were little that they had a relative that lived in a house up in the woods and they would stay the night there well they said that at night when they got to bed that they would see a ghostly face in there bedroom window and their lights would go out they also would hear their horses running down the hill and the next day they would get up and find their hound dogs in the grave yard dead but there would be no blood or wounds on them. My aunt has also told me that when she was a teenager her friends where talking about the place and she didnt believe what they were saying about it so she had them take her up there and she went by her self and nothing happened at first but then she said that it was getting foggy and cold and she turned around and seen this tall dark fog figure with a hook coming at her she also said that she seen a black cat with the head in the tree and body on a rock. Now my experience my aunt took me and my cousin up there and me and cousin went by ourselves together and this is during the day time well we couldnt find it and we didnt see anything out of the ordanery so we went back down and told our aunt that we couldnt find the grave yard so she walked with us but on the way up we seen a rock that was white and with a hand pointing to where we needed to go and it was not there when it was just me and my cousin so we found a steep hill and walked up it and there was the grave yard we didnt see anything but my aunt freaked out and said run because there was a black fog going around me and my cousin so we all started running and while we ran my cousin was tripped and i was pushed and when we got home my cousin had a hand print on her ankle and i had hand prints on my back.
