PostSubject: BACHELOR'S GROVE CEMETERY   Thu Sep 27, 2007 12:50 pm

There are more ghost stories and eerie legends told about this small, abandoned cemetery than any other place in the Chicago area. It is located on the edge of the Rubio Woods Forest Preserve, near the suburb of Midlothian, Illinois. This ramshackle burial ground is said to be infested with ghosts and more than 100 different reports of strange phenomena have been collected about the place... including actual apparitions, unexplained sights and sounds, and even glowing balls of light. There have been no burials here for years and as a place of rest for the departed, it has been largely forgotten. But ask any ghost chaser where to go to find a hauntings and chances are, this cemetery will be very high on the list!

The haunted history of the place began in 1844 when the area was set aside as a burial ground, first called "Everdon's". The cemetery saw its first burial that year and it was in steady use until 1965, when things began to drop off. It should be noted that the last actual burial here was in 1989, when the ashes of a local resident were interred on the grounds. However, before that time (and since) the place has been abandoned. In the middle 1800's, the cemetery became known as "Bachelor's Grove", although history is a bit cloudy as to how this name came about.
