This cemetery is located off of Fort Dade Ave. in Brooksville and it is an old black cemetery with the earliest "known" burial starting in the late 1800s. It has been said that at dusk, you can see what seems to be a man hanging from a tree limb. Groups of ghosts have also been seen standing together around the headstones of family plots. One report claims you can hear an infant crying at certain times during the night.

  • Strange experiences, day and night

    I've made many respectful visits here, always being very careful in my walking and picture taking. A couple of times I've even cleaned up fast food trash and beer cans that dorks have left behind. It doesn't seem that pictures or links can be uploaded here, but if they can I have some very interesting stuff, I think. No hanging man from any tree, I sure hope to never see such a tragic sight. But very interesting day and night pics, if uploading is allowed???

  • The scariest experience

    I used to go out there all the time and each time was a different experience but the last time made me never want to go back. As I pulled through the gates my lights started flickering, we drove to the further corner of the cemetery and parked. While outside the car all of my friends were standing around talking I was taking numerous pictures and wanted to view them afterwards. I suddenly heard a baby cry and my friends got scared and went to the car I stayed however and while standing there a loud ROAR (no joke) like screamed in my ear, I ran back to the car to try to leave but my car felt stuck, the cameras wouldn't let me take any more pictures, we seen two headlights entering the gates, looked like a really old fantasy car from the 1800's but as the car got closer it disappeared, when I went home I viewed my pictures and I seen a man hanging from a rope on the first big tree in the cemetery, the second pictures had like 5 different faces on my friends face and another picture looked like a ghost wearing a dress but couldn't really make up the full imagine and many orbs. This place is scary and has a lot of history behind it, the meat grinder is still in the woods as well.

  • Halloween

    My best friend, her boyfriend and I were out last Halloween riding around. Her and I were both so drunk and we were looking for an adventure. We weren't from brooksville, we were just out there for a party. When passing the cemetery we knew nothing about it, but my friend and I both begged her boyfriend to pull in through the gates. So he finally did and he parked. All 3 of us felt chills immediately. we stayed in the car and joked around trying to scare eachother and suddenly my friend opened the car door and started running towards the woods, then stopped and was staring up at the trees. Her boyfriend and I were both confused and freaked out & shouted at her to come back. She turned around and told us to be quiet and then we heard a baby crying in the distance that got louder and louder until it stopped out of nowhere. She ran back to the car and we tried to leave and our TIRES WERE STUCK IN THE SAND. We were all extremely scared,her boyfriend called his friend who left the party when we did, and he said he'd come with his truck and help us out but it'd be about 30 minutes. It was the longest 30 minutes of my life, and I'm pretty sure he arrived about 10 mins sooner than he said he would... the car lights started turning on and off, and the radio started skimming through different radio stations and the music would go from sounding normal to distorted. Then the car shut off completely and all 3 of us heard the voice of a man coming from inside the car whispering my friends name. Then we heard tapping on the back window. We saw flashlights coming from the woods and nobody else was out there. My friends boyfriend who is like super serious type and hardly ever jokes around swore he saw a little girl running towards the car WITH NO FACE. The next morning the drivers side of the car had a scratch all the way down the side of it, and all the windows were covered in child hand prints.

  • Most powerful exlerience i have had

    (Visit Feb 2017) A friend brought me and my daughter there to show me some of historic Spring Hill/Brooksville. It was day time when we went. I have never felt more energy in one place. I didnt feel the energy inside the graveyard, I felt it outside the white fence looking in a us (mostly from the area with the clearing, straight ahead from where you pull in). It was a peaceful feeling. We walked around and looked at dates and names. I was very intrigued by the energy. I have had 2 experiences with hauntings, one peaceful and one not so much once we disturbed her. Although we had no interaction with the spirits they knew we were there and we knew they were. It was a very enlightening experience. Beautiful cemetery ??

  • It's my HAPPY place!!!

    Yes, I'm being for real! The cemetery is my happy place. I stumbled upon this gem of a location about 3 years ago when I had moved out to the area. I was/still am very much into the paranormal. I also work with a paranormal team doing investigations. Needless to say... I did my research on this beautiful haunt spot and took the past claims and went out on several occasions and still do to this day, including tonight to conduct my own investigation. I've had several experiences while out there. The very first was a child sized hand print on my car when no children were in or around my car or with me. I've captured multiple EVP's, pictures of orbs, pictures of large white mists, my hands been touched, my hair has been played with, I've heard the blood curdling scream of a woman on multiple occasions, dogs barking in the woods surrounding it when there's no houses close enough for you to hear anyone's pets that may be outside, the dolls at the girls grave have been scattered throughout the cemetery or just missing in general, the 2 lights in the corner of the cemetery flicker off and on, upon entering the gate you will sometimes get the feeling of being watched or that you're not welcome there, I've heard foot steps walking behind and around me, something charged at me from in the woods but when I stopped it did and continued as I walked back to my car but nothing ever appeared, I've seen shadow figures and heard someone walking through the woods while I've been sitting in the bed of the truck. Now, like most haunted locations it has its past and don't we all... it's been known for drugs, grave robbing, a murder(s) happened there, satanist, and KKK have all played a part in its history. But as frightening as most of these experiences have been I still love going there. Day or night. I was there again tonight and it was an experience!

  • It's my happy place ??

    I found this cemetery about 3 years ago when I moved out to the area. I love the paranormal and do investigations with a team. I go out there more often than not and on countless occasions have caught EVP's, pictures of orbs, heard a woman's blood curdling scream multiple times. I've been during the day and it seems like your everyday run of the mill cemeteries but at night it takes on a whole different light, or darkness you could say. There's been dogs that have been heard barking in the woods with no houses close enough to hear any pets they may have, lights flickering on and off in 2 corners of the cemetery, the dolls at the little girls grave have been moved around or are completely gone and upon entering the gate you get this overwhelming feeling of being watched/like you shouldn't be there. I've also had a child sized hand print on my car when no children were in or around it, my hands been touched, I've had my hair played with. It's never let me down for experiences that's for sure. Springhill cemetery has had its dark past as all good haunts have. There's been problems with people going out and abandoning animals, drugs, grave robbing when "satanist'" went there, murders and history with the KKK. It's a beautiful place with a rich history! I love it ????

  • My momma always told me..

    I happened to wonder across this cemetery with a friend a few years back. We were waiting on a another friend to finish a job interview at the RaceTrac on FortDade so we decided to walk around the cemetery. At the time I didn't have shoes on just socks so I was kind of stepping from stone to stone to avoid any sandspurs. I have always loved looking at grave stone dates and all the names. We decided to leave and as we did for some reason I recalled my mom telling me as a child never to walk on the graves because it was disrespectful. I got a really eerie feeling all of a sudden. As we got in his car (which was parked just inside the metal gate) a voice in my head told me to put my seat belt on because we were going to crash (it wasnt my own voice).Before I could get the words out he lost control of the wheel and we spun multiple times before sliding so far in the sand I couldnt open my car door. I was less than 2 inches from a tree. The car digging in the sand is all that saved me. I had been riding with my friend for years and never been even close to an accident. We had to literally dig his tires out of the sand. When I asked him what happened he couldn't explain. I have returned twice after that, the last time was less than 4 months ago. I found what looked like a voodoo seance hanging from a tree. It had some flowers on it and a weird old altoid mint container attatched. We didnt open it. The friend I was with and myself looked at each other and ran to the car. I refuse to go back. I get a bad feeling just thinking about it. I have heard from friends and old folk in Brooksville that there was a KKK slaughter house somewhere behind the cemetery if you walked outside of the fence straight back. I myself have never wondered back there and I have no intentions too. Seeing that this is a mostly colored cemetery I wonder if the spirits have some anger towards lighter skinned people. I am very curious but I'm scared enough to never go back.

  • Been there multiple times..something everytime.

    Scariest time was: there were quite a few of us around 10 and we all heard a lady screaming. While we were Back in the woods down a road we heard a pack of dogs barking chasing us and they kept getting closer and closer,we started running toward the car as soon as we got to the car they stopped. Last time we were there a cop came and made us leave, he said people have been out there vandalizing the place. I don't know how people can say they have never heard or seen anything out there.

  • SPRING HILL CEMETERY

    Back in high school in 2004 me and my buddies would go back there with girls and act all tough try to scare them. Well one night we went back there around 3am and parked and turned the lights off. We opened the windows and everyone was scared saying to close the windows and just kidding around I said, "do u hear that?" As everyone got quiet we heard a baby crying in the woods, I turned the lights back on and out of no where there was a guy standing over a grave holding a flashlight that wasn't on! I backed the vehicle up almost backed right into an oak tree ripped a U-turn and floored it down fort Dade toward 50! Never been back since!

  • Cuts power to cars

    2 nights in a row while driving past 2 different cars stopped running and had to be towed. Both cars went to a mechanic and both cars had nothing wrong and started up fine the next morning with no explanation. On another occasion while driving up to the entrance a blackness enveloped the vehicle and felt it push backwards. We left quickly. Feeling shaken we were not curious anymore and decided it's best to leave them at rest.

  • Not Scary

    Not Scary at all. I've been out there a lot of times over the past 30 years. Never heard anything or seen anything except for an OWL. Not to crash on someone's parade but, believe all of this crap it you all want to.

  • Little girl

    I went out there with a few friends and have pictures of a little girl sitting next to a tree then in the next few pictures she gets up and runs away and disappears. I already know to not drive past the gate because it is known that your battery will die. It felt like something was pushing us out. We also had recordings of a man laughing and someone humming a song.

  • Warning.

    Went out there over 10 years ago with a few friends. We were all packed in a pickup truck. Once we got to the cemetery we got out and walked around it was late after midnight. Only way we could see was with the headlights from the car. We started walking around and once we were far enough from the truck the lights went out. Pitch black!!! None of us had a lighter or flashlight. Nowhere to run because you couldn't see anything. One of us had a cell phone old Nokia. As soon as we got the phone out to guide us back to the truck it died. Screaming yelling and crying some of us we made it back to truck and it didn't start after 20 tries it did. We left and me personally never went back. I took it as a warning.

  • lnteresting experience

    I took my niece and nephew out there about 10 years ago or so now and we were in the car,turned the radio down and blessed ourselves before exiting the car. We stod about 10feet infront of the car we were in. My nephew out of nowhere takes off back to the car. My niece and myself continued up through the graveyard, when we heard foot steps just to the right of the cemetary. We stopped, it stopped moving when we did. She took off back to the car. Im tryong not to trip over the head stones. We got back into the car. I started backing up to leave the cemetary and the radio came back on by itself to old music from generations before us. By the time i got back to my house that night. There was a piece of my front fender well gone where the hood and fender lined up together... My nephew later told us the reason he ran back to the car was because something touched the back of his neck in sweeping motion towards his head. Thats an experience i will never forget !
