The Tolomato Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in the U.S. and it has quite the spooky story. The story says that a young woman was being prepared for burial here, and during her funeral procession her forehead was accidentally punctured while passing under an Apopinax tree. She bled profusely leading to the discovery that she was not actually dead! Six years later, the woman really did pass away and reports say her apparition has been seen along with those of children.

  • An Intense Night

    My Father and I decided to have a foray into the Tolomato Cemetery after a ghost tour at the cemetery gates back around 2003. We waited until around 10-11pm and went in through a hole that was in the fence in the NW corner of the graveyard accessed from an adjacent parking lot. My dad went in first and I waited about 10 seconds to go in after him. Right before I climbed through the hole I saw him turn his head as if to say something to someone who was right behind him without looking back. I then walked up behind him and he turned and looked at me with a very confused expression. He said that he heard me come into the cemetery right after he did and walk up behind him at which time he whispered to "me" to stay close to him. I confirmed that I had saw him say something as I was just about to climb in and we both knew at that moment that we were in for a memorable visit. After walking around with open minds and senses for several minutes I started to notice that whenever I was near a certain spot I would immediately feel pressure on my chest, my heart would race and I would sweat profusely. I moved back and forth from the spot and the other side of the main path and the feelings would come and go much like flipping a light switch. The entire time we were in there, we heard footsteps all around us, always maintaining a certain distance and see shadows darting between the trees and the headstones. Needless to say, we quickly started to feel as if we were greatly intruding on something and after about 20 minutes, we left. Afterwards, for several hours, we both felt physically ill. I have yet been to a place as intensely active as the Tolomoto Cemetery.
