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 & it was in steady use until 1965 when things began to drop off. It should be noted that the last actual burial there was in 1989, when the ashes of a local resident were interred on the grounds. However, before that time & since the place has been abandoned & vandalized. In the middle 1800s, the cemetery became known as Bachelor's Grove, although history is a bit cloudy as to how this name came about.

The lady sleeps! Oh, may her sleep,
Which is enduring, so be deep!
Heaven have her in its sacred keep!
This chamber changed for one more holy,
This bed for one more melancholy,
I pray to God that she may lie,
For ever with unopened eye,
While the pale sheeted ghosts go by!
