BONDS CHAPEL CEMETERY
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of the Bonds Chapel Cemetery.

Anyone growing up in southern Indiana has at one time or another, been taken out to Bonds Chapel outside West Baden for a snipe hunt. If you do not know what a snipe hunt is, it is when a group of people get together, hand one person a bag, and have them sit in a dark, eerie, cemetery waiting to catch a snipe while the others are suppose to be getting one to head their way. The problem is, this is just a joke and the person is really left holding the bag, as the rest of the group drive off and leave the person behind in the cemetery. However, in Bonds cemetery the snipe-hunting prank also involves the tale of the haunted tombstone.

There is a tombstone in the cemetery that actually grows the impression of a chain down its side. The chain grows one link each year on the anniversary of the death of the man that calls the grave home. As the story goes, the man beat someone to death with a chain, thus the reason for a chain.

Family members believed that the impression of a chain was some type of error by the stonecutter and even had the tombstone replaced. This did not do a bit of good; the chain began to grow again. No matter what anyone says, you can take a picture of the tombstone and go back in exactly one year and there will be another link on the chain.

The family will not discuss the man’s death, so the legend just goes on and on from one generation to other. Maybe if you are daring enough you can visit on the anniversary of his death and see how this mysterious link appears.
