LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Stull cemetery.
The Stull Cemetery in
Kansas is one of the most famous haunted cemeteries. “Haunted” may
in fact be too mild a term as it has been said that it is one of the
most Satanic places on earth. Due to the evil stories that have been
told about this place, it is also one of the most controversial
landmarks in America and holds as it’s claim to fame, “One of the
Seven Gateways to Hell.”
Stull Cemetery lies in the sleepy
little town of Stull, Kansas. An abandoned church still lies beside
the cemetery. The town itself would probably have been completely
forgotten, if not for the stories of evil that surround it. The
actual town holds only about twenty residents, very few houses, and
one new church.
The stories that have been told about
Stull Cemetery and the old church include stories of witchcraft,
ghosts, and supernatural happenings. Although it’s been said that
these stories have been told for hundreds of years, the first to be
documented weren’t until 1974. It was at this time that the
University of Kansas newspaper ran a story about the cemetery saying
that it was haunted and that the devil himself appeared there twice
a year. The article told many stories that had been handed down
through the generations but it also included some student’s first
hand experience with the grounds.
One student claimed to have his arm
grabbed by something that could not be seen while others reported
that they had lapses in memory while they stood on the property. The
article also spoke of witchcraft and devil worship that happened on
The article stirred up much controversy
in the town of Stull. The article amused some of the residents while
others were enraged that people would say such things about
something in their town. The pastor of the new church claimed that
he believed the stories could be attributed to the imaginations of
young, university students.
But then talk began again in the 1980s.
A story came out at this time that two young men visited the
cemetery and became scared when strong winds came out of nowhere.
They were so terrified that they ran back to their car, only to find
that it had been moved to the opposite side of the highway, and
facing the other direction. Another man claimed that he too had felt
this wind but he had been inside the old church at the time. His
claim was that the wind was so forceful it pushed him to the ground
and would not allow him back up for a significant period of time. It
has also been said that rain will not fall into the old church
although the building has no roof.
The stories of the devil appearing there say that he will come at
midnight on Halloween night. While this seems to be too horror
movie-like, the sheriff and authorities will not allow any visitors
at this time although people are welcome to come visit until
11:30pm. And while the residents of Stull deny all the rumours
surrounding the cemetery and the old church, they will not tear the
old church down to end the rumours. So one has to decide for
themselves if the stories are true or really just the workings of
overacting imaginations. Although it is important to remember that
even if the stories are fictional, what brought them up in the first
place if there isn’t a grain of truth in them?
