The Haunting of Ball Cemetery

About fifteen minutes south of Springfield, Nebraska, and just north of the Platte River, a winding dirt road snakes its way up to an iron gate marking the entrance to Ball Cemetery. There is only one way in, and one way out. Trespassers have been greeted by a caretaker with a shotgun who lives nearby. But for those who dare to enter, the cemetery has much darker threats than a groundskeeper. For decades, it has been said that this dark and lonely plot of land in the middle of nowhere is haunted by mysterious entities that defy rational explanation. A paranormal investigator and a few daring eyewitnesses recount a myriad of experiences from within the cemetery. From disembodied laughter and possession, to strange symbols appearing on cars…. what, or who, is haunting Ball Cemetery?

    I would love to see more pictures of the road leading to and the cemetery itself. Google images did not bring up much. Why is it guarded so heavily?

    use to go out there a lot in high school. It is creepy at night how all the trees bend in towards each other. The care taker just scares most people away. I have gone there and had flat tires and go to fill them up and nothing was wrong with them. Have seen little hand prints on the windows too. Most people also don’t realize there is an abandoned mine shaft or some kind of cave located on the property behind the cemetery. It is a cool place to go see in the day light, but to get the whole experience of it go at night and listen to the wind rip through the trees. When we where in high school we would start at the front corner and try to walk and touch all four corners of the place. It has been a long time since I have been back there but still have family that live in Springfield. Hope people have stopped vandalizing it. Its a neat place
