Maple Hill Cemetery is the oldest and largest cemetery in Huntsville, Alabama. Founded on two acres in about the year 1822,
it now encompasses nearly 100 acres and contains over 80,000 burials.
There is a playground set up near the cemetery. It is said the ghosts of children play and swing on the swingsets.
Apparitions have been seen, and captured on film by investigations.
The swings sometimes can be seen swinging by themselves, and sounds of laughter and children’s voices are heard.
Around 1960, a group of abducted children’s bodies were found on these grounds.
It was added to the Alabama Historical Commission’s Historic Cemetery Register in 2008,
and to the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.
