Maple Hill Cemetery and The Dead Children’s Playground

Dead Children’s Playground

Maple Hill Cemetery in Huntsville is the largest and oldest in the state. It was founded in 1822 and covers 100 acres. Near the cemetery, there’s a playground where children’s spirits are rumored to go to play. The spirits aren’t just those from the cemetery, though. In the 1960s there was a series of child abductions and the bodies were left around the playground. Visitors have reported seeing swings move with no explanation, orbs, and mysterious figures. When the Alabama Paranormal Society did their investigation in 2008, they heard a female voice. In the pictures they took, a woman’s figure is apparent among the orbs.
