North Kirtland (Temple) Cemetery


Some local townsfolks say that the cemetery next to the temple,

is haunted.


Its been said that late at night you can hear the cries of a baby coming from inside one of the small graves. 




North Kirtland cemetery, even though it is right across Maple Street from the famous Kirtland Temple, is not, and never has been, a church cemetery. Most people have always called it "The Temple Cemetery" for its proximity to the famous landmark. The City of Kirtland, previously Kirtland Township, cemetery predates the Mormon movement and migration of 1830. In fact, in a quick survey of the readings, the earliest burial date on a stone seems to be Oct. 1, 1828. And in the 1830s it was known as the Kirtland Mills Burying Ground.




 The KPRS Team has entered the cemetery during the day and we did find a small odd grave that did have a stone sculpture of a baby inside of it. We have stopped along side of the road to snap a few photos late at night and did find some strange anomalies. We did ask permission to do a formal investigation of the cemetery and we got the runaround until they told us that the mayor would have to give us permission. 

 The photo of the anomaly that we caught is on our Photo Gallery page.
