Ghosts in the graveyard — Union Gate Cemetery
I didn’t see anything but a lot of stories abound from people’s experiences inside Union Gate Cemetery — a neighborhood dive of a graveyard in Easton, Connecticut that sits between the crossroads of three roads with a small creek behind it. I’ve been wanting to check this place out since I was about 11 or 12. My girlfriend had to work in Danbury so I took the car out for a ride until I ran into Union Gate.
It’s positioned in a strange place. Usually when you drive past a cemetery, there are trees and a good block of land separating it from highways or roads but this one was right there like a gas station. If there was any place you’d hope to be haunted it should be the one that’s convenient, easy to get in, and easier to get out. The old part of the cemetery is in ruins with some graves dating back to 1763. Most of these gravestones are in disrepair while the “newer section” is bountiful with large headstones but even some of these had broken apart either due to Connecticut’s ever-changing climate or late night visitors who can’t behave themselves. I’m guessing the latter.
It was raining when I got there so taking pictures with my camera was at times difficult. Anyway, here are some pictures I caught:
