Is Hanford's Calvary Cemetery haunted?


The entrance to Hanford's Calvary Cemetery

There have been stories for years claiming that the Calvary Cemetery in Hanford, CA is haunted. No one really knows when or where these stories originated. Rumor has it that the cemetery is open late every Friday and tourists come to see the mausoleum as this seems to be the center of any paranormal activity.

People have spoken of sensing some strange type of entities in the mausoleum when they first enter, almost as if someone or something is watching them. Others have claimed to hear voices when they are in the mausoleum, though they cannot discern whose voices they are or what they are saying.

The mausoleum where most of the activity occurs

There have also been sightings since the 1960's of a woman dressed in a white dress circling the mausoleum late at night. No one knows who she is, if she is interned in the mausoleum or she wanders the grounds for some other reason.

Whatever is going on here, it must be something for the stories to have lasted for so many years.

i can honestly say that i can't believe in ghost until someone proves to me that they exist. i guess i just have to see for myself ;)...

my dad put a tape recorder in the mausoleum overnight. both he & my mom listened to the recordings, & she has told me that there was moaning, screaming & crying. this was sometime in the early 1980's.

My family is buried in that mausoleum and I think this is a bunch of baloney!
