Old Burial Hill Cemetery - Real Haunts in Huntington NY
- Route 25A and Platt Place
- Huntington, NY
Old Burial Hill saw its first grave dug in 1712; it was also late occupied, desecrated, and used as a fort by British soldiers during the Revolution. Numerous tombstones were moved and torn down during this period, and many never made their way back to the correct grave. Many soldiers were also buried in the area. The ghosts of Colonel Thompson and Rev. Ebenezer Prime are said to haunt the cemetery, and some passersby have reported seeing children in the cemetery vanish into thin air.

Saw a man dressed in what appeared to be a revolutionary hat
Me and my lifelong friend went to the cemetery and walked around the perimeter outside the gates. We took videos and pictures of the cemetery with nothing seemingly out of the ordinary. On one of my videos, I faked being spooked at the beginning, and shook the camera from left to right. When I brought the camera back to the right, the silhouette of a man appears out of nowhere and focuses, just standing there. The separation on the legs can be seen, the head and the upper body as well. We believe this could be Colonel Thompson, but are unsure about what we have witnessed.Posted 1/23/18
