Alton Cemetery - Real Haunted Place
This cemetery is believed to be haunted by a number of ghosts. One is Lucy Haskell, a 9 year old girl who can be seen in the vicinity of the Hayner/Haskell monument. Another is a spectral woman dressed in black that appears near the Grandview mausoleum. Third is a publisher and minister, Elijah P. Lovejoy. Lovejoy was an abolitionist who was shot at a pro-slavery riot in 1837. His ghost is known to appear and hang out near his monument and occasionally he'll manifest as cold spots.
