Stories of this cemetery say that there is a secret passage that opens up at night, when trees part and a path appears to an ancient graveyard. A phantom wolf is rumored to protect it and chade away trespassers. Please note: This cemetery is not to be confused with another Anderson Cemetery near Palmer, IL.

  • People Are Goin To The Wrong One

    The real Anderson Cemetery is not the one around the corner from Witches Bridge outside of Palmer. That one I personally have never had experiences at. The legitimately scary Anderson Cemetery is 45 minutes from Taylorville. It's west of Raymond, south of Auburn, and a little northeast of Carlinville.

  • Filming

    I was here 2 years ago to film for my channel there is a new side to the cemetery and the further to the back of it is much older graves, the only odd thing for me was I hit a cold spot could see my breath and it passed as fast as it set in. A bunch of wildlife in the area too due to the creek that just beyond the tree line. Also right down the road is Witches Bridge which has its own legend attached to it. Very dark at night so be weary.

  • Be careful

    Came once in the middle of the day and as I was leaving I felt something attach to me. (I’m an empath) came back at night and seen several figures. Take caution when coming here at any time of day

  • Typical cemetery

    Been going here for years for exercise. I have walked around this cemetery for years and can’t think of a single odd thing out of place. I’ve worked night shift for the last 15 years at a correctional facility, on my days off I’ll walk around this area, at night. I just recently seen a tiktok about some mysterious cemetery x and decided to google it and this place isn’t something special.

  • Don’t come here alone

    went here with my girlfriend and as soon as we got out of the car we heard someone screaming from the cemetery. we then walked about halfway to the cemetery until we both had a terrible feeling come upon us that someone or something was watching us

  • Most visceral experience I've had

    Don't taunt the unseen. There is a bench between two trees. DON'T sit on it, DON'T stand on it. We had a phantom chase us back to the entrance. Honestly, truly, horrifying. Exercise caution and get home safely.
