Hello! I live in Kentucky and I am planning on venturing down to Grandview Cemetery (aka Hell's Gate). I contacted both the Breckinridge County and Harding County historical societies and they assured me that it isn't private property and I can poke around there.

Has anyone ever been there?

I'm from Ohio, but I'd love to hear some of the stories and legends associated with this place. Do tell, please.Posted Image

Hey there!!! What part of Ohio are you in?
I really would like to go up to Bobby Mackey's, it's in Kentucky but closer to Cincinnati, than Louisville where I am.

Both places I'm sure would be a great investigation. Let us know what happens please.
Right this way to my haunted space.

I'm way up in Cleveland. However, I have heard of Bobby Mackey's. I saw it on T.V. actually.

I've investigated Bobby Mackey's....I'm not impressed, lol.

This cemetery sounds intriguing, though. I've heard several years ago they were having a huge problem with vandalism, and suspected animal abuse/sacrifice. Please be careful if you go...and don't go alone. Also, even if you're being told its not private property, you might want to seek permission from the actual county or town that owns the property, and make sure you're up to date on your state's cemetery code. I'm not familiar with KY, but I know here in WV that cemeteries, even "public," are technically closed at night. Scout it out in the day first.
