There has been allot of talk about Spider Gates for years now the upshot is one town historian there actually did real research to try and prove if there was anything solid behind any of the stories like "some kid hung himself from the tree there" in a nutshell he could find no evidence that anything happened there ever and he worked with the police dept. in doing his research.

This place is a no tresspassing area one reason is vandalism there has been serious destruction to the graves and the gates there over the years, someone busted out they spider shape on one of the gates to try make it into a peace sign. The gates were a unique piece of art that can't be replaced. That is why police patrol there to try and keep the vandals at bay.

Now is it haunted, who knows but I would be really angry if people kept coming in and trashing the place. It's sad but I find that vandalized and neglected graveyards are the most active.

I recently visited a website of New England paranormal investigators. The person conducting the research seemed very logical to me, not one to be too spooky, and honestly found nothing of interest to him, other than the gates which he took many pictures of. He did visit in the daytime, but that should not matter when it comes to activity.

Please note that the researcher did have permission from the local police department before entering the premises.

I personally have been there on a couple occassions.  I have a couple of personal rumors from kids in my town and parents.  Whether they are true or not who knows.  One of the stories is quite interesting.  According to the father of a friend of mine, he went to the gates as a kid of age 18 or so.  While there (at night time) he supposedly interacted with a ghost which told him that he would have a son.  Well wouldn't you have it, months later his girlfriend was pregnant with a baby boy (my friend).  There are also stories of satanic rituals that have been held there.  Also, there are supposedly 8 gates at which you can pass through.  The last gate is supposed to be the portal to hell.  My group did not find all these gates.  Only the one leading into the cemetary.  I think its all in the eye of the beholder.  If you want to have a scary experience you probably will have one.  Personally, the first time I went was with a group of 5 people.  I must say I was pretty freaked out thinking of all the rumors and what not.  It is pitch black on the road to where the cemetary is near.  No cell phones work nor can you use your low beams on the car as you are not able to see a BAD_WORD thing.  Upon moving down the trail you can't see your hand in front of your face.  We didn't find anything amazingly scary.  Nothing you couldn't attribute to being in a forest at night but scary nonetheless.  It was pretty interesting seeing all these old old grave stones in the middle of the woods.  The most odd thing I must say is that it seemed as though it was getting warmer and warmer the longer we stayed in the vicinity.  After a while it was almost unbearable and we began to sweat.  That was about it.  The second time around was not as exciting as I did not do as much exploring of the area.  My friend freaked out and we had to leave.  That is about it with my explorings of Spider Gates.  I plan on making a return trip there this upcoming summer and would be glad to share any stories of encounters I may have there.

Welcome to GV, GroundZero. Enjoy the stay!

It is surely an intresting information. But why do you feel the gates are all in the eye of the beholder? Could it also be attributed to different dimensions?

I suppose that is a possibility.  I don't think it really is haunted.  I think that is just people's minds playing tricks on them.  But hey, I don't want to be a downer either.  I think it would be quite interesting to witness some paranormal activity.

Spider Gates is a haunt that i would like to venture to one day.  But the story behind spider gates is that it is supposed to be one of the 9 gates to hell.  The original gates were taken down a number of years ago and put in a unknown museum.  But supposively a young girl had run from her parents and taken shelter in a cave next to the cemetary that she and her friends had found earlier some time.  The next morning when the girl did not arrive home, the set up search parties for her.  Upon asking her friends, they found out about the cave and immediately went up there.  All they found was a mangled corpse that had been ripped apart by some creature.  But the looked to her side and they found her pack of cigarettes.  Later when they did the autopsy, through dental records they identified her as the missing girl but also found that no known animal could have done that too her.  Many people have told me  that wierd things happen up there at night and i still think that it would be a worthwhile visit.  I hope that helps.
