There have been strange sounds heard of babies crying as a result of the 9 Keller babies dying and they buried there. Perfect circles of rings of fire have been sited. Wooden crosses with animal skeletons have been found there. If you turn your car off at the gates of the chapel it will not start for a few hours. Strange things have been spotted moving around the cemetery and strangest sounds coming from inside the chapel itself.


Legend has it that an old church\graveyard on the outskirts of the town has been the host of many unexplainable events. We had heard from other`s experiances that there was truth to these rumors. We`re no skeptics but we wanted to see this for ourselves. Following the procedure we drove out to the graveyard slightly before midnight. Armed only with two flashlights we slowly approached the abandoned church. We couldn`t see inside the chapel, because the windows were boarded(no one seems to know why this is.) Looking out from beside the chapel we saw an eerie bright red light eminating from a tombstone about 100 yards away. We began to approach this light when it suddenly vanished. We searched but found no trace of where the light had come from. As we were heading back to the car, we happened to look back as we were passing the chapel and the light had reappeared on the same tombstone. Once again, we went in for a closer look, and it vanished once again. We suddenly heard a loud crash coming from the chapel. We both felt a cold presence around us and ran like hell back to the car. Scott pointed out that the light was back on the tombstone as I tried to start the car—but it wouldn`t start!!!! It had a near full tank of gas and had never done this before. We got out of the car, scared out of our minds, and watched the light. After a minute or so the light seemed to get brighter, and then suddenly dissappeared. At that moment the car started all by itself!! After a few minutes of deliberation, we hesitantly got in the car and sped off. Recently, other friends have been telling us about similar experiences at Keller`s Chapel.

The light is reflection off of the tombstone from the radio towers nearby, already confirmed it. The sound comes from an owl's nest that is in the attic of the church - guess when they come to feed?

I was at Keller's Chapel in 1970. All is true as the place is scary as Hell. We used to drive into the place to get high, but you didn't feel safe. Ask John Mitchell, Terry Miles, Ronnie Jones, Ron Gosa. The latter two already dead. Long time ago TLG

I used to be married to Ron Gosa.  We had a son together.  I remember him talking about hanging out at the graveyard when he was a kid.

I went to Keller's a few years back. We never saw a red light, but we did see regular ones just threw the trees. We heard screams and crying, dogs barking (naturally) but, we also heard scratching at the Chapel walls. Just before we were going to leave, we saw a little red tricycle, and as if THAT was creepy enough, when we went to get Jem from the car to help us investigate, the tric had moved locations. It was now flipped on its side shoved in mud by the Chapel.
There are other haunted places though. Check out Bono Bridge if you want a real thrill!

went to Kellers Chapel yesterday and saw the 9 Keller baby graves...which was pretty freaky (makes me wonder what really happened to them)...then saw one very old grave with a Ouija board in front of it!...then saw a pentagram spray painted on the lot in front of the chapel with 666 around it.

My publisher and I have written a book (in final edit stages) about historically significant but allegedly haunted venues in AR.  Would any person who has had a _personal_ experience at Keller's Cemetery or Chapel wish to reply and tell us your story (anonimously, if you wish.)  If you do choose to reply using your name, it may possibly be cited in the book, so you may wish to use 1st name only or initials.  We would welcome any comments from those having had actual supernatural, paranormal, or just plain creepy experiences at Keller's. 

Thanks very much,

Dude, this IS for real. And I'm not sure if it's really something good-. I got the vibe to not go back. We went at almost midnight and 3 minutes later a vehicle showed up and then crept away, I figured it was just someone making sure we weren't messing things up, we had a video camera and a small group. We walked around for quite a while and not too many things out of the ordinary happened. The lights flickered a little bit and we felt a bit of coldness around some of the graves and near the woods. We soon left, to be honest sort of disappointed. The next day a friend of mine who came along for the keller chapel experience went back during the day with her friend. When she got there, there were an obvious amount of tombstones broke in half and several that were actually uprooted from the ground then turned to an angle. This scared her and she called me to tell me I got the call and she said " Omg...I just took a picture of the cemetery and it looks like all the tombstones-" and the call was cut off. I tried to call her right back because I got a really eerie feeling and it went straight to voicemail. I then talked to her later that night and her phone did in fact die when she tried to tell me what happened, and her friends phone died as well, both batterys fully charged. And might I add- her phone would not direct her call to me all day, but had no problem with anyone else in her contacts. We took pictures and filmed when we visited Kellers Chapel and have proof of these grave stones.. It seems to me like we pissed something off- Regardless it's real.

Kellers chapel is under surveilance at all times. the door is an extreemly heavy metal door which is locked. there is a sticker on the door. the windows are NOT "boarded up" they're covered in cement and you can barely hear inside. Therefore it is virtually impossible for the door to be ajar.

I used to live in Jonesboro, and I have been out to Kellar's Chapel hundreds of times.  Always gave me the creeps.  I could see shadowy figures in the trees or near the chapel itself. and could hear faint crying noises.  The most freaky thing that happened was every time I went my flashlight would die and it would start working again when I got back home.

I have not seen any evidence to back up these claims, however my sponsor would like for my team to go in and debunk or document any or all of these claims, we have been doing this professionally for 8 years, and have been very sucessful. maybe we'll get a chance to find out. if anyone have more information about this place please get in touch with Delta Paranormal Society; sandmangunney@yahoo.com

You guys are stupid. I went to Kellers chapel, That baby you hear, is coming from the house right behind the graveyard. I actually know them, the baby is like 3 years old and has chronic ear infections. Those woods have deer running through them, and there have been some spottings of some mountain lions. That light is a cell phone tower right behind which reflects the light. Nothing bad ever happens there. If you are looking for the REAL haunted stuff, you want to go down Carriage lane, all the way back there, down the gravel road and then you are going to have to walk past the pile of wood and cement, then it starts in very small portions to get freaky, to start, there are doll pieces, all over the place. Heads, bodies, arms, and legs, just mutilated dolls on the ground. Me and my friends just thought it was to scare you done by some idiots. Then we moved on and thought it was stupid, then came to the second gate, and the wind picked up, the trees rustled, we heard a thump, and in front of us was dead bird, perfectly fine, not punctured, just dead, freshly dead. We got a little nervous but kept going and towards the third gate, our friend froze up, and just lost all muscle control and dropped her phone into the puddle she was standing in. And this is legit, she loved that phone, with all her heart, and she couldnt move for a moment, and just started crying. They fished out her phone and kept going, then we heard a girl yell out, like she was hit. Then she laughed. And suddenly we heard stomping, not animal, not human, it was heavy heavy heavy feet, stomping towards us, we pointed all our flashlights at where the noise was coming from and nothing was there but the noise kept coming closer, and another girl broke down into the fetal position and started crying, we then BOOKED it back to the car, running through the two gates and into the car and sped out of there. The girl who dropped her phone lost her shoe, no clue how, but she didnt even realize till we got back to our cars and she calmed down. Then I went home, and everything was fine. Till my phone started freaking out. I started getting messages from one of the girls saying she was going to die, and i kept telling her she wasnt going to die, then she called me and asked why i was yelling at her that she wasnt going to die, and i was going to send her a pic of the messages, but they were all gone, and i started to confront her for it, thinking she did it, but my phone died. I laid on my bed and plugged in my phone, waiting for it to turn on. When it did, i got "Stop trying to scare me." I asked her what she was talking about and she said she started to get "Help me" over and over and over again and then a picture of me looking down at my phone, on my bed, in the same position i was in, but blood was running down my forehead from my hairline. She called me but I never got it, and it went to voicemail and whispered to her "Im going to kill you" She freaked, so i called the others, and none of them answered, but i got the same message from all of them "Im going to kill you". I flipped and knew they were tricking me and went to bed. In the middle of the night. everything on my wall fell, on me, my tv, everything, at midnight, but after that, everything has been fine. BUT i am never going back there, it is haunted, for real, DONT GO OUT THERE, you will either fuck yourself up or get arrested, because it is private property and i was scared about that the whole time

I've been out there many years ago with a group of people on Halloween. Nothing happened that we could tell, maybe too many people wandering around.. I had a hymnal from the church with names of the pianist and some other people on a program stuck inside. There were signs and symbols drawn in the book and of course, page 666 was burned. The story I was told was that someone came into the church during service and made everyone line up, facing the walls and shot each one, killing them all. Then I heard a black man was hanged from a tree in front of the church, by the driveway. Supposedly, you can see him sometimes. Another story I heard was of a little girl riding her tricycle in the driveway and sometimes you can see the tracks where she was riding in circles. As for the boarded windows, I was told someone put the boards up to keep people out of the church.

There's also a story floating around about the 3 gates of hell, which I understood to be part of the whole thing with Keller's. I'm not sure if they're related or not but there's a road not too far from the cemetery that takes you back into some trees and there's 3 gates you have to go through. I went with my boyfriend to see if anything would happen. We didn't encounter anything except getting stuck at the 2nd gate and having to walk back to the main road..

I myself heard about it from my girlfriend while we were in the area Friday night. me an a few friends all went to the cemetery and stayed across the street and saw countless things out there, as mentioned the car will NOT start.. not a rumor, so do not cut the car off, and when walking to the door of the chapel, me and a close friend had felt as if we were being pressured into it and could not turn around, as if somebody was behind us pushing our lower backs towards the chapel, when we got to it we walked around it together and heard screaming and crying and scratching at the walls from the inside, as we were about to run back to the truck across the road, something stopped us in place, as if we were being held there, frozen. cold chills flew through our bodies and it completely ruined our appetites. after about 5 minutes it went away and we went back to the truck an have not been since.

There is literally just a fence separating my neighbors backyard from this cemetery. Nothing Paranormal has happened accept when we were young my brother was disrespectfully running across graves and a headstone fell on his foot, he couldn't walk for 3 days. Other than that, nothing. We have gone in the chapel and it is fairly boring. I have heard stories but I am young so things have happened before I was alive but currently it is just as freaky as a normal cemetery (red light is a tower & the noises in the chapel is birds)
