Elgin Psychiatric Hospital Cemetery
Elgin, Il 60120

County: Cook County
WebSite: None

Documentation of patients being tortured in the turn of the century era before science understood insanity. They then were buried five in a grave with the name of the body on top marking that grave. All kinds of supernatural activity here ranging from orbs to apparitions. August, 2005 Update: Was actually the cemetery for those that died in the Elgin State Mental Institution. Little activity is found. Area is located near quarry in the back of the sports complex. Common activity is items of all types being dropped and when people look for them with flashlights or under other types of lighting the item can't be found. Than in the daylight they are seen placed on top of stones that were searched thoroughly the night before. January 2006 Update: the cemetery belongs to the Elgin State Mental Hospital. The name it has is the name that belonged to the Hospital before in changed its name within the last 10 years. The Cemetery is easily accessed behind the local sports complex but has the same policy as the hospital. It is Private Government Property with armed guards patrolling, only certified personnel can get back there without getting hit by the fine.WARNING:If there is anyone that is planning on doing anything in any of those locations they must be sure that they have permission first else they will be arrested.

The description above needs to be changed.  The cemetery does NOT belong to the Elgin Mental Health Center.  It is on public property that is maintained by the Sports Complex.  It is very hard to locate, however, as it is totally fenced in and the surrounding fencing is completely overgrown with trees and shrubbery.

The Historic Ghost Tour of Elgin makes this haunted cemetery a regular stop in October every year.  There are some very hostile spirits there and people have been scratched recently.  One woman even thought she was smelling garbage or something that was rotting.  Cameras will pick up many orbs in the surrounding folliage or floating over the rows of identical tombstones.

The plots that the above poster mentions is now easily assessable from the new golf course that it's now connected to. It's alongside the 5th hole tee
