Moon Creek Cemetery
Streator, Il 61364

County: La Salle
WebSite: None

This cemetery is located just South of the city and has been known to have a "hatchet lady". Many years ago, her daughter died. The tragedy caused her to go insane and each night of a full moon a spirit is seen running around the cemetery, tossing hatchets. An Alternate story is that she was a widow who lost her son in a war. She was rumored to hang around Moon Creek until her death. Also, colored mists were seen back in the 1980s. People's vehicles have also been known to die as soon as they drive through the gate. Mysterious fires have also started when visitors have been present.

Well I've been down to moon point which was moon creek cemetery. It was 3 of my friends and I, we drove over the tracks and our cell's and the breath-a-liser started messing up. I had to blow in to the breath-a-liser and it says new breath detected. As soon as we got over the tracks my car died. We rolled to the drive of the cemetery and the car stoped. We all got out of the car and walked to the gates of the cemetery. We could hear talking of a elderly women. When we walked father into the cemetery we also saw orbs white and red floating around grave stones. There was little kids laughing but no little kids around. The gates were moving back and forth, like someone was moving it. Thats when we saw an elder women and man walking towards us. We didn't stay to find out anything else, we got in the car and tried to start it but it didn't work. As soon as all the doors were shut and locked the car stared and the doors unlocked. At that moment the elderly women and man disappered.

The stories of activity are true. The gates have been removed, but there is a small mesh fence near the "No trespassing" sign. We are a group of paranormal investigators who have encountered different phenomenon there including many voices and figures you will see in the back by the woods. We caught a picture of a ghost just to the right of the "No trespassing" sign. You can view the picture at http://pastinvestigators.com/Photos.html. It is the first 2 pictures in the second row. The ghost appears green due to the green light flashlights we use with night vision. You can see a great picture of the road where wee took the picture, the old fence and the history at http://www.geocities.com/moon_armstrong/index.htm. The second picture is almost where we were standing when we caught the ghost.

I just got back from Moon Creek and the Old Salem Cemetery. It was the second time I've been to Moon Creek. We didn't see anything both times. I don't know if its because we didn't go on a full moon or what. I figure she would have came out and tossed some hatchets around for me because I wore my Hatchet Man chain and charm (which is ICP's record label symbol, FYI.) I even have a big Hatchet Man sticker on my back window of my car. We used a Ouija Board on the trunk of my car and that didn't work either. Oh well, maybe next time I'll be able to throw a hatchet up with her.

You don't need to go on a full moon. We have had voices and other activity at anytime, We went during the day and a family member brought a small dog who would no step on one particular plot. We went on Friday the 13th and caught voices at the gate. We also caught this ghost in July 2007.You can see more evidence at www.pastinvestigators.com.

Okayy I have been there before with a group of friends and yeah like we drove through and nothing happened. We even got out and played tag. We were in there on a full moon. We even stop the car and walked pass the tracks nothing happened. So yeah this story is stupid. And i also dont believe it at all. So it ain't nothing.!

We did a full paranormal investigatiion on 10/21/10. Moon was 99% full. We had 0 emf detections,we had 0 evps, we did have an un explained issue with our camera though. Every time me and the other investigator both notice something like a noise or a flash of light and I would aim the camera to snap a photo the camera screen would show lines and fade out and shut off. I tried back at home to recreate it and it has not shut off since. Nothing big but not explained.

I went out to Moon Creek Cemetery during the day and it was eerie. After we were driving driving down the rids that you turn on to go to the cemetery there was a decapitated bird on the road. The head was clean off like someone chopped it off. I think that it was the Hatchet Lady's warning us to stay away.
