The graveyard in Ashland, Kentucky is haunted there are a few stories but I will put my experience me my brother and another friend had rode our bikes there as it grew dark we decided to walk home because we were tired from riding well as we walked off we heard a low growling sound we turned to see what had made the noise thinking it was a dog or some other mundane animal but as we looked back we followed the sound to a nearby mausoleum which showed a human shaped shadow and it looked ragged and torn looking and it began to shamble towards us safe to say we turned tail and ran (oh and by the way me and my brother was 12 and 10) we never looked back but like I said there are many more stories that go with the Ashland cemetery.

Editoral note: (by Brian_T; 5/11/09) I just uploaded several pics of Ashland cemetery mostly taken around 2 of its paranormal hotspots:
1)The Ann Poage gravesite, one of the oldest gravesites on the grounds (from 1848), which has been the loaction of several encounters with the unexplained and where I myself had a paranormal encounter in Jan 1999; and
2) the Fischer-Ringo gravesite, location of the famous "Lady" statue and the spot where most paranormal researchers focus their attention as it seems to be a hotspot for paranormal/supernatural activity.
I hope to soon upload pics of the old mausoleum and its surrounding area, as well as the section known as "the pit", which are also of great interest to paranormal researchers investigating the cemetery. These images should be benefical to any researhers who need a visual aid to locate some of the primary areas to investigate on the cemetery grounds.
Special thanks to stormybabygirl2286 for providing the most recent images.

I hate to admit it but I was homeless for months back in the mid to late 80's. I used to sleep there at the "Iron Maiden" (Fischers' graves) I hid my blanket & pillow in the hedges around her. They used to be closer to her. The only thing that I ever heard or saw was people with nothing else to do partying around there. I felt very safe there. Happy to say I am no longer homeless, have 3 kids, own a home & have a very good job now! Once a year, I go back there just to thank her for keeping me safe & keeping me company during a bad time in my life. Did I also mention that I am a sensitive now?
want to know how the "iron lady" came about. how builded it or put it there and why?
