Restland Cemetary has been the location of many wierd sightings. Supposedly, a monument of a girl named Rosie whom is buried in the cemetery will stroll the grounds of the cemetery at night. She is known to the locals as Walkin' Rosie.  If you shine your light on the statue of the monument and keep it there it will look like she is literally stepping out of the statue!  At first glance it is freaky as all hell!  BUT as you investigate further you realize that it is just an optical illusion.  I have been to this location a hand full of times and have never seen any aparitions.  That does not mean that there is not anything there, just that until I have evidence of an aparition I can not confirm that there is one at this location.  I have taken pictures surrounding the cemetary and in many of them there are orbs.  I took 25 pictures total, and out of the 25, 18 of them  had orbs in them.  3 pictures had red orbs in them.  I am sorry to say that my computer crashed I lost all the pictures I took at this cemetary... I am planning to go back and take more as soon as the weather breaks.

Our Team have just recently come of an investigation at this location on 4/20/2008. We could not find any memorial or statue of this little girl. We did however come across a hedged in enclosure that had some really unexplainable things happen to us. One investigator had suddenly felt a sharp stabbing pain in his lower abdomen and suddenly left as soon as he exited the hedge. Two other investigators had the feeling that they were not welcome to enter, while one experienced a cold sensation on one part of her body and the toher felt like there were children running in circles playing ring around the rosie. There were also unexplainable things that happened in the Vets II portion of the cemetery. Two of the investigators went there and one felt like they had a gun pushed in her back while the other experienced leg pain. When the second team went in there was the distinct smell of gunpowder in the same area. Pictures captured a little girl hiding behind a tree and EVPS captured as well.

My grandmother is buried here. My dad sowed mewalking rosie when I was little I havent been there since I was a teenager. It is definetly haunted. When I was 10 my Grandma died w were at hr funeral there, I remember there was a little girl by the tree up ahead she was hiding and she wore little house on the prarie clothes. She saw me looking @ he and she waved and the onlyway I can possibly describe it is she looked like she washit w a ray gun in a sci/fi movie and vaporized. I freaked out and grabbed my dads leg. He chalked it up to me beingupset my grandma his mom died. When the funeral was over I went wit my rothers to the limo I got in and told them about it. They didnt believe me & made fun of me. I went @ night when I was 18 a psychic had told me my grandma was with me and rosie is with here. I was shockedmy freinds wanted to go to the grave site that night we went. We all saw my grandma sitting on the bench thatis @ he grave smiled blew a kiss & vaporized. I was scared sh@#less so I didnt hang around grandma or not I waS gone!@! My Uncle (moms bro) was the 1st person in the area to die in vietnam. People have said theyhave seen him by his grave he has a gun to, so they say

When we went to Restland there were no chains up across the entrance and we parked down in the cemetery. The last time we went early this spring there were chains across the enterance. I am not sure if you cqan get in there now. Check out our website at freewebs.com/trapsparanormal and a few of the pics we took.

Just for the record, none of the stories I have read so far on the Internet re: Walking Rosie matches up with the urban legend that was circulating around Turnpike Gardens, the Monroeville neighborhood where I grew up, in the 1960's and 1970's.  First of all, the location was Crossroads Cemetery in Monroeville, not Restland Cemetery, and Rosie was a grown young woman, not a young girl.  Our version of the story was that Rosie was jilted by her lover and that she roamed the cemetery at night with a knife in her hand and that she was covered in blood.  Indeed, there was supposedly a certain statue in this cemetery called "Walking Rosie" - it was either a human figure or a human-sized upright shape with something head-shaped at the top - and supposedly it had been found on at least one occasion stained in red and lying on its side in a creek or low spot below the cemetery.  I don't think anyone over the age of 10 ever really took this story seriously - it was just a local ghost tale that we kids liked to bounce off of one another from time to time to send shivers up and down each others' spines.  Nonetheless, I've always felt a sympathy for poor old tragic Rosie, even if the story about her isn't true, and I'm so happy to see that she's being immortalized here on the Internet.  At one time she was real enough - for the local kids anyway.

I live right across the street and have for the past 23 years. never once have i heard, seen, or smelled anything at all from this cemetary...its all just legends. Its not haunted. and honestly, living in Monroeville for the past 40 years, I have never heard of "walking Rosie" the real story is about the virgin mary statue.

I've lived near monroeville for twenty nine years. My whole life. I have many friends who live in the area and one across from restland cemetey. Roaming Rosie is new to me. Other than the net i have never heard of her and i grew up hearing every story imaginable. The commom story is about a mother Mary statue told in many ways. This statue did exist not far from the big pond they have but is no longer there. It cries, it cries blood, it walks. Those are common to stories. My friend many years ago saw them take it out lifting it with a baco or something similar. He told me he thinks they dumped it in the water. Part of the legend supports this but also claims it was back on land the next day and eventually destroyed it. Is this cemetery and its surroundings haunted? Cannot say for sure but have been there many times and nothing paranormal happened. A far more creepy place is St. Patrick cemetery in coulterville. Small but surrounding woods are large. High emf readings and when u leave the cemetery glows as if on fire (the cemetery sits back into the woods). I have wittnessed the glow. Search for coulter cemetery haunt Pennsylvania on Google to read more. .

Turnpike gardens? There is no such place that I know of in Monroeville. Where a bout In Monroeville is it supposed to be? There's an area called garden city, but its houses. And no haunts that I've heard. Om extreamly familiar with Monroeville area. What area are u from? I could tell u places I've investigated. I'm looking to assemble a team. Most my life, I'm 29, I've been doing research on local legends as well as all over the world. Started reading when i was 13 a bout this stuff. When I got a little older i started to go places and investigate. Do u go to places? Right now, aside from occasionally friends or my wife accompany me. Leave me a post here, who ever wrote that last message. If your interested in learning about some local places and what I've found (alot in this site can b chalked up to legends only and even completely made up) let me know. Ill check back on this particular page about restland cemetery. Take care.

Seriously, you never heard of Turnpike Gardens?  It's a residential neighborhood off Northern Pike.

I'm surprised you haven't heard of turnpike gardens, i guess a lot of people don't really know about it. i'm always in the woods and a little down the hill from where the turnpike is, i found a really old purse. it was a michael kors purse, which isn't cheap so i don't think someone would just leave it there lol. i picked it up and there was nothing in it. i'm wondering if someone was murdered or kidnapped there or something like that. who knows, maybe i'm just reading too much into it. i know no one has really written on this board for quite awhile but i'd love to know of any haunts anyone knows of in turnpike gardens or maybe even alpine village. thanks so much
