The Maple Hill Cemetery Stroll
Maple Hill Cemetery is one of the largest and oldest cemeteries in the Southeast. It contains the remains of some of the most important people in Southern History and every year the dead rise to share their stories in the Maple Hill Cemetery Stroll. I enjoyed a lovely day of history and ghosts this Sunday on this cemetery stroll. Here are some images of the walk.
Sally Carter is one of the most famous ghosts in Huntsville, Alabama. Here she tells her tragic tale of woe.
Talula Bankhead starred in numerous films, including Alfred Hitchcock's famous "Lifeboat". She remembers her last words at the cemetery walk. They were, "I need more bourbon."
Huntsville's Gypsy Queen reminds locals that she was buried with her treasure and any who dare touch it will be haunted by her for the rest of their lives.
The famous cow, Lily Flag, that won the 1982 World's Fair trophy, shares its mooooving story.
