Haunted by the famed "Woman in White", the Evergreens Cemetery has been a paranormal investigation hot spot for years. The 225-acre graveyard is also said to be home to a weeping ghosts, whose voice has been captured many times crying in the dead of night. And don't miss out on the tomb of Jonathan and Mary Reed: When Mary died in the late 1800's, a delirious Jonathan had her buried in a vault, and proceeded to move in with his dead wife, who he was convinced was merely asleep. She was originally laid to rest in a normal grave, and Reed would visit her daily, but Mary's father felt like Reed's reaction to Mary's death was a little off and kept her in her grave. When her father died, however, Reed took the chance to move her casket to a massive vault in another part of the cemetery. He furnished the vault with furniture, a wood-burning stove, some paintings, Mary's half-finished knitting, playing cards, and, of course, their pet parrot (who eventually died and was stuffed). He also installed a casket for himself, for when the time came.
