The oldest graveyard in downtown Cleveland is rumored to be haunted. On any given evening, other than a few homeless folks wandering the grounds, ghosts are believed to roam the Erie Street Cemetery. The spirits of two Native American tribe leaders are the cemetery's most popular ghosts.
The Erie Street Cemetery was established in 1826 and contains many of Cleveland's most notable residents. The graves of Two Native Americans can be found in the cemetery. Chief Joc-O-Sot, leader of the Mesquakie tribe and Chief Thunderwater, Iroquois chief, and the inspiration for Cleveland Indians' Chief Wahoo have been laid to rest here. Many burials have been taken place and some have been relocated to other cemeteries when new city streets were created.
A lot of people think that Joc-O-Sot's spirit haunts the cemetery and neighboring Cleveland Indians stadium. When alive, just before his death, the chief tried to return to his hometown in Minnesota. The chief died before he could make it home. Some say that the angered tribe leader cannot rest because he didn't die in his native land. Thunderbird is also believed to haunt the area.
Erie Street Cemetery is located at Erie Street, in Cleveland, Ohio.
