The Saint Joseph's Cemetery is believed to be haunted. Local townspeople have witnessed odd lights and strange shadows. They nicknamed the cemetery Stairway To Heaven and according to many of them, a statue of Jesus at the top of the stairs glows at night. Others say the stories are rubbish and they think the only ghost that is found here is a holy one.
The Saint Joseph Catholic School was built in 1832. It is believed to be the oldest Catholic school west of the Alleghenies. The chapel was built in 1835 and the cemetery was established in 1919.
The front entrance of Saint Joseph's Cemetery leads up a set of stairs to a statue of Jesus. Many people have witnessed the statue glowing and they believe the property is haunted. Some people have encountered strange floating lights and shadowplay in the graveyard.
The Saint Joseph's Cemetery is located at 2617 Mogadore Road, in Mogadore, Ohio.
