 Achor Valley Cemetery is one of my favorite cemeteries in Columbiana County.  It has great presence when you enter the grounds.  The long forgotten church that stands guard over the many graves leaves a slight chill up your spine as well.  We have not been out here since Feb, and decided to come check the place out on our midnight run Friday April 1. 

  While we were there, a car with several young people showed up and got pretty upset when we went about our business and  wouldn't leave.  They finally left themselves cussing at us as they drove away. 
There are definitely ghosts that roam this area.  I can't say for sure about inside the church, but outside you are not alone.
My crew for the evening was Becky, Briana, and Jackson.  We had a great time walking among the old stones and doing several EVP sessions.  We also heard a strange wailing sound that may have been someone driving across the Carmel Achor Road Bridge, but they sure were going fast, if that is what it was. 
This cemetery is worthy of a visit more in the daytime because of all the interesting stones that mark the graves.  Night time just gives it that added spookiness that all cemeteries have at that time.  Except out here, there is no one to hear you scream......Bwahhahhahhaaa!

Who is the man in the orange coat? He looks like a cool person. Also seems like he would have a taste in old style living. I just notice how he holds his posture, and seems like a kind person.

Hi Clara,
That would be Jackson, our crew genealogist. Here is a link to some info on him and an email adress if you would like to write to him.
Thank you for your kind comments!
