Baby Head Cemetery takes its name from a tragedy that allegedly occurred in the 1850’s. As legend has it, Native Americans kidnapped a young girl named Mary Elizabeth from a nearby settlement. A search party went out, only to find that young Mary Elizabeth had been brutally slain; her head impaled on a post. A makeshift grave was dug and the final resting place of Mary Elizabeth forever called Baby Head Cemetery. Visitors to the cemetery have reported strange crying sounds that come out of nowhere and a general sense of discomfort.
