Lake George, NY


A Brief History: Located at the corner of Dieskau Street and Mohican Street in Lake George New York sits Caldwell Cemetery.  The cemetery was built in the early 1700s.  Many soldiers from the French and Indian War, the Revolutionary War, and the Civil War are buried here.  There are also people that died of the small pox epidemic buried here as well.  In the early 1900s many new plots for this cemetery sit over ancient part of an old ancient Indian burial ground.

Haunted History: There have been many claims of hearing musket fire and the smell of gunpowder throughout parts of the cemetery.  There have also been claims of being shot at and actually feel a bullet whiz by your head, and then able to see a Civil War Soldier standing there and then just disappear.  There have also been claims of seeing Civil War Solders just roaming through the cemetery.  Many people have also claimed to see a white dog just roaming around the cemetery and then just disappear.  Next time you come and visit the Lake George area be sure to check out the Caldwell Cemetery and just maybe you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of something of our past history.
