In this true western ghost town with a once rich and prosperous history, is a cemetery where the town's earliest inhabitants were laid to rest. The town of Belle Plain was established in 1870, but was abandoned within 25 years. One legend that surrounds the cemetery involves two young lovers. As the story goes, the father of the young woman killed her boyfriend in an effort to keep the two apart. It is said that the young woman then hanged herself over her lover's gravesite within the cemetery. Other have reported seeing large creatures, and even a bigfoot, which are said to guard an old indian burial site at the back of the cemetery.

  • We definitely had some spooky experiences here

    I've never really been into ghosts or bigfoot but I did have a few weird experiences with some friends in high school at the Belle Plaine Cemetary. These have been the only experiences I've ever had that made me question the paranormal. We would go out there occasionally with dates or just out of boredom because it was rumored to be haunted. When we visited the first time we pulled up to the gates and stopped to hop out and the gates slowly swung open by themselves. After pulling in they slowly closed behind us. I didn't notice them moving by themselves the rest of the time or any other time we were there. The air also seemed much colder in the Cemetary, it was already kind of cold that day maybe in the 50's but felt like 20's or 30's there. We also heard weird animal noises that we couldn't identify and it sounded big. I worked at a zoo and grew up interested in wildlife and I have no idea what it could have been, the only large animals around there are cows, horses and occasionally bison on ranches. In a separate visit, very late on Halloween, we saw people chanting in a circle around a particular grave. We had parked at the back and hid when they came in because we thought it might be police patrolling when we saw headlights. After they started chanting around the grave we decided to scare them and my date let out a perfect horror movie style blood-curdling scream. They all ran, even dropping phones and flashlights but came back about 10 minutes later to find their stuff. When they came back they saw us and laughed about it. They told us it was a witch's grave and they had driven all the way from the DFW area to see it but I don't know why they were chanting in a circle like something out of a movie. I'm not sure if it was haunted but it definitely seemed off to all of us the first time we visited, we were all creeped out and everyone noticed the gate, the noises and the air feeling much colder.
