Within the cemetery is a set of stairs that are believed to lead to the underground crypt of a wealthy family. Thrill seekers who have made it to the bottom of the stairs claim to have had a vision of hell when they turned around. Other visitors to the cemetery have encountered apparitions of women and children wearing tattered and ragged clothing.

  • Buried and Gone

    I used to go back in the 90s. They filled it up with concrete so you cannot go down the stairs anymore. That being said, we went in 97 and walked through the cemetery and read some of the burial stones. One that we stopped to read belonged to a young child that died at 2 years old or so…. on the way back out (10mins later) there was a fresh red rose sitting on it which wasn’t there when we walked passed the first time. This was around 2am so I don’t imagine anyone was out visiting their dead relatives…

  • 13 steps to hell

    In all honesty I have not been there yet, But my mother wants me to go to get over my fear of feeling something is always in the shadows. She is related to Salem witches and has had paranormal experiences her entire life. I would just like to know is it actually that scary. Please contact me at 425-659-6266 with information.

  • In truth

    I have been here several times including Halloween night in early 90s. I just spoke with a guy who lived near by as a kid in 60s when really in its up and comming as far as Urban myths go. Truth about the steps is almost comical about how something can get blown out of proportion. They were like wooden railroad tracks that led into woods that led back to road. You can still see trail they were on. They lead to nowhere. There was never any wealthy plot owner that went under ground lol. And there was a story it was on Ripplys believe it or not and in search of, supposedly doccumented as second most haunted graveyard in world or some such? I have looked for years can find no evidence of truth to that anywhere??? That title belongs to Stull Cemetry in Lawrence Kansas. Slash of Guns and Roses did movie based off their urban myths.those urban myths are strikingly simmilar to Maltby if you read stories. That had a stairway to hell as well. I guess the fact that satans wearwold son being burried there would take the cake of maltbys humble stories ;) It did however historically have church that burned down on the property of original settlers. As far as ghost kids and all the other hype i think that it is all subjective and chemicals play a huge role in many so called paranormal experiences there ;). How ever what is truelly spooky is paradise lk road. The road that this cemetry is off of, has crosses all over the place from poor souls who have lost their life on the road. So if you do try this place drive very carefully!! Make of it what you will. By the way this place has huge generation lineage. As parents partied there when i was a kid. As did the guy who i was talking to today.
