Chestnut Grove Cemetery - Real Ashtabula Haunt
This cemetery was once on a burial ground and since its establishment in 1819, has seen the burial of over 18,000 people. 25 of them were victims of a local train crash in 1876. The accident killed between 80 and 92 people, while injuring 64 others. The bridge's engineer, Charles Collins, is rumored to have killed himself in January 1877. The cemetery has his grave and a 70-foot obselisk memorial to the victims of the accident. People have reported seeing women and men in late 19th century dress near the monument along with a man who is believed to be Collins, kneeling down and saying "I'm sorry."
