My friend and I went there lastnight (10-25-09). We drove by a few times on Pinewoods Ave., before parking and walking a short distance to the pinewood ave. side entrance. We took a picture with my friends camera phone and the picture came out with all of these little lights floating in the darkness, lights that the naked eye did not see. Other than that, we did not really enter the cemetary. This was our first time there and didn't want to get lost at night. I plan on going back during the day light to see if I can find the statues. I will post again when I do.
i'm very interested in this angel with no head. if anyone has any pictures i'd really like to see them! please email them to Lipglossxcha0s@aim.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
I have visited Pinewoods Cemetery on three different occasions. The last time was about 25 years ago. I will not go back into that cemetery. We saw some very weird things while we were there. And, after my third visit there, I was stung by three wasps three times (in November). It was my warning, and I took it seriously.
Some of the things we saw while there was the tap-dancing old lady with the red wool coat and the moving statue (followed us past the same tomb stone). Ghost Hunters should come to this place! It is freaky and beyond creepy! And I really don't even believe in this stuff! But when you walk in, the temperature drops several degrees and you hear sirens and dogs howling and the wind blows continuously. Friends had heard the babies crying in the childrens' plot on the hill. Weird stuff goes on in that cemetery, and I WILL NOT ever go there again!
Let me make this post even creepier. The day after seeing the old lady tap dancing and the moving statue, there was write-up in one of the local papers for Halloween. Having never heard about or shared with anyone else what I had seen, the article talked about people having seen both of these things!
What the hell?
First of all there is nothing wrong with that place and I doubt most of you went at night since you will get shot.Dont you realize theres a gang that mark that place as their "Territory" The cops were warning about that after dark they lurk around there.And if they see you they will not hesitate to kill you this is no joke I live in Troy and go to H.V.C.C I was asking around if they wanted to go but most of my friends said the same thing you will die.Because that gang will kill anyone no matter who or what age you are so I suggest you dont go at night.Its fine to go in the day there not around.I dont know the gang personally but what Ive heard they seem to be some "occult" and will kill you if you step in there area Im not kidding.
The person who wrote about the gang isnt joking.I advise for your safety not to go at night.Ask the cops around about it and they will tell you the same.
HI ALL, I HAVE BEEN STUDYING THE PARANORMAL FOR OVER 20 YEARS, I LIVE 30 MINS FROM THE PINEWOODS (FORREST PARK) CEMETARY, I ALWAYS WANTED TO INVESTAGATE THERE. WELL I GOT MY CHANCE LAST NIGHT! 11/12/2009. WITH 4 OTHER PEOPLE WHO DO SOME GHOST HUNTING AS WELL. THIS IS WHAT WE ENCOUNTERED. IT WAS A LITTLE AFTER MIDNIGHT, WHEN WE WENT IN, THOUGH THE SIDE OF THE FRONT GATES, WE WALKED STRAIGHT BACK TO THE MAUSOLEUM, DID SOME EVP WORK THERE, GOT NOTHING, AS WE WERE STILL AT THE MAUSOLEUM FIVE YOUNGER GUYS ENTERED. THEY WENT PASSED US AND UP THE HILL TO THE HEADLESS STATUES. WE WAITED FOR THEM TO GO ON ABOUT THEIR BUSSINESS, ABOUT 10 MINS, THEN WE FOLLOWED OUR WAY UP THE HILL. THE WHOLE TIME THAT THESE GUYS WERE THERE ,WE COULD HEAR THEM YELLING AND BANGING ON THINGS. AS THEY WALKED THOUGH THE CEMETARY. ALSO WE COULD SMELL THE POT THEY WERE SMOKING AS IT WAS TRAILING BEHIND THEM. AT ONE POINT WE HARD A BIG BANG WHERE THEY WERE, IT SOUNDED LIKE THEY WERE KNOCKING SOMETHING OVER, THESE GUYS WERE LOUD AND DISRESPECTFUL TO THE CEMENTARY, AS WE WATCH THEM LEAVE, THEY THREW A BOTTLE INTO THE CEMATARY, PEOPLE LIKE THIS MAKE IT BAD FOR PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF AND MY FRIENDS WHO STUDY THE PARANORMAL. NOW TO GET BACK TO THE STORY. WE WERE DOING EVP'S AND TAKING LOTS OF PICTURES WITH MY DIGITAL CAMERA. WE WERE TO THE RIGHT OF THE HEADLESS STATUES, AND WE HEARD FOOTSTEPS AND THE MOVING OF THE LEAVES ON THE GROUND, TWIGGS SNAPPING, VERY ERRIE, I DID AN EVP,ASKED IT TO COME AND SPEAK TO US IN THE VOICE RECORDER, A, FEW MOMENTS LATER THE FOOTSTEPS WERE SO CLOSE, THE HAIR ON MY NECK STOOD UP, MEANWHILE I WAS SNAPPING PICURES AND MY CAMERA SHUT OFF FOR NO REASON, THEN WE HEARD A LOUD GROWL, I DID NOT GET IT ON MY VOICE RECORDER, AND NOTHING SHOWED UP IN THE PICTURES,. I TOOK BEFORE IT SHUT OFF, AFTER THE GROWL WE TOOK OFF DOWN THE HILL. WENT BACK TO THE MAUSOLEUM, MY CAMERA WORKED FINE AGAIN, CONTINUED DOING EVP'S AND TAKING PICTURES, THEN WE LEFT. ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU, IS TO SAY A PRAYER OF PROTECTION BEFORE YOU GO INTO A HAUNTED LOCATION, AND SAY ANOTHER BEFORE YOU LEAVE. YOU DO NOT WANT TO BRING HOME ANY ATTACHMENTS. THE PRAYER SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, IS WHAT I USE. WHEN I GOT HOME AT 2;30AM I DOWNLOADED MY PICTURES TO MY COMPUTER AND FOUND MANY ORBS, AND MIST OR WHAT SOME PEOPLE CALL ECHOPLASAM, THIS CEMENTARY IS WELL KNOWN FOR THIS MIST. I DID NOT GET ANY THING ON EVP'S. MAYBE NEXT TIME. I PLAN TO VISIT AGAIN IN THE DAYTIME AND THEN AGAIN AT NIGHT, THIS WAY I WILL KNOW MY WAY AROUND. IF U WOULD LIKE TO SEE WHAT I CAPTURED ON MY DIGITAL CAMERA U CAN E-MAIL ME. ISABELLAROSE1234@AOL.COM OR IF U WOULD BE INTRESTEAD IN GOING WITH ME, SEND ME AN EMAIL. THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THE PARANORMAL. ISABELLA
ive been there about 5 or 6 times with my best friend. we've always been facinated and observant toward the cemetary since we were in kindergarden at george washington elementary about a mile from the cemetary. ever since we went the first time, weird stuff has happened to both of us everywhere we go. but recently since we havent gone in a while it feels as if whatever was watching us hasnt been there anymore and we both feel more alone than usual. been there, seen stuff, heard stuff, felt stuff. if u dont believe in paranormal activity keep your comments to yourself.
I've been in pinewood twice,once in I think 06 and once last night.The first time I went in wasn't on purpose.I wanted to go to oakwood finally but my cousin and his friends took me to pinewood instead,which pissed m off.I had never heard of pinewood at the time and so I wasn't scared.They barely made it in and got scard half to death,and I kept walking by myself with no light.They got pissed at me,and so Idecided we could leave beause they were annoying me.Nothing at all happened to me.
Last night was different.I went in on purpose with 3 friends.M,J,&R.We were really worried about being cought until we were safely in and twoards the back.I felt,eardandsaw noting until we were gettingnea the headless angel statue.Then I thought I saw some white thing in the trees.And my friend J though he saw something movin.We went and sat at th baseof the statue,and began to taunt whatever is supposed to be there.Nothing happened.As w made our way over to he masoleom,I started getting worried about the cops agn,and he feelling was replaced with dread as I approached the building alone,because my friends all wondered away.We linked up thankfully in front of it.That's when M heard a breathe that freaked him out,and J actually heard the breathe on his tape recorder.I took a brick as a souvenier and we started to leave.That's when I heard voices and footsteps behind us,and it became hard to breathe.
I am so glad to have gotten out of there,without being caught or atacked.
does anyone know an adress? or directions that could get me there?
I have been to Pinewoods ALOT and we have seen/heard alot of diffrent things there as well as feeling a presence of spirits. Going into Pinewoods on the right side cutting through the little section on woods (at the field on the country club road) if you stay to the right and walk back that way there will be a big tree with a few rows of stones. We have seen a shadow figure standing back near two trees kinda of peaking around the tree. That is where I feel the most uneasy. We walked back towards the headless statues and I had such a heavy feeling on my chest that left as fast as it started. Two days later I went and got my monroe peirced and my boyfriend took a picture (to pick on me) and in the picture we noticed a black shadow standing on my left. In the photo you can clearly see eyes, a nose, cheeks, and a mouth as well as long boney fingures up near its mouth. That hasnt kepet us away and the figure was never seen again. That was all in 09. We go there alot and the cops dont have a problem stoping you. In 2010 three of us went and we were in there for about 15 mins and we seen a cop slow down near the gates ( we parked far away) the cop must of seen our lights before we seen him and they WILL drive through the cementery!! He drove through Pinewoods shining his spot light. We layed on the cold muddy ground for 45 minutes and we ended up going down the hill (near the 2 headless statues) and walked through the swamp and then through the golf course. Its a great place to go if you want an experience, but be careful. Its all mowed and for the most part cleaned up. We have other experinces if you would like to see the picture or have other information email us at email@example.com
I just love how this dude a few comments up coms in and says not to enter because you will definitely get cought.And not to mess with the paranormal because you regre it.He must ot have read the comment I posted not too long before him where I told about how I recently went in there,and didn't get cought,and even made away with a brick fromthe crematory thing.True story.Some "ghost people" are so annoying and full of misinfo.
There is a strong possibility of getting cought no doubt.And messing with the paranormal could possibly be dangerous,but people need to stop being suh big wussy whiners about it.
I was told that Pinewood is an ancient Indian burial ground. Then, settlers claimed the land as the cemetary as we know it. The whole area is now cursed. Is that true? Has anyone else heard that? I was also told the gateway is in the mausoleum, immediately to the left of the door as you enter. If you stand still, you can hear the chanting coming from the left wall.
Are my friends just messing with me? Anyone heard these stories? Just wandering...I am too much of a chicken to go in. The one and only time I parked infront of the gates. I heard babies crying, then saw a dark shadow directly behind the main gate,freaked out and bolted. It may have very well been a real baby crying from one of the houses, and a real person walking around, but my two friends couldn't stop laughing in the car, they did not see or hear anything, and almost wet themselves when they saw my face before I jumped in the car and drove off. Later they told me the stories and I am thinking that they are just trying to freak me out even more.
I have lived in Troy my whole life and been to Pinewoods/Forest Park Cemetary numerous times. First of all it is definitely NOT gang territory! There are NO gangs that hang out in there and you will not get shot! That is the most obsurd of all of the comments on here. The cops do watch the cemetary because it is private property and there are many people who vandalize the area as well as underaged drinking. I've also been told by some close friends that they have encountered junkies getting high and creepy men who were looking for a good time in the most perverted way you can interpret that saying. In that respect yes the cemetary is dangerous but so is any remote area in the dead of night. It is highly unlikely that you will be arrested on the spot or shot by a gang member.
My experiences in the cemetary have been mixed. I have been there in the day time and at night. There have been times I've gone there are night and seen nothing and experienced nothing. There have also been times that I have been there and had the crap scared out of me! Since I have many experiences I'll just elaborate on the scariest visit.
It started like many other times, a group of friends just looking to get spooked. As soon as we got about 10 ft behind the main gate I felt an intense instinct to get the hell out of there and quick. Against my better judgement I proceeded into the cemetary. The farther I went the worse I felt and the more intense the urge to get out got. We walked around a bit and the only thing that was unusual was how cold the cemetary felt since it was the dead of summer and we were all hot before entering the cemetary. As we were leaving I saw a series of things that scared the crap out of me. First I saw a number of small shadows scurrying through the trees in a darting fashion. I was extremely scared but I tried to tell myself that I was in the woods and it just animals. Next I saw what looked like a woman semi transparent floating through the cemetary headed towards the back. Thats when I started running. As I was just about out I heard many noises that were like snarls or growls but they seemed to be right next to me or behind me but when I turned to see what it was nothing was around me. I felt what seemed like a horrible presence all around me. I got out as fast as I could and got far away from there as possible. As soon as I was out of the cemetary I was still terrified but the sick feeling I had the entire time I was in there went away almost immediately. That was my last visit and I doubt I'll ever go again.
