Time Out Says

Local lore believes this 1740 Quaker cemetery is the gateway to another dimension—and not a pleasant one. Set back from the main road and past a stream that some folks think is the mouth of the River Styx, the iron gate serves as the entrance to a secluded graveyard lovingly known as “The Eighth Gate to Hell.” Visitors agree that the other seven gates don’t actually exist, but that doesn’t explain a history of questionable activity—ghostly sightings, strange noises and evidence of satanic rituals conducted on the stone “altar.” Local tip: Coins left on Marmaduke Earle’s gravesite might buy you a conversation with the departed.
