Exeter, RI is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Chestnut Hill Baptist Church Cemetery. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
There are stories of the paranormal dating far back into history, a category that Chestnut Hill Baptist Church Cemetery falls into. There are still lingering stories of a vampire that was thought to stalk local people in the late 1800's.
A young girl, named Mercy, who was laid to rest here in 1892. But Mercy does not rest. There have been many reports that Mercy has been seen roaming the grounds. For you see, a devastating and gruesome occurrence happened to Mary's body after she was buried.. Many people believe her body was exhumed and desecrated in a grisly ritual that occurred because townspeople in Exeter thought she might be a vampire.
People who are standing close to Mercy's grave have claimed to have been pushed very hard away, enough to tumble then! Others have claimed to hear strange noises around the grave-site, with orbs and other strange lights in the area. Religiously motivated visitors often stop by to bless Mercy and say a prayer at her gravestone, and it's common for them to smell an overwhelmingly strong scent of roses right after their prayers are uttered.
Some people in the countryside around the cemetery even claim to see the ghost of Mercy walking around at night.
