If you're the type of person who believes in ghost, ghouls, and goblins, here are few sites in town you might want to avoid this month.

6. Evergreen Cemetery

Evergreen Cemetery is the oldest fully operating cemetery in Jacksonville, with the first burial occurring in 1881.

The cemetery comprises 170 acres and over 70,000 burials. When the cemetery opened, remains were moved there from the Old City Cemetery and another downtown area near State Street. At one time, Evergreen had a train depot for visitors from the city and holding vaults nearby awaiting bodies for burial.

Evergreen is said to be haunted by several spirits, including the "Lady in Violet," a man in old-fashioned attire near an unmarked mausoleum, and the ghost of a woman near the "Ugly Angel" tombstone.
