Haunted Places: Blood Hill Cemetery
Hollis, New Hampshire
Blood Hill Cemetery. When you hear the name of that cemetery, the goosebumps immediately rise along with the hairs on your arms and neck, and it should. It’s said to be the most haunted cemetery in the state of New Hampshire.
It’s real name is Pine Hill Cemetery. It gets the name Blood Cemetery because it’s said that a man by the name of Abel Blood haunts the cemetery. He’s buried here along with his family (The Bloods.) He was buried here in 1867. It was originally donated in the year of 1769 by a man by the name of Benjamin Parker Jr. The land holds over 300 graves. People have reported to see apparitions of ghosts, disembodied voices, and strange events. Now the question is, why does Mr. Blood haunt the cemetery?
It is said that the Blood family was murdered. Abel roams around the cemetery trying to either find his wife or make his way back home. It’s rumored that he was an occultist. However, further research indicated that the family was not murdered. Everyone died either of natural causes or other reasons. Their deaths occurred at different times and locations. Also, Abel was a devoted Christian. Paranormal Investigators believe that it's haunted because of his tombstone. His tombstone has a finger pointed up towards the heavens. The Legend is at night when the spirits come out, the finger points down.
The most interesting part of this haunt is the ghost of a young boy who appears on Pine Hill road close to the graveyard. The rumor is that this little boy’s family was murdered back in the 1800’s. Could this family have been the Bloods? Apparently, this boy went running out of his house crying for help. Unfortunately, the boy was shot in the back and killed. People have reported seeing a young boy off of Pine Hill Road at night waving people who drive by down for help. By the time someone pulls over, the boy vanishes.
There’s a YouTube channel by the name of Creepy Places that investigated this cemetery. They were doing an Ovilus session by one of the graves. An Ovilus is a form of communication which says words depending on the environmental readings or electromagnetic waves. They got responses saying “Bad” and “Murder.” The cemetery’s reputation seems to heavily revolve around murders. Some other paranormal events that happen in this cemetery are shadows, mists, orbs, unexplained things happening to people’s vehicles, and tombstones morphing. Additional stuff includes trees moving on their own when there is no wind and photographed anomalies.
Is the Pine (Blood) Hill Cemetery Haunted? Are all of these murder claims true? I believe further investigations and research are needed at this location.
