The Legend Of the Egg Hill Church

Once upon a time, way back in the early 1800's, there was a Minister who went crazy. He lead a congregation at the Egg Hill Church in Spring Mills Pennsylvania. On All Hallows Eve, the Minister held a special service for his congregation at midnight. He offered communion to the members of the church and their children. The red wine he used for communion was laced with a killer poison. Slowly the congregation started to get a sick feeling. Some of the people became dizzy and even passed out. Others started crying and screaming when they realized what was going on. Once the Minister was sure that everyone was dead, he buried them in shallow graves at the cemetery outside of the church. After completing his dirty deeds, he hung himself in the bell tower. The next day when it was realized that people were missing, a family member who didn't attend the service went to the church to see what was going on. There were graves everywhere...with fresh dirt on top. As the he looked up, he saw someone hanging from the bell tower. It was the dead Minister.
Locals and other visitors say that screaming from the Church members can still be heard, especially on Halloween.


I didn't get any creepy feelings while there. I never do though. I always feel at home in a cemetery. Haunted or not, The Egg Hill Church and Cemetery have a beautiful setting.

Yellow , red, and purple flowers grow in the weeds. Birds sing in the trees. The stones I saw didn't match all one date and only a couple from Halloween in the 1800's.

By now the stones could be gone for various reasons, or maybe no stones were placed there. I have no idea if the story is true, and everyone knows that all small towns have secrets.
If you visit the Egg Hill Church and Cemetery... please be respectful. It is the final resting place for some, maybe more than known.
