Cemetery: Catman’s Graveyard


Catman's Graveyard in Frankfort, Delaware

Location: Frankford, Delaware, USA
Built: Unknown
Status: Still standing

History

Catman’s Graveyard is located at the end of a dirt road in Frankford, Delaware. It appears to be guarded by the ghost of the “Catman”, whose real identity is unknown, if it even existed at all. Legend has it that the man, while alive, had very cat-like features that earned him his nickname, and he is said to have been the graveyard’s caretaker. Whenever teenagers came to party in the cemetery, he would scare them off. After he died, he was put in an above-ground casket located in the middle of the graveyard.

Most of the graves are from the 1800s, but some of them were buried in 1918. For whatever reason, two graves in the back face a different direction than all of the other graves. It is believed that Catman still watches over the cemetery from beyond the grave. Rumor has it that if you drive down the road and go behind the graveyard, there is a brick wall that if you knock on it three times, the Catman comes out and starts to attack your car, and it refuses to start up.

    1. A man/cat creature is creepy enough (my new little kitten is creepy enough…)…let alone it tampering with your car.
