Secor Cemetery


Eldora, Iowa

BUILT: c. 1800s
STATUS: Still standing


The Secor Cemetery is all that remains of Xenia (which was also the cemetery’s original namesake), a town that thrived during the 1800s up until the removal of their railroad left them isolated. People visiting the small and eerie destination have reported experiencing cold spots, feeling like they were being watched, and witnessing an apparition wielding an ax and patrolling among the graves. Additionally, rumor has it that the shed within the cemetery is cursed.
