Oakwood Cemetery-Spartanburg, South Carolina

Founded in 1883, Oakwood Cemetery is the final resting place for many prominent members of Spartanburg. The cemetery is often referred as “Hell’s Gate Cemetery” for the oft-reported paranormal phenomena. Some claim a woman in white walks the grounds. It’s often listed as the most haunted cemetery in South Carolina.

The cemetery was vandalized, and a skull was removed from a coffin. It was returned a few weeks later.

It’s a lovely smaller town cemetery with some Victorian monuments.
