Ipswich Cemetery Ghost Tour

Many who grew up in Ipswich considered "spook hunting" a great weekend pastime. One of the most skin-prickling places was the Old Ipswich Cemetery.

On the edge of town, opposite the golf course and a former mental asylum, over 150 years this morbid museum of Ipswich's past has grown to six acres; 30,000 lie here. Hundreds of pioneers and their descendants rest in the black soil - all are equal now - businessmen, politicians, mothers, fathers and children. Their stories, recorded in stone, are both inspiring and tragic. Death is cruel.
