An overview of some cases that Shoveltown Investigations have conducted.
Recently we decided to do an investigation of the Mt. Hope Cemetery in North Attleboro, MA. This is the cemetery that is known in the area because of the “Dancing Jesus” statue (See picture above). It’s a great trick of the eye, when you look at the statue, the arms appear to be moving like he’s doing a funky dance. It’s really a cool thing to see! Mt. Hope is so much more than a fun Jesus statue that dances though! There is a lot of activity throughout the large cemetery. Each of us had some sort of experience ranging from voices, full body apparitions, shadow figures, etc.
My personal experiences while there started as soon as we rounded the corner into the cemetery! There was a crypt with a wooden green door that I swore there was a statue in front of. Something kept pulling my attention back to that area and I felt like I was being beckoned over, so I walked over there and there was no statue! Just a walkway and an old green wooden door. The energy in this cemetery is immense in the older sections that we first came across! As we walked through there were certain headstones that called to me that I had to go stand by. One was just at the edge of the branches of a big tree. As I stood there looking at the stones around the tree, I saw someone peek out from the other side of the tree. All the team members were behind me at the time and no one else was there, so I don’t know what that was all about!. We then walked over to one side of the cemetery heading towards trying to find the old keepers house (which we never found) and again I was called over to the edge of the cemetery. This time I didn’t like the feeling I got over there so I promptly left that area. We walked around some more, checked out the newer area of the cemetery after not finding the house we were looking for or a way to get to the other part of the cemetery. Could see the headstones through the trees, just no way to get to them! I’m going back during the day to see if I can find out how to get there! While walking back through the older section I saw a full body apparition walking directly in front of Frank! Amazing stuff, wish my camera was on and could have caught it but I were having camera issues. Once we go through our photos and evp recording sessions, we’ll post some pictures to the evidence page, if anything shows up.
*If you ever want to investigate a public place, please make sure you get permission, let someone know where you will be, and please be respectful of the area you are in! Saw 2 tipped over headstones in the newer section! It costs people money to fix and can be very upsetting to the family. *
