From disembodied shadows to strange noises and fluctuating temperatures, there is no doubt that Barkeater Chocolates is haunted!

North Creek Union Cemetery

This beautifully maintained cemetery on the edge of town is unique in its layout. Built directly into the hillside, following the natural slope of the earth, newly crafted headstones crop up alongside century’s old epitaphs.

In September, Union is home to GEM Radio Theatre’s annual cemetery walks where costumed actors portray voices from beyond the grave. A resident of note, Mary Persons, resides in a glass coffin within an impressive stone mausoleum atop the cemetery’s hill, towering over all the other graves, so nobody can look down on her as she feels they did in life.

You cannot enter the mausoleum, however, for after she was laid to rest the door was locked and the key was purposely dropped down an air vent!

Year-round the grounds are a place for quiet reflection, a gorgeous view of the Adirondack Mountains, and the feeling that you are not alone.
