Slagle Cemetery in Pictures

(originally from November 2007)

 

Real quick, a few links! first off, I was shocked to discover that the old sesame street is now deemed unsuitable for children. Really. Go read this if you don’t believe me and then check out the Bert is Evil site for some fun!

Okay, on to the main attraction!

Hubby and I finally found the Slagle Cemetery a few weeks ago. It has a few gems in it, though nothing as fantastic as what a person could find in Europe or the East Coast for that matter. ah well, here are some pics either way.

this looks overgrown but it’s just a damn Yucca plant. I hate those things.

I really wanted a couple of these flowers, but hubby was convinced that ghosts would follow us home or something if I took a couple. No one would have noticed as it was a HUGE spread, but whatever…

    Awesome pics. You’d love Highgate Cemetery, it’s just such a cool place.

    You know, I agree with hubby, could never take flowers from a cemetery, not even one, I’d be convinced I’d be followed by the ghost of the person who was left the flowers lol

    • Joleene Naylor says :

      I know I enjoyed your pics from it! We need a real OLD cemetery around here! Though I don’t know how long ago Missouri was settled… *disappears to wiki* Up around St. Louis is 1750 it says, though no idea for clear down here… We’re so boring, LOL!

    Me and my fiance just moved to Chillicothe, where is Slagle Cemetery? What is there to do here?

    • Joleene Naylor says :

      It’s just south of Bolivar, off of Highway 13. It has some pretty good stuff to photograph, but there’s a better one a little bit north (though still south of Bolivar) that has a lot of great crosses.

      • Nathan Miles Baker says :

        Slagle cemetary in Chillicothe is nowhere near Bolivar Missouri. It is North East of Chillicothe about 10 miles. I went to school with the family that lived on the property and it used to be a place we would go in highschool for kicks. The Slagle that Joleene is speaking of is not the same place.

    The slagel cemetary now in 2013 is almost empty. My husband and i met the owner to get permission to take pictures of where remains of his house was and the cemetary. She the owner was creepy. No crypt or little momentos or most of the headstoned. Especially the slab tombstone. Only mr. Slagel and his wife and kids headstones are there and the owner buried her daughter there in 2007 after her death in an aut
    o accident. So evidentally the new owners of the property removed alot of the markers and crypt of the dead.

    • Nathan Miles Baker says :

      ^Thats the Slagle Cemetary in Chillicothe you speak of, there is another one near Bolivar apparently with the crypt and lots of headstones but not near the insidious backstory.

      • Joleene Naylor says :

        Had no idea there was a Slagel near Chillicothe! Nathan is correct, this is named after the township of Slagle which used to be here but is now sadly about five houses and one road. The other sounds very interesting, though!

    • Diana Travis says :

      Anna – the cemetery Jo is referring to in these pictures is NOT the Slagle Cemetery near Chillicothe. I went to high school there and it was a big time haunt and party place. In 2015 Slagle Cemetery and bridge near Chillicothe off route V made BLT lifestyle and travel blog’s list for 20 paranormal places to visit. No crypt – not near what she has posted here. This is the Slagle Cemetery near Bolivar which can also be seen on “Find A Grave”.

      • Diana Travis says :

        For some reason none of the above posts showed for me until AFTER I submitted my comment. So glad you all knew the difference between the two cemeteries. The one in Chillicothe has quite a history. Enjoyed this blog!
