The first burial plot in Vale Cemetery was dug on November 9th, 1857, for a four-year-old child named Noah Vibbard Van Vorst. Today there are over 33,000 occupied plots in the 100-acre cemetery. According to visitors, however, not all occupants are resting peacefully.

Some people have seen black and white ghosts walking about the grounds, and others have seen ghostly figures sitting in the trees. Eerie lights have appeared, and ghostly signing has been heard coming from the old church. Statues on the grounds have even been seen crying and bleeding from their eyes or the tops of their heads.

  • Don't Walk The Old Section At Night

    My friends and I were headed home on a Thursday evening at 1:45 am and walked past Vale. My friend, a native to Schenectady said we had to walk through so we did. We proceded to walk through just to cut through to the bike path when we felt like someone was watching us. We picked up or pace a bit and just keept going. Not 10 min later, we saw a figure, black, standing near a statue of what looked to be an angel. (At the time we were not filled in on the history and that people have seen the statue "cry blood) We got scared so we were speed walking now just to try to get home. Somehow we got turned around in this confusion and we were standing in front of the path into the old Section of the cemetery. By this time it was 2:30 am so we looked up Google Maps how to get home and it's said if we continued on the path it would bring us back. What happened on that trail was unexplainable. Half way through this trail, already scared as can be seeing the creepy ruins of morgues and tombstones, we started to hear people running through the valley below us. We turned to look down the valley and behind us about 500 yards was a pale blue and white light that almost looked like a figure but you couldn't see a face. We at this point just ran. We heard voices on the hill crying and the footsteps keept getting louder but we were too scared to look until I heard someone calling my name. Thinking we left one of our 4 friends behind, I turned around. The air felt like it dropped 40 degrees in tempature and I felt a cold prick upon my sholder almost like someone touched me. I was covered in goosebumps, scared out of my mind and we all just ran. I swear upon this account and I can tell you one thing, I'm never returning to Vale cemetery after dusk.
