The Weeping Angel Of The West State Street Cemetery

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Many stories belong to this cemetery on West State Street.This cemetery covers a few hundred feet containing tombstones dating far back as the early 1800’s.Some legends have it that the angel statue moves and supposedly cries too.

Angel statue looks so sad with the eyes looking down towards the ground.I just recently made a visit to the cemetery i didn’t see any tears running down the angel’s face.

The weeping Angel is the main focal point in the cemetery which is surrounded in many ghost stories and i heard from people that the whole cemetery is supposedly haunted.The cemetery is littered with hundreds of broken or smashed tombstones.

There is a famous story about a runaway slave his name was Daniel Walden, he escaped from slavery in the middle 1850’s and he lived a free life in Athens for many many years and he lived under his real name.West State Street Cemetery is very creepy even during the day.That is what you can expect from Athens,OH.I think i will do a much more in depth investigation at West State Street Cemetery.
