Greenwood Cemetery – Orlando | Originally known as Orlando Cemetery and opened in 1880, Greenwood Cemetery encompasses 86 acres and is well known for its haunted history. Visitors to the cemetery have reported seeing ghostly children playing and laughing among the tombstones, as well as the ghosts of Confederate soldiers roaming aimlessly among the huge live oak trees. Moonlight walking tours of Greenwood Cemetery are available. Don’t miss the chance to view the creepy Fred Weeks mausoleum (the ghost of Weeks himself is said to occasionally wander through the cemetery at night). By the way, Thomas Jefferson’s grandson, Francis Wayles Eppes (1801-1881), is buried in Greenwood Cemetery. Other alleged haunted sites in the Orlando area include Lake Lucerne (home to the “Lady in White”), Orange County Regional History Center, Hamburger Mary’s, Rogers Building, Lake Eola (home to the “Ghost Dog”), Harry P. Leu Gardens and the infamous Interstate 4 “Dead Zone.”
