IOWA: The Black Angel

The Black Angel stands over 8 feet tall in Oakland Cemetery in Iowa City, and she is black due to oxidization. Most likely because of her dark appearance, multiple legends have cropped up around her.

One legend says that a pregnant woman should never walk under her, or she’ll lose the child. Others say that if you touch or kiss the statue, you’ll be dead within six months.

Whether haunted, cursed, or completely harmless, the statue is definitely a somber sight to see.
