Baby Graves

15 Oct

If your from the Tri-City area then you have either heard of or been to Baby Graves. Baby Graves is a very small and very old cemetery just outside of Kiona. The graves were made in the early 20th century when the influenza virus plagued the farmlands of the Benton County region. It’s main targets were children under the age of 5 and thats very apparent when you read the dates on the few stones. There are many rumors that the place is haunted, I’ve been out there many times and never had any haunted experiences. What I do know is that the land owner, a local wheat farmer that lives on the property, isn’t too keen on visitors. Thats why he recently made some very elegant improvements to the cemetery. The cemetery used to be quite run down and was surrounded by an old wooden fence, it had a very creepy and scary feel. However now its surrounded by a very classy chain and iron fence, probably to make it feel less creepy and end the reason the high school students go out in the first place. The farmer is rumored to come out and chase down unwanted trespassers with a shotgun, once again I’ve never had that happen to me. If you do go, be respectful, its not your property.
