I have been there. I used to live near konowa and there are no demon horses. But there are ghosts. They are everywhere they are old civil war looking people and some of the people that were accused of being witches back in the day and all that good stuff. These are not nice spirits they do not want to be bothered.

I grew up in Konawa. There are many legends in the area, but I have never heard of this one. Ask about the gravestones in the Konawa Cemetery regarding “killed by human wolves” and the flashing blue light. Ask about the Sacred Heart Mission and the mist that travels across the old school grounds there. Ask about the old lady and the panther who walk the night. Anyone from the area will know these, but I doubt many have heard of demon horses.

how can kids in the nineteenth century be killed in a “bus” accedent?

April says:

August 25, 2006, 3:38 am

The part about the kids may be true…but I seriously doubt if your going to see demonic horses…and there was no such thing as a school bus back then.

I leave near Konawa and i’ve heard many stupid stories. But that has to be the worse! Yes their are some ghost that are around the cemetary. Alot of sacrafices and other deaths have happend there but nothing like that.

Josh says:

September 6, 2006, 2:08 pm

Ok the **** about the bus is stupid because, like others pointed out, it was the 19th century. What I have heard is that it was a cathlic school and that it burned down killing the students. Also just like all other haunted places in Oklahoma it is
rumored to be built on an Indian burial ground. I have heard many stories that devil worshipers used to meet and do wierd sacrifices out there. It is a very creepy place at night. It is in the middle of nowhere. You just have to see it at night to see what I mean. Just do’nt get caught there is a fine for trespassers after dark. There are even cops out there on Halloween and Friday the 13th.

If you do go out there be sure to drive by the gate. It is closed as you drive by it, but when you drive back from the other direction it lokks open.

Having been to hart cemetary myself I can definately say it’s not haunted. It is a rather large cemetary with lots of old graves dating in the mid-eighteenth century. The spookiest thing we heard were wolves howling in the distance. Rumor has it that hart cemetary is mistaken for sacred hart cemetary which is further north-west from hart cemetary. which I have yet to visit.

I went to college in Ada back in the 80’s. We used to get girls and take them out to Sacred Heart Mission. That place definetly has some creepy stuff happening. One night we went out earlier than the guys bringing the girls , we were going to scare them. we walked up on a satanic looking worship service in one of the buildings. they were listening to dude holding a cup that he poured red stuff out of onto a girls bare breasts!! we watched from the window. we then ran like crazy. it is a rush to go out there!!! do it late at night! don’t forget to touch the cross in the graveyard for safety!! I could tell a lot of stories about this place . if you are around there and want a scarey experience , you gotta go! I don’t know what is like now , this all happened 20 years ago..

OK fellows! Let me exlain this to you so you will quit arguing. Sacred Heart Cemetery is in Konawa. Hart cemetery is on the outskirts of Vanoss. I have been to both and both are cool. I have never been to Hart at night though but I heard it was fin scarey. To get to it you have to go down lightening ridge road it is off of a gravel road there.

I went to the Heart Cemetary last night at like midnight, and I saw the Demon Horses guarding the front gate. I had to walk right through them. I heard the children laughing and singing and then they started praising the devil, they started sliting their wrists. Right next to the ghost children were humans worshiping the devil, then one of the people saw me and they grabed me by my wrists and made me sacrifice my soul, then they made me slit my wrists.

OK, I went out to Sacred Heart Mission tonight. It was about ten times creepy. The thing about the gate is right, I saw it with my own two eyes, and the explaination I got for that was that the original groundskeeper from way back when uses your vehicle as his entry to the cemetary. You drive past it once, it’s padlocked and chained. You turn around, and drive back past it, and it’s open, suppossedly by the groundskeeper because he wants you to come in. It creeped me out. As we were driving back by the actual church, I looked over and saw what looked like an old, turn of the century cop car. I asked my friend later, and she saw it too. Apparently, there was a cop that was killed out there, and he’s still there. One of my friends claims to have been pulled over by this cop, with a pale white face and a grin from ear to ear. Can anyone say creepy?

Casper says:

One day, I was walking in front of this place, (I swear this is true), I looked down and found a penny. Picked it up (you know, because all day long you’ll have good luck), well anyway, I picked it up. Then all of a sudden, I crapped my pants. Damn penny didn’t bring me any good luck. So I threw it down and kept walking.

I have lived about 20 miles from Konawa most of my life. The stories scary stories about Sacred Heart Mission, its cemetary, and the headstone that reads
“killed by human wolves” are of local fame. But the sotry about Hart Cemetary I have never heard. I don’t even think it exists.

My wife and i were there years ago, we were doing the wild thing when we saw the eyes of fire from the horses. They made a great nightlite but didn’t see no ghosts. hmmm.

LMFAO CASPER! Haaaaaaa-haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
What’s the story behind the “human wolf” headstone?

wildride says:

November 3, 2007, 11:03 pm

Human wolves were surgeons back in the day….they killed everyone they worked on pretty much….and imagine a body that they operated on! There are also killed by human wolves in the wolf cemetary. There are a lot of haunted places around Konawa…The wild woman and panther run the creek back behind my house! I have also seen the creepy **** at the local cemetaries…..My son has also seen my grandma that died in the early 80’s in my front yard..Another good haunted house is inbetween Seminole and Maud, used to be the Carr City School. Theres several ghosts there.

One night me and a couple friends were out jacking around so we decided to go check out Sacred Heart. We drove around it once and then parked our car on the side. We went up to the gate and was about to go in when a cop stopped us and said “that he just saved our lives”. He then pointed his hand at a bunch of devil worshipers and said that he was to scared to go in and arrest them. THIS IS VERY TRUE!!!!!!!

James says:

I have been to sacred heart cemetary near konawa but couldn’t find the “eaten by human wolves grave” can anyone tell me where it is in the cemetary.

greg says:

April 6, 2008, 2:23 am

I just want to add that I have driven past a cemetery somewhere near Konawa at 3am and seen the gate thing happen. It was probably the freakiest thing I have ever witnessed. Just drive past the cemetery at a normal speed and pay close attention to the padlock on the gate. Then turn around and drive back by the gate and see it wide open with the padlock hanging from a chain but still locked. I had told this story several times since it happened and I’m glad to hear others have witnessed it too.

Samantha says:

May 8, 2008, 4:47 pm

I used to live in Ada and have been out to Sacred Heart! It is creepy and there are tons of devil worshipers in the area. Especially in the Bowlegs area. Do be careful!!

Lorie says:

May 14, 2008, 9:34 am

i use to live in Ada when i was a small child. i can not remember the name of the street. but anyone who lives in ada will know. from Abbots store. take 4th street west about 3 block till you have to turn. go right this road will take you down around a curve with a cemetary. there is a 2 story white house that sits on the corner. i lived in that house for about 6 months. so many things happend when i lived there. my brother was locked in his toy box. when we were moving in. everything we took upstairs was brought back down the first 3 days. and many many more things.

to laynette about the norfolk school in cushing. i also have been there. i have taken my teenage kids and thier friends. i have voice recordings of the kids screaming. my mother went with us. she found an old door knob, she wanted to take it with her, but when she stepped outside the building. she was shoved down and the door knob flew from her hands. ofcourse we left it and left the site. we have been nack many times. everything we can find out is true about the children being killed.

irene says:

June 8, 2008, 9:17 pm

Can anyone spell properly?…Anyway,I think it,s stupid to believe that people could be killed in a bus accident in the 19th century.Duh!And if there is so much devil worshiping going on,then has anyone thought that it may be demons that are manifesting in that cemetary?If you open a door,they will enter.I do beleive there are ghosts of the deceased,but there are also demons,(fallen angels)who will try to bother people if they have had a door opened to them.So do be careful.

Brian says:

June 8, 2008, 9:24 pm

Around december,2006;there was a housefire(technically a trailer home)I didn,t hear any ghosts,but I did hear about two drunk guys getting into a fight and setting the home on fire.Has anyone heard anything about this?It was on the outskirts,…southeast of town.

Crystal says:

June 20, 2008, 1:02 am

Okay, I think I see what the mix up is here about the demon horses! I live outside of Roff, Oklahoma and there is a small cemetery here called “Hart”, not “Sacred Hart” as in Konawa. “Hart” Cemetery in Roff is where the ghost horses are supposed to be. I have never seen them, but I know several people that have claimed to have. My group often visits this cemetery because there is a lot of activity there, we have pictures of strange things we have taken there and we always hear strange noises. And just to add another thing, Haunted Hill at Springer, Oklahoma is real, the car rolling uphill! It happens everytime we go there! That is a place we often go, also. We have some amazing pictures and video from that place! Not just from the car rolling uphill, but from the small rock house that sits behind the fence there. There is ALOT of paranormal activity there. We have the proof on film and video!

Crystal L. says:

June 20, 2008, 1:16 am

Oh, just to let everyone know, “Hart Cemetery” is between Vanoss and Roff. I have lived outside of Roff all my life and we just consider it to be Roff. When you go down Lightning Ridge Road, turn East beside the Lightning Ride Cemetery. Keep going, you’ll see the “Hart Cemetery” sign on the North side of the road. Some people do not believe that this place exists! I have a relative buried there from the 1920’s! It is a real place. Check it out! The best activity takes place after about 1 a.m! I have yet to see the Demon Horses, but I’m patiently waiting…

June 20, 2008, 2:15 pm

I am the founder of G.H.O.S.T. (Ghost Hunters of Oklahomas Southeast Territories) i live in Mcalester now but used to live in Ada. The cemetery is sacred heart cemetery and actually the grounds you go into contain mostly the graves of old monks and nuns. the public portion of the cemetery is up by the old church.
yes I have heard about the cop. There is also a couple who died out there in the 40s according to some locals. they have approached people claiming to have lost their keys and needing you to enter the bushes to find them. I only found out about this because it happened to us.
I really thought that they were sincere they didnt look out of place or oddly dressed. which given the fashions these days who can tell. Anyway I had gone back to the car to get a spare battery when i was approached by this couple in “need of help”. All i had to do to help them was to “just look over in those trees for our keys..” so.. being 25 and alone in the woods because my group was down by the old grounds… i declined. They got a bit desperate but I got kind of firm with them and they took off running into the woods. I decided against getting the battery and went back down and got my group and told them we needed to go.
I told my friends dad who has lived there his whole life what had happened and he got really mad and paniced and was like “DO NOT GO BACK IN THERE!” and lectured me and all of us.
The next time I saw him he told me that he had seen them years ago when he was a teenager and he was 55. So you can imagine the chills I got.
There is a lot of history associated with the grounds and it is really a great place for EVP work and Photography.
I know this all sounds unbelieveable but I make a living out of debunking stories. I was there.. I saw it…i cannot explain how we both saw the same thing yet he saw it 40 years earlier.
I used to take people out there every weekend and sneak them in.
There is a thing about the gate. its the way it sits. Its an optical illusion. If you drive one way you can see that the gate is locked clearly. When you come back it looks open. Its not usually. Something about catholic padlocks.. tough material.
I will welcome questions and tell whatever I can to whomever. my email is

Christin (Founder of G.H.O.S.T.) says:

June 20, 2008, 2:20 pm

James the tombstone yer lookin for is in the graveyard on the road leading out of Konawa toward Sacred Hearts. The one right off the road I think its called Purple Cemetery or something like that.

Christin (Founder of G.H.O.S.T.) says:

June 20, 2008, 2:24 pm

Hart Cemetery is an awesome place for EVP. ive been out to it once maybe twice that I can recall. I loved it.

Crystal L. says:

June 22, 2008, 3:29 am

Okay, we finally went to Sacred Heart Cemetery and checked it out last night! We didn’t go in of course because we didn’t want any trouble because of the “No Trespassing After Dark” sign. We will go back during the day to investigate further, I couldn’t go in the at night, anyway! I got the cold chills just being near it. We wanted to investigate the whole legend about the gate! Okay, it IS an optical illusion, like Christin stated above. Most people just see what looks like an open gate, they freak out and drive off. We actually thought the gate was open, too, when we turned around and came back. We got all excited, but we stopped and got out to look and was disappointed with the illusion trick in the dark. And I am looking for the grave with the “Human Wolves” engraving, also. Where is this? I thought it was IN Sacred Heart! I didn’t see any “Purple” Cemetery. I seen a “Violet Springs” Cemetery. Is this the one? Someone please let me know! I need a picture of this grave to show some people who do not believe it exists! But, I know it does, because I seen it as a child. Just don’t remember where in Konawa! Someone please help!Also, can you go in Sacred Heart during the day? Legally? We heard it is completely off limits to the public! My group really needs this info! Email me at

how do u get there?

Josh o.p.i says:

August 17, 2008, 10:50 am

Well my team went out to Hart Cemetery and Sacred Heart Missions lastnight. I have to say we were a little upset and Hart Cemetery. We went out there and did not get any activity. There wasn’t a feel or anything out there. From the research we have done it seems to be a local legend area. Nothing big going on out there. The best part was scaring off some students that was going out to party. This is just a local party area. its off the road and difficult to find.

Now for Sacred Heart Missions.This place had an entirely different feel. We visited the church and the cemetery. One thing we was for sure about is the house that is next to the church. Some people say Monks still live in there and some say they used to live there. Either way there wasn’t much happening at the church and the cemetery. We then took the short drive down to the OLD grounds. I can see why some people would say they saw the Demonic Horses. They actually have a sign with to lights in it. If you don’t get close enough some people could get scared because of the legend and not want to get close enough to dismiss it. It looks like they have put up a new silver pole gate. Along with the old black gate. The old black gate was left open but the silver pole was closed. There is a sign that says “Do not tresspass after midnight”. Well we couldn’t help but walk in there. We got in about 20 feet and activity picked up big time. When we walked into the area it was dead silent. We walked up into where the trees started and the bugs and animals got very active. They started chirping and howling. One of the team members thougtthey saw a black mass bt wasn’t for sure. From there we decided to get back and get into the truck. once we got back in the truck a whole new activity started happening. We had our EMF detector and EVP on. Our EMF started going crazy. This thing was acting very strange. We were trying to ask questions but got no answers. But we were able to get the EMF reading recorded on the EVP. While in the middle of this i asked our driver to look in the rear view mirror because i felt something behind me. right when i said that another team member said they hard something right out side. As soon as he said that the doom light came on. there is noe explanation to why the light came on. The truck was turned off and no one turned the lights on. At that point we thought it be best to get ut of there.

we are going to go over everthing we have and plan another trip out there. We are going to try and get ino contact with te owners and see if we can get permission to be out there. If anyone has any information please pass it on.

Overall it was a good night. If anyone goes out there just be careful.

Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Hi, my name is elizabeth and i grew up in Wewoka, Sasakwa, Semminole and i went to Konawa several times as an older kid and teenager. i have been to both Hart Cemetary and Sacred Heart Mission and i can honestly say that both places have something going on. I have been sensative to paranormal thing my whole life. i have seen the headstone engraved “killed by human wolves” and i dont think they are talking about “doctors” there are so many things that are unexplained about both places that i really dont think anyone is ever going to get a straight answer about. i have walked around both places at dead hour (which is 3am) and i have witnessed so many unexplained things that it gives me chills just writing about them i have yet to see the “demon horses” but i have seen the “creatures” and its not a sign! SIGNS DONT WALK!!!!! SIGNS DONT HOWL!! i have not been there in quite some time but i would love to go back any one who would like to share their experiences with me plz feel free to contact me at and we could compare notes experiences and other paranormal activity that we have witnessed out there. thank you

I would like to share my story. I grew up in Paoli, and Scared Heart Cemetary is the creepiest place ever!! Back in 1991, me and several of my friends went there and crawled over the fence and had a horrible night. We seen red lights on in the old building in the middle of the cemetery. We got spooked and started back to the cars when several things happened, people or whatever they were started chasing us. They were dressed in white robes and had very deep voices. We all got split up from running so fast and me and two of my friends had to hide under some thorn bushes. Whatever was out there walked about 30ft from us. There were a couple of dead animals laying on there backs with there stomachs wide open. Finally they left so we crawled slowly until we found a path and started running for our lives. I was terrified! I was dressed all in white. You know ,stoned washed Guess genes and white keds, so my friend took off his shirt so i couls cover up with it,it was dark blue. Anyway, we were trying to walk slowly and under trees not to be noticed, trying to find the rest of our group when we seen something far off in white walking around so we got in a creek and hid for awhile. When we thought it was safe we started walking towards the front gate when we seen police lights and my friend yelled my name so i took off running towards them and ran smack dab into a bobbed wire fence. The police had already had them and when I finally walked up the police shined his light on my leg and I had sliced my leg right above my left knee. They told us they were gonna let us go so I could get to the hospital. I had lost that blue shirt and when the guys went back in the DAYLIGHT the next day, that shirt was folded up on the fence where i ran into it at. I need stiches but refused to get them so needless to say i have a scar there to remind my for the rest of my life to NEVER go back there again!! The police also told us that there is rumors of devil worshipers that frequent there. True story, so if you plan to go there, please be careful. There are some sick people in this world, things we can explain and some we cannot. On a side note, look up Centrahoma and the ghost of little Michael. Been there and went to the house. Twila might be there and will let you in the house to witness it for yourself. (verrry haunted)! Thanks for reading.

Cynthia says:

I haven’t been to the Hart Cemetery, but I’ve been to the Violet Springs Cemetery and Sacred Heart. Violet Springs is the one that has the “murdered by human wolves” headstone. There are two parts to it — one is smaller and most of the graves there are for children, it seems. My friends and I went looking for the headstone there and couldn’t find it, so we think it must be in the bigger part across the street (it was too cold to continue searching). I’ve been out there at night and I did see a weird flash of red in front of us. There was no way a red light from our car could have caused it because, of course, the brake light is in the back of the car. That was weird.

Sacred Heart is really beautiful. I don’t know about haunted, but it’s really neat and has kind of a peaceful feeling to it. The first time we went out there we did get stuck in a huge ditch right outside the gates of the mission — look to the left of the gate when you’re facing the trail in and you’ll see the ditch our car fell into. I don’t think it was ghosts; I think it was just bad luck.

I believe this is the real story:

Sacred Heart Cemetery is located east of Asher and west of Konawa. From the intersection of Hwy. 177 and Hwy. 39, go east on Hwy. 39 for seven miles. At NS-348, turn left and go north almost one mile. Turn left (west) and the cemetery is on the south side of the road.

The Cherokee Indians provided the land and work on the construction of the Sacred Heart Monastery, next to the cemetery, was finished in 1877, which included a bakery, a two-story housing building and novitiate as well as a school for Indian boys and a farm. Sacred Heart Monastery for many years was the center of Catholicism in the state. Through out the years the Monastery housed civil war soldiers, the homeless, and many Indian children. On the night of January 15, 1901, came the disaster from which Sacred Heart never recovered. On that cold stormy night a fire broke out in the dining room of the Indian Boys School and swept out of control. Before it was over the blaze had taken the monastery, boys’ school, college, girls’ school, convent, and the church along with many priests, nuns, and children. They were all gone within a few hours, the light from the fire could be seen from over 50 miles away. The entire mission was destroyed with the exception of a few small buildings. The bakery and the two-story log cabin are the only buildings that remain today.

There are many legends in the area, stemming from this horrible accident. One involves several flashing blue lights that circle the cemetary at night. These lights are thought to be the souls of the priests searching for any remaining children to insure that their souls go to heaven. There is a mist that regulary travels across the old school grounds. Some say that the mist is death, returning again and again to capture more souls. Several people have seen an image of an old lady who walks the night. She is not dressed in a nun’s habit, but many believe that she is Sister Agnes who died in the fire and who protects the grounds from the evil mist. Whispers can be heard in a woman’s voice saying “Get out of here!” which may be Agnes warning people of the dangers of the area.

Human forms are not the only entities that roam the cemetary. There is a pair of demon horses that can be heard galloping across the night, whinning in pain. Several animals, including horses died in the terrible fire. Blurs of white can be seen from the corner of the eye, folks say, that could be the farm’s hundred white rabbits that were englufed in the flames. All of these things have only been witnessed at night. However, there is one thing that can be seen during the day, and is very real.

There is a very unusual tombstone for Katherine Cross who was born March 13, 1899 and murdered on October 10, 1917.

If you look at the inscription, you would assume that she was attacked and killed by werewolves, for its says “murdered by human wolves”. However, it wasn’t something mystical and other-worldly that murdered her it was a “criminal operation” performed by Dr. A H Yates. Dr Yates didn’t work alone for a local schoolteacher, Fredrick O’Neal was charged alongside him for the murder of another young girl, Elise Stone.

Little is known about the “criminal operation” and some assume that it was an abortion gone wrong. Others speculate that, as a school teacher who had the trust of his students. Frederick ONeal lured these young women into unsavory activities with other members of a secret club and that the only outcome for Katherine and Elise would be death.

Whether you believe in any of this story is up to you. But, you have directions to the cemetery. Take a look for yourself.

The story that I heard was as follows: This cemetery is in the heart of a mission. That later became Sacred Hearts and then St. Gregory’s in Shawnee. I have been there and seen the cross. It is said that this cemetery is haunted by a werewolf or some other animal. And, that if you stay in the cemetery overnight, at the cross, you will not make it out alive. I was there as a kid. The creepiest thing is the walk in. You have to travel in through a grove of interlocking trees. It is a tunnel of foliage over the path. Check out John Morris’ Ghost Towns of Oklahoma for some good pics.

I went to this area yesterday! It is Beautiful there. Behind the church, off in the woods, there are 2 cemeteries, a bakery and a cabin. Almost everything burned to the ground around 1901. Many children were killed in the fire. The cemeteries that are behind the church belong to the Priests and nuns of the mission. I took several photos while I was there yesterday. I have one that has an unexplainable blue mist. But the cemetery was peaceful and calming. I didn’t see any wild animals there. Just some dragonflies from the spring just past the cabin.

I have been to Hart cemetery at night and in the day. Trust me guys there are no demon horses, I didn’t even see any thing weird. We searched all over in the woods an never found the school. I took several pictures, an no ghosts. I have also been to sacred heart, an although it was very pretty, still no ghosts. Just a bunch of stories to scare high school kids.if anyone knows if the school is still around Hart cemetery, please post a comment.

I’ve been there. I’ll never to Back. There aren’t horses. But there are ghosts. By far the scariest thing I’ve ever seen. One of my buddies thought he’d be tough and spend the night there. The next morning he was staring at the tree and pale. He was talking in some weird language I couldn’t understand. And acted like I wasn’t even there. It was weird. So. If I were you guys, go there, but don’t spend the night

We used to go out to that place all the time. almost impossible now due to the patrol that sets at the church. the things i have seen in this place i am too embarrassed to mention but it was not of a natural nature. the headstone that reads killed by human wolves has to do with a doctor that practiced abortions and he mutilated that girl all to hell. The original residence of sacred hart are the people who founded shawnee and st. gregs university. scary scary place that i always awful stories about.

My home away from home was less than a quarter of a mile from sacred hart, I have spent many late evenings, and even a couple of nights in the old bell tower. There are definitely ghosts, but nothing as urban as “demon horses”, that is quite simply bull****. I have seen a young nun carrying a child from the woods behind the orphanage, if it wasn’t for the feeling of ice dripping down my spine, and my hair crawling off of my head i probably would have rationalized it . I have heard what seems to be the cries of young kids, and walked through very frigid and unsettling spots near the old cemetery , and especially the one for children. I would be more correct to say that you can defiantly FEEL the history of the place, when you start feeling emotions that you know dont belong to you , you are probably close to an area where something tragic took place.

sacred heart is a crazy place to go check out and every time i went out there ive heard stuff but never seen anything but the ground is always soggy and soft if u havent noticed,but anyway me and some friends went out there one night and we were standing by the gate it was pitch black didnt wanna walk inside at night not a good thing to do on a sacred ground but me and him was standing there and something big runnin straight down the path, i know theres cows out there but this was heavier than a heffer runnin towards us i ran and it felt like i was runnin on air and tripped and fell as if i was pushed and while runnin there were branches snapping from every direction, so we left from there pretty fast it sent a chill up my spine to hear something that big comin toward me and i have seen the old cop who played a trick on us and come to find out it wasnt a cop it was a spirit who directed us into a dead street we followed him and when we came to the turn and he just disappeard it was weird but a creepy not and the kid cemetery is a trip to look at and unmarked graves i like the place to take people to to get scared.

A couple of my friends and I were drinking and smoking and we all decided to go out to Sacred Hearts and we heard sounded like two horses on the other side of the trees in the pasture while walking down the gravel road (we parked a little ways up the street from the gate,also we didn’t know anything about this place we just heard it was haunted)we got closer to the trees cause we wanted to see the horses we realized there wasn’t a fence or anything between the road and where it sounded like the horses were just trees as we got closer I felt it seemed like a horse puffed air on me so it freaked me out,the whole time we were walking up this gravel road we heard the horses pacing back and forth,We went throw the gate very beautiful sighting there’s a little pond and beautiful trees,we went to the child’s cemetery and into the fields that are by it got back on the original trail,there is two buildings in the back of the property,The one that is on your right walking in you can go threw the back door(Basement)there is stuff written on the walls there were two beer bottles in the Basement,instead of turning around like your suppose to after the buildings we went threw the gate there is lots of acres out there we heard lots of noises walking threw that trail,I think there is actually animals out there(there was animal droppings)we walked that trail for about 30 mins to an hour and ran into little shed like buildings made out of bricks looked like they were newish,the buildings had things written in them it was weird and then we kept walking and there were many crosses and large rock and we kept on walking and there was like a big hole (pond like)and a trail down the middle of it to an island the trail had vines going up over it like a cave begging us to walk in it,so we did it was dark and scary,we walked until we got to where the one trail ends up splitting into like 6 different trails it looked like a maze or something we were scared we were going to get lost so we turned back around,We went back to the truck and drove up the road there is a Sacred Heart Cemetery we thought it looked scary so we stopped at it and went in there,We went to the very back where it was really dark and started looking at the stones and reading them there was the stone that said eaten by human wolves,The grave looked like it had been dug at by giant pals and there was a pile of loose dirt by it and we saw the top of a plastic (tuba wear) Box so we thought it was weird we looked at each other and we all decided that we should look in it so we lifted up the corner of the lid(shut it quickly) I thought I saw a bunch of soaked rats moving around in the box everyone saw the same thing we were like this is weird so we decided to look again and it looked like dead rats but we got a light and looked and it wasn’t rats we think its a dead body in a plastic box(it didn’t stink),we just stood there looking at each other for a second like weirded out and quiet we all looked around at the exact same time I felt someone watching us and we heard alot of noise like someone fell in the bushes and one of us yelled RUNNN!!!!!!!!! the fastest we have ever ran in our lives and we left……

ive lived in konawa my entire life and never heard this story… a few that i have heard is that the nuns that lived on the mission would get pregnant and drown them in the creek near there to keep it a secret. i have also heard of phantom lights being seen up and down the road near there by alot of people.

Jeanette says:

I think this is supposed to be Sacred Heart Cemetary located west of Konawa. A story was published in Readers Digest magazine years ago about a grave which had a headstone that read “Killed by Human Wolves”. Most people took that to mean werewolves. Come to find out, the grave wasn’t actually in the Sacred Heart Cemetary,but in a small cemetary down the road from it. The girl the grave blongs to died due to a botched abortion, and that’s why it reads Human Wolves.

Yes Sacred Hearts is at Konawa and Hart is by Vanoss. Creepy **** for sure. You also have old Larence School, they closed the road because of devil worshiping.

Ive never been there, but I’ve live in Konawa for years and never seen a ghost or anything close to hauntings.

30+ years ago I was in several groups that drove out to Sacred Heart Mission from ECU in Ada. There was one night in particular that we found smoldering fires in the framing structure of the hay barn near the old cemetery.
Sure, it’s creepy out there but we never saw or experienced anything ghostly, supernatural, demonic or devil worshippers.
I was out there a couple of times in daylight and it’s still kinda creepy.
Looking @ google maps recently I can see that is has changed dramatically. The hay barn is no longer there (but the foundation footing remains), they have installed small rock walls on either side of the new gate to the old mission, and several buildings have been added to the church grounds up front on the “main” road.

I have lived in the area all my life. I have been to this cemetery many times threw out my life age 11-23.

But i also ran into a huge cement figure.

So we decided to check this place out. And as a nonbeliever I went in thinking nothing of it. As we stood beside the old house and looked at this old tree that was completely dead and wondered how that was since everything else was well bloomed. I started getting an overwhelming sense that we should leave. It was me, my daughter and 3 other friends. We started to walk near the graveyard and we heard the most blood curdling scream I’ve ever heard in my life. We got the hell out of there as fast as we could and I can swear I keep hearing growling by something as we were running out of there. Needless to say I will never go back there. I never in my 28 years have seen or heard anything that made me that scared.

Does anyone believe in the sacredness of believing in leaving once a person dies let their souls go be with GOD? Is it not you who also revisits these graves for memory purposes because I promise the souls are no longer there… Or are you Nonbelievers? I am NOT getting in a Spiritual debate of Christianity at ALL but I seem to be able to read back into at LEAST 15names that left comments and I KNOW SEVERAL of you that have had loved ones pass on either gracefully or sadly tragically… For the ones tragically is it not you begging GOD for answers and is it not you to give them peace and is it not you that HE let their Spirits enter into the KINGDOM?
Then why in the HELL do you want to give Santan or his followers the satisfaction of playing mind games?
We ALL went to school, we ALL took some sort of history, yet you seem to either play stupid or ARE ztupid, because your using the world wide web to post ignornant comments!
